    The remade one, Dragon Knight Saga. Was much better than the demo for the original version I tried like a year ago. Smoother. Game is optimized well, I rarely went below 60FPS. (Though the game didn't feel smooth at all.)

    Fun combat, interesting story, and to my surprise, some REALLY good voice acting that puts alot of games to shame. All the quests had voice acting, too, and were detailed and really fun.

    Sure, it's not like your choices make to much of a difference...but it is fun to get 3 drunk guards in trouble and have them sent into the forest as punishment to patrol, come upon them fighting a giant troll and dying. Being a Dragon is fun. It reminded me of Drakengard, a excellent PS2 game you have to play if you haven't.

    I was surprised, cause the intro area sucks, but it really picks up. Much funner than Dragon Age, and about on par with Dragon Age 2.

    I recommend anyone looking for a good RPG to play Divinity 2. It's feels like a blast from the past...it made me feel like Diablo 2 all over again. Mind reading was fun.

    Makes me want to go play Divine Divinity now, just so I can get more of the story, and it doesn't look like that bad of a game, either. 82/100 on Metacritic, same as DA2. :p

    Divine Divinity is an excellent RPG. What I find very good is that the game doesn't level with you and some dungeons are hard. You level up and then you own them. It gives you that satisfaction that actually leveling up has a meaning.

    Only the main character casts a shadow anyway, none of the other enemies or NPCs do!!! At least they don't on my system. I've often wondered if that was a bug or not.

    The game is good but it, oddly, loses it appeal once you get to "transform" and I grew tired of it. It also has a very high difficulty curve at the start then suddenly becomes very easy two-thirds of the way through. I'd give it 6 or maybe 7 out of 10.

    I got it on xbox, but the load times were too off putting, might play it on pc later.

    I really liked the game, but had a weird bug preventing me collecting all of the scorpion armour set. Was a bit annoying.

    After reading your post Ive given this game a chance and its really fun relaxing game, but I cant agree with your comment on voice acting - it is really poor, like in some c-class low budget game. And music is weird, especially the one from first village you visit - sounds like soundtrack to some 70s porno movie. But the gameplay is extremely fun, and its not like DA2 where you just fight your way forward, you actually have to use your brain from time to time, which is good. Worth the money in my opinion - the package contains enhanced/fixed Divinity 2 + an addon (I didnt knew that, I just bought it blindly :D

    I've been eyeing this game for a while now. Have been uncertian just because I haven't really heard anything form people who have played it. I'm definitely going to give this a try now. BTW roughly how many hours does this offer?

    Well, I didnt count but I installed it almost a week ago, and its sharing my time with Shift 2. Its maybe 20 hours (just a guess), but i am yet to finish main game (almost done) and there is still an addon.
