D:OS is a gorgeously polished old-school RPG in the traditions of Baldur's Gate and similar top-down isometric games. Its story is engaging and deep if one takes the time to slow down and read.
Beautiful graphics and amazing soundtrack
Crunchy tactical turn-based combat (reminiscent of Fallout/Fallout2 and XCOM meets digital D&D)
Rewarding to play without the help of online guides -- provides a real sense of accomplishment & advancement
Thoughtful storyline with no "morality meter" -- your choices can affect the plot and open or close certain possibilities
Good mix of RP-investigation, puzzles, exploration and combat
Very little hand-holding: no quest trackers on the radar, easy to get in over your head in combat. Fun and brain-teasing!
It's multiplayer co-op! Go find a duo buddy on your friends list.
Cumbersome inventory system
Lots of text to read, if you don't like text (why are you playing old-school RPGs if you don't want to read, tho?)
Early game can be difficult until one figures out the character build system. Plan on re-starting once or twice to find a build you like for your Source Hunters
Some combats can be very puzzle-like... this may be a + or - depending on your personal preferences.
9/10 would replay and struggle against the oblivion of the Void again.
