You are the Dragon Commander. Your mission is to reunite a broken empire and become the new emperor. Success depends entirely on your ability to efficiently rule your empire, build invincible armies and lead them to victory. Your secret weapons: your tactical insights, your leadership skills and your ability to turn yourself into a dragon.
More than 'just another' strategy game, Dragon Commander seamlessly blends turn-based and real-time strategy, action gameplay and roleplaying into a grand adventure. Plot the political course of your empire, move your armies into key locations in the world, command troops on the battlefield, and decimate the opposition as a ferocious dragon.
“Personally, we’re glad that Larian took the time to make sure they got it right. With its Total War-esque grand strategy interface, to its tactical mode that proves to be extremely engaging, this is going to be a really interesting spin-off title to a much-loved franchise.” - Strategy Informer
“Divinity: Dragon Commander contains two distinct components and in just over an hour of playing, I found much to like in both.” - Rock, Paper, Shotgun
"I greatly enjoyed my time with Divinity: Dragon Commander, and it promises to be an amazing and fresh take on the genre. It will also feature some very innovative cooperative play elements that can lead to some very epic battles." - Co-Optimus

The game is by default installed in "c:Program Filesgog.com*" and there is the problem. You see, this game doesn't like dots in its installation path, so you simply just need to install it in "gogcom" (without dot) or anywhere else you want. Enjoy the game.

By now everyone knows what the game is, a genre mix, and yes this causes it to lose some depth in each category, but does it work? Meh, it's hard to recommend. I enjoyed it and don't even regret the preorder but your mileage may vary.
Stripped down to gameplay alone, the game is a loss. Each level of strategy is shallow. The tabletop would be boring on its own and the RTS is a messread more of rock, paper, scissors with both games ending with who can mass enough troops together. Dragon combat, one of the game's big draws, is poorly integrated. Switch to a dragon and all you can really do command-wise is send everyone at one target, meanwhile your dragonform is a bit fragile and not as devastating as you would hope without the final abilities.
The charm though, is undeniable. The characters aboard your command ship are colorful, well voiced and animated. The political part of the game is entertaining but serves no real purpose inside of the game.
Not even halfway through the campaign, I started using auto-resolve every battle to avoid the tedious RTS battles so that I could get to the next dialogue. I do enjoy the combat and am about to start it up right now, but it is repetitive. Bottom line: years from now I am going to rant about how fun this game was because you could fly around battles as a dragon and it was all steampunk and all that because there will probably not be a sequel - so buy this game because it is one of a kind.

That was the first thought i had when i saw this game. But the Trailer convinced me. A Political System? Difficult Decisions? Fights with Airships? A must-have!
Now after a few hours of playing, I am double minded. I have Fun playing the Game. I still think the Dragon might be a bit overpowered, but I play on "middle", so there is still more learn.
But the Game is not as deep asread more I thought it would be. And I have a bad Problem with Lag. All 5 Seconds there is one. Perhaps this game is not optimized on a Laptop, but it´s annoying as f*ck when ArmA 3 runs perfectly, but this game lags. I hope there will be patches.
I would give 3,5 Stars, but i will suggest they will patch, so i round up to 4.
Fazit: It is a really nice game, but don´t expect too much. Then you can have a lot of fun.
