(Edit: Metacritic is being updated, 19 reviews so far with a 93 score. http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/divinity-original-sin-ii---definitive-edition )

I'm sure it's also fantastic on PC but I've waited for it on ps4 to have vouch co-op and the ease and feel of the controller gameplay which Larian implement to a degree that makes it somehow more enjoyable. Most of all though I've waited for the full finished, final version and Larian have provided perfection with overhauls to almost every aspect of the game. (Even rewriting act 3 I've read)

 

I just finished act 1 and after 40 hours or so, I'd imagine accounting for AFK time on my 50 hour save. I'm wildly impressed, so much so that there isn't one inch of the game I can not critique too heavily because it feels like perfection or at least very close to it, the things I do somewhat criticize feel like nit picking. 

 

I had a glance at Act 2s anf 3s maps and the scope and scale feel as if to dwarf DOS1. 

 

My query to you folks is have you played the early Act 1 BETA of the definitive edition or have you played on PC and and intend to revisit th3 final edition, or not? Or have you never played and plan on entering the series as a newcomer, or not? 

 

And if you have played, what are your thoughts?

I need to look at it closer - the main negative for me is I know its a huge game and theres a lot of games coming that I'm going to want to play (probably). Does it also have a lot of text/reading/etc.?

Otherwise, it looks right up my alley. Finisllhing up Octopath Traveler now, but hopefully will be done in the next week or two.

Everything is fully voice acted as with the enhanced edition of the first game and has an incredible narrator for everything else. It's a huge leap over the original release on a year ago in all aspects like that and depending on difficulty it's a choose based adventure like skyrim so you could power through it ignoring the vast majority of content and probably cut it down to 15 hours for act one compared to my 40 hours on normal doing every bit of content or I'd imagine 50 or 60 hours on hard.

I'm sure I'd end up loving it and wanting to do all the side quests, etc. So I'd be surprised if I don't pick it up at some point - it probably just depends on how well games like Spider-Man and Valkyrie Chron 4 review. I could end up buying it next week if Spider-Man ends up not being up my alley, but otherwise it may not be till Christmas and after I'm done with RDR2. Great to hear it turned out great though - I've been really anticipating watching the reviews for it. If it's as good as you say, I probably should get it soon as I still have a Best Buy Rewards Membership so I could get it for 20% off.

Shit yeah. You're right. I keep forgetting this Autumn is jam packed. So much gaming time to make room for.

I am looking at this game with interest but it's not for me.I just can't stand top down games but I'm hearing nothing but good things about this game.



Havnt played it but i heard amazing things about it. I need to check it out.



The first one on PS4 was great and while it undoubtly plays better on PC, I loved it. I pre ordered this one on PS4 and I look forward to play it.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

The game is huge and you can create your own maps etc  but also everything matters in the game it is very open your race means different kind of sidequests open up, some characters will not want to join your party depending on your decision, honestly if you have a friend or three play with them, I would call this the best multiplayer RPG.  On pc it had 93 metacritic wise wonder what what the console versions will get.






Wish I could play this. I still remember beating the original Divine Divinity years ago.
