Icrontic.com reviewed Divinity II and while they don't gives scores, their impression was very favourable:

"Divinity II is a fun and unique take on the first person tactical RPG genre. Nice graphics, an interesting story, and a fluid development system make this a great example of the genre, even without the dragon gimmick...Divinity 2 is a must have game."

***

Gamingtruth also had a look and decided to award the game 90%.
Here's what they had to say:

"Divinity II: Ego Draconis is a well done RPG, that brings a lot to the table. The title puts a new spin on the genre and will keep the user highly entertained with over 60 hours of gameplay. While the Dragon themed games are nothing new, the folks at Larian Studios are taking it to a higher level of expectations."

Divinity II gets 90% at Gameobserver.com ! smile

GameObserver just posted their review for Divinity II and recommend it strongly, reflected in the 90% score they awarded. Here are two quotes:

"Simply put, if you love RPGs the way I do, you’ll love Divinity II"

and

"What on the surface looks like a run-of-the-mill European Action RPG (is there even such a thing??) is made unique through the inclusion of the summoned creature system, the Battle Tower, and the truly phenomenal and well thought out Dragon mode. Putting all of this together in one RPG without having the other aspects of the game suffer is truly a monumental feat and one that shouldn’t go unnoticed. If they find the right audience, Larian could make quite a name for itself creating sequels using the same formula."

Divinity II review at 1up.com.

"Divinity II genuinely surprised me; loathe as I am to admit it, I may have entertained the slightest of preconceived notions about the quality of the game, but Divinity II totally shattered them. It may not be ready to take on BioWare's finest, but if you're feeling an RPG (or dragon-riding) jones, you could come up with helluva worse ways to spend your coin.”

Divinity II review at Zeitgeist.com

They don’t score games but gave it a favorable review.

“I had an absolute blast playing through Divinity 2: Ego Draconis, that is, once I got a hang of the controls and upgraded my weapons and armor past the basic gear. This game held my attention the entire time I played and I just couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next, and better yet, I couldn’t wait to see my character was going to improve and see both what skills he was going to learn, and how cool he was going to look with new armor. While there are significant differences between the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game, both are very fun to play. The graphics are beautiful and the game-play is addictive, but there are still plenty of bugs that need to be worked out. Nonetheless, this was a great way to open the New Year!”

It's funny the biggest websites, take Gamespot for an example, give low scores to games like this. And with 'games like this' I mean that Divinity 2 isn't just a normal game. It has many flaws, the first hours of the game might set you completely on the wrong foot and make you think the game sucks. But the complete picture, maybe even after 20 hours of playing the game, is fantastic. I bet Gametrailers and IGN will follow Gamespot and award the game a similar score.

It only makes it more clear what moves the big review sites: Financial Interests.
