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.
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.
Summary: I loved Dragon Age: Origins. I beat it with three characters and completed all the DLC. I was beyond excited for Dragon Age II when it was announaced. Unfortunately it did not live up to the hype or my expectations. Dragon Age II looks good.
Summary: Really liked the first game, but was surprised to find how far this game strayed from that more 'old school' formula. Have to admit that combat was fun, especially when my dual wielding berzerker speed class really got rolling.
Summary: I will start this out saying I am biased in that I play pnp RPGs and thought DA:O and awakening was quite good. The RPG experience for DA2 simply does not exist very much. You stay in the same area throughout the whole game and when you go on quests you explore the same areas and the only thing that...
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.
