Summary: I absolutely loved DAO and had to get DA2 but as I started playing I was disappointed. The Graphics were amazing and I liked the fast paced combat style but hated the constant button mashing. The story wasn't as great as I hoped but it had it's perks. Though I felt I didn't get as attached to the companions as I did in DAO. The thing I hated the most was the fact how they reused so many areas, that was what really set me off.
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.
Summary: From the get-go, the player has a general gist of what has happened to all of Thedas: The world is swept into conflict, and the one person responsible for bringing all of that chaos to a head is you: Taking the role of the Champion of Kirkwall, an individual by the name of Hawke. Now, the narrative in comparison to Dragon Age: Origins did indeed feel rather linear.
Summary: personally when i heard of dragon age two, i was hoping for more returns of the original characters and not just saying "hi" to them for a moment before your wisked off in another repeating questline. the areas are reused so often you can know the places by heart. the bosses way too easy even on harder difficulties. i mean they felt to me like a bunch of minibosses.
Summary: While this game was not nearly as good as its predecessor, Dragon Age: Origins, it is still a good game worth buying. The game is of decent length, and it took me a week if I did all the side quests. The combat is top notch, and it is one of the few elements that surpasses Origins. Its issues are that it is shorter than Origins, its story is shallow, and your choices really don't matter as much as you'd expect.
Summary: Now I LOVED the first game and was very excited about the second one despite a sense of being very unsure since it felt too soon for a sequel. And it seems I was right in feeling unsure. I'll try not to ramble too much, so i'll do a quick Pros and Cons type thing to keep myself from doing so.
