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: Combat was vastly improved over its predecessor, as were graphics, but that's about it. The story is decent but the world, as many have said is small, and dungeons are merely copy and pasted throughout the game. If Bioware manages to blend the perfections of each game with Inquisition, then expect it to be on of the best games of 2014.
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.
Summary: You are buying a special edition version of the game. This version was a Gamestop exclusive and came with features that expired over the years. If you are just looking to play this game, it's great but if your looking for the extra content, I'm afraid you won't receive anything.
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.
Excerpt: Dragon Effect 2…er…I mean Mass Age…sorry about that. Dragon Age 2. There we go. Dragon Age 2, Bioware’s sequel to the epic fantasy RPG released in 2009, is a clash of new and old. Like Mass Effect 2, Bioware has attempted to preserve the things that made the original great, while changing the formula just enough to accommodate new players. The question is, did they find a happy medium (ala Mass Effect 2) or did they go too far?
