At the end of it all, Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition is still the RPG dream it has been since its release. Better still, there are a few compelling reasons to own this title on PS4 this go around, and players don’t need to sacrifice how it looks or performs in order to do so. If you haven’t played Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition and you’re into RPGs, tabletop gaming, or sprawling narratives full of choice, now is the time to jump in.

It goes without saying that I think Original Sin II is a splendid game overall, and the PlayStation 4 port is one worth checking out for those interested in the series. Not only is the story welcoming to both returning fans and newcomers to the franchise, but the various difficulty settings, specifically Story Mode, give an accessible option for beginners to experience this style of gameplay with minimal frustration.
John Cal McCormickAug 29, 2018
With stellar writing, challenging combat, a compelling central quest, and dozens of worthwhile side activities, Divinity: Original Sin II is one of the finest role-playing games available on PlayStation 4. There’s the occasional small issue and some scant technical hiccups – particularly when playing online – but these are minor quibbles.
Jordan HawesSep 12, 2018
Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition is not only the definitive edition of itself, but for the RPG genre in general. It is fantastic through and through from the story, characters, combat, visuals, and sound design. Despite a learning curve and some difficulty spikes there isn’t much to harp on especially if you play on PC. Regardless of the platform however, Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a must play for any RPG fan.
Brett ToddSep 05, 2018
From lonely farmhouses through pitched battles with gods in far-flung dimensions, Divinity: Original Sin II is one of the most captivating role-playing games ever made in both its original and Definitive incarnations, with the latter proving that even the most complicated role-players can be ported successfully to gamepad-limited consoles.
Alexander ThomasSep 16, 2018
The core experience is the same and for those who love dungeon crawling or are fans of DnD, this is the closest you can possibly get to an authentic DnD tabletop experience in digital form. The actions and consequences are entirely up to the player, creating endless replayability options with your custom or in-game heroes. I was happy to see it come to console but the end result leaves me missing the mouse and keyboard more than my desire to sit comfortably on the couch.
Robert GammonAug 29, 2018
The control scheme may take some getting used to, and you may find yourself getting bogged down in some of the grittier details of the game. But once you get used to it, you may just have the role-playing experience of your life. Divinity: Original Sin 2 was already one of the best, and with the release of the Definitive Edition, it’s even better than ever.
Emil GunnarssonAug 31, 2018
The sequel to Divinity: Original Sin delivers a great tactical top-down RPG experience that plays phenomenally on a console.
Jacob BukacekSep 08, 2018
Divinity: Original Sin II – Definitive Edition is absolutely the best possible version of an already exceptional role-playing game. It’s the same incredibly deep choice-driven experience it was when it launched a year ago, just with a slew of improvements thrown in for good measure. The console version is just as much fun to play as its PC counterpart, and its controls get the job done in a way that’s limited only by controller itself.
Dan WebbSep 07, 2018
Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition is a fine installment in the Divinity series and despite a few odd design decisions and the balance being completely out of whack, it’s still a truly memorable and enjoyable experience.
Ty ArthurAug 29, 2018
It's still fun, no doubt, and you are getting an improved version of an already great game. The gameplay here is still great. Sadly, after playing the PS4 version, though, I really just want to re-install the game through Steam and play with the Definitive Edition changes over there.
Drew HurleySep 01, 2018
Divinity: Original Sin II - Definitive Edition is absolutely phenomenal; almost perfect in every way and easily one of the greatest RPGs of not just recent years but all time - easily able to stand alongside the greats not just in this style, like Knights of the Old Republic, but alongside any RPG. It puts Bioware's recent efforts to shame. It's fantastic that it's coming to console and that more people will have an opportunity to play this magnificent masterpiece.
Mick FraserAug 29, 2018
Put simply, Larian studios have created an absolute belter, and despite a handful of caveats the crossover from PC to console is a resounding success. Thanks to the likes of Pillars of Eternity, Sword Coast Legends and, of course, this game’s predecessor, there’s no shortage of party-based tactical RPGs available on console these days, but I’d confidently champion Divinity Original Sin 2 as the best of damn good bunch.
Steve CAug 29, 2018
Divinity Original Sin II: Definitive Edition is almost certainly the finest RPG experience on the current generation of consoles. The sheer range and depth of the combat coupled with the interesting and well written dialogue and story produces a vast and rewarding experience that continually surprises and delights. Ironically, the only real negative aspect is that the sheer size of the game is overwhelming and many will not see it through to the end.
GameCentralAug 29, 2018
Clearly, this is not the sort of experience you can dip in and out of for five minutes at a time, but as long as you understand that going in we really do think it can be enjoyed by everyone – especially thanks to the co-op options. Divinity: Original Sin II was amazing when it was first released last year but these new changes (which are available on PC too) reconfirm it as one of the most impressive video games we’ve ever played.
Carl NielsenSep 03, 2018
Divinity: Original Sin II is one of the best RPGs we've played in a long time. It's a perfect blend of pen and paper and video game, meaning the patient player will be rewarded with deep systems and a lot of interesting storylines. There's a rare feeling of a truly open gameplay while still feeling like everything is in its right place. Everything from quests, stories, and characters to fights, pacing, abilities, and equipment is made up of high RPG quality.
Garri BagdasarovSep 17, 2018
Divinity Original Sin II is a great showcase in storytelling and fun experimental combat. A lot of it’s features aren’t for everyone including myself but I can’t deny the appeal they hold. For those looking for a deep time consuming game that they can play for months and months on end, Look no further then Divinity Original Sin II.
