Better than the First
on July 27, 2014 at 03:53 AM
No, really. Let's take the unpopular opinion, shall we? I think the most effective way to do this is to compare Dragon Age 2 to its predecessor. And yeah, I'm sure many of you aren't gonna like this. Let's start with the common criticisms: 1.) Level Design: Critics complain that Bioware...
Dragon Age II: Back to the Minors
on March 18, 2012 at 07:36 AM
(Yeah, that's right....I'm holding a ball of fire in my hand) Dragon Age II is an odd game. It sets aside many longstanding RPG conventions and replaces them with...well...nothing really. After finishing the game roughly two weeks ago I couldn't help but wonder what exactly BioWare was trying...
Epic potential ends in disappointment
on October 22, 2011 at 04:57 PM
There are few things as disappointing as seeing a really good looking dessert then taking a bite, and it does not taste bad but mediocre. This is the way DA2 left me. It looked really good on several points when I originally saw it, but it did not deliver the results expected. As far as pluses there...
A medievil adventure like none I have played before
on September 17, 2011 at 08:32 PM
When I was at my local Blockbuster trying to rent Dead Island I came across the game that was (hopefully) going to hold me over until the copy was returned. Having the played the demo for this game I didn't really expect to enjoy it to much but to be honest as the game begin I was...intrigued. The...
More action, less rpg.
on August 30, 2011 at 12:55 PM
Dragon Age 2 is easily more comfortable for the console than Origins. The button mashing is more engaging than auto attack(especially how ranged fighters will alter their attacks when confronted at close range), but at the same time, it feels less tactical than Origins. If you want a decent healer in...
A solid game overshadowed by it's predecessor.

When Dragon Age:Origins hit the store shelves, many gamers praised it for it's intuitive combat,intriguing story which was shaped by your race and origin (hence the subname), among many other things. Almost 2 years after that Dragon Age 2 hit the store shelves, and while it's still a solid game...
One of the best pure RPG franchises in recent memory becomes a decent action RPG with an interesting story for a western RPG.
on July 15, 2011 at 01:31 PM
Dragon age Origins was one of the best RPGs of the decade so the hopes were high for Dragon age 2,I am saddened to report that it does not live up to the original game,however the gameplay failings are made up for by some cool story moments in the final 2 chapters. The very first thing that will strike...
Very Well Done

I just recently obtained this game and haven't been able to stop playing it since. I thought the first one was outstanding and so far number 2 seems to be right on track. Both are extraordinary games in my opinion. Wish me luck.
Dragon Age: A completely different game and story
on April 18, 2011 at 10:48 PM
A good game in its own right, the story in the sequel is sub par. The most disappointing thing in Dragon Age 2 is that it has nothing to do with the first. It is a completely different story. It really should not be considered dragon age 2. Dragon Age: Origins and the DLC that went with it left quite...
A Great Sequel
on April 09, 2011 at 01:39 AM
in my opinion dragon age: origins was one of the most epic games of 2009,and it seems like Bioware to give the public something that they never had in origins...a more in depth experience. Dragon Age 2 does just that, with a story that brings you more in depth with your Character as well as companions...
Dragon Age 2 - Game Review
on April 05, 2011 at 03:53 PM
The last couple of days, I've gone over what I consider the first 2 entries to the series, though I suppose Awakening could be seen as Dragon Age 1.5. There was a lot to like about the Origins games, and I will admit I was both excited and a bit concerned when I heard Dragon Age 2 would be coming...
on April 04, 2011 at 01:39 PM
This may have a lot to do with the fact that I did not let my inner fangirl pass any judgement on this game until I beat it but I loved it. Dragon Age 2, which would be more aptly named Dragon Age: Champion of Kirkwall, is not meant to be a direct continuation of Origins but a foundation for where the...
A solid sequel marred by technical difficulties....
on April 03, 2011 at 07:38 PM
Being a big fan of both Bioware and Dragon Age: Origins/Awakening, naturally I was excited when I heard there was a sequel in the works and, having now played through said sequel, I am left with a sort of bittersweet taste in my mouth. As far as graphics and sound are concerned, the game is a masterpiece...
Dragon Age II, opening the door for the year of epic RPG's
on April 03, 2011 at 08:26 AM
What with Mass effect 3, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Hunted: Demons Forge, RAGE and Dead Island all coming out this annum, you could be forgiven for thinking that Dragon Age could be a footnote in this years line-up. Fortunately this is not so... I picked up the Signature Edition of the game which contained...
Dragon Age 2 in 4500 words or less... >_<
on April 02, 2011 at 12:57 AM
By the time I finished the introductory section of Dragon Age 2 (a.k.a. DA2), I was cursing Bioware's name for pulling a bait-and-switch. There's no denying that this instalment has a very different feel from Dragon Age: Origins (a.k.a. DAO). However I finally got through my rage-stroke, and...
A bit rushed, but still a great game.
on April 01, 2011 at 09:40 PM
I thought the game was really good. It wasn't quite up to par with DAO, but I definitely don't feel that it deserves the criticism some fans are giving it. Overall, I enjoyed the story. It wasn't totally fractured. I thought there were plenty enough hints laid out to see what focus the ending...
Wanting to be a Champion
on March 31, 2011 at 08:18 PM
I was late to the Dragon Age party, but boy am I glad I attended. The first game had all the great story elements I'd come to expect from a Bioware game. With memorable characters, amazing dialogue, and plenty to see and explore, it was like being immersed in a good book. With the second one, I never...
Doesn't it feel like everything has been dumbed down? Everything from eating to combat?

A horrible sequel

As an avid fan of the original Dragon Age Origin i am conpletely ashamed to have bought and even played this game. i have beaten DA:O countless times i felt underly ashamed this game is as my have told a friend "this game is the body of a Dragon Age game with everything DA removed execpt story and...
