Summary: This game has gotten some flack and rightfully so i mean with a game like dragon age origins (which i personally regard as one of the best games of all time) you have alot to live up to. sadly it doesnt. Now dont get me wrong this game isnt horrible ive played alot worse games. its just dissapointing. Maybe its the 28 hours of Origins talking but this ones story was alot weaker than origins and some of the companions were just not likeable.
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.
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: Who needs choices, right? Forget that garbage. Choice of race? Nope. Choice of party equipment? Nope. Variety of setting? Nope. Choices affect what goes on in the game? Not really. You're stuck doing the same missions on the same maps over and over again. The combat is simplified from the first one. The party handling is simplified. The plot is...nonexistent. Oh, and when I say "simplified" I mean "dumb downed.
Summary: I was, and still, a huge fan of the original Dragon Age and I agree with others who have said that this game is nowhere near as excellent as its predecessor. However, when judged on its own the game is very entertaining. The fighting system is somewhat of an improvement and the main character's being able to talk is a plus. I have replayed the game many times and have enjoyed it. It is too short and your decisions have little effect on the outcome.
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: The only part of this game that is slightly fun is the beginning. The fighting is lame all you do is push the A button to attack. The only powerful attacks take way to long cool down to use again. And if you play on normal the enemies are way to hard to kill but if its on easy your team will just kill them before you even have a chance to get over to them. And forget trying to play without a team you can't even handle the weakest enimies if there are more than five.
