Divinity: Original Sin is an isometric-ish western-style RPG in the style of the old-style classics like Baldur's Gate. And, just like Baldur's Gate, it's incredibly good. That's really it. All you need to know. If you're the one guy on the planet who played Baldur's Gate and didn't enjoy it, please move along. For the rest of you? Come with me on a mystical journey into a magical realm... of adventure!
Even setting aside its position on the shoulders of the giants of yesteryear, Divinity: Original Sin has a pedigree all of its own. Being the seventh game in the series (if my maths are correct) which includes, among other things, a RTS combined with a jetpack dragon flight simulator. For me, though, I'm coming at this whole thing cold. Never played one before, and I've always sort of got them mixed up with the run-of-the-mill RPG series Sacred (because of the names). But they are not the same beast.
It's really great. It's so clever. Really, a top game. These are not just things I'm saying here in the review - they're phrases I muttered under my breath as I was playing it. Always a good sign. Of course, there are a few small issues to criticise, but I wonder if they haven't just put them in to give journalists something to talk about in the spirit of giving a balanced view. Sometimes, things are a little tough to click on - selecting the right person to attack in a busy melee when the sprites are slightly moving can result in sending your archer charging into the fray instead of firing an arrow sometimes. Inventory management, particularly when trading, could certainly have used a lick of paint to streamline things a little - it can take forever to shuffle the right seller to compare weapons, for example, and each character has their own gold rather than it being automatically pooled.
But such trifling concerns really don't deserve your attention. This is a modern RPG classic that screams for your attention if you have even a passing interest in the genre. Clever, in-depth, engrossing and just utterly wonderful.
You could almost call it divine.
