Another good RPG from Bioware with the typical Bioware RPGameplay features.Interesting and emotional sidestories make up for it's cliche main plot.

Summary: Dragon Age Origins is another great RPG from Bioware. It's story has a few emotional and interesting moments but it's main plot revolves around cliches that I've seen in other fantasy stories.It's story is set in a medieval age and creatures known as 'darkspawn' begin showing up and swarm the world and want to kill everything in their path.The times throughout history when the darkspawn show up is refered to as a 'blight' and obviously another blight is occuring.Special...
The journey is fun, but you might feel disappointed once you beat it.

Summary: After spending 30-50 hours on this game, you might feel disappointed once you beat it. Story, Graphics and Gameplay: This is what was most fun about the game. Every interaction you made with NPC's were recorded dialog. No reading text on the screen. There are many different character paths you could take and experience, all with slightly different stories and dialog. You will notice that it steals from every RPG you can think of. LotR, Oblivion, WoW, everything.
Summary: I actually bought this game from the PlayStation Store instead of getting it from GameStop. I still remember the first time I played it; it was a crystal clear Friday morning, which was my only day off work other than Sunday. I started playing at around 7 AM and didn't stop until about 18 hours later. I remember thinking that I wouldn't be suprised if I managed to go a full 24 hours without stopping.
Summary: I played it on the Xbox 360, and I don't know why people are giving it bad reviews honestly. I'd not say it's the greatest expansion ever, but it's worth it to get it. If you would rather just have the game and all the expansions, get the Ultimate Edition instead, it's even more worth it!
Summary: This game was good, not great, but good. Pros: Great story, in depth-history, fantastic interaction with NPCs, ability to create your own character, and extremely high replay value. Cons: Horrible battle system, terrible inventory management, WAY to much in the way of codexes causing information overload, and easy to get burnt out with all the side-quests going on.
Summary: Choose between Warrior, Mage, and Rogue for your main character and recruit many more to form a 4-man party. There are many characters and playstyles to work with to play the game how you want to. The class balance could use some tweaking, as at high levels of play mages outperform other classes between their high overall damage output and their utility. Controls on the consoles are a bit clunky, and can't be remapped.
Summary: A fun action RPG. I'm about 10 hours into the game and it's proving to be one of the better RPGs on the market. I like the double pack with Awakening included so there are no additional DLC packs to purchase. I give Dragon Age a 4 out of 5, enjoy and happy gaming!
Summary: If your looking for a game that will keep you busy, then this game is for you. I like having the ability to choose what your character says during the game. I strongly suggest buying the strategy guide due to the overwhelming ammount of weapons, magic, potions, characters, enemies, and the game maps can be confusing at times.