Chris BrownAug 30, 2018
Last year I named Divinity Original Sin II the best game I had played this millennium. This year I need to amend that statement. Divinity Original Sin II – The Definitive Edition the best RPG I have ever played. Its transition to console might not be a smooth as I would have liked, but there are a slew of improvements and welcome additions that make it more than it was, and the exceptional quality of the game is undeniable.
Ramón VarelaAug 31, 2018
Si bien la experiencia con pad, los tiempos de carga -que se hacen un poco pesados cuando aparecen en repetidas ocasiones- y ciertas limitaciones gráficas impiden que esté a la altura de la versión PC, esta versión definitiva en cualquier plataforma es todavía mejor que la recibida hace un año en ordenador. Y eso es decir mucho: lo calificamos como uno de los mejores juegos de rol clásico de todos los tiempos.
Alberto PastorAug 29, 2018
Divinity: Original Sin II es la definición perfecta de la libertad en el género del rol. Lo logrado aquí por Larian Studios excede toda expectativa. Sabe a clásico, pero busca innovar. Recoge elementos del original, pero los mejora y amplía. Pocos juegos de rol pueden llevar sus siglas con más orgullo que el juego que tenemos aquí. Un imprescindible en PC y consolas.
David MartínezSep 03, 2018
Un sensacional RPG clásico, que nos ha conquistado por sus combates por turnos con grandes dosis de estrategia y sobre todo por la enorme libertad de acción y sus apasionantes historias, tanto la principal como las tareas secundarias. Además, el multijugador local y online son un gran añadido.
Gustavo MaesoAug 29, 2018
El nuevo Modo Arcade añade, además, un fantástico modo online JcJ que puede hasta convertirse en una disciplina competitiva. Si pasas por alto sus pequeñas pegas y eres capaz de dominarlo, puedes tener ante ti el mejor juego de rol para consolas de los últimos años y pasar, literalmente, cientos de horas de diversión.
Jörg LuiblAug 29, 2018
Auch wenn Wachen nicht immer auf Tote reagieren und es immer noch zu viel Beute, Rezepte & Co gibt, werdet ihr gerade mit dieser reiferen Defintive Edition über 80 Stunden einen Tick besser unterhalten als im September 2017 auf dem Rechner, weshalb wir Platin zücken. Hut ab, so müssen Rollenspiele auf die Konsole übertragen werden!
Camille AllardSep 18, 2018
Toujours au rang des nouveautés, on saluera l'arrivée du Story Mode qui permet de profiter du jeu sans avoir la pression, pratique pour les néophytes des RPG old school. Et pour ceux ayant encore plus de difficultés, un tutoriel tout beau tout neuf a fait son apparition. Véritablement, la version console est loin d'être une déception et elle devrait satisfaire autant que la version PC. Bref, une nouvelle occasion d'avoir entre les mains l'un des meilleurs RPG de ces dernières années.
MrderivSep 06, 2018
Déjà considéré comme l’un des tous meilleurs RPG de ces dernières années dans sa version de base, Divinity Original Sin 2 peaufine de bien jolie manière sa proposition avec une Defintive Edition bourrée à craquer d’améliorations. Son portage console reste dans la même lignée que celui de son aîné : intuitif, très maniable au pad, un vrai plaisir à parcourir en solo ou, mieux, en coopération locale ou en ligne.
Nicolò BicegoAug 29, 2018
Divinity: Original Sin II Definitive Edition costituisce un acquisto imperdibile per tutti gli amanti degli RPG, ereditando quanto di meglio proposto dalla lunga tradizione degli RPG occidentali. Forte di una libertà mai vista prima e di un gameplay tanto complesso quanto profondo, il titolo di Larian Studios supera la vetta raggiunta dal suo predecessore, e con questa Definitive Edition anche i giocatori console avranno finalmente modo di avventurarsi nelle terre di Rivellon.
Andrea GiongianiAug 29, 2018
Un classico annunciato. Prende tutto ciò che aveva reso il suo predecessore grande e lo migliora in ogni singolo aspetto. Il lato negativo principale è legato unicamente al sistema di controllo. Altri difetti? La mancata traduzione in italiano potrebbe creare un'ulteriore barriera per alcuni giocatori. Per il resto si tratta di uno dei migliori giochi di ruolo mai usciti.
Simone PettineAug 29, 2018
Divinity Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition è un titolo che ogni amante del fantasy, degli RPG, o degli hardcore isometrici "vecchio stile" della gloriosa era PC non possono neanche lontanamente pensare di farsi sfuggire. I ragazzi di Larian Studios hanno creato quello che a conti fatti è un capolavoro, un titolo mastodontico dalla longevità elevatissima, dai contenuti di cui non si riesce a scorgere la fine, e dalla cura quasi maniacale.
Reinoud SchaatsbergenSep 05, 2018
De omslachtigheid van het besturingssysteem moet je soms even door de vingers zien, net als een lichte framerate drop in overvolle gebieden, maar het resultaat is een game die zich onder de groten der RPGs mag scharen.
Ralph BeentjesSep 07, 2018
De Definitive Edition bouwt daar lekker op voort en maakt de game beschikbaar voor een nog breder publiek met een tutorial, een toegankelijke moeilijkheidsgraad, nieuw ingesproken stemmen, een gestroomlijnder verhaal, verbeterde physics én ude mogelijkheid om de game op de consoles te spelen.
