Not for some people.

James Wolff, Amazon

  • Summary: Not the game I was hoping for, or was hyped up to be. I'm the kind of gamer that has to enjoy the battle system of an RPG. It has to be smooth, interactive, comfortable, and satisfying (in terms of knowing you're doing damage to the enemy). And this definitely does not meet up with expectations. You press an attack button once, and your character goes to fight automatically. The battling feels exactly like playing Starcraft or Warcraft III, to give you an idea.

Some very good, some very bad parts.

  • Summary: First off, probably the only RPG I've played where I didn't want to viciously murder at least one of my companions by the end of the game (I'm talking about you, Neeshka and Qara of Neverwinter Nights 2). Every character has a great personality, and your companions will engage one another in (often hilarious) dialogue. The graphics look great, and there is a good sense of the benefits and shortcomings of each weapon style and type.

Good game but not nearly as good as the PC version.

  • Summary: Bioware has created a great world and great story in usual Bioware fashion. I won't go into detail regarding the game itself because 1)I truly do love this game so far 2)my main focus is on the technical differences between the X360 version and the PC. I got this game for the 360 because of my love for everything Bioware.

dont waste your time

  • Summary: This game is a epic rpg, but for once im saying they tried to make it to epic, everything in the story is either darkspawn or deamons that take over it and you need to save it of course. They put you into fights which are totally bull, its your 4 guys vers 20 other guys and its almost impossible to win. they say you have to use strategy to win but there is barely any!

Not as great as it's being hyped...

Leave it if you don't love it, Amazon
23 December 2009
  • Summary: I've completed this game and would like to point out a few things that others have not. 1. You cannot farm for equipment or xp because enemys do not respawn. After you complete a main quest area you often cannot return. If you don't do every little side quest you cannot max out your character which again does not give you the option of leveling by actually killing creatures. 2. Money is a real pain to come by.

Product Review - Collector's Edition

Ellen, Amazon
16 December 2009
  • Summary: I paid the additional $ because the product description said it included the "Stone Prisoner". I have satellite internet and no bandwidth to waste for DLC. But there's no "Stone Prisoner". Only a code so you CAN download it. As for the game- was it William Shakespeare who said, "There is nothing new under the sun."? While I'm not disappointed, and I have enjoyed previous Bio Ware games; it's just old hat. I recommend the regular edition - not the CE.

not that great

twiztidtwin , GameStop
24 November 2009
  • Summary: this game looks really sweet but once you start playing it it is nothing like the trailers. The mages do not withstand magic, the warrior just stands there when hes suppose to fight. you can choose to have the other characters follow you were ever you go, but they do not help in a battle they just stand there attacking nothing. The challege is ok and it could be better. i would rate it a 6 out of 10 not even close to an 8 of 10.

Slain by Dragon Age (updated)

M. DiSpirito "mentored1", Amazon
23 November 2009
  • Summary: Welcome, ye adventurers! Dragon Age is out of control fantastic. If you've enjoyed Bioware's previous games, and you like fantasy role-playing games in general, then Dragon Age is a no-brainer. Here are some key points and highlights: -- Gameplay -- Bioware uses many familiar elements, some taken from various games, to create a strong and flavorful interface for the game.

Good gameplay, immersion breaking conversations

Holger Danske, amazon.co.uk
30 November 2011
  • Summary: It's a good game with a great storyline, the combat is good too, but there is a problem in conversations. There are many of them, but that's not it. Your character isn't voiced. Other than that it's awesome.
