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.
Summary: I'm glad I only paid $5 for this game on my PC. I only purchased it so close to DA2 release because of this price and was interested in some of the mods, but not at the price of potential CPU burnout.
Pros: It's a great game, only reason I know this is because I do own it on the PS3 as well as it's expansions. So I give it two eggs for that, it would have got 5 if not for the con...
Cons: It for some reason uses a ton of your CPU. I've recently put together a rather good gaming computer using the new i5 2500k over clocked to 4.5ghz, and this game still ramps my CPU usage up to 100% on two cores.... Why on earth would this game need to use that much of my CPU?
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.
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.
Summary: Most overrated RPG of the year. The AI is terrible. Left alone, it will either sit around doing nothing, which means you go nowhere if you've chosen to play a ranged or back-line support class--or else it will rush blindly into enemies, leaving you to perform damage control and clean up behind as it...
Summary: The more disappointed I get. Summary: In my opinion, DAO is *not* the successor of Baldur's Gate, spiritual or otherwise. Now, I happen to think Planescape:Torment was the best CRPG ever developed, so I'll comment a little about that too (because some people inexplicably want to compare DAO with...
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...
Summary: Please understand I am not critising the game itself here, in fact from what I was able to play it seems to be a very good title, good graphics, nice music and and interesting looking plot. Unfortunatly I wasn't able to play much of it.
Summary: Disappointed. No feeling of discovery or play. Uninteresting character development and plot. "Adventures" felt like running around doing chores. Stopped playing half-way through and never went back.
Summary: Wouldn't install from disc had to download from ea store with product key and pretty much spent the day I would have like to have been playing it trying to get it to work. The game itself is great
