Summary: The game has a more streamlined RPG element to it, than an immersive RPG element. They recycled a bunch of the same environments, which made the game seem highly repetitive. The characters, however, were great; and I'd say that the increased speed of combat was a pleasant addition to 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: ... 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: DA:O was the masterpiece. lets place that game on the scale of 1-10 at a firm 10 DA:2 falls on the dragon age awesome scale at a weak 5 As much as I loved DA:O I was equally bummed at the complete LACK of DA:2 It was as if the writers and designers and crew got lazy. Repeated areas over and over, tight fighting spaces, washed out color pallet, and lack of great voice acting that was in DA:O Even the companion/romance options were badly done IMO In DA;O you got to woo...
Summary: I waited for this game to be discounted before purchasing it based on the reviews here and on other websites. I'm glad I did as this game wasn't worth the $59 it originally came out as. But at $20, it was exactly the right amount. I played the first Dragon Age and loved it but found it a bit complex for my tastes.
Summary: Dragon Age puts you back in the lands of the first game, sadly that's where the majority of the involvement of the first stops. You will be playing the character of the Champion, reliving the moments that gained you that title. You will have to face a threatening force and factions that unchecked could destroy the fragile balance of the city. Graphically almost the entire game is an upgrade to the first, something that everyone hoped for and expected.
Summary: I absolutely loved DA: Origins. I probably played it through about a dozen times. I like DA II but I can't say I loved it. I'll start with the good... They give the hero a voice. I played as a female and whoever did her voice was very good. I didn't mind that this story doesn't have much connection to the first game. I thought the whole refugee from Lothering was an interesting concept.
Summary: So i played DAO and Awakenings and Witch Hunt and i played it on PC. switched to xbox for DA2, and was disappointed. certainly not a bad game, but not a very good one either. combat is much more button-mashy (hit A until your target is dead). On hard you have to play the run like hell game from some boss level characters (one particular fight has 2 very tough SOB revenants that will kill you so fast if you engage both at the same time). The world is not that smooth.
