Hate This Game

Poornigel, Amazon
29 May 2011
  • Summary: They took everything I liked in Dragon Age and removed it, and made playing this game a drag, in comparison. There is so much I dislike about the new game, it is way to much to list here.

Cheap action game

Jimmy L., Newegg
25 May 2011
  • Summary: I gave this a 1 because I needed to balance out the easily amused players giving it a 5. This honestly is not a 5 game unless you're some huge fan boy. This is in no way a good rpg. Bioware has tried to make it a hybrid of Action and rpg.
  • Pros: The combat is a nice improvement, some minor quirks but it was good. Graphics are top notch, so good that the developers made sure you do a full run in the same area at least a dozen times.
  • Cons: The story started off okay but then it came down to questing because the hero is a champion and that's what champs do. Pretty much the main plot just disappeared after act 2 and it's turned into a MMORPG without the MMO. The entire world is really tiny and each quest leads you right back to the s...

DA II

Cian N., Newegg
25 May 2011
  • Summary: The recycled dungeons were ok, I could see from their point of view why it would be interesting to use different portions of the dungeons and to lock specific areas off much like most racing games do. You know, running the track backwards or cutting off half of the track etc..
  • Pros: It is a game that provides more than 20 hours of entertainment for single player. The combat was great, character pre-set gear was wonderful (I disliked managing everyone's gear in DA:O) The story was pretty decent and setup the plot line for a much expected 3rd game, and I felt I got my money's ...
  • Cons: The game revolves around ranged for the most part, as nightmare mode would required you to be ranged or a tank. I like to play rogue and I found myself to be quite useless when I tried the game on nightmare mode (melee rogue) Some of the fighting mechanics were whack as there were 2 significant b...

An Epic Adventure

John E, Amazon
22 May 2011
  • Summary: I held off and got into Dragon Age Origins late into the release the universe behind Dragon Age is revolutionary. Anyone who has played Origin must play Dragon Age 2. The game is must faster pace and if your playing it on a PC you should really set up custom hot keys.

Hack&Slash with better story than most H&S

Pax, Amazon
16 May 2011
  • Summary: When I got a copy of DA:O for Easter last year I was sort of excited. I actually never finished an RPG game as for me they just take too long and the stories are not that great. I usually prefer strategy games for their mechanics and cerebral activity involved plus the fact that there is no strategy...

So much better than the original!

trevor l., Newegg
8 May 2011
  • Summary: It's definitly worth playing through at least once :)
  • Pros: Streamlined faster combat that is actually engaging and fun to play. While RPG purist will whine and whine about not having many options with companion armor/weapons the items you have access to are quite awesome. The story was solid because it's not just a typical protagonist fighting the almigh...
  • Cons: Not as long as a game as the original. Sometimes the controls feel a little weird and I click to move when I wanted to attack.

It's no Baldur's Gate

Eric Rollence, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: It might seem odd comparing a PC game released today with a PC game released almost 13 years ago, but I'm going to do it anyway. Dragon Age II -- it's no Baldur's Gate. The biggest difference I can see between the two games is that Baldur's Gate is a PC Role Playing Game, and Dragon Age II is a PC...

Very Different and Very Good!

Leon S., Newegg
25 April 2011
  • Summary: I really cannot wait for the next episode while I play out as many of the paths as I can find through this epic game. DX11 on X-fired 5770's is amazing and I greatly applaud the creators of this game.
  • Pros: I love DAO and DAA so I was concerned about the changes I heard about in DA2. Some of those changes are esthetically pleasing and greatly enhance the visuals of the game. It becomes especially interesting if you import a DAO game (see Cons) and some of the consequences of your actions in that gam...
  • Cons: Unless you have played both DAO and DAA it will not fully import a DAO episode properly as it cannot see the "epilog" of the DAO game. Once you select a character who you have taken through DAO and gotten into DAA the import works properly.

THE HEIR THAT LOST THE KINGDOM...

NeuroSplicer, Amazon
25 April 2011
  • Summary: The original Dragon Age was a true masterpiece that marked gaming history forever. It was an epic cRPG that not only absorbed you into a world of scheming nobles, romantic witches and invading darkspawn but it was also an exercise in morality choices and balancing the clashing personalities of your...

Abysmal release for a what could have been a great sequel.

Lucky Revilleza, Amazon
25 April 2011
  • Summary: This doesn't feel like a Bioware game. I never known Bioware to rush a game before, but this just feels like it. There's no soul, boring story, and ridiculously dense characters. Only less than 5 minutes to convey the Champion's sorrow after the passing of his mother? I felt unconnected with him.
