PC.IGN has posted up their review of Divine Divinity. The review is very, very postive and gives the game an 8.5/10, making the comparason to Ultima VII, as you can see:


Do you remember that 1992 hit, Ultima VII? It hasn't been seen much since then, because the developers, Origin Systems, used a proprietary form of memory management that conflicts with Windows. But what blew most of us away at the time weren't the great graphics or multiple person parties, but the fact that for the first time we could actually walk through a world that moved and regulated itself despite our presence: a world containing its own weather, day and night cycles, merchants who closed up shop at the end of business and went home, and thousands of items that existed as separate objects?including rakes, baskets, dinner plates and desk stamps. Nothing 2D has approached it since (except for Ultima VII, part 2), but Divine Divinity comes closest.​

It's good to see a CRPG that tries to provide interactive depth with objects once again.
