A sequel more like Spider-Man 3 than The Dark Knight
14 March 2011
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...
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.
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...
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...
Summary: As I came to write this review, I read over my glowing 5/5 reviews for Mass Effect & Dragon Age Origins. I'd even downloaded & played out the Witch Hunt DLC to round out my DAO saved games before import into DA2 just as DA2 arrived.

Summary: Having being awed by DAO I was expecting at least a certain degree of the same magic to be retained in its sequel. I was dissappointed, in fact my brand new preordered version is going straight out of the disk drive into the bin.
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.
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...
