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 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. The graphics are solid and an improvement upon the first entry. The voice work is also good (though I find DA:O still superior) as is the music. That is where the game succeeds, it fails elsewhere.
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. Still worth a look for fans of the first game, even if it's just to keep in touch while waiting for the third game.
Summary: Alright so in a nut shell, the story was extremely boring. I think this was the greatest downfall in the game. I wont give away any spoilers but overall, this was painful compared to the first one. The first one you were saving the world from the blight. This one you deal with political issues to save a city. It actually is as boring as it sounds......The combat was a little bit more interactive, as long as you dont mind hitting the "A" button fifty times in a fight.
Summary: It's a fun game, but there are some flaws; getting hit by spells or arrows when you're in a different room with walls or pillars between you and the enemy, yet you have to not only be in visual contact, but within a certain distance for any of your attacks to do any good, it's a little frustrating. The graphics are great, in terms of the environment and facial features/recognition.
