Dragon Age 2 review (PC)

  • Excerpt: For me, two things defined Dragon Age: Origins , one of the most ambitious and fictionally rich RPGs in recent years. The first was the depth to its world, the cavernous reach of its narrative, which included a history spanning many thousands of years.

  • Summary: It may make a terrible first impression, but I grew to love it.
  • Pros: Excellent writing; story delivers in the end; some refinements to the leveling up system make character building easier; much of what made the first game great is still present; tons of replay value
  • Cons: Numerous nuisance-level bugs; the explorable world is much smaller; story starts very slow, a lot of Mass Effect influence makes the franchise seem less unique.

  • Summary: Much of Dragon Age II 's appeal had to do with its emotional impact. As protagonist Hawke's circle of friends grew, so did your connection to the ensemble cast--but it was a connection the game earned over the long haul.
  • Pros: New, roomier environments to explore, Combat remains entertaining, Some nice story moments
  • Cons: Annoying sound glitches, Some enemy encounters are bugged, Final boss is broken in multiple ways

  • Conclusion: Helping with this storytelling is all of the character interaction one will do in the game be it with quest givers, Hawke's family, or other members of his party. Compared to a lot of Bioware's previous games, the options during conversations seem a lot more cut and dry with a good response, and an...

  • Excerpt: In addition to having an incredible quality track record among RPGamers, BioWare also has another strength: among RPG developers, they have one of the fastest turn-around rates for producing new games, particularly in the last few years.

PlayStation Universe

  • Summary: Dragon Age II offers an action-oriented RPG adventure with enough refinements to improve upon the stellar Origins. However, the new streamlined combat, loot, and exploration system may turn off hardcore RPG followers.
  • Pros: The fast-paced yet tactical combat system, The terrific character development and dialogue system, The gripping fantasy atmosphere
  • Cons: The narrative comes up short in places, The repetitive quests, battles, and environments, The streamlined RPG elements

  • Summary: Heroes often come from auspicious origins – that was the story told in the first Dragon Age game as players gained insight into the world of  the game thanks to an eternal conflict between inhuman darkspawn and the people of Thedas.
