Summary: I had bigger hopes for this game. Not sure what all the hype was about and by a third of the way through I'd had enough. The combat is my biggest complaint. Having played The Witcher this pales in comparison as I give that game a 10 and Dragon Age is about a 4.
Summary: The graphics are good. The story is solid. The fighting is fun. The girls are hot. But overall the game is just too short. It took me 7 months to beat Guild Wars Factions. It took about forty hours to beat this buggy mess. And that's the other thing. This game is so full of bugs. It just crashes mid battle. The DLC's gets lost, along with all of the fine l00t earned. The cutscenes are too numerous and drag on forever.
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.
Summary: Disappointing, expected more after the hype that was made about it, game play is slow. Would have been better if it was a 1st person game like Oblivion.I guess this type of game has a following.
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.
Summary: Dunno what to say. I *wanted* to like this game. I don't usually buy games that I don't suspect I will enjoy. This one bores me to tears. The combat system is boring and the conversations are even more boring. The grammar's fine, but the conversations feel as though they were written by students in a high school class (not an advanced placement one either). They're predictable and dull and what tries to pass itself off as humor isn't very funny.
Summary: EA has a horrible and unreliable DRM that can lock you out of your purchased game content. I have purchased dragon age three times now. 1 original purchase, 2 online download, 3 expansion on DVD. With the authentication servers down, the game defaults to an locked out state as soon as you try to log in to verify your account. So I've spent $110 on this game and it's treating me like I tried to steal it!!!
Summary: All I can say is I fail to see why this is an "oblivion" killer, i felt confined in the first few minutes of the game, I had a hard time understanding the controls or how to do anything really, and I have played quite a few games. I think some of the premise could have been interesting but it wasn't my kind of game. I will also try again later but I was not initially impressed. also.... SERIOUSLY... NO MULTIPLAYER?
Summary: I'm gonna go against the grain here from the number 1 poster and not say this is the worst RPG of all time, because it most defitnitly is not. I will say however that all the things that ppl say make this game great really aren't what make a game great. Number 1 its has super uber duper mega awesome graphics. who give a crap what the graphics are like, is the game fun, are the controls good? Number 2 the story is super original, mega super rad man.
Summary: The actual game, dragon age origins, is amazing. The combat is very tactical, challenging and able to be approached in many different ways depending on how you want to play the game. The story is awesome and fast paced. It almost feels like a sand-box type game, except you actually care about the missions and have a clear continuing sense of direction. The characters are very memorable and have interesting interactions with one another.
