Summary: Don't bother getting the signature edition. All of the codes for the additional stuff have been used. You're basically paying $15 extra for a different cover art. I thought I would be buying a new game, not a used 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.
Summary: This game is a sad excuse for an RPG. Dumbed down from its predecessor, 2's story line is boring beyond redemption. Only the last 10 minutes of the game have any relevance in the overarching universe. Personalization in the game is a poultry fraction of what it was in Origins.
Summary: Absolutley loved Origins so I got this with high expectations. Was very disappointed. The story background sucked and I don't know what they were thinking when they changed the characters apearance, but the elves went from lovely to freaky and you can only play a human, no choice.
Summary: I suppose it is an average game, but don't go looking for an RPG, or a game that is like Dragon Age Origins. It is much more of a 'cinematic' experience (like you are watching a movie) than an RPG.
Summary: I absolutely loved the first Dragon Age, being a huge fan of both fantasy RPGs and Bioware games. This, however, fell short of almost ALL my expectations. Unlike Mass Effect, the choices made in the first game don't influence hardly anything important.
Summary: This is all very subjective, but I utterly loved Dragon Age Origins and Awakening. The story was very compelling, the romances were hot, the NPC's were believable (mostly)... everything that Dragon Age 2 was not. I played through DAO perhaps 4-5 times, DA2 just twice, before I got bored with it.
Has the Same Name as the First Dragon Age Game, But None of the Fun

Summary: I was very disappointed with this game. I was expecting changes from the first game yes... But Bioware seemed to think taking everything that was fun from the first game, and throwing it out the window was a good idea.
