    Ruined

    Complete letdown. I purchased DAO on the 360 and enjoyed it. After seeing the higher reviews for the PC version I decided to get DA2 for the PC. What a waste!! This game feels like a child's version of what a RPG should ... Read Full Review

    Not as fun as its predecessor, still a lot of fun.

    When first thinking about buying this game I was hesitant at first. I was new to Dragon Age and had recently bought the first game, which was a blast to play and had a great story. I heard many reviews saying it was not... Read Full Review

    A good game by itself, colorful and fast.

    Unlike the previous game in the series, this game has notable goods and bads. But since BioWare wanted to make a very different game from the first and tried out new things to make this title more accessible for all sor... Read Full Review

    Disappointing in execution, but still a worthy sequel

    There's a large difference between DA:O and DA2 in almost every aspect, ranging from combat to expansion on player choice to graphical improvement. What the game does right is it's expansion on the story. You have the... Read Full Review

    Linear but worth the time

    I really enjoy how Dragon Age 2 starts you out as an almost all-powerful version of your character then brings you back down to reality when you lose most of those cool abilities. It gives you a nice glance into the fu... Read Full Review

    Dragon Age II: Antagonist Lost

    For readers who've never played through Dragon Age: Origins, I can summarize that game as being a wonderful romp through a dark fantasy world where your choices shape the epic story of a heroic main character vs. the fo... Read Full Review

    Under the Flaws is a Fun Game

    I'd like to begin by pointing out that I LOVED the first game. It reminded me of the type of RPG I used to like to curl up with as a kid. At the same time, I felt like part of this nostalgia involved archaic conventions ... Read Full Review

    Dragon Age II's archaic, and all-around vanilla, experience doesn't do the series justice.

    BioWare have crafted a game that lets you truly roleplay a character as you see fit.

    I played Dragon Age II on a whim, when so many people actively hate a game it's difficult to expect it to be any good. After playing Dragon Age II I can now safely say all of those people are insane. Dragon Age II is a... Read Full Review
