Summary: To me, Dragon Age: Origins doesn't have the most original gameplay. If you've played World of Warcraft or Guild Wars, you'll have a very familiar experience. The plot isn't the freshest either; however the most innovative component is the multiple starting sequences depending on the background of...
Summary: The Short List: Pros: - Excellent Story Line and Voice Acting - Overall visually stunning - Excellent combat with engaging complexity - Amazing replayability potential. - Tools for Mod community (this gets counted double its that amazing).
Great game, and well worth the price. BEWARE THE DRM.

Summary: Just bought Dragon Age Origins (ultimate edition). After putting about 12 hours into it, I can truly say that it's a wonderful game in the tradition of Bioware's Knights of The Old Republic, Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights; set in a new universe with dark fantasy and truly epic battles I...
Summary: I am writing this review for one reason: to pose a counter-argument to all the five-star reviews for this mediocre game. Some information about myself up-front: my favorite computer role-playing game (cRPG) is Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn (BGII).
Summary: I loved Mass Effect, Jade Empire and KOTR, I even beat Mass Effect twice! But Dragon Age, despite creating several different characters and getting close to the end of the game, I stopped playing it out of frustration.
Summary: This game was exciting and fun the moment I bought it. Then left it for about 3 weeks to come back and found it extremely annoying. I felt compelled to talk to all of the characters in the game because I don't want to miss anything.
Summary: So I end up the group of people who don't get the hype of this game. I liked the Baulder's Gate series, as well as the more recent Mass Effect, and figured I'd be into this game. But the first 7 hours or so play like a tutorial level. Not to mention the characters are boring and forgettable.
Summary: Graphically, it is quite beautiful. I didn't really care for the excessively bloody fighting, but understand that that is part of the experience (fighting, that is). However, there should be an option (other than the persistence of blood splatter) to reduce the level of bloodiness.
