Summary: Dragon Age 2 is a fun RPG with moderately high replay value. Because the development period was so short, it’s not as fleshed-out as Dragon Age: Origins. I've played twice as a rogue and I’m okay with the battle system. I like that the inventory, armor, and gift-giving choices are more simple than in Origins. If you see Zevran Arainai, King Alistair, and Bann Teagan, their faces aren't as pretty as in Origins, but the characters in your party are pretty well designed.
Summary: This is one of those games you are either going to love or hate, depending on your expectations of the game. I had bought this game when it first came out, I want to give a little backstory here before i go further into this review I loved Origins. I also don't have a lot of time to play games so for those that can finish games in a month or two (or much sooner) congrats.
Summary: It was fun. I made sure to finish every single quest I came across. I'm a completionist and I even got a little bored after running into the same dungeon ten times. Choices were fun though. Some really hard decisions... Overall I thought it was fun. I can tell the reuse of levels can turn certain people off.

Summary: ...hmmmmm... Okay. I'll review for you :] Dragonage 2 is the polar opposite to the experience that you gained from Orgins. It even seems like it was created by awhole nother team. Would'nt surprise me if it did..Now! :D don't take this the wrong way or anything, but dragonage 2 is decent. It has story and why you're doing what needs to be done. The characters in the game are alright themselves.
Summary: I loved the first one and wish the second one had as many options and variations as the first. It is a lot more linear focused, and I suppose some like that but I value liberty more. That said, I love the world and the stories. I eagerly look forward to Dragon Age Inquisition. I wholely recommend this for anyone who loves romance and fantasy novels. This is very much a choose your own adventure type story.
Summary: This is my third play through. I bought this version because I left my xbox version with a friend. I know there's a lot of contention among fans regarding DA2's storyline and gameplay versus Origins. I played the first, and while the story was wonderful and some of the animations were wonderful, the fighting and character development (Hawke really comes to life with his responses) in DA2 is what I like. There are two things wrong with the game.
Summary: I really liked this game even after hearing all the disappointments. Pros: I really enjoy the characters story the new art style battle system and streamlined interface ability to import origins save and hear/see the references about your warden and decisions. The cons or pro/cons: The lack of variety in environments which isn't to bad until a quest has you loading in a level just to talk to some one for one minute and then go to another level which is another load time.
Summary: Honesty is the best policy, and honestly the only reason I ever bought this game was to romance Anders. That being said, the story isn't an epic - but it is still enjoyable. The combat system isn't the worst I've ever played but it is far from the best as well. The scene settings are dull and repetitive and the game itself is glitchy as all get out.
