This review is from: Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
Gameplay: Inventory and ability systems take a little getting used to...lots of detail in the ability scores and talent trees...but aren't bad. Once you get to a certain point in the game you can even reassign all your skill points if you don't like the way your build is performing against the tougher creatures. Combat is, by contrast, is very easy to get the hang of, but has enough variation that it doesn't get boring. For most of the game anyway.
Graphics/Sound: Decent graphics for the age of the game, particularly after being re-vamped a bit with the release of the Saga. Animations are a little basic, but aren't jarring. Sound is also good, but voice-acting is largely B-movie grade. For me, that's fun, but might not be everyone's cup of tea.
Story: Without giving much away, the story is a nice variation on the lowly-recruit-rises-to-great-power theme. Definitely engaging enough to keep me interested. Certain events definitely make you thirst for revenge. NPCs largely react to you the same way no matter your character class, gender, or previous decisions (there are a few exceptions to this). This, for me, limits interest in a second or third playthrough.
