Title
something close to a miracle
Divinity Original Sin is such an incredible WRPG. It does so many things well. First, the turn based combat system makes the fights really enjoyable. I wasnt expecting the game to be all that good in the combat department (as most wrpgs arent), but this game nails it down. It encourages the player to find the best party composition in order to take full advantage of environmental artifacts and spell combos. I loove the lag when a big explosion occours, which usually means im doing a good job (except the times where an ally got caught in the middle of the blast). The loot is great as well, and a really important step in making a good team.

Apart from the combat, the world is openish, since you are free to go anywhere, but due to high level enemies there is clearly an optimal path to take, particularly in the beginning of the game. The humours writing is very charismatic, and the sort of world it builds is the sort of world where anything can happen (even meta comments about the genre) and it still feel tight together. The story itself does fall a bit flat towards the end, but i didnt find that too much of a problem. Visually it offers a sort of timeless cartoonish style, which will hold up very well. Its a colourful game, which reflects its brand of humour.

There are however a few flaws. Some of the puzzles and quests are simply too obtuse. Some puzzles in particular ask you to press hidden switches which are only highlighted when the cursor hovers over them. Even with guides i found finding some of them hard. This is a long game, and did play the majority of it with the hellp of a guide in case i got stuck, and its little issues like this that can make people give up on the game. Which would be a mistake, since this is the best game of 2014 i have played so far. Its just one of those you can feel all of the passion placed into the work. Lets hope larian studios gets another shot at this brand of game.

    This game has horrendous writing. Everyone is written as if they're supposed to be mocked, and i don't think that comes off as cute.

    As much as the Enhanced Edition improves things, I miss "Sheep's Cheese! Halibut! Tomatoes!"

    Also, I think a lot of the old school tracks from Divine Divinity and Divinity II (not to be confused with Divinity: Original Sin II) were replaced.

    I put 50 hours into it then put it down because I hated how tedious it became, and didn't particularly like the writing either. Divinity Original Sin II is MILES better than this game.
