Summary: the game is ok its nice that your character uses dialogue when answering but the game could be better my disk wants to keep freezing so I can only play it 30 minutes at a time so I'm not far at all in the game.
Summary: This game is fun to play. I beat it with no problems. Currently working on playing it through a second time. It gets repetitive. The game had a limited variety of enemies to kill. Most of the quest maps are the same.
Summary: I am a big fan of Bioware and ADORED Dragon Age: Origins. This game is definitely worth playing and owning. The game itself had some major overhauls from the first, not all positive. The combat system is more user friendly, and I enjoyed many of the changes. The healing change was a bit of a pain, the cool downs were crazy! The upside to that was most fights could be managed with no healer whatsoever. The environment is different, not as open as the first.
Summary: I read a lot of negative reviews about DA2 on forums, especially when compared to DA:Origins so I was hesitant to buy this as I am a huge fan of DA:Origins (best RPG!). Some of the complaints are very valid such as: many re-used maps, waves of enemies appearing from rooftops, silly over-the-top fighting animations.
Summary: This game to me was a bit different than the first one but I found it very enjoyable. The new skill features I think is better than the old one. The thing that I did not like at first I started liking late in the game. Your companions come with their own armor and weapons. Now you can equip a weapon, and jewelry on them but not armor. During each chapter you can find armor upgrades for each of your companions.
Summary: I enjoyed this game. I spent 70+ hours on the first play-through and I am in the second round. It is a fun game, but it can be better. There are hits and misses: The hits are definitely the graphics, the combat system, and the dialog wheel. The graphics are gorgeous. Battles are spectacular, especially if one plays Hawke as a mage. If a player wants to experience combat as a warrior or rogue, he/she can easily switch control from Hawke to his/her other companions.
Summary: A notable sequel to the highly acclaimed original Dragon Age Origins. The sequel does not have the epic quality of the first or the variety but it has more options and deals mostly with party tactics than equipment. Also the dlc is glitched (achievements don't pop) and the game itself has glitches that are frustrating. Kinda of like an expanded Dragon Age Awakening with more story and options.
The Same... Yet Different - And More Action Packed!

Summary: I was a huge fan of Dragon Age: Origins and played through it several times so I have been excited for Dragon Age 2. As soon as the first battle started I could feel that the game was a lot different than its predecessor. The fighting was a lot more hack n' slash, making battles a lot faster and a bit more forgiving (well, not the boss battles). The characters models as well as Kirkwall are rendered beautifully, and you can see that upgrades that have gone into the game.
Summary: It came earlier than expected which was nice Now onto the game itself: It has great Graphics An interesting and engaging story And the combat mechanics and animation has been massively improved which is very good
