Shame on you, bioware, for pretending this is a sequel

Summary: I originally reviewed this at one star after playing the first ten hours. After playing it some more, I've upped the review to two, but whether you'll like it or not depends upon whether you were expecting a roleplaying game or an arcade game.
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. Sure, it didn't have the D&D rule set and it had some questionable mechanics (like cool down periods for spells) but it did have a strong story, engaging characters, many many different and colourful...
Summary: All the great features of the original title (Dragon Age: Origins) have been replaced by a console version that is lacking.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...
Summary: I really wanted to like this game. I am a huge fan of Dragon Age: Origins and was super excited to try this game out. It let me down. Too hack and slash, not enough strategy, even on the higher difficulty levels. At least Dragon Age: Inquisition is cheap now :)
Summary: The reviews I saw were mixed, and I was a little apprehensive. While the game controls aren't perfect, they're very good. The graphics are a little stylized, but nicely done and the game play is excellent.
