GamerDad doesn't hand out any score, as usual:
Divinity 2: Ego Draconis is rated M for Mature with ESRB descriptors of Blood, Suggestive Themes, and Violence. While there is a lot of hack and slash style violence, the blood isn't overly gratuitous or anything. The suggestive themes come in the story and dialogue when dealing with some of the female cast. And you can also de-equip your female Dragon Slayer and have her run around in her undies if you wish. Older teens who are used to the antics in Fable or Dragon Age would probably be OK with Divinity 2. But because of the steep difficulty and complexity of the game, it's probably best for older gamers anyway.
Fragland gives it an 80%:
As final conclusion I can only say that the game will be able to keep plenty of RPG lovers busy. Due to the variation with ground and air combat and the possibility to find countless treasures by reading minds, the Belgian developer shows to have more than enough knowledge to make decent games!
Tech-Gaming gives it a "B-":
At times Divinity II: Ego Draconis seems far removed from its heavenly moniker, with its intermittent crashes, and irregular visuals. However, the title does hold a gargantuan amount of gratifying quests, along with satisfying combat that varies over the game's lengthy campaign. Fans of open-ended Western role-players like Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion should consider taking an extended expedition through Divinity II's inspired realm.
And PopMatters gives it a 9/10:
Despite the game's issues, I love it to death. It is not as serious (and thus, allows for a lot more levity) than Dragon Age, yet it calls to mind older, more endearingly complicated CRPGs. This is the kind of game that doesn't get made anymore. It might be fully 3D, and it might be over-the-shoulder, but Larian has produced a firmly self-absorbed, refreshingly focused RPG offering. It doesn't pander to anyone but itself, and it is the better for it.
