Summary: A great RPG for the PC, the combat is fun, and the story is engaging. Yes, the majority of the game takes place in the same city, and there is repetition of the dungeons but it doesn't get in the way of a great story that let's the user influence the outcome.
Summary: After several Origin install/uninstall/re-download and installs this game doesn't launch at all. It is trying to run it in Windows XP with a Windows 7 Ultimate installation. When the compatibility check was done there is a missing file. Live chat with EA totally unhelpful. Bottom line from them? Just reboot. What?? Where's the missing file? Very frustrating to say the least.
Summary: ***WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS*** I originally came into contact with the Dragon Age games due to my friend. She went on and on about a certain elf named Fenris and I was dying to know what she was talking about. And, so, I sat down and watched her play...and thus my addiction began. Very differently than most other people, I enjoy Dragon Age 2 more than Dragon Age: Origins. Origins felt slow and when I played it, I felt like I was stuck in the castle forever.
I don't understand why everyone told me to skip this game

Summary: Many improvements over DA1's combat system, compelling storyline, better main-character-involvement (since the main character is less customizable than the warden in DA1)... In short, awesome sequel to DA1. I don't know why it is generally panned by lovers of DA1? Maybe they have a huge stick up their bums.
Summary: Overall it is a solid game. The story is engaging. However, I have some complaints (that have probably already been stated). This game lacks the variety expected in the games descended from the Infinity Engine. You can only play one character (it can be male or female), unlike in Dragon Age: Origins, where you could pick multiple races and origins within those races. In addition, you play through the same dungeons multiple times over the course of the game.
Summary: I know that a lot of people were disappointed by Dragon Age II when it came out, but honestly, while their points may be valid reasons for disliking it, Bioware games are still some of the best out there. Even the less-than-impressive ones they make are still cult classics. Yes, they took a departure from Dragon Age: Origins in that there is only one playable race (you can only play as Hawke), but the basic storyline is still amazing.
Summary: The game itself is enjoyable to play, but lacks the detail that made Origins so great. A few examples are that the companions have set armor that you can only find or buy upgrades for. When on a quest "new" areas end up being reused multiple time so you loose the fun of exploring a new area because it is the same exact area previously explored, but with a different theme or enemy. The character story lines are also weak compared the to characters in Origins.
