Do you feel Divinity Original Sin is being over rated?

This game is starting to feel like the new CD Project Red circle jerk on PC gaming forums. I almost bought the game during the Steam sale but held off for a better discount. How did you guys feel about it who actually bought it / spent more time researching it than me?

Just need an "I've not played it" option.
I have no opinion until I do.

I don't know if it's overrated, but I will say that people are making a really big deal out of it and it doesn't especially interest me.

Good point, didn't think about that, but surely you have to have some opinion formed if you looked into the game at all. May not be definitive, but you should at least have some idea if the game is the BEST THING EVAAAAAR or if people are over reacting

I'd say my opinion is, I don't know what kind of game it is.
Someone said it reminds them of fallout, I hated fallout.
Someone said it reminds them of the original divinities, so far I can't seem to get into them because of the combat. But I really enjoyed divinity 2.
And I like turn based, I'm decent at games like blackguard.

If it had a demo I could decide, but without one, I cannot. Let's plays make it look terribly boring, but all turn based games look boring from the outside.

the combat is very good. everything else is so-so. fortunately, you spend a lot of time battling.

I'm only 15 or so hours in, but I'm loving it so far. If it keeps up this quality it's easily the best RPG in over a decade.
