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.
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.
