We do not want to gut the story and its complexity, so we can only recommend that you play it. If you are only going to get with the main story, the game will last you about 60 hours. With the secondary missions it is very easy to exceed 100 hours of play.

With each of these ways of playing the interface is fully adapted, for example if you use keyboard and mouse you will see the version equivalent to the PC where you can handle as you would on your Mac. It is really comfortable.

Even if you are not used to playing on the touch screen, it lends itself to long sessions of gaming. Although there are some buttons that take up some space on the screen and the scroll should be done with two fingers, one ends up getting used to it. Gaming on the iPad turns out to be a great way to enjoy Divinity Original Sin 2 in both casual and intense ways.
Finally, regarding use a controller Regarding, we have tested the game with the control of an Xbox One. Having played Divinity Original Sin 2 on the console before, we can say that the experience is practically identical. Being able to move through the game as if we were playing on television with a console is something tremendously gratifying.
The game performs very well, we have tested it with an iPad Pro 12.9 (2020) and having the whole screen and that processor to play with, has been a real joy. It is true that it is not an iPad Pro with M1 chip, but still the game performs extraordinarily well. It has the odd jerk when loading the game but afterwards the fluidity is incredible, the game moves with a smoothness worthy of a Mac or a new generation console.
On the other hand, the texts, at least in the version in which I played, sometimes do not adapt perfectly to the interface, which gives the feeling that the game is somewhat “broken”. In any case, Larian is working on correcting these kinds of things and many of them have already are solved, but it is more to put some fault than anything else.
In short, the game is brilliant, incredible, having a game of this category on an iPad is the closest thing to a A dream come true, especially for the most fans of RPG’s. Having all the control options and that they work in such a solid and simple way makes we can only recommend this kind of games.
