Summary: I have not played this game in a while.... But that which I could remember is that they revamped the combat system. Combat is much more fluent. And it seems you can do everything on the fly. The game-play itself other than the combat goes like this. It plays like a storybook and I am not talking just about acts of chapters. Think of it as a living breathing adventure game without the adventure part and still an RPG.
Summary: Love this game and is an excellent sequel to the original. Very well created and the detail is phenominal. The fact that it tells a different story about the same event is something that you rarely see in video games. The best feature in my opinion is that based on how you let the game play out, you can meet characters from the first Dragon Age and get updated news from the characters in the first game.
Summary: No exploration at all, small map. Can't adjust the keys to your liking and the entire game you stay in the same city, not worth the 5 bucks i spent on it. So boring is the best way i can describe it. I fell asleep playing this game it's so dull after about 30 mins, more talking then playing. If you like listening to crap the whole game and a few fight scenes here and there through the whole game then it's for you. More like a book then a game.
Summary: I had already owned the xbox version and most of the DLC. In preparation for the next one in the series, which I will be buying on the PC, I needed to replay through the PC versions. Got this one on sale for 5 bucks at Xmas 13. The game does however use origin, which is ugly and bad compared to Steam. I wish it had used steam also but EA had to use their own system when steam was already doing it right.
Summary: Wasn't bad, wasn't good either. They could have done so much more with this game from the original game. The reuse of environments was terrible. I did like the look of the environments and many of the character makeovers was done well, some good and some not so good. The story wasn't bad for an RPG, until the forced ending. Bioware blew it on this one.
Summary: I liked the first one much better. This is very limited on the characters you can play. The combat system is completely different as well. It's much less strategic. Play the demo first and see if you like it before you buy it.
Summary: Love the game play. If you have played Dragon Age Origin, you will love this one as well. You can also import your DA1 saves into this game. Though the game can use more maps but overall, I like it.
