Summary: As a player of the Mass Effect series, I decided to try Dragon Age for the storyline. I'm not a fan of the fantasy genre, but it was BioWare so I figured the story would at least keep me tied in. Ultimately I cannot play the game because it requires an internet connection to install the game and I currently don't have access to the internet from my game computer.
Great Game, pathetic tech support, questionable efficiency

Summary: I can't say enough great things about the game itself. Although the conversation's can get tiresome when trying to get straight to the 'hack-n-slash', some of the conversations between npcs can be incredibly amusing. 2 npcs (not directly associated with the pc) discussing the meaning of life. "What if we are all just a dream?" After I got used to needing to have a few lengthy conversations, I now find some of them to be quite entertaining.
In-game advertising for additional content ruins an otherwise good game

Summary: After paying forty bucks for a game, it's really disappointing to find out that many of the best-sounding quests are DISABLED until you cough up MORE MONEY to add them. I don't have a problem with a game company offering additional content for additional money. What bothers me is when you're going along in the game that you paid for, and hear about an interesting quest, but when you try to accept it, it won't allow you to unless you pay money to Bioware.
Summary: Please keep in mind this is a review for the collectors edition and not the game itself. Honestly, this box set is not worth the hastle to find and buy. The cloth map is falling apart, you get most of the extra codes in the standard edition, and the extras dvd I got (in two different cases) had minor scratches in the same area on the disc. The only thing I found worth while on this disc was the soundtrack anyway (not a fan of "making of" documentaries).
Summary: This product is "new" the contents is out of date! The code for installing additional content has expired. As noted in previous review, altho this needs to be the main point of attention not buried in reviews! Disappointed!
Definitely what was promised, but perhaps too late

Conclusion: For a long time many gamers had been asking for a true, epic, 70-hour-long RPG with depth, content, and lore that could rival the likes of Elder Scrolls, or even Lord of the Rings. BioWare were one such developer who delivered in the past (Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Knights of the Old Republic) but had since turned their attention toward more action-orientated, mainstream focused games.
Conclusion: Should have been fantastic, gotta agree with a lot of the reviews however; wifey is about halfway through and it has always crashed every hour or so. Now it barely runs, She has to attempt to load multiple saved games to get one to work. Before the fanbois flame me, the game is patched, her PC has up to date drivers and checking online forums the game is awash with bugs and problems. Shame .
Summary: Extremement exigeant, beaucoup plus que d'autres jeu du meme editeur, notamment Kotor, neverwinter nights ou encore Mass effect, pour ne citer que ceux auxquels j'ai joués. Les combats sont très difficiles demandent beaucoup (trop) de preparation stratégique comparé a leur predecesseur. Ajouter a cela une interface peu pratique et des cinematiques moches, ou l'ultra violent cotoie le mauvais goût, les doublages peu credibles.
Summary: När spelet går på typ 200 kr så skulle jag säga, visst köp det om du vill ha et nytt rollspel och har alla andra som finns, men jag skulle inte göra det om det kostar mer, den dåliga grafiken förstör allt.
