Summary: I consider myself a casual gamer at this point in my life..... I enjoyed the first game. I have also enjoyed the Mass Effect games. Once I got over the fact that the results of the first game did not seem to transfer into the second in a tangible manner I assume they set some of the story line, but I could not really tell,) I found the game enjoyable. The game play is fine. But hings do get repetitive fairly quickly.
Summary: i just got this mouse pad in the mail today and i have been using it for a few hours and it works amazingly well with my razer deathadder dragon age 2 mouse :) my mouse glides smoothly on this pad :)
Excerpt: I utterly enjoyed Dragon Age 2. The storyline was fantastic however, the maps were (in my opinion) reused far too often and you generally are wearing the same armors over and over again with nothing different expect the name. Though that didn't get in the way of becoming immersed into an interesting and creative storyline, with fair leveling aspects and options that actually affect the game.
Excerpt: One Warden against a mighty horde of Darkspawn, filthy creatures from underground, led by a giant corrupted god. Dragon Age: Origins certainly dropped the player right in it, with an epic quest to save the world. This time round, the story is much more grounded, with the player experiencing the lengths one child will go to in order to protect their family.
Summary: If you never played the first Dragon Age, you may enjoy this one a bit. Even so the story leaves you whole-fully unsatisfied. What could have been an epic game was turned into a lame action-RPG with only a handful of different set-pieces used for dungeons, and storyline that left me with the biggest "are you f'n kidding me?" face at the end, and on top of that the weirdest inventory/equipment system ever. Skip this one, even if give to you for free.
Good but not great. A PC successor built for a console generation

Summary: I've played through both Dragon Ages solely on my PC. I'm a big Bioware/Black Isle fan dating back to when I played through the Baldur's Gate games and I also enjoyed KOTOR and Jade Empire. Dragon Age was very much in the mold of the classic Bioware RPG with some nice new features and excellent graphics. It was easily the best RPG I'd played since Oblivion, and I had great hope for Dragon Age 2. Dragon Age 2 is essentially Dragon Age streamlined. The world is smaller.
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: We loved the original Dragon Age for the great story. DA2 is much harder to get into. I find myself not really caring about any of the storylines or characters and most of the time don't really know why I am doing each thing. That being said, it is still fun to play and the action is good.
