Summary: All the great features of the original title (Dragon Age: Origins) have been replaced by a console version that is lacking. It is a good game but if you played DA:O on PC this is somewhat disappointing.
Summary: The original Dragon Age: Origins was a true masterpiece that marked gaming history forever. It was an epic cRPG that not only absorbed you into a world of scheming nobles, romantic witches and invading darkspawn but it was also an exercise in morality choices and balancing the clashing personalities of your companions.
Summary: This is NOT the same kind of game as Dragon Age: Origins. Origins was a sprawling epic with a classic arc and a clear and defined "Hero" role with pretty easy-to-suss-out moral paths. Dragon Age 2 is less of the epic and more a study in the ripple effects of your character. You're the hero because it's YOUR story, not because there's some GREAT BIG BAD THAT MUST DEFEATED TO SAVE THE WORLD.
Summary: Overall: The next installment of the ground breaking Dragon Age RPG delivers increased special effects at the cost of talented writing, storytelling, and role-playing. Gripping adult moral themes that were introduced and explored in Origins are largely abandoned-- save for excuses to start fights that do not advance the storyline. Racial selection and other character development options have been dumbed down from Origins and removed.
Summary: So, with the new release of dragon age I wanted to play through the whole series. The first dragon age was great even if it has some camera angle issues and such. I rate it about 4 stars it is not one of my all time favorites, but I definitely enjoyed it. This second part it was horrible comparatively, who though gee lets give him companions that you cannot give them better armor that you find while exploring?
Summary: Even after playing 80 hours of Inquisition and giving up, this is probably my favorite game in the DA series. It's tight and compact and the soundtrack is AMAZING. I've clocked almost as many hours in this game as I did in Origins and Awakenings put together, which by definition means I've replayed this more than the original game. (And Inquisition's never even going to get finished, let alone replayed.
An amazing game with a great story and a superb ending

Summary: An amazing game with a great story and a superb ending. They recycle assets. For example, all dungeons look the same with different routes blocked off or open but otherwise the same in texture and layout. They have you return to the same areas numerous times. If you can get over that, it is a well designed game with great voice acting and a great story.
