Summary: Games an action game moreso than a RPG. They mostly eliminated the strategy and RPG elements from the first game. They really dumbed down all the aspects from the first game. I'm going to spend as much time reviewing this game as they put into making it. Sound is good though!
Summary: I just got a new iMac and was looking for a new mousepad and being a fan of Dragon Age 2 I picked this up, it's great! It's GIANT. Way Bigger than my previous mousepad which was a free one that came with the original Max Payne video game, I used that for years, but I felt like I want something bigger and better, and this is it!
Summary: The Gamplay in this game is great, combat, class builds (at least for rogues, not mages) has been greatly improved. I dig the ME style dialogue, that was the one thing DAO was missing. Character interaction was much better than DAO (only because DAO had quite a few characters that came much later in the game, similar to ME1 vs. ME2; it's hard to build 10+ characters in one playthrough which is what I like to do). The storyline was too jumpy...
"Make sure you download the High Resolution Texture Pack"

Summary: Bioware has released a High Resolution Texture Pack for the PC version of the
game to make it look heaps better. So if you have a descent Video Card, make sure you download the pack from the
offical Bioware site( http://social.bioware.com/…/da2-patches ). The download is about 1 GB large and is completely worth it.
Summary: I've had a lot of fun with this game. It's more of an action rpg then Dragon
Age: Origins/Awakenings, but that didn't worry me any. I also didn't mind the
smaller setting. At the time of writing, I've spent at least 30+ hours with this
game, and I've enjoyed every moment. The game loses a star due to some bugs that
are present, which aren't gaming breaking, but are annoying, even with the
latest patch (1.02).
Summary: The graphics and story of dragon age are top notch. It really is a joy to
play through. The classes while limited are fairly even and each has a host of
special abilities bound to get the boo-yah! out of your mouth. Bioware have done a fantastic job the only downside is the limited content in
terms of races and classes. I can't wait for the expansions to come out as that
should advance these areas.
Summary: Frequently I hear that DA2 is not as good as the original, and somehow
“dumbed down” compared to Origins. However this is not the case. The
graphics are greatly improved from Origins, and the fighting is much more
immersive for the player. I especially enjoyed playing mages, which were a
boring choice for the PC in the first game–in DA2 I by far prefer playing as
Summary: the graphics are so much better than the first dragon age. the gamepaly is
different but awosome. it also allows you to load a saved game from origins and
awakings that affect your choices as it is the history the charater will live
Summary: The game has made some great improvements in certain aspects in comparison to
Origins and naturally has a few low points as well. The combat is a lot more fun
and visually entertaining for each of the three classes which is a very good
thing considering how much fighting you do in the game. The companions are very
likeable with the only downside being that there is less interaction with them
as opposed to Origins.
