Summary: I waited, and stayed up late on the release day in order to play this hyped up game with hopes it would be as good as the original. I was sadly mistaken to find the game lacking in more than one area. Custimization is almost completely taken out of this game, and the player is given very little options to customize the main character. If you hoped on being any race other than human forget it, and go purchase dragon age origins.
Summary: I've been to EA tech support twice now and thy still can't get my signature edition content to unlock properly. They treat me like I'm a criminal because their system is broken. I paid to pre-order this game and get nothing but stress and aggravation in return. This whole business of unlock codes is really beyond annoying when they are buggy. I don't know why I bother buying anything from EA anymore...
Summary: This game was ok but the game felt rushed, alot of the area maps felt like they were just copy and pasted. In the game 7 years pass for the hero but im sure it must have felt like a prison cause all the layouts were the same. All in all it was an ok game but nothing compare to part 1.
Summary: I expected this game to be similar to DAO and it was, in no way, like it. It looked very cartoony to me. Hawke's fighting style was like a medieval ninja. While fighting there was so many things blowing up, fire, blood everywhere I didn't even know where my PC was. And the companions from DAO? This was the final straw for me. They look NOTHING like they did in DAO. Zevran turned into some alien-looking, scrawny, huge eared thing.
Pros: 1 Amazingly good battle scenarios and twists compared with dragon age :origins and its follow up. 2 The player based on his will can play it as a action game or a sort of rpg (you'll understand in the summary what i mean ) 3 Graphics are good 4
Cons: 1 Rating of the story in comparison to origins is 3 out of 10 2 The dialogues are easy but don't have the effect of uncertainty that resembled more reality to the game 3 No good boss fights (combat is still good))but no new character types introduced
Summary: The score is just about right. Its a 'good' game, but when you have a predecessor that was 'great' you expect the sequel to be 'greater', so 'good' just doesn't cut it. This is the point most DA2 fanboys are missing.
Summary: With the exception of the watering down on party members armor management and over reuse of levels; DA2 is better than origin in every single aspect. It got better art, elves actually looks appealing which is a shame that we can't used them now. Graphics are also generally better and ran smoother in addition to great animations. I was also surprised how amazing my custom pc emotions animates, it really brought the game to live and brings a new level of immersion.
Dragon Age 2,...A below average game from a usually above average developer

Summary: Introduction Let me start by saying that I play both PC and Console games so don't have a bias in that regard. I purchased the PC version with the free collector's edition upgrade. This means that I received most if not all of the DLC available at launch for no extra charge. I chose to purchase the PC version over the PS3 or Xbox360 versions simply because there are no mods for console versions and I personally like mods.
