Summary: This is an absolutely fantastic game, well written, beautifully rendered, interesting and challenging. But, this particular download is leaving a lot to be desired. Specifically the game. I downloaded all of the components and patches and was expecting to replay one of my favorite games of all time when the game crashed within 5 minutes of starting. Over, and over, and over. Buy the game, just not the downloadable format.
Summary: Was kind of dragon ageish but not the bomb DA orgins was. Miss the party banter at the time of the gamer's choosing. Had to wait to be able to speak to the other party memebers and then it was very LIMMITED. Not much traveling and maps were reused too much. My A.D..D couldn't hang with this repeat of repeat. That is why I left playing WOW too many copy paste repeats. Now, one thing you did get right is Fenris-Wow that is smokin' (Just don't tell my husband lol).
Summary: A different tone than Dragon Age: Origins, and obviously catering to Mass Effect fans vs KOTOR/Baldur's Gate fans that might have attracted people to DA:O. Hawke has dialogue and you lose out on some of the customization (no playable elves or dwarves) and some confusing retcon on the design of the Qunari, Elves, and Isabela & Flemeth, but it comes across as a cleaner game.
Simultaneously better and worse than DA:O but awesome value and a lot of fun

Summary: Make no mistake, DA:2 is a really good game. Is DA:2 overall a better game than DA:O? No. But, it is a lot more fun in some ways. EA / Bioware took some risks in messing with DA:O’s golden formula in an effort to make it more appealing to console gamers with mixed results. Some RPG elements are dramatically improved while others are decidedly worse off. Still, I am a little bit surprised it wasn’t better received by fans and critics despite its numerous faults.
Summary: this game despite the players responses if easily one of the best games of all time. 90% of bad reviews on this game are not about the game itself its about if comparison to the first one. the only complaint i had about this game was it was to easy...even on the hardest difficult i breeze through it. Every other aspect is awesome , Gameplay, Graphics, Music ext ext. i give it a perfect 10 because although easy its still engaging.
Summary: This will not successfully install, even though I tried running it as administrator and in various compatibility modes on a Win 7 computer and on one running XP. I have been able to successfully install other programs and games on my computer recently, and I have followed the most detailed help FAQ's I can find about this problem, which remind the user about running it as an administrator and in compatibility mode.
Summary: Even though I'm a huge fan of DA:Origins, I still tried to view DA2 on its own merits and not compare it to Origins. But this game was still disappointing. The graphics are good, I liked the protagonist, and I even enjoyed the combat mechanics (even though it has been simplified to the point of being entirely too easy). Its just that everything else about this game is bland.
Summary: Dragon Age 2 is the heroic dungeon crawling sequel for the Dragon Age Origins saga, but other than the title name "Dragon Age 2" the game is a lot different and smaller by comparison. (Don't get me wrong) This is not a bad game, but other than the improve graphics and combat play; Dragon Age 2 falls really short from the rich experience that was Dragon Age Origins.
