GameShard steps up with the latest review of Divinity II: Ego Draconis, in which they award Larian's RPG sequel a reasonable score of 7.0/10.
Divinity 2 has its share of ups and downs, but in the words of Alan-a-Dale, (sometimes ups outnumber the downs.) Perhaps developers Larian simply strove for too much- but for every part where they didn't quite deliver, there are numerous parts where they did, and how. Divinity 2 manages to feel different and fresh in what has become a fairly stale genre, innovating in unexpected ways and delivering a huge, varied game that's easy to sink hours and hours into. It's not always perfect- it can be downright frustrating at times- but for the most part, Larian have created an entertaining and surprisingly charming title.
