" Divinity: Original Sin is one of the most rewarding RPGs to come along
in years. Its quests and combat compelled me to think hard about my
actions and choices, which is more than I usually get to say about
contemporary RPGs. Its depth, personality, and combat challenges easily
allow it to hold its own against the likes of heavyweights like Dragon
Age: Origins. These systems invite constant experimentation throughout
dozens of memorable hours of combat and cheeky storytelling, and its
rich modding toolkit provides the framework for enjoyable player-made
adventure for years to come. "
" Divinity: Original Sin is hands down the best classic-style RPG in years.
It's obviously not Ultima 8 in name (and that's probably for the best,
because the Ultima 8 we got in reality was bloody awful). It is, however,
in every way that counts, the best successor ever to those classic journeys
to Britannia, and a triumph on its own terms as a modern RPG with no
shortage of fresh ideas. "
" Complex yet approachable, nostalgic yet modern, cliché-ridden yet
strange and singular in so many ways. It captures the feeling of a classic
'90s PC RPG but simultaneously turns each assumption about plot,
setting and combat mechanics on its head...one of the deepest and most
unforgettable games I've played all year. "
" Little by little, you learn the rules--and little by little, you wonder why
there are so few games so willing to trust you to examine and explore.
That it believes in you is Original Sin's greatest achievement, and given
its many achievements, that's high praise indeed. "
" Embrace the lack of handholding and complete freedom, and you have an
incredible title that provides many hours of entertainment. "
" A little obtuse in places, but otherwise this is the best new RPG in years. Demands
your time and your brain, but it's worth it. "
" It’s a wonderful love letter to the halcyon days of RPGs, but also creates new standards for others to follow. In short, it’s incredible. "
" Divinity: Original Sin is the direct descendant
It might have its limitations, but it's still probably the best modern
rendition of a classic PC role-playing game, one that is born out of love,
and one that will surely stoke long-dormant passions for the genre, as
well as spark some new ones. "
