The game is good.
I will agree with this for sure. I've put about 7 hours into it and have only started to explore Fort Joy on the Island. There are quite a few things that Larian has improved upon since the first game and after having played 7 hours, I must say that having a person voice the narration part of conversations makes the writing stand out more. Not having to read the "expressive ways that people convey their thoughts" inbetween their actual dialogue is a huge welcome change and I will say putting voices to everything makes the story/quests more engaging for me.
I like the improvements to the combat so far, with the memory system and the AP system having a small cap. It makes the combat feel smoother and less timely, even in larger scale fights with lots of enemies.
Learning from the first game though, I have been picking up all the paintings waiting to sell them to the write person so that I can be a millionaire, however I'm thinking I'll have to hold onto them until I get off this island lol. One last thing, but definitely not thee last thing I've been enjoying about the game is the little touches that the developers have added. I know it was a kickstarter thing and I didn't give to this amount, but making portraits/paintings of the people who gave a certain level during the kickstarter is just crazy awesome in my opinion. Seeing the different paintings/portraits as I come across them is just neat.
I will mention that, like Divinity Original Sin, I'm finding myself take extra time with everything, not wanting to miss any component of a quest, or even an entire quest itself because of the detail that's in the game and I'm assuming that's made my progression slow, but I've been really enjoying it overall. I will definitely get my monies' worth, a few times over with this game, since kickstarting it, but honestly, if it holds up to what I've played so far, I'd easily keep kickstarting Larian's games, especially those dealing with the Original Sin world. Sorry for any words/quotes improperly used. Have been trying to spend what time I can with the game, since it's been so enjoyable and that leads me to play late into the night after getting up too early lol As always, real life, go away:)
Oh, I will quickly add that I chose Ifan as my main, and have since picked up Fane, Lohse, and The Red Prince, because the origin stories have been really interesting so far.
