A little RPG

DukePaul | Oct. 16, 2012 | See all DukePaul's reviews »

This game is like the old RPGs, with fast gameplay to kill enemies, freedom on the big map and a lot of quests that makes this a tittle with a lot of hours of gameplay,The graphics of course are old but that is not a problem, they look fine and the sound is very good with a lot of voices ingame.

In the game you can find summoning dolls that will be added of your party and each of this dolls have custom stats and abilities, this add strategy to the battles.

If you liked the previous game Divine Divinity you will like this one too.

Great and classic RPG

Sharptap | Sept. 24, 2012 | See all Sharptap's reviews »

Beyond Divinity is a must-buy for the RPG lovers.It´s similiar to diablo but there is so many things to explore (secrets and stuff) that makes this game huge. The visual can be bad for the people who just like modern games but for me the graphics are beautiful. The combat is good but some times can be boring , but that is normal , even diablo is like that. The music is excellent one of the best things on the game. Like i said this game is a must-buy.

Smaller Scope / More Secrets & Puzzles

carnival73 | Aug. 15, 2012 | See all carnival73's reviews »

Very similar to games like Diablo and Sacred but exploration aspects are a lot more sophisticated.

Where the former two (especially Sacred) offer up massive maps and hundreds of hours of game time, most of that is spent mindlessly clicking things to death over and over again.

It's apparent, from the start, that Beyond has a much shorter running time but it's filled with more quality game play offering ambiguous and out-of-the-way puzzles and secrets.

As well the smaller scope made it easier for writers to comprise more of a story and dialogue interaction between characters.

I'd give this ten points short of perfect for the bland, left mouse button, combat system, but not the fifty points short of perfect that I'd give the same type of game nowadays where developers should realize by now that mouse clicks should be conserved for business software only.

Great classic RPG

AirborneOps | Aug. 13, 2012 | See all AirborneOps's reviews »

This is a great classic rpg. I have not played the first game, however this little gem is amazing. It has all the elements you expect from an rpg that still holds up to games that come out today. The graphics are dated but still managed to keep me playing. The beginning of the game is pretty linear but it gradually opens up and it just gets better and better.

Classic cRPG

kof91 | Aug. 7, 2012 | See all kof91's reviews »

If you are looking to play 100+ hours this is the rpg to play. A classic graphics may look dated but for rpg games it doesn't matter so much. Multiple ways to configure your party characters and randomized treasure but not too sure if you want to put multiple 100+ hours into the game for 2nd play. Definitely enjoyable to play again the good old isometric rpg if you have enjoyed it many years ago..

Strangely addicting..

Vidiz | July 27, 2012 | See all Vidiz's reviews »

A classic dungeon crawler, and while it may not be much to look at by today's standards the visuals are still nice to look at and the overall art style of the game is well done. The sounds and music in the game are one of the highlights too. The combat is okay but can be a little tedious at times during long dungeons. The story is where the game shines though with some surprisingly good humour along the way. Beyond Divinity could fall into the love it or hate it category for today's gamers but anyone looking for a classic RPG this game would be a solid choice.

cRPG at its best

IganX | July 23, 2012 | See all IganX's reviews »

Being a sequel to the classic Divine Divinity, this game had much to live up to, and still it managed to keep up with its original, without being a masterpiece. If you like oldschool cRPG with character depth and a nice combat system, this game is for you.

Classic

lok0812 | July 20, 2012 | See all lok0812's reviews »

This is an excellent old-school RPG, and its entertainment value against today's offerings still holds strong. Beyond Divinity has nice graphics for its style and the controls are similar to other isometric games of its type, with the exception of your two-player control system, which is fairly easy to adapt to. Game has an excellent mix of story, combat and exploration. If you like the isometric style of RPG and haven't played this one yet, you definitely should!

