I would have a few suggestions for the guy:

1) read the manual...
2) read the manual...
3) don´t play 640*480
4) read the maunal...
5) don´t write revieuws... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/memad.gif" alt="" />

I wonder how come he doesn't seem to know about the ctrl-key... it's mentioned in the manual (in the official version at least <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> ), the readme, and even in the game!
Besides the fact he didn't figure out how to fight, he also didn't seem to like the graphics. Et voila, 2 sentences and I've said about everything the review mentions <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

(And what an ugly site it is! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shhh.gif" alt="" /> )

Luckily he's not biased... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

ok, I've had read that review and the only thing I think hes right is that you start with just a little view. but I think this person that gave that review is just a small child, just a fanatic not a game proffesional (not to ofend him or anything. But He said it himself, he did not finish the game, not even play a lot to actually say that about the game, so his review is just bla, bla, bla to me. I love Divini Divinity, Great graphics, great sound, great story, overall GREAT GAME, wwwoohhhhoooooooo!!!!!!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/alien.gif" alt="" />

The problem with that guy is that he expected the game to be bad, so he was simply not willing to spend the bit of effort required to learn how the game is played. If he was, he would have found out that you can see doors (and other objects) with the ALT key, and that you can autotarget with the CTRL key.
Luckily, few people will ever find his review and read it. Most people wanting to try a new RPG, go through major gaming sites and read reviews from there and download demos and stuff. That's how I came across DD anyway, so I wouldn't pay too much attention to that guy.

he probably played another game, which he stole somewhere, and with his unability to read, he apparantly thought it was divdiv <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />

Guys, this is just a reader review. Of course there's going to be at least one cheese-head out there who thinks everything is just a crappy Diablo clone. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/suspicion.gif" alt="" />
We can all rest well knowing that every major publication worth its salt has done nothing but praise Divinity. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Neah, let him gripe. We know it's quality work, and so do many other people out there. Also, he claims that there are no other reviews of the game! Hmmm...

yes indeed @Flixerflax <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
but we, the crazy fans (or how was that exact word again?)
will even follow those "redemers" and bring them back to the light inside our warm divine forum <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

the most logical explanation must be that that site is corrupt or infected. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
thoose poor gamers. the DID write a very good review, but the daiktana-virus transformed it to negative text <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

if we used this treath to search the internet to find bad revieuws of <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" /> ?
make a blacklist of the persons and then "convinse" them <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" /> is a good game? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
ahh sound like that good old inquistion... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/badsmile2.gif" alt="" />

«I have a good system with a good graphics card and play NWN and Diablo II just fine....so it's the game not my computer that is the problem.»


There is sure a problem, but not in <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" />. The problem is in his head... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evilgrin1.gif" alt="" />

And if he finds the graphics and sound so bad, then he should check again his «good» system...

I think that he didn´t buy the original cd... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" />

You know what? I think those people giving bad reviews fo Divine Divinity are just people working for other game companies in a LAME attempt to give divinity a bad reputation, or they are just people who need attention and don't know any other way to get it, jejeje, NO OFENSE TO ANYONE, just my humble opinion

Nah, I can imagine the game's very frustrating if you don't know about the ctrl-key - it probably ruins the whole experience...

I guess you're right Kejero, not even developers or other game compnanies programers could say that divine divinity is a bad game, no one could, jeje.
