So, I am thinking about getting / hearing about Divinity II: Ego Draconis. I know its an RPG, its metascore (on metacritic) is a 78/100, which isn't terrible.
I'm reading what some of the critics are saying though, and some of them are just trashing this game. According to what they played on the PC, the animations were HORRIBLE, the equipment is like pulling teeth, and the general lack of polish on the game is rather apparent, with lots of bugs and the like.
The review that sums all this up was this one ~
- This is the very 1st review that I've ever written, and I feel so strongly about the crap-hole-ness of this game that I am writing one now. I bought this game (for Xbox 360) after reading some of these scores and have only continued playing for about 5 hours because I can't take it back. 1st, the graphics. Between the sloppy and cluncky character animations, horrible jumping and the ability to get stuck trying to walk up a hill, and the bright, then dark lighting (supposed shadow effects) I wanna shoot myself in the face with an Xbox controller launcher until my brain hemorrhages hemorrhoids. There is virtually no story, and no opening explanation. Had I not read the instruction booklet I would have no idea who the cliche Damian was, or why I am supposed to hunt dragons.
Equipping your character is like pulling teeth because your inventory and equipped stuff are on a different screen giving you no way to compare which items are better than what you've already got, and the inability to set a main quest with a way point or at least a spot on the map makes me want to travel to Larian Studios, and personally choke the developers with my towel rack. Only the main quests have a spot on the map, not any of the side quests, which by the way are required! At every turn I found myself getting raped because of higher level creatures. So going back to find quests to level up is horrid, and the creatures don't re-spawn or give very much XP. Oh, and loading problems (freezes while loading a save so that you have to restart the game through dashboard). And the game runs on my Xbox like Crysis on my PC, slow, sloppy, and laggy. Crap, absolute vomit inducing tard-tastic. Borrow or rent before you through $60 in the bidet.
For a game that everyone on these forums was talking about so much, I was rather surprised, because many of the reviews I read were like this. I have a hard time balancing out the good reviews from the bad, so I ask you, are all of these real issues with the game?