Good old classic games

killlerkirsche | July 19, 2012 | See all killlerkirsche's reviews »

Well, maybe Beyond Divinity doesn´t look so good like newer games, it still has his own style. You can compare it to the Diablo series,but with more freedom in it. You can move wherever you want. The game itself is divided into 4 acts and you take control of two characters. But this isn´t all. In each act, you can acquire a summoner spell, which helps you a lot in combat.

The story takes place 20 years after Divine Divinity and you are the servant of the divine one, the paladin. During a battle, you will be dragged into another universe and soul forged to a demon knight. It is a pretty common story, but with its own charme.

A good cRPG h&s experience

Finka_Karfein | June 9, 2012 | See all Finka_Karfein's reviews »

Larian Studios definitely knows how to make a decent cRPG though this one, similarly do Divine Divinity, falls under the category of hack&slash, especially due to randomly generated dungeons which are boring as learning to history exam. Explore them only when your level is too low. Graphics are half-3D, everything is in two dimensions but characters are in 3D. This mix do not go very well with this one but it still looks nice. Music is awesome as in the DD and gameplay keeps the game running. Beyond Divinity is harder because of the limitations of the potions or food you can eat at a time which a good thing because it gives you challenge. The plot is nice and full of humour resulting from the two contradictory protagonists. All in all, I recommend playing this title but only after Divine Divinity and before newer Divinities. It just feels right this way and you will not be disappointed.

Classic...

newn | Aug. 6, 2011 | See all newn's reviews »

It's a strange sequel to Divine Divinity. A lot it is the same as in there, also it reminds me Neverwinter Nights too. The story is great, same as a lot of other old games. You can't compare this to many current games. It is also a hard game, I am a hardcore gamer and I used to die A LOT compared to most other games. Another great thing is that there's a lot of humor in this game. Both in dialogues, quests, environment... Everything. I can really say no bad thing about this game. Graphics is great as an old game's, sounds are very cool too. Mechanics are okay compared to every other game. I truly cannot think of a bad thing!

So I think that it's really worth buying, it will occupy you for few 10s of hours.

great nostalgic

ravenholt | June 28, 2011 | See all ravenholt's reviews »

This game has it own era of glory. not so much i can remember, but it's quite long time ago. Of course, there are things that time can never change : story and gameplay. One of the best game has ever released. You should try this classic, yet great hack and slash game.

Hack & slash your enemy here

satyakun | May 25, 2011 | See all satyakun's reviews »

This game is an old one, but it's still a great game when released. With a good looking 2D graphics, this game probably run smoothly in your computer now. The gameplay itself is looks like another game on its genre. Your enemy is creature from underworld -skeleton, necromancer, and more- will make it an enjoyable for you who like Hack and slash game.

Living in the shadow of its older sibling.

GAMERamble | April 11, 2011 | See all GAMERamble's reviews »

I was a huge fan of Divine Divinity and really looked forward to Beyond Divinity. While there is a lot about the game that is still familiar it does not quite live up to expectations. The storyline is interesting with your character bound to a Death Knight. Of course neither the Death Knight or your character is impressed with this turn of events and together you set out to solve this problem.

If you play games for the awesome graphics then the visuals in Beyond Divinity won't impress you. If you like a long, challenging quest filled with plenty of humor then you won't be disappointing. If you have never played Beyond Divinity then I would suggest you do so first (although it is not necessary as the stories are not linked) but make Beyond Divinity your second choice.

Classic.

keeveek | April 5, 2011 | See all keeveek's reviews »

Rembember Divine Divinity? It's the sequel. To be honest, it's not as good as it's older brother, but still fun to play. Your protagonist is bound by soul to your darker self. Now, youll be togheter till death unites you (in soil). Game mechanics are rather simple, but very enjoyable. The best part of the game is it's humour. Many funny quests and dialogues will put a smile on your face for entire gameplay. If you don't have a sense of humor - don't touch this gem! Graphics are simple and 2D but still nice - this game is aging with dignity.
