(3.5 stars, rounded up) All the criticisms are true... but I still enjoyed it
22 February 2014
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.
Summary: This is a Dragon Age game in name only. The qualities that made Dragon Age: Origins great--an epic story, unforgettable characters, and engaging combat--are no longer present. Instead, what is presented is a superficial and, quite frankly, underdeveloped game.
Summary: I have not played this game in a while.... But that which I could remember is that they revamped the combat system. Combat is much more fluent. And it seems you can do everything on the fly. The game-play itself other than the combat goes like this.
Summary: Love this game and is an excellent sequel to the original. Very well created and the detail is phenominal. The fact that it tells a different story about the same event is something that you rarely see in video games.
Summary: No exploration at all, small map. Can't adjust the keys to your liking and the entire game you stay in the same city, not worth the 5 bucks i spent on it. So boring is the best way i can describe it. I fell asleep playing this game it's so dull after about 30 mins, more talking then playing.
Summary: I had already owned the xbox version and most of the DLC. In preparation for the next one in the series, which I will be buying on the PC, I needed to replay through the PC versions. Got this one on sale for 5 bucks at Xmas 13.
Summary: Wasn't bad, wasn't good either. They could have done so much more with this game from the original game. The reuse of environments was terrible. I did like the look of the environments and many of the character makeovers was done well, some good and some not so good.
Summary: I liked the first one much better. This is very limited on the characters you can play. The combat system is completely different as well. It's much less strategic. Play the demo first and see if you like it before you buy it.
