Summary: Let me start by saying i have played and beaten this probably three times and all of them were pretty fun. It has good combat, though i kind of miss the combat from Origins. Good graphics the main character talking is a nice change. I greatly miss the party camp and the long deep conversations you could have with the party members. The conversations with them in this game seem rather bland.
Pros: 1 Amazingly good battle scenarios and twists compared with dragon age :origins and its follow up. 2 The player based on his will can play it as a action game or a sort of rpg (you'll understand in the summary what i mean ) 3 Graphics are good 4
Cons: 1 Rating of the story in comparison to origins is 3 out of 10 2 The dialogues are easy but don't have the effect of uncertainty that resembled more reality to the game 3 No good boss fights (combat is still good))but no new character types introduced
Summary: I fell in love with Dragon Age Origins, i even have two different copy's of the game one for PC and other for 360. I waited really long time for Dragon Age 2. There were many positives and some negatives. As many people said and personally, i think it was rushed, but over all it was good. Very limited party interaction was a big downer, so as world interaction. I wasn't very pleased with story, but it was satisfactory and made me hope that Dragon Age 3 will be different.
Summary: Dragon Age II while many would say is lacking compared to the first one, I actually enjoyed it more than the first one. The game seems more simple and not too complex. Most of the time you are in one city and only leave it once to go to the dark roads, however the game improvises this with a great story. Since when do RPG's have to be non linear? In my opinion the more linear the more story. I have to warn some people though the first chapter is a little bit slow.
Summary: The score is just about right. Its a 'good' game, but when you have a predecessor that was 'great' you expect the sequel to be 'greater', so 'good' just doesn't cut it. This is the point most DA2 fanboys are missing.
Summary: With the exception of the watering down on party members armor management and over reuse of levels; DA2 is better than origin in every single aspect. It got better art, elves actually looks appealing which is a shame that we can't used them now. Graphics are also generally better and ran smoother in addition to great animations. I was also surprised how amazing my custom pc emotions animates, it really brought the game to live and brings a new level of immersion.
Summary: If you are a fan of DRAGON AGE ORIGINS, you will be supremely dissapointed with Dragon Age 2. Bioware took one of the best RPG's in a long time and destroyed it! The battle sequences are totally different, the tactics still stink, but at lease Origins had an option to turn them off. The graphics are nice, but does not save the game from being terrible. I thought I bought Dragon Age 2, instead I ended up with Mass Effect with swords. I wish I could get my money back!
Summary: Good read, though I'd rate the game a little higher. An 8 or 8.25 probably. I've enjoyed it quite a bit. Still, your score evens things out since so many reviewers have given it an inflated rating.

Summary: Loved the plot, the companions and the fighting styles, but I didn't like
the ending (it felt too unfinished – the result of a bad cliffhanger), and
I hated the clothes for the mages and I thought it was too short.
