3.0 out of 5 stars Unique but often boring and unpolished July 7, 2004
I like Larian studios because they are a small-time studio that gets no PR, so it's not real easy to write this mediocre review for this game. I loved Divine Divinity and I gave it five stars. I wanted to love Beyond Divinity too, but I'm disappointed. The game is still solid and it can tide you over for a long time, but the game never really pulls you in and captivates you. I think that the key to making a successful follow-up game is to figure out what was great in the previous game, carry it over, and then add good new features. I give Larian a B- here. This game lacks the epic feel and attention to detail that made Divine Divinity great, and it suffers because of it.
The game starts off with an interesting premise - you are soulforged to an evil Death Knight - somebody who should be your mortal enemy. The Death Knight is your unwilling companion until you can undue this curse. Unfortunately, the story isn't as interesting as it sounds. You spend the game trying to undue the curse, but the game is straightforward and lacks interesting twists or side stories. The Death Knight does have a lot of funny dialog, but his voice sounds horrible. The voice actor who does the voice sounds exactly like Serious Sam. Imagine Serious Sam yelling at you "YOU HAVE NO BRAINS - HUMAN!!!", and that should give you a feel for how comical the Death Knight sounds. Most of the voice work is bad, and the game ends up being unintentionally funny sometimes, because of this.
The game doesn't have many interesting quests or areas to explore either. So many quests in the game are simple "fetch this necklace being guarded by this monster" types. Half of the tasks in the game require you just travel a few inches on the screen and enter some small cave to complete.

Beyond Divinity (BD) is the sequel of recent great RPG "Divine Divinity." As much as the newest game in the series has a much better title (must say that Divine Divinity is a bit to rethoric), the gameplay doesn't really get better.
Let's examine che characteristics of this game:
Story: 9 out of 10.
Great main story going on. You command both a hero and an anti-hero: a Paladin and an Avenger (unholy Paladin). Their fates are tied together, so if one dies, both die. I don't want to spoil too much, but, in my humble opinion, the main story line is well developed and scripted.
Graphics:
8.5 out of 10. BD has a good blend of 2D and 3D graphics to it. Looks very much like a mix between Diablo II and games from Bioware's Infinity Engine (Baldur's Gate, Fallout, Planescape, IceWind Dale II). Special FX from magic and similar powers are very well done.
Sounds: 7 out of 10.
Hmm, could be done a bit better but overall satisfactory.
Gameplay: 7 out of 10.
Here is where I find the major flaws of the games.
For first, the game has the real cool feature that environments are highly interactive and fun to explore. This, while fun at times, becomes a major pain when a quest assigns you to find a particular object and you end up "mouse hunting" the whole screen. I couldn't find any key that would highlight interactive objects in the environment, and this made me go insane from times to times.
For second: the game feature a Diablo-style random dungeon generator. This generator is not well implemented and since it is used only for "side quests" you really don't have to do I would avoid totally going for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning - does NOT include Divine Divinity June 15, 2004
If you're like me and are planning to play both Divine Divinity and Beyond Divinity in order, you may have heard that Beyond Divinity actually includes the original Divine Divinity as a bonus. While this is true, it's only in specially marked boxes and not all merchants sell them. I ordered Beyond Divinity from Amazon, assuming that it was guaranteed to include Divine Divinity, but my box didn't have it. I don't mind paying for the original game (I just ordered it a few minutes ago), but I wish I had known that Amazon was not selling the bonus edition before I ordered Beyond Divinity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Divinity Divinity May 9, 2004
By A Customer
This game is such a refreshing change from the dry and listless RPGs that have been released of late. Humor abounds, and once again, I am loving the Divinity universe. New with this game is the ability to play after finishing the main game - one can visit the Battlefields for new quests indefinately. It is so wonderful to be able to interact with most everything in the game and to hear the comments of the Death Knight, imps or skeletons - that know you're the not always so bright hero. Professionally done voiceovers make it decidely better than the demo, and kudos to the Larian team for listening to their fans.
The background music is again composed by the most talented Kirill Pokrovsky, and it is a delight. This game can be played by a newcomer on the easy level, or on the most difficult setting by the most adept, with two settings in between. Don't miss this one!

2.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Boring May 4, 2005
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
It's rare that you'll find a bad review of a game here at Amazon from me, but I have to speak up about the woeful Beyond Divinity. A sequel to the much-heralded Divine Divinity, BD is an amateurish romp through a bunch of static landscapes that holds no value, unless you like getting annoyed. The main story line is decent and unique, bringing two characters together in a "soul bond," which causes them to act as one, or die together. You control them both and it's nice to craft the characters any way you want, but limiting it to three basic flavors (warrior, rogue, or wizard) is kind of lame and doesn't allow for much customization since you'll spend most of your time fighting yourself to decide which items to carry to alleviate your "encumbrance." Yawn.

The dialogue is awful, esp. the Deathknight under your control, and I really don't need to hear from every Imp I encounter.

The game tries to be Diablo (much like the first Divine Divinity), but it just doesn't have the polish that Blizzard puts into all of its titles. The Battlegrounds feature is a complete distraction from the main storyline and because it's "randomly generated," you may find yourself trudging on and on in a dungeon, only to realize the item you seek is in the third level of another dungeon in that same Act's Battlefield. Blah.

Inventory management, graphics, sound, and overall gameplay really hamper this game from being any fun. I suggest Diablo II if you like hack 'n slash RPGs on the PC, or if you have a console, the Champions of Norrath or Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance series are very well done.

Despite the $20 price tage, save your money and look elsewhere.
