Good story, but gameplay is repetative and unfufilling.

S. C., Amazon

  • 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.

Bioware?

  • Summary: Wow! What happened, Bioware? The combat is nothing more than button mashing. The character development is childish. The story is same ole, same ole.

Narrow, very narrow.

  • 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. The characters have better development. The gameplay is more console friendly, but the scope of the "main character" and his/her story is too tiny to be of lasting importance.

Not that great

  • 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. You are stuck in one city with dull cut and paste scenery and repetative dungeons. Will definately rent DA3 first when it comes out, won't buy if its anything like this one.

Bioware's Bastard Stepchild

  • Summary: Could not get into the story and the outerworld map always felt like you're walking thru a series of trenches. Not my type of game, traded it in for rental credit at my local video store.

Just not very good

  • 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. Choices, Inventory, equipping your party, pretty much any thing that makes a computer RPG a RPG game is removed or made so bland that there is not much fun to be had.

It left this Dragon Age fan disappointed.

Penny Gname, Amazon

  • 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. The story line, for me, wasn't believable. I was disappointed with what Anders had become. The romances were rather half-buttocks'd compared to DAO. And, Maker's breath!

So very disappointing

  • Summary: Honestly, this game lets down in just about every way possible. The story (is there one?) is not focused. You really have no idea who the antagonist is until the final fight. The side quests are boring. The re-use of dungeons and areas is sorely abused. If you feel like playing some dragon age, do yourself a favor and pick up - replay or otherwise - Dragon Age: Origins. You'll be glad you did. Dragon Age 2 was a big letdown.

Not as good as the original

D. Jakubek "Scruff", Amazon

  • Summary: Let me first say I own Dragon Age: Origins on the 360 and LOVE IT! This game however is Ok but doesnt offer the flare that Dragon Are: origins offered. Immediatly when you start to play teh game you keep asking yourself, man this game is different in a weird way. I ended up buying Dragon Age: origins Ultimate Edition on Steam and playing it again and running through the premium content. Sadly Dragon Age II is gathering dust.

Dragon Age II - Not Bad, Not Great, Just Disappointing

A Mature and Distinguished Gentleman, Amazon
24 April 2011
  • Summary: Dragon Age: Origins showed a lot of potential. I don't hold it up as some amazing game that'll be remembered for years to come, but I do think it was solid and enjoyable enough to warrant my interest in the franchise. So I waited impatiently for Dragon Age II. I waited to see if all of the issues with the first game were sent to die. Sadly, the issues with the first game returned, in addition to more issues, as well.
