Summary: I know a lot of reviewers were saying they didn't like DA2 because it wasn't DAO or something but personally I didn't enjoy DA:O much at all and I loved DA2. It's a lot more intuitive and the fights were more fun. The story was more interesting and I felt more invested in the characters too.
DA2, Dissappointment Is Thy Name - A spoiler ahead.

Summary: When I got this game, I thought to myself "wow, improved graphics, improved combat UI, great!". It was horrible to find out that not only the story has NOTHING in common with DAO, it changed a lot of the wonderful lines and characters of Dragon Age: Origins.
Summary: I am weary of game manufacturers creating a half a game that you can play through in 10-20 hours and then charging you to download the rest of the game when they finish it in the form of downloadable content, or DLC. This is a ridiculous trend that needs to stop.
I loved Dragon Age Origins...but was a little disappointed by Dragon Age 2.

Summary: I was a little upset about how they had rushed the making of this game since it was so anticipated after DAO. The graphics are wonderful and the combat style was better...however I feel that the story line suffered greatly.
Superficial and lacking. Terrible, in comparison to DA: Origins.

Summary: Cartoonish looking Darkspawn, "clean" looking level environments, spazzy combat w/ weightless weapons, moving and jumping around too fast, waves of exploding enemies, all of which hearkens to hack n' slash console games, re-used levels...
(3.5 stars, rounded up) All the criticisms are true... but I still enjoyed it

Summary: I debated buying this because of everything I'd heard about the game. It went on sale for $5 and I figured, why not. I went in knowing the common complaints about this game and with expectations set accordingly. - So, yes, there are endlessly recycled dungeons.
