Summary: The game should have the codes associated with a "new" game, which is why we purchased the new game at this price rather than a used one for $20. The new one we purchased did not come with the codes.
Summary: the game is ok its nice that your character uses dialogue when answering but the game could be better my disk wants to keep freezing so I can only play it 30 minutes at a time so I'm not far at all in the game.
Summary: Not as good as the first game. I miss old bioware, the bioware that existed prior to EA. Their games were way more detailed and in depth then and more time was spent on them. I could customize my followers without paying extra too. I never got as absorbed in this as I did in the first game.
Good story, but gameplay is repetative and unfufilling.

Summary: I *loved* the original Dragon Age: Origins (DA:O), and I really wanted to like Dragon Age 2 (DA2). I finished the original DA:O with 4 characters, and I bought every single DA:O DLC. I barely finished DA2. Compared to DA:O, DA2 is sub-par in every respect. Pros: - Good (but not great) story. - Interesting main-character progression over time. Cons: - The art direction significantly changed from DA:O. I guess I got used to it, but it's quite shocking initially.
Summary: The story is absolutely incredible. Sure, the game isn't as open as the first Dragon Age, but holy cow is this is a good story! Combat is fun, story is great, characters are all engaging. Can't recommend this game enough!
Summary: ... and I wanted to like this one. To some extent, I think I did, but there were a few annoyances. First of all, they completely reuse dungeons.... over and over again, it feels like you're going through the same dungeon in a different directions (front to back, back to front, etc.) Additionally, the first one started this great story where you get full customization of your character...
Summary: DA:O was the masterpiece. lets place that game on the scale of 1-10 at a firm 10 DA:2 falls on the dragon age awesome scale at a weak 5 As much as I loved DA:O I was equally bummed at the complete LACK of DA:2 It was as if the writers and designers and crew got lazy. Repeated areas over and over, tight fighting spaces, washed out color pallet, and lack of great voice acting that was in DA:O Even the companion/romance options were badly done IMO In DA;O you got to woo...
