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 bought this game on release, played through about 75% of it, then put it away and forgot about it till recently. It is a game with generic go there, kill this, advance boring story type of writing. The game revolves around one location that is not interesting. The worst thing about this game is the dungeons though. Every dungeon seems to be recycled and reused over and over. This game was just a very poorly done project that was made by very lazy game makers.
Summary: Bioware had a chance to have a good franchise game with dragonage. Then they made this worthless piece of garbage to steal peoples money, paid gamer sites for good reviews and we got screwed. WORST game ever made, destroyed a good name. Cannot carry over character from the first 2, just run around a damn city talkin,talkin and more talkin to do ignorant little side misions that aren't fun at all.
Summary: I played the demo for Dragon Age 2, and was genuinely excited for the installment. The first game was a bit restrictive, as far as options on where to go and what to do, but that's to be expected in certain RPGs. DA2 took these restrictions to the extreme. Other than a few exceptions, you're restricted to one city, and the game plays over the span of a few years. This screams "shortcut".
Summary: when i bought this game i thought it would be as good as the last one but when i started to play it i saw it was nothing like the first one you had no cool people to play as the story was short and boring i beat it in about 2 days and considering that the last one took me about 3 to 4 weeks to beat without doing many side quests i was just dissapointed at how terrible the game was so i would not reccomend buying it to any of my friends
Summary: I've enjoyed playing Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 in general. But there is a serious and frequently-occurring bug in Dragon Age 2, that despite being known to the manufacturer for a year, has not been corrected! Google "Dragon Age 2 Wayward Son bug" and you'll see what I'm talking about. It's a minor quest that is part of the main story line about 1/3 of the way through the game, and half of the time it *cannot be completed*. You need some item that isn't there.
Summary: At one time BioWare was a name you could trust within the gaming community but since joining forces with EA it has been one disaster after another. As is the new BioWare norm Dragon Age 2 is unimaginative, repetitive and lazy. The sense of adventure and exploration is completely gone instead opting for a few locations repeated over and over and over again. Even at the low price of $19.99 you are paying too much.
Game rushed out the Door, re-used levels over and over and over and over and over and over

Summary: Game was rushed out the door so they re-use the levels over and over. This is a money grab by using the Dragon age name, not a true sequel to the original game. True Dragon AGE fans stay away.
Summary: A complete departure from everything good about Dragon Age 1, rather than rant I'll simply summarize; boring and uninteresting main character (y'know, due to the fact that you can only be human follow the same stupid story no matter what class you pick, which brings me to my second point), completely boring and unengaging storyline that in no way gives me a sense of urgency or obligation to complete it, uninteresting companion characters (In comparison to Dragon Age 1),...
Summary: You'll read better reviews than this one. Others have gone into greater depth and taken more time. I want to explain briefly why I am giving this a 2/5, however. The one word to summarize this game: BORING. I bought this a few days ago. There's a reason, I now know, that a 10 month old game is selling for only $20 at a local big box. I hear DA: Origins was great. I never played that.
