Summary: Loving Dragon Age: Origins, I had been waiting all year for the much talked about sequel. Pre-ordered and everything. Started the game thinking it was brilliant, but slowly started to lose interest, even becoming enraged by the end.
Summary: I would wait for this game to become lower in price. The graphics are outstanding but the game-play was just awful. Just felt like a $30 expansion pack. The game is nothing like a rpg, just so linear and no real interaction with the party members. Cant really give them items to help. Having them wear the same thing gets kinda boring. I have beat this game so many times with different characters and its all the same outcome.
Summary: Unfortunately BioWare has sold itself to the EA devil, and this game exemplifies it perfectly. The game was obviously rushed, and does not live up to its predecessor. Where DA:O presented you with an epic story, DA2's "story" is barely present. I often found myself questioning "why am I doing this?". Because I really had no idea why I (or my Hawke) was supposed to care about anything going on.
Summary: Well I picked up this game when it came out on Tuesday very excited because of how good the original was. After the first day I was less than impressed... The game is split up into 3 chapters although outside of the final confrontations at the end of each not much sets them apart.
Summary: The overall graphics are better than Origins, but the details are where they mess it up. Every character has the same look to them, namely an elongated face. The Elves are horrible looking, and since when did Sten have horns?
Summary: Ok, first off, I have not had a chance to play this. However it seems you have to rate it none the less. Thus I based my choices on the last game. Now, this brings me to my problem. Since when did PC games start costing the same as XBOX or PlayStation title??? I always seen games for systems go for $59.95 while the PC games always went for $49.95. I really hope that this is not going to be the start of a new trend.
Summary: This game is a fair PS 2 title, for the year 2003. It has loads and loads of cut scenes for those who like that sort of thing, and the combat system is pretty enjoyable if you like enemies teleporting onto you and exploding in a mist of vicera as you kill them. It also has plenty of mindless 'fetch' quests as you run around the approximately 300 square meters of reused maps available. Did I mention lots of cut scenes.
Pros: Removing it from the hard drive. Cut scenes if you like cut scenes.
Cons: Everything pretty much, if you like RPG games.
Summary: I feel I must respectfully disagree with the review given by limimi. While not a bad game, Dragon age 2 is by far the weakest offering from developer Bioware in the last decade. It fails to measure up in both scope and substance to its predecessor Dragon Age: Origins. One of my biggest gripes with this game is with its limited scope. Being stuck in Kirkwall for the majority of the game means you are going to be looking at the same scenery for much of it.
Pros: Combat is more responsive, Graphics are very polished
Cons: Blatantly obvious recycling of scenery, Story is underwhelming, NPC development is disappointing, Gameplay composed of repetative fetch quests
