Not worth your time, an entrapment scheme by Electronic Arts.
18 November 2012
Summary: This game started out ok but in a moment you'll see why it deserves 1 star overall. As a big fan of Oblivion, who needed to move on after mastering everything and played all the mods, the third-person transition was hard to accept. After getting the hang of it finally, the game stops and asks you to PAY more money to keep playing. The game sends you to Bioware's web page where you're supposed to pay $7 to extend the game 1-2 more hours.
Beware: The DLC is a download code that expired last year

Summary: First off, I love Amazon. One email explaining the situation and 3 hours later they responded with a refund. Secondly, I love this game. I've beat it multiple times on my PS3 and 360. It is possibly the best game of this console generation. My problem here is that I received a copy of DA:O UE that had a DLC code that expired July 30, 2011 and was only valid in Europe. That code was my only access to the DLC that makes the Ultimate Edition..
Summary: when i opend this game i was suprised to find that the code for all the extra content packs with makes this the ultimate edition had expired july of 2011. i tryed to fix the problen with EA games support but after a week with no success i gave up and returned this game.
Summary: I purchased everything separately as they were released; Origins, Awakening and all Downloadable Content. While DA:Origins is an awesome game, always will be in my book, the nastiness of DRM reared its ugly head at first with the DLC, and at that point there was still someone responding at Tech Support when the DLC would suddenly vanish as if never downloaded in the first place. With help I was able to 'reset' the content and it would become accessible again.
Summary: I think of myself as being pretty good with computers and Familiar with the DRM Measures on PC Games. Took me three hours to get a playable install and it installed on one computer when it wouldn't on the one I wanted it on. I had to tell Bioware Customer Service where to find my installation problems in their own forums and then they practically recited word for word what customers suggested.
Someone is playing a game alright but it isn't me.

Summary: This review is strictly about the disc version of this game. ATTENTION*** Windows 7 users. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After having bought this game it turns out that what I now have are two extremely expensive coasters because that's about all they are good for. I really feel like I am the one that got played. Oh yes, this game says that it's compatible with Windows 7 but it really isn't.
Summary: I ordered this game over a month ago and haven't been able to install it. I can't return it to Amazon, because it's been opened, and EA tech support has had me jumping through hoops trying increasingly implausible things. They were just about to tell me to return the software when they escalated my claim. At this point I think they're trying to get me to give up and pay full price for another copy.
Summary: I purchased this game for my pc after playing a borrowed game on my xbox360. I loved the game and was told the pc version is better. When i got my game i went to install it. At about 16% it stopped and said "failed to install". I had my nephew try it on his pc and got the same message. I have tried all the helpful tips that EA and several forums have told me to do. Nothing has worked. I returned the game thinking it was a faulty disc.
Great Game, but horrible DRM issues and poor tech support

Summary: Unlike the other reviewer, I can't even enable any of the DLCs because of the silly DRM system in place. I originally bought DA:O and Awakenings for the Xbox 360. I loved DA:O, and have to say it one of the best RPGs in years. However, the limitations of the console versions had compared to the PC version were quite noticeable. But I didn't want to spend a ton of money to buy everything again individually.
Pros: The pre-set group member AI is a cool feature but you can't have it work for whatever character you control unfortunately.
Cons: Not a sandbox game, automatic travel from area to area. Quests generally give no indication of where to go, names of quests don't match the areas on the map where they are either. Combat system forces you to pause constantly while you set up actions.
