Summary: The game was great on its own. I enjoyed the game play, the atmosphere and the story. However if you are looking for a game to live up to Dragon Age: Origins or Dragon Age: Awakening, look somewhere else.
Expected to hate it, but this game is really well done.

Summary: I expected to hate this game (I just bought it this year, largely because I'd read so many bad reviews of it by fans of Dragon Age: Origins). Well, I decided I had to play through it before the third game in the series comes out so that I'd be caught up on the story.
This game only accomplished two things better than Dragon Age

Summary: This game only accomplished two things better than Dragon Age: Origins. I enjoyed having my character voiced, it completed the gap in Dragon Age: Origins conversations that was missing. Secondly, I enjoyed how much more visceral the combat was, except it was a bit over the top.
Summary: Dragon Age 2 is a very different game than Dragon Age: Origins. There are some better features (faster combat, better graphics, fully voiced main character) and some that are worse (reused environments, less freedom with using inventory items, oversimplified combat) but overall it has a great story...
Same idea, fun story, thank you for not messing too much with the formula

Summary: Much different than the first Dragon Age, namely because this adventure isn't across a scrolling landscapre, but in a microcosm of one large city-state. I still like it very much. Can't wait to play the next edition.
