    If you hover over a surface, it'll tell you what you're looking at.

    It was also extremely flawed at release, until the expansion and some major patching occurred.

    You should give DD a chance, it's a decent Diablo clone with a story that ties in nicely to DOS2.

    There's nothing shameful about admitting that, even with all their flaws, Larian is the saviour of RPG :smug:

    Well, the entire Divinity series, apart from DC, is generally some variant of Diablo meets Ultima meets fantasy pastiche.

    It may be TB party based Diablo with tactics or twitchy TPP Diablo with flying and jumping puzzles.

    Overall I am happy with DOS2 and even pleasantly surprised by some aspects, even if some others are just head-scratchingly wrong.

    DD has the best atmosphere and music of the games, and its art style has held up very well.

    How long have you played it for. The "introduction" alone is like 15-20h. Its a massive game. And it gets better later on.

    Finally got the time for this. So if I'm looking for a solid challenge that encourages smart play, classic or tactician?

    I played the original on Hard and enjoyed the challenge bump from "normal" (never played the remastered version)

    UnderRail is better than DOS 2.
    Yes, that game was that good!

    You would probably be right there, as I get redirected to the Steam homepage when I click on that link.

    Tactician, despite the 'bloat' it's the better option.

    Classic is too easy IMO.

    Also, can someone explain what's gained/lost by choosing a Custom Char vs what I understand to be Companions? Won't I still be able to experience every companion's story/quest if I decide not to play as one of them?

    Does each "origin" have unique content locked away? how much vs going custom? thanks

    All of the unique chars can be recruited as companions (or 3 of them, for that matter).

    In some cases, you learn more about the unique chars if they are a companion. You do get some options in dialogs and quests if you play as one of the unique chars. To answer your question though, nothing HUGE is lost, and you can still experience like 95% if not 100% of their backgrounds by taking them as companions.

    To avoid retardation take lone wolf for your custom character, pick up Beast as a companion and make sure you get lone wolf talent for him as soon as possible, screw everyone else.

    Your custom character should preferably be human 2h warrior and Beast as a marksman will be a fine supplement for him. Max warfare ASAP, take some necromancy for healing , put a few points in metamorph for utility , for Beast you should also raise huntsman skill to be able to use archery skills and also get additional damage from highground. Everything else is preference.

    Perform a victory dance as you are now a nigh immortal amazing duo that doesn't take anyone's shit and is capable of annihilating the universe with a single fart.

    And remember

    Have they fixed this game yet? It's been two months.
