Summary: Bioware managed to take a great game Dragon Age Origins and make it into a good game Dragon Age 2. I found this to be a very enjoyable game and a nice way to kill 50 or 60 hours, however unlike Dragon Age Origins I find that one play through is enough. I would not consider this an all time great RPG game.
Summary: If EA/Bioware had used the title of my review for this game, there may have been less backlash from the fans of Dragon Age:Origins. The name "Dragon Age II" sets expectations that the game will be a full blown sequel to Origins. Sadly, Dragon Age II doesn't reach that lofty goal. I have played many of Bioware's classic RPG's going back to the Baldur's Gate series all the way through Mass Effect 2. This is the first Bioware RPG where I had mixed feelings.
Summary: I still disagree. And the review was not 'rushed'. I bloody well took my time with it. As ZeroWolf said, when you have a game that is 'great' you expect the sequel to be 'greater' Okay, maybe 'greater' would be to much to ask. But the fact remains after playing Origins, you want a similar kind of experience with the same kind of depth. DA 2 isn't half as deep as its predecessor.
Summary: I waited, and stayed up late on the release day in order to play this hyped up game with hopes it would be as good as the original. I was sadly mistaken to find the game lacking in more than one area. Custimization is almost completely taken out of this game, and the player is given very little options to customize the main character. If you hoped on being any race other than human forget it, and go purchase dragon age origins.
Summary: I've been to EA tech support twice now and thy still can't get my signature edition content to unlock properly. They treat me like I'm a criminal because their system is broken. I paid to pre-order this game and get nothing but stress and aggravation in return. This whole business of unlock codes is really beyond annoying when they are buggy. I don't know why I bother buying anything from EA anymore...
Summary: This game was ok but the game felt rushed, alot of the area maps felt like they were just copy and pasted. In the game 7 years pass for the hero but im sure it must have felt like a prison cause all the layouts were the same. All in all it was an ok game but nothing compare to part 1.
Summary: I expected this game to be similar to DAO and it was, in no way, like it. It looked very cartoony to me. Hawke's fighting style was like a medieval ninja. While fighting there was so many things blowing up, fire, blood everywhere I didn't even know where my PC was. And the companions from DAO? This was the final straw for me. They look NOTHING like they did in DAO. Zevran turned into some alien-looking, scrawny, huge eared thing.
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
