A sequel more like Spider-Man 3 than The Dark Knight

Plastix, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Having enjoyed many of Biowares games in recent years, I can't help but feel disappointed by this game. If it was called anything other than 'Dragon Age' then perhaps I would have rated it one star higher, but as it stands it is unfortunately always going to be seen as the poor, simple and under-developed relation. It just feels shallow. Both in implementation and in story.

Epic fail

  • Summary: I am not going to list all the faults of this game. There are many, dotted around the reviews. I am going to focus on the one elephant: combat. When you fight in an RPG, you do so with a number of character types. You have the fighter(s) at the front, getting stuck in. You have ranged weapons at the back, providing cover and picking off opponent archers.

They've wrecked it.

  • Summary: I'm a veteran of many bioware and other rpgs. I loved Dragon Age- it was excellent. This is a pale shadow of that game (and, indeed, of any other Bioware game I've played). This is essentially a console button-masher with a half decent story added on. Environments are re-used time and again, and money has been saved by keeping the entire game effectively to one tedious location.

Dragon Age Lite

  • Summary: I haven't played the original game so perhaps that's a good thing, as judging by the reviews it seems the first game was much better. After 10 hours of gameplay overall i'm quite enjoying the various plot missions and dialogue, but in comparison to the recent Two Worlds 2 this game is a real letdown. The locations are sparse to say the least - they are literally deserted and devoid of any personality.

Nowhere near as good as most people expected.

  • Summary: I cannot quite understand the thought process behind Dragon Age 2. Bioware produced one of the finest RPGs ever in Dragon Age Origins and with the various add-ons - particularly Awakening - seemed to indicate that they were intending to take their concept and improve on it in future. They haven't done that though.

Beware if you enjoyed Dragon age Origins

Ell, amazon.co.uk
13 March 2011
  • Summary: Previously rated 1 star. Returned for another shot and found myself playing for 6 hours+! So the very poor rating seemed a touch harsh. Pros: Something has me hooked Only 1 crash. Cons: As described by other reviewers - my main gripes are the laughable combat, the total lack of any exploration - there is a map overlay in your face the whole time and the term linear is an understatement, simplified into non existance the system for inventory and merchants, huge yellow...

A poor immitation of a sequel

Robert Sullivan "R_Sully", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: To say this is a sequel to dragon age I personally feel would be wrong. The original was a true pc rpg and played as such, it is clear that following the success of the original on the console format the developers have tried to maximise on this audience which has turned this game into just another generic hack and slash. The main selling point for myself on the original dragon age was the complex strategies which were required to overcome some truly impressive enemies.

Sadly Disappointing

Vickie McCoy, amazon.co.uk
13 March 2011
  • Summary: I had been so so excited about the arrival of Dragon Age 2! I had played the demo and was really disheartened, but I thought - hey, well the whole game cant be that bad, right? The gameplay is really simple and basic, it takes no "rpg skill" or tactics and the maps and dungeons... well, its like they designed 2 or 3 and used it over and over again, shocking! On a positive note though, it is very pretty and the characters have depth and personality.
