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: If you were unsure if the acquisition of bioware by EA would affect the quality of game they put out, here's your answer. I have played bioware games since KOTOR and have yet to see them put out a such a steaming, bug filled pile as this.
Summary: I've read a lot of the reviews on this site and I'm surprised by the venom with which some people approach their reviews or the reviews of others. I'm not sure why people feel the desperate need to be so critical of each other when the game is supposed to be the primary focus.
Summary: I don't typically give bad reviews, but I feel the need to warn others who might be considering purchasing this game. It's not worth it. Don't buy it. This game is broken - not just bad - it's physically broken and unplayable.
Summary: Wow, that's honestly how I feel, it's that bad. I have completed the game, with about 85% of the achievements, took me 30 hours max and I consider myself a tinkerer. I did almost every side mission, read through the story choices. Cons you ask? Worst offense?
Summary: I knew minutes into the demo for this game that it was bound to be terrible, boring, and watered-down. My wife, however, in desperation to play an RPG (note the lack of RPGs out there right now), bought it and proceeded to play.
They turned one of the best RPG's of all time into a button masher

Summary: What is there to say? They used to have a fantastic RPG, and decided they wanted to make a 3rd person button masher combat game. That's fine, but it shouldn't have been released under the Dragon Age IP. Very disappointed to have purchased this, and found it to be just an action game.
Summary: After more than 40 hours of playing, I'm now unable to complete the game thanks to a known (and widespread) game breaking bug that slows down the main character to the point that he's completely worthless in battles.
Summary: I loved the earlier DA games and expected the same would be true of DA2. Not so fast Skippy. I could have sucked it up and overlooked many of the issues mentioned by other reviewers just for the experience of being back in the DA world.
Summary: Dragon Age: Origins was never a perfect game; but it had character, which is of epic import for any RPG game. DA2 is nothing like the original and only bears similarity in name and basic storyline.
