one step forward, two steps back - deservedly poor reviews

Summary: this game, though taking its name from Dragon Age Origins, bears almost no relation to its predecessor, and seems to be an entirely different, and inferior, game. the onlt move forward has been an incremental increase in graphic detail, terrain textures, and the inclusion of as choice of...
Summary: I retuned this game unopened after having preordered, I'm a long time pc fan who dislikes how game publishers and developers are trying to dictate what they want rather than what I want to purchase. Well I voted with my pocket.
Summary: Definitely not for PC RPG gamers. Few saving graces and all the flaws decribed in other reviews. I played for 3-4 hours and then gave up. Complete waste of a formerly good studio's time and my money.
Dwarves with a mighty chest mane......? Only on Dragon Age 2.

Excerpt: What is this game about? Dragon Age 2 is an RPG, a Role Playing Game, that is when you're a protagonist or a group of them and your main tasks is to follow along the main quests, side quests and discover what's going on in the current story.
Summary: First of all: in my 20 years of C-RPG experience I've never written a game review before, and that's because I've never felt the need to do so. I believe that with Drageon Age 2 a worrying trend is emerging, a trend I would like to address here: short development phases (18 month for DA2),...
Summary: To summarise my experience of playing through to the end, it started badly, got better, and then ended really badly. Personally, I don't mind the changes that have been made to combat and skills, and while removing the ability to equip your companions is a poor decision, its hardly a game breaker.
Summary: Wish I hadn't pre-ordered this. As a bargain bin purchase of the "Ultimate Edition" (with all the DLC content), once it's out in about a year, I might have been happier. As it is, the game itself is poor compared to any previous BioWare release, for all the reasons mentioned, which I see little...
Excerpt: Bioware outdone themselves with Dragon Age 2. Its a really great game, but is it better than its predecessor Dragon Age: Origins? Yes and no to that question, it all comes down to the player's preferences. In my opinion yes, mainly because of its improved combat gameplay.
Pros: Great graphics,althought it could be better;great gameplay;main character has voice acting now .
Cons: Inferior story compared to its predecessor;game does'nt let you freeplay when you finish it .
