Summary: Simply put, this game is just a waste of landfill space... The graphics are AMAZING, but that's about it. You can't level grind or max out your characters. So therefore, you can never realize their full potential.
Summary: Runs better then the sequel but art direction was garbage. The gameplay is corny, story is poorly written and executed, animations are stiff, terrible and reused constantly so get used to everyone moving like dolls. Get this...
Summary: This game is not only one of the most disappointing sequels ever made but a terrible RPG overall, to boot. It feels like a rush job EA ordered Bioware to put on the market to fill the void in their schedule before Mass Effect 3 came out.
Summary: The good: -faster moving graphics -less load times The bad: -poor storyline -rushed gameplay, and just became a button masher in the end -poor character development -lack of companion characters' customizability Just so much wrong with this game, and it didn't even seem fun.
Summary: This is the first sign of decline for Bioware. It only gets worse from here. Don't buy a game that continuously recycles the same environments over and over. A game that promises that your decisions matter leads you to 1 of 2 decisions regardless of your choices.
Summary: One of the problems with a sequel is the expectations, and many other reviewers have mentioned this game did not come close to meeting expectations set by the original, but that is putting it mildly. I disagree with those who say as a work in itself it is good. It is not even really ok.
Summary: This isn't a game review. I can't play far enough into this game to fairly do so. It is, however, a product review. I've run into a vast amount of hard freezes to my PS3 while attempting to play Dragon Age II and, judging from BioWare's forums, I'm one of many encountering this problem.
Summary: As one of many who loved Origins I was looking forward to a sequel when announced. After having played through DA II I don't care to play it again and have already gotten rid of my copy. I loved the story and characters on the first DA and with the sequel I didn't care for either.
Summary: I'll preface this mini-review with: I actually like the game. I do, it's mindless. After working long days and my terrible menial job that saps my mental capacities; it's nice to sit down with a mindless game that takes absolutely no thought what-so-ever to get through. But that's a problem.
Summary: Designed by focus group. By trying to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, Bioware has created game that never really develops it's own personality. Utterly forgettable, DA2 tries in vain to be darker, edgier and sexier, but only succeeds in trying too hard.
