I just finsihed the game and I gotta say that was the worst ending I have ever seen in any game, book, movie, news paper etc. It totally distroys replay value. I think the game designers sat in a room and figured how the absolute worst possible way to end the game. I enjoyed the rest of the game but is like puking after a good meal.

Hehe I liked the way you presented your argument. True however, it may ruin second playtroughs for many...

Yup. Just finished 5 minutes ago (credits ran, and I watched flabbergasted)

WTF!!!

All I gotta say. Truly, what purpose did this serve? I feel like everything I did was for naught.

Thank you Larian Studios

Don`t you guys get it, it adds to the intrigue, bad endings make way for new begginings!

Actually, bad endings more often than not serve as an indicator for the likelihood that a series has Jumped The Shark.

I agree, BUT ... give the gamers AT LEAST an ending that NOT destroy the replayability and don't break a hero-dream!

Be serious! Read the increasing numbers of gamers they are disappointed with the end !!
Don't forget about many many hours a gamer follow a story, leveling up his hero to defeat the Damned One's enemies .. and then ... crack ... the gamer's dream breaking into pieces!! frown cry

And with a little bit sense/feeling of "fantasy" (I'm sure people who makes a RPG like this HAVE fantasy enough!) they can make a follow-up, a new beginning after each kind of ending!!

I wish to be constructive and say (all of this is just some of my thoughts, not more than that wink )
* make a forumpoll or whatever that asks gamers for ideas for an ending of such a game like D II (or maybe an upcoming RPG ...).
* and give also the possibility to make more than 1 ending for/in 1 RPG!
* maybe a "competition" and a funny prize for the most rewarded "ending-idea".
* rated by forumpeople they give their meaning about all given ideas! So not only a selected group of people.

Divine Divinity`s ending wasn`t good either, the fact that the Divine One takes the Child of Chaos in his care is already menacing, but they still had ideas to make D2ED. So i doubt this has anything to do with jumping the shark.

I am pretty sure the Larian writers already had the entire story planned from the beginning until the ending before Divine Divinity was even released.

So a forum poll about the ending would be quite superfluous, imo.

A poll superfluous? smirk ... that is your meaning! I have mine wink

I'm a great fan of the Larian games, but the endings aren't so good, sorry I must say it again and again! smirk

And when I may choose between DD or D II:
for me DD have a ending I can live with, but also in DD the story comes less stronger after coming in The Wastelands!

But after coming in the Hall of Echoes it is nothing more that a repeat of already killed enemies first and then a unexcept(unexcepted is for me okay!) ending
that is also an ending that breaks the hearts of many heroes! frown

I agree.
Just finished the game myself.
Firstly, the hall of echoes was extremely easy, I was level 32 and I could kill most of the enemies in 1 or 2 hits.
The last fight ended.. too quickly lol. I did a couple of explosive shots and half of the enemies were already dead, just Zandalor took more hits than others.

Secondly, ending movie was a piece of shit, all that talk from divine was lame and ridiculously boring.
If you take out everything past The Hall of Echoes, than the game is playable, but this ending is miserably stupid.

I must agree, I have never ever seen such a lame and horrible ending as this. And trust me, I have played a lot of RPGs.

What you said about Patriarch makes me wonder, why is he in that cave, locked behind a well guarded door, in a room that`s filled with traps. Makes me wonder, what if Damian had him trapped and manipulated him?

As you said, the Patriarch doesn't care about what happens on earth. Even if you are the last Dragon Knight. It is not his place to do so... he's just an observer.

He could probably kill the entire world with one word.

I don't even recall telling The Patriarch why I would want to go to the Hall of Echoes, I just told him I wanted and I neededh is help. :P
Then again, the ending disappointed me. I wouldn't say it's really BAD, but it's far from what I expected. I started the game again with a new type of character, didn't kill replayability. What really 'hurt' me, is the fact that all those struggles in my first playthrough have been for nothing! Man, where is the damn reward for all the fithing? :O Give me a damn statue or somethin'!

Ending reminded me of the point where you found out what was really going on in BioShock - "Would you kindly..." mind control smile At least in BioShock you had a little bit more of the game to play and you it had multiple endings...

I can see why most don't like the ending - you do all that work only to find out it was for nothing... But it does setup the next game pretty well - REVENGE!

I just beat the game a few hours ago and was pleasantly surprised. It just sets things up perfectly for Divinity III, which I am already anxiously awaiting.
