I finished Divine Divinity. Or really, I almost finished it, at just a few minutes short of 50 hours of gameplay. I guess a got my few dollars worth of game there!
I had reached the very end, where you have to go through 5 minor castles and beat a mini boss in each, and the take on the final castle and beat the main boss. Unfortunately, I beat 2 mini bosses, but couldn't beat the third one. These mini bosses have special skills that renders them invicible, and unless you actually knew about this in advance (I didn't) and had skilled for it (I hadn't), its practically impossible to beat. And well, it was for me. I don't mind trying over and over again on a hard boss (Which I did!), but I don't like the game cheating just to make the game harder. And since it would take me multiple hours of doing literally nothing to remedy it, I was just not going to do that: Spend 10 minutes of real life travel time to go back to a specific shop, then wait until he restocks items every 5 minutes in real time, and then buy *one* random spell upgrade on each restock - of which I would need around 20 of, out of around 100 different spells. Nope, with even more nope.
But I don't feel bad about dropping the last hour of the game. All mini bosses and their castles were practically the same, and the main boss was just more of it, so I don't feel bad about loosing out on that content. And I just watched the end movie on youtube, so I am fine.
The first three quarters of the game was a 5/5 rating where I had a complete blast of a game - Soooo entertaining! But that last part felt extremely rushed and was SO empty in comparison, that I really feel it could have been almost completely removed. So I end up with a 4/5 star rating for Divine Divinity. Still highly recommended if you like old school RPGs and action RPGs. With a slight visual upgrade, I think this game would have rivaled the classic that is Diablo, since there's SO MUCH more to do, and a MUCH better plot.
And now... Borderlands the Pre-Sequel, or Baldurs Gate II. I'd likely take the first one first, simply not to go from RPG to RPG, even though I really feel like Baldurs Gating right now... I mean Baldurs Gate I is the best RPG ever created, so the sequel is also up there.
"They're everywhere!" -And now, time for some Legend of Zelda.
