Dragon Age 2, Divinity 2 DKS, Or Two Worlds 2

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I like Bioware games, but DA2 seems to have a bad rep and not play to well on pc, TW2 seems to be good but have crap VO, and D2:DKS seems to be a good, if rather challenging all-rounder.

I will be playing the one I pick on PC, although if it's absolutely imperative i play it on 360 im fine with that as well.
Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Pc or 360?

My copy of Two Worlds 2 has more played time than my DA:2, haven't played Divinity 2. Was iffy at 1'st, but Two Worlds realllly grew on me, and can be crazy hard at points. Like any good loot hoarder game should do, I got really addicted in getting my gear just right.

dragon age 2 is not a bad game, its just not quite bioware quality. It was rushed, the dialogue is bad. The combat is not really balanced. Its a completely average mmo, which makes DA2 look like a bad game when compared to the rest of biowares lineup.

divinity wasnt my cup of tea, but the time i spent with it it seemed technically decent. 2t2 i havent gotten around to yet.

you can pick up drakensang for $20, and then the sequel for another $20. They are fantastic party based games on a german equivalent to DnD. You will be immediately home if you are familiar with bioware games. Drakensang is on steam, and the sequel is on impulse for $20 also.

Or start playing The witcher, so that you can have it done when The witcher 2 releases in a few weeks. The original was RPG of year in many many magazines, and truly deserved it. The witcher 2 is going to slap every other RPG maker in the face with a gauntlet, including bioware.

Divinity II is a blast. Except for the art design for male armor--personal taste, but I'd prefer my godly badass warrior to look well protected and mobile, not like a wedding cake with random chunks of shrapnel baked in instead of flour.

Luckily, there is a convenient (and free!) sex-change service in-game so you can look at some skin with your jagged spikes.

I've already enjoyed both Drakensang [in original german as well] and tried the witcher, although the combat wasn't exactly my thing.

How would you compare divinity 2 to other rpgs? is it similar to oblivion, DA, fable, or gothic 3?

I was thinking of getting it too. DA2 was a big letdown

I'd give a vote for Drankensang as well. The combat is a little slow sometimes when you and your opponent are sitting there dancing around facing eaching down...I think they tried to make it a little too realistic since if you were to actually fight a skilled fighter you don't just run in, but come on, this is a game. Still the best $20 I've spent on a game in a while though.

Dragon Age 2 probably would have been fine if they did not make it have any connection with the first. As in named it completey different with a different story. Actually the could have left the story alone save for changing all the words having anything to do with DA1. Sort of like if they had named Crysis 2 something like "Urban Assault in a Funny Suit" it would have probably been recieved better. So if you haven't played DA1; DA2 will be OK. I assume it is at least a $30 game now.

I haven't played the others...though I've been really on the fence to buy Two Worlds 2 and Divinity. Both look pretty good. If either one hits a Steam sale I will buy it in a heart beat
