Summary: Much better than DA:02, Dragon Age Origins is one of those games I've come back to several times. It's fun, a bit challenging at times, and overall a good enjoyable game. The Ultimate Edition gives you all of the DLCs for the game. The added missions and some extra gear flesh out more of the story, and give you an extra companion at that. Actually, typing this review makes me want to go play the game again, I may have to do that tonight....
Summary: It came promptly and wrapped safely in bubble wrap. Had ALMOST all of the inserts that came with the game, which are the manual, the gamestop pre-order insert, the collectors edition insert, the warhammer insert, and the cloth map, except for the game activation code itself. Thankfully I didn't need it, but if I did I would have been disappointed.
Summary: After downloading successfully, I was able to install the Awakening expansion, but it wouldn't show up in game. However, when I went to look at the contents of the Dragon Age application, it was pretty clear that the expansion was there... it just needed a coding tweak in order to show up.
Summary: I've heard a lot about this series and after finally playing the first installment I can see the appeal. The story lines are fantastic, the different starting stories for each class/race combination are all quite original. The gameplay itself can be clunky at times, controlling four different characters in the heat of battle can lead to quite a bit of confusion especially with the friendly fire aspect of a lot of spells and abilities.
Summary: I wasn't sure if i would like it or not when I first bought it because I heard about the game ,but never really played it before. However, I was still very excited to start playing. First, downloading it takes a while , but eventually I was able to play with no problems. If it's slow it's usually because of the internet. I love the graphics and my character. I like stories in a game so it was fantastic. Recommend to those who like these type of games. Buy it!
Summary: Dragon Age Origins is a good RPG. The story is great as is the over game play. The controls are done well for controlling three to four people. I loves the Dwarf story it was the first time and any game I felt like is a really under ground in a vast maze, like Moria. What takes away from the game is that there are too many cut scenes, almost have the game is cut scenes.

Summary: I originally couldn't install the game at all, it fails with no error message and there are hundreds of posts about this problem online, and also many complaints here. Most problems are with Win 7/64. The MS site lists this game as incompatible with Win 7/64. The ES website is NOT helpful at all. After wasting hours myself, I was really bummed, so I gave up and went to Best Buy to buy the PS3 version. (Sorry Amazon, sometimes talking to a real live Geek is very helpful.
