Oh my broken heart!

Ms. J. McMullan "You stay classy San Diego", Amazon

  • Summary: I have been waiting for this game ever since I finished playing Origins for maybe the 4th time. I was hoping for a new story, companions and the odd improvment but I really didn't expect for the game to change so much! Main problems I have with the new game that were not an issue with Origins: - Can only play as human race - Camera is infuriating (hard to see entire battleground) - Cannot pull enemies back a few at a time, great for hard battles - Spell/action cool downs...

Crushing dissapointment

  • Summary: After all the hype leading up to this game I was hoping it would be something special, especially with it coming from the DA:O team. I was very wrong. First things first, this game requires an internet connection once installed and to gain usage of all the extra DLC (which i'll come back to) you have to be constantly connected to EA's servers. This is not mentioned anywhere on Amazon's page.

Disappointment with a hint of Deja vu

17 March 2011
  • Summary: I have looked forward to this game for months and have really enjoyed other games in the past such as Baldurs gate and DA:O. Dragon age 2 is different. Although i am enjoying the game i am failing to see where the storyline is heading. Being a grey warden gave purpose to the characters role, i am unsure what my 'champions' role is. Is it Thief? mercenary? money grabber?

Rush Job

  • Summary: Ok, well I'm going to do this review now, before I've completed the game, as that's never going to happen. I tried, I really did, however I can't manage to bring myself to play anymore of this. And that's quite an admission as I've shamelessly played and replayed just about every Bioware game going with wild geek-like abandon. No tactical view was a huge negative for me.

From Demo to game

apersonlikeanyother "Ape", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I have to say, this is a game so fraught with bugs that even the demo was released with bugs so huge even B-Films from the 80s and 90s would struggle to conceive. From the demo which many find unable to load to the game itself which is literally riddled with bug, it just seems ludicrous to imagine EA could not have spotted a single one of these before releasing the game.

Not an RPG

J. Wroe, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Is this a good game? I don't think so, although I can see how some people might. It's flashy, has lots of combat and decent graphics. It's not however a good RPG. For me the most important thing with an RPG is immersion. I don't care if it's turn based, D&D, Third person Third person...etc. But for me there is no immersion in DA2.

Buggy and disappointing

Mr. I. J. Mangles, amazon.co.uk
15 March 2011
  • Summary: I'm somewhat disappointed with this game on two scores. First of all, it lacks much of the subtlety of the first game. This is much more an action game going from one fight to another with very little thought required. You can skip through the conversations at break-neck speed if you want because they rarely seem to give you the opportunity to change things much. Second of all, like other Bioware games I've come across, it's very buggy.

This talk of dumbing down..

Mark Twain, amazon.co.uk
15 March 2011
  • Summary: It's true, and it's not just a blanket criticism. It all comes from REAL issues with the game. You can't use the gear on your party members anymore, they have restricted the skill and spell customisation of each character, there are only about a dozen locations in the entire game, it all takes place in ONE city which isn't even a very big one, and they re-use the same locations over and over. There are just two dungeons in the entire game which get used over and over.

Dragon Age 2 - Not as bad as some would have it, no where near as good as it should be

Mr. J. D. Rose "stunteddwarf", amazon.co.uk
14 March 2011
  • Summary: I'll say it up front, I'm a big fan of Bioware games, and have been since Baldur's Gate. Hell, I'll even by a game just because Bioware created it. That might just have to change after this title. This game has so many good and bad points I just have to break them down to make sense of them. DRM - -5 stars out of a possible +5 One of the biggest nightmares of my gaming life was hearing that Bioware had been absorbed by EA Games.
