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.

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

The game is something to be admired, but no necessarily played. It's RTS mechanics are lacking, the only saving grace is sections where you get to control a dragon with a jet pack, which is as awesome as it sounds. However, you're only allowed to bring out the dragon when certain conditions are met on the battlefield and your main ability has a cool down, slowing down the pace ofread more what would otherwise be a superb piece of game play.
The map based RTS (What you need to do to reach the battles) is extremely basic and a little hard to fathom at first. Once you get your head around it, it's simple enough, although easy to lose out to an AI you didn't notice.
As I said, the actually idea is sound and I could see myself playing a later instalment, however this one is too basic and the good parts are hidden far too deep and overwhelmed by the bad. Possible check it out in a sell, but not worth full price.
There have also been a few performance issues. My computer is pretty high end, but it seems to strain slightly when running. Should be noted.

Divinity: Dragon Commander is, in many ways, a game that shouldn't work. An odd hybrid of strategy (both turn-based and real-time), action, and dating sim, Dragon Commander nevertheless manages to weave this eclectic choice of genres into a coherent whole where no single element ever feels entirely out of place. Although never quite reaching the heights it aspires to, this is neverthelessread more a very entertaining title that manages to create a world in which you can argue about gay marriage with skeletons before transforming into a jetpack-wearing dragon, and somehow not make it feel as ridiculous as it sounds.

This game merges a multitude of elements to produce a game that is decent in every respect but excells at none. The politic system is fun and may at times have you pacing around your room considering the consequenses of your impending decision, while at other times it feels completely arbitrary. The RTS component is initially irritating until you get the hang of it, then it's funread more for a while to then becoming something you tire of an try to avoid .The two things that I enjoyed the most with Divinity:Dragon Commander are the interactions you have with the characters aboard the raven and resource managment on the strategic worldmap.
The character interactions mostly came down to choosing between two options, one clerly right and one clearly wrong, but it was still interesting to hear the well voiceacted reactions from your crew. The world map strategy I found engaging and required some thought. "Do I spend my money to buy some new facilities or do I buy more soldiers to reinforce a region which might be attacked in a few turns. Unfortunately
the game can be quite easily exploited thus nulifing any challange you may encounter at the later chapters of the game.
After all is said and done Divinity: Dragon commander is a very decent game, none of it's systems are great nor are they terrible. It mixes grand strategy with Real-time strategy and some light politic systems. If you have a weekend to kill this is a unique concept that is quite enjoyable.
