Excerpt: The Dragon Age series is known for a lot of things: amazing character depth, a complex back story, seemingly endless questing, great graphics, voice acting, and for most people - fun. But it's also known for something else: DLC. Even in the core game, there are offers made to players (from within the game) to buy new downloaded content.
Excerpt: By now, fans of BioWare’s output will know what to expect: a big world-saving plot, deep and colourful characterisations, perfidious political schemes, menu-driven combat and even some slightly awkward sex scenes. For all its parts, Dragon Age: Origins is very much a product of BioWare’s previous output, featuring the same aspects which have typified their games over the past fifteen years.
Review: Dragon Age Origins- The Golems of Amgarrak (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
18 August 2010
Conclusion: There are some neat characters you can control such as a Runic Golem and Snug the Bronto (a sort of horse-rhino hybrid), but these characters really do not give enough incentive to play through this obviously lacking DLC. It really is a shame considering how polished and fresh Leliana’s Song and to be administered to this type of unusual addition to the Dragon Age name.
Review: Dragon Age Origins- Leliana’s Song (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
22 July 2010
Conclusion: When all is said and done, Leliana’s Song is an admirable addition to the Dragon Age: Origins storyline, but with only three hours of content there really is nothing here to write home about. Fans of the game that are looking to gain some back-story on one of the game’s main characters should definitely check it out as it offers insight to some of the dialogue and story segments mentioned during Origins.
Excerpt: Ah, Dragon Age: Origins , the latest-and-greatest, highly anticipated role playing game from Bioware, is on the shelf, available for twitchy-fingered gamers in-the-know and looking for a medieval adventure with the grand scale of Bioware's Mass Effect . I have played Origins and I can happily report that it is everything gamers have been hoping it would be... or at least, it is for the most part.
Excerpt: Dragon Age Origins is a display of Bioware's prowess that started in another age. Multiple endings, a myriad of beginnings, countless ways to play a single class, and much more did not provide players by playing through numerous times. It demanded that you play the game in other ways. But time has passed and the small DLC unleashed online has been done to death. Now we have a full expansion pack, Dragon Age Origins: Awakening.
Conclusion: Dragon Age: Origins is a well-crafted role-playing game for the consoles. The storyline is among the best for this generation making Dragon Age: Origins a must-have RPG. Once gamers meet Shale, the “Stone Prisoner” from the downloadable content, they’ll soon realize how addicting it can be to hold conversations with the characters from the world.
