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

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.
Summary: After playing through Dragon Age: Origins several times, I was ready for a sequel the second I finished the first go-round. I mean, Bioware has only put out excellence in previous sequels, so why should this one be any different?
Summary: I am a big fan of Dragon Age Origins and was very disappointed in Dragon Age 2. In Dragon Age 2 there is very limited ability to personalize your character. You can only play human and if you choose a warrior you do not have the option of utilizing two sword as you did in Dragon Age Origins.
Summary: I truly loved Dragon Age Origins, I thought was a great game with terrific music, great story and fairly easy game play. I would have rated that game a 9 of 10 easily. Unfortunately, I can't give the same kudos to Dragon Age II, which I would rate a 7 of 10.
Summary: I have to agree with most of the other reviews that are already up: this game's a disappointment, especially after such a terrific lead-in as "Dragon Age: Origins". I've been playing RPGs since before the first game in the Ultima series; that was decades ago.
Summary: The biggest reason I loved Dragon Age: Origins was the immersiveness of the game. Making decisions and living with the consequences. Then going back to the beginning and see how a different character and different decisions change the game. What happens changes based on my decisions.
Summary: Dragon Age: Origins is officially one of my favorite games ever. While I've had other games that kept my interest a month or two, I literally played Origins from Nov 2009 when I bought it straight through to the release of the sequel.
Summary: How do you take one of the best PC games and instead of improving upon it take two GIANT steps backwards to every other average console like game. How disappointing. Dragon Age I was unique and addictive. Dragon Age II is a pale, sad relic of what could have been.
Summary: I found the game fun to play, but ultimately a bit disappointing, for the following reasons: 1. Too short. I finished the game in about a week. 2. Many dungeons are exactly the same, even down to the same objects in the same locations!
Summary: What I love about Bioware games, is the feeling of immersion I get from making my own decisions, and living the consequences. But the method of story telling in this game, makes me feel like I get to write every third chapter of a book.
