Summary: I'd give it a 3.5 star rating if I could. I'm used to playing RPG's for a while (100+ hours) before getting tired of the play style. This did not quite make it. There was nothing exceptional about Dragon Age. If you like RPGs it's different. Friends like the game, it's just not my cup of tea.
Summary: I have mentioned the issue with some of these games in the past but it is really evident in the Dragon age series. If you aren't playing as a Rogue you will not have a good time. All magic builds just get nerfed early in the game so it can make for a very rocky journey. Balance people balance.
Summary: This game was a bit of a disappointment. I loved Mass Effect and was looking forward to a new Bio Ware game that was supposed to be as good. The downloadable expansion was substandard at best, though, and the animations and names of some talents were horrible and misleading. It also had some major bugs that took away from its overall quality.
Game works fine, did not recieve Blood Dragon armor code
27 December 2012
Summary: The game disc and dlc install disc seem to work fine, but I am a little disappointed that there was not a Blood Dragon armor code included with the game. Supposedly with new copies of the game, there should be a card with the code to redeem the Blood Dragon armor for Mass Effect 2. I tried talking to EA, but they can't help and all I'm able to do for now is get a refund. At this rate, time will run out and I will be unable to get a replacement.
DO NOT BUY THE EXPANSION PACK IF YOU HAVE A 4GB XB

Summary: OX (unless you have the right specific hard drive to go with it), this game only runs if you buy a specific hard drive. No, USB drives will not work for it. You will have to go spend 70-80 bucks just to play the game. Just buy it for the computer, or buy origins, and download the expansion pack from the xbox.. DO NOT PURCHASE THE EXPANSION PACK FOR THE XBOX 360 IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT HARD DRIVE. Google it and see for yourself.
Summary: Dragon Age: Origins is a fantasy strategy role-playing game made by Bioware, the creators of the sci-fi epic RPG game, Mass Effect. The main story is about your character becoming a Grey Warden, one of the last of a legendary order of the guardians(Similar to the Spectres from Mass Effect). With the return of an ancient foe and the kingdom engulfed in a civil war, you have been summoned by fate to unite the lands and eliminate the threat.
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.
Summary: Bioware has made many potentially great games only to fail ultimately due to sterile worlds, flat characters and boring stories. I enjoyed Knights of the Old Republic the most, probably due to the Star Wars theme and healthy injection of humor. I didn't expect much from Dragon's Age and that's what I got. Not only is it a tedious play, but the mechanics of combat and other systems in the game are unintuitive and never explained in either the manual or in-game tutorials.
