You guys missed a golden opportunity with the mind reading in this game. From what I played of the demo, that was pretty much the only good part.

What's sad is that over the weekend I almost bought this game because I thought it looked so amazing in the screenshots. So with that in mind I have to say thank you, Giantbomb. Have I ever told you that you're my hero?

If this game was made by college students i would be impressed but to have someone release this to the public and for MONEY thats just a disgrace. That game needs to be in development for another year or 2

Looks like it could be an ok game for the PC.

I really loved Divine Divinity but this... how can they even release it. Is the PC version just as bad? I had such high hopes, such found memories of the first one.. :'(

Played the demo and there is something wrong with the animations and physics in this game. They're not just bad, they're broken. Animate at a much lower framerate than the rest of the game.

the game looks a little more polished than the demo, but pretty much everything else looks just as bad

Divinity II: Ego Draconis is actually a very challenging and rewarding CRPG. It could've used a tad bit more polish, but if you're into deep and satisfying euro flavor RPG's, you can't go wrong. This is a gem.

Since I'm not an American, but rather Swiss and the statement is somewhat true - the German speaking demographic (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) is truely into RPGs like Gothic and Risen and I myself enjoy this type RPGs myself, I feel quite entitled to label us in such a manner.
 
Look racism, sexism and whatever -isms you can come up with - they are usually based on facts, like the fact of the bi-gender makeup of the human race - the seperation of the species in males and females.
 
Whereas 'non-tolerance' for such attitudes comes from idealism aka wishful thinking. As in saying there is no difference between males and females - even if we are clearly different.
 
I don't say either is a good or bad thing to do or think. Or that a factual difference is a reason to value somebody or something less.
 
I just say what's on my mind. Like German gamers generally love exploration focused RPGs like Gothic, Risen or... Divinity 2.

Nothing like having a group of people goof on a game while it's being played.
Believe me, it's not as bad as they would have you believe.
It's a hard game, with a clunky frame-rate, but that's about it for the bad points.
 
I bought Darksiders, Bayonetta and Divinity II on the same day....
Divinity is the one that I'm having the most fun with.

I'd be proud if I was part of a population or culture that mostly played RPGs, instead of soulless FPSs.

This game feels like it should have a weirdly devoted eastern european fanbase built up around it like it was Gothic or something. That's the vibe I get from it at least. Doesn't look very good though.

I was really hoping this game was going to be decent, but It doesnt seem to even hit that mark.  Guess I will pass.  Not that it really matters, ME2  is out in two weeks!

I played the PC demo and it seemed to be quite a bit more polished and fun than what you guys experienced with the 360 version. It still didn't strike me as a game I have to play or own. The story, leveling and fighting just seemed fairly mediocre. It has some nice dialog options and occasionally a really nice sense of humor, but that's not enough to make me buy it...

Many are trashing Divinity II like it's the worst game ever. This hate is unjustfied. The PC version has gotten great reviews, while the 360 version has received mixed reviews (but nowhere near the horrid trash some are trying to make it out to be).  
 
Of course, though, I expect quick and harsh uneducated assumptions on games that some never intend to play. It's easier to write something off with pretentious hogwash than actually give it the time of day.  
 
Gamers stink this generation, I must say.

Two Worlds was a shitty game, but I played it straight for almost 2 weeks because the co-op was hilarious. Just goes to show how much co-op can make up for bad game production.  I don't think think Draconis will be as fun as though.

Two Worlds was awful and just not fun at all. Divinity II however, is deeper, more satisfying, better acted, and just more polished (even though it's quite unpolished). Two Worlds was just THAT horrid.

@glitznglamstyle68: your words, though noble, I feel are largely negated by the fact that I just watched 26 minutes of a rough, glitchy, badly voiced, and overall painful-looking game. Maybe the second half of Divinity is awesome, but you can't watch that quick look and think that this game is anything but mediocre at best, at least on the console

" I cannot believe the guy who made the engine behind Oblivon and Fallout 3 complained about bad animations :P Anyway, the game looks half-decent, I like the depth and difficulty, although Risen  looks a lot better "

The game doesn't seem too terrible - doesn't seem great either.  That said, it was another great Quicklook - Although... Vinny not knowing Andy from Dave was disappointing :(

I had to get in on this, after reading these post.
 
I've played a great deal of rpgs (past 14 years or so).
Having played this game (on the PC), I can say without hesitation that Divinity 2 is indeed a great game. 
 
If you've ever liked heavy rpgs that didn't hold your hand (morrowind and the like) you'll be surprised with what Divinity 2 has to offer.

maybe if they one day get hold of a PC version and find it to be way better than the xbox one, they should make a new quicklook just so it would let the game redeem some of his PC player base.... as this quicklook might''ve scared away a lot of the potential PC players...

You might be onto something. I remember the trolls at least used to be entertaining.
