High expectations... shattered.

  • Summary: I had such high hopes for this game. What with the high user ratings and other high ratings and scores and awards this game has received. However, this game will probably go back the next day as it is absolutely terrible. the graphics are PS One at best! But, I have to remember that Bioware put this game out, and they have not been known for their great animation or graphics, just storylines. Really people? You all really think this game deserves a 10?

Acceptable but don't get your hopes up.

  • Summary: I was pretty skeptical about this game when I bought it. It seemed stupid but since it wad from bioware I thought it deserved a chance. Let me just say, its no baldurs gate. The game play is very similar but probably the best part of baldurs gate was that it was co-op. Its so much more exciting to be able to pay with a friend. I felt that the lack of co-op really took away from the game. Other than that, the story was kind of typical (but not necessarily horrible).

Pretty disappointing…

  • Summary: Dragon Age: Origins…it really disappoints me. The reason for this is that the RPG did not live to the expectations that have been circling around in the media. Unfortunately the endless conversations of the characters and the bad graphics was really the things that sink the ship for me in this game. Hopefully they will learn from these 2 small mistakes and come up with a better and stronger sequel of the game as the story and gameplay are really good.

  • Summary: this game is filled with great ideas, the choice of species and character creation at the beginning of the game is really good and it seems like the storyline would be incredibly gripping, the problem is; i only got to a very early point in the game before i finally gave up, it probably would have just been better if this game was made as a movie so i could watch it all the way through without the one setback; the most important thing needed in a game; gameplay...

  • Summary: After watching the advertising campaign for this game, I believed the hype sooooo much. I bugged relatives to get it for me as a birthday present and I was so chuffed when I opened that wrapping paper. I then turned on my console, my mouth going dry with anticipation as I pressed the close draw button and fired that baby up. The opening to the game was so incredible, at the gates of the kingdom of Ferelden an army of Darkspawn masses.

Not my thing

  • Summary: After playing brilliant games like Oblivion, Fallout 3 and New Vegas and Mass Effect 1 and 2, this supposed RPG is not my thing whatsoever; the combat is terrible, you simply press the button and watch as your character fights without any other imput, that for me was incredibly off putting and very boring.

Boring game that feels old

  • Summary: Slow, glitches all over the place, combat is cumbersome and rather dull, sound is average at best, bad animation and awfully bland graphics. Almost PS1 looking!. Combat is repetitive due to the mechanics driving the combat engine lack balance itself, and with NPCs having hardly any decent or average AI. The game spends way to much time on dialogue decisions which is fine for the first couple of hours, but does tend to drag and drag all far too often.

Be warned

  • Summary: I thought I bring this up. The 1st disk works fine how ever many people also on Biowares (the developers of the tittle) forum have had problem with installing the 2nd disk as it is required to get the extra content such as the DLC (Down loadable Content). Most notable with the new 360 slims and elites prompting people to install a hard drive to download the contents of the disk when one is already attached.

Probably a great game, but...

  • Summary: ...I bought a latest generation XBox 360 (it came out on 12th July 2010) and bought this game at the same time because I'd read so many wonderful things about it. On the day I got the console I played the game for an hour or so. The next evening the console installed and update and... (HORROR OF HORROR'S!!!), the game completely freezes up.

Save Glitched. Check Forums Before You Buy

  • Summary: Brought this game a few days ago and if your a fan of RPGs then you'll love this, the game itself is superb, however (and the main reason i write this review) i warn you that there is a major Glitch with this game which damages the games save file. So far i'd played the game for 9 hrs when i saved and switched off, only to return and find that the save file was damaged. This has happened numberous time.
