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: 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.
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: 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.
Dragon Age 2,...A below average game from a usually above average developer

Summary: Introduction Let me start by saying that I play both PC and Console games so don't have a bias in that regard. I purchased the PC version with the free collector's edition upgrade. This means that I received most if not all of the DLC available at launch for no extra charge. I chose to purchase the PC version over the PS3 or Xbox360 versions simply because there are no mods for console versions and I personally like mods.
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: First and foremost, I played the first Dragon Age on the PS3 and thought it was a great game. But 2 days before DA2 was released, my PS3 died (red light of death). And I am still not sure if I'm going to replace it or not. So I got the PC version of DA2. And I must admit that the keyboard / mouse combo is not my favorite and I enjoyed the PS3 gamepad controller better. I also don't have the graphics card to run DA2 in DirectX 11.
