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...
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: My title says it all really. I'm not saying it's bad, but the graphics have lost that visceral quality in combat; the rogue and warrior moves look (and act) more magical now, the combat looks "snappier" in the sense of Manga comics.
First Bioware game where I have to force myself to play it ...

Summary: Dragon Age: Origins was a bit of a moving back to the glory days of Baldur's Gate for Bioware.
