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.

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 .

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!
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...
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.
