(3.5 stars, rounded up) All the criticisms are true... but I still enjoyed it

C., Amazon

  • 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. It's cheap and lazy -- I can understand having multiple quests in the same location to maximize reuse, but it would be nice if different cave systems had different layouts.

Good but not great. A PC successor built for a console generation

  • Summary: I've played through both Dragon Ages solely on my PC. I'm a big Bioware/Black Isle fan dating back to when I played through the Baldur's Gate games and I also enjoyed KOTOR and Jade Empire. Dragon Age was very much in the mold of the classic Bioware RPG with some nice new features and excellent graphics. It was easily the best RPG I'd played since Oblivion, and I had great hope for Dragon Age 2. Dragon Age 2 is essentially Dragon Age streamlined. The world is smaller.

  • Summary: To preface I have beaten Dragon Age on the computer. They took almost everything about Dragon Age I and ruined it in this game. Character dialogue is rehashed almost as much as the terrain and environment, you will see the same dungeon multiple times and it truly is game breaking, do not let anyone fool you. There are only so many times you can go on a fetch quest in the same dungeon.

Ok, but not as good as the first one

  • Summary: First and foremost, I played the first Dragon Age on the PS3 and thought it was a great game. But 2 days before DA2 was released, my PS3 died (red light of death). And I am still not sure if I'm going to replace it or not. So I got the PC version of DA2. And I must admit that the keyboard / mouse combo is not my favorite and I enjoyed the PS3 gamepad controller better. I also don't have the graphics card to run DA2 in DirectX 11.

This isn't Dragon Age.

Vesmic, Amazon
22 April 2011
  • Summary: This game was sold on the success of a previous game. Sadly, this game plays nothing like Dragon Age:Origins. If you are someone looking for Neverwinter Nights or Dragon Age Origins type of game style, this game simply isn't worth your time. If you are someone who enjoys an action game which safely allows you to skip half the dialog without any regret, this game may turn out alright for you.

Love this mousepad.

SnagglePuss, Amazon
13 April 2011
  • Summary: I just got a new iMac and was looking for a new mousepad and being a fan of Dragon Age 2 I picked this up, it's great! It's GIANT. Way Bigger than my previous mousepad which was a free one that came with the original Max Payne video game, I used that for years, but I felt like I want something bigger and better, and this is it!

Bioware Continue To Make Movies More Than RPGs

M. MacMahon, Amazon
13 April 2011
  • Summary: While story has always been a big factor in RPGs it was always in service to the gameplay. Western RPGs were born with the idea of roleplaying a character you design and making choices through that character that effect the story and game world. Since Baldur's Gate Bioware have been inching ever closer to removing this freedom and choice in order to make prettier movies.

Eh

B. Conaghan, Amazon
13 April 2011
  • Summary: We loved the original Dragon Age for the great story. DA2 is much harder to get into. I find myself not really caring about any of the storylines or characters and most of the time don't really know why I am doing each thing. That being said, it is still fun to play and the action is good.

dragon age 2

Willy, Amazon

  • Summary: I was very disappointed in this game. The game was to controlling unlike the other Dragon age games. You cannot just wander around you have to stay on the story line. I felt this game was boring and a ripoff.

Sad and disappointed

L. Kramer, Amazon
4 April 2011
  • Summary: I really can't add much to the reviews already posted. I never achieved the suspension of reality I look for in a really good RPG, whether computer or pen and paper. I've been playing computer RPG's since the time of the Apple IIe and have thoroughly enjoyed the steady progression in graphics and gameplay. I wasn't so thrilled with the usual thin or totally lacking storyline and Bioware was a breath of fresh air with their games.
