I tried the demo for Divinity 2 and it just feels very.. unpolished, I think is the word. It just screams "average rpg" in every way, from graphics to voice acting, to the combat. That's just the demo of course, but I'm just not willing to risk 30 bucks (I think it costs that) for that kind of demo experience.
The same with Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. That game got tons of hype, it's a lot like Fable, and it just feels so average and bland.
Going to say this again (like my 4th time in this thread) if anyone is looking for a straight up awesome, amazing game to play, hit up Shadows of the Damned, that game blew my mind considering nobody played it and it sold like 25k copies which is horrible. It's a AAA title for sure, hell that was my third favorite game of 2011 - Deus Ex - Skyrim - Shadows of the Damned - in that order.
Can't blame you for that. I had that kind of experience when I played Dead Island. Unfortunately for me I did pay $40.00 for that experience.
I guess what I really like about Divinity 2 is that it does have a certain kind of charm to it. The more I played the more I got into the story. Ultimately I found it to be a fun RPG to play. I guess my recommendation is if you are unsure if this game is for you then try renting it first to make sure.
You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
