Ok, maybe the game is a little bit hard at the begining because you can't hardly see without buing the elven sight ability, but come on, the game isn't that hard, not even in hard mode. DO NOT GET ME WRONG, I LOVE THE GAME WITH ALL MY HEART, and I'm not an exeptional player. But come on, once you got the aura of command and the scorpions that's it folks, NO ONE CAN STAND A CHANCE, not even the dragon riders, so I really hope that in divine divinity 2 and riftrunner are more difficult than divine divinity. People I do not want to start a war about this, if those two games are more easy than this one I,M STILL GONNA BUY THEM AND PLAY THEM FOR ETERNITY. jejejeje, I just love divine divinity. So please any coments about this are all welcome <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/alien.gif" alt="" />

Many of us fell the same about the difficulty level. the only hard fight is josephina in the whole game, but you can of course forget about scorpions and aura of command and play without these skills, than you will feel that the game can be at least a bit more difficult...

I completely agree, but as bernhard said, you do have a choice, if you don't like it easy, just don't use scorpions or whatever makes it too easy for you. Also keep in mind that scorpions under aura of command only give half the exp you would otherwise get from killing stuff yourself, this is one of the reasons I don't use them.

If you deny yourself Scorpions and Frost weapons, the game becomes a lot more interesting. I used a Frost weapon for some time because I had to restart (computer reformat) and was bored of the beginning already. But after some time I gave it up for another magical sword without Frost just to make the game a little more tacticful again.

Just say no. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I read comments on here about how the scorpion exploit broke the game balance, so I avoided them. I'm glad I did!

Well I don´t know why a game in order to be interesting must be difficult... You could call me a bad gamer. And perhaps I am. But... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" /> being a bit easy gave me the oportunity to enjoy some other things in the game except battles. For eg. the great scenery, the plot, the char., the objects and the music. When a game is too difficult I have the fear in every step I make about enemies and battles and I am not able to notice anything else. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />

I totally agree, Lucretia [Linked Image] What I'll say now can be seen as politically incorrect, but I think that girls don't need difficult battles to find the game attractive, while guys need some really challenging fights <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Well I need some challenging fights too... but not all the time. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

I enjoyed very much my fights with the orcs <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/badsmile2.gif" alt="" /> It was a pleasure <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/badsmile2.gif" alt="" />

Thank you all wonderfull people for your comments. All of you are absolutly right about the scorpions, but I forgot to mention in my post that besacuse the scorpions and the frost weapons made the game so easily I do not use them( just the first two times I beat the game, jejeje). Anyway I just wanted to let all the people who write about that josefina and many things in the game are imposible to beat, that there is always a way to give it a good beating. again thanks to all of you who took the trouble of replying to my post...........

LONG LIVE THIS FORUM AND IT'S PEOPLE......YEAHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Erm.. the aura of command and scorpions thing is is an exploit/bug...so if you play like this it will be easy. Maybe try playing without cheating..stay away from hoarding potions or flash attack and you'll find it hard enough.

Generally it is much easier than the initial release, i'm sure they've made it easier in patching. But it is also a hard game to play in parts. But using exploits to argue that a game is easy is inexcusable..

erm rugster I think you did not read my last post well, I beat the game 12 times already, two times with each character and I did not use those exploits only the first two times I beat the game, after that didn't use them because those make the game too easy, but, Divine Divinity is a great game, easy, hard, moderate, it doen't matter to me the dificulty, what matters to me is that is a great game. Thanks very much for your comment, you are right with those exploits the game is way too easy, and if one do not use those the game does become more dificult...........again thanks a lot for your comments.

Although you could consider improper balancing to be a form of a bug - so taking advantage of it is really an exploit.
