    Dragon age 2

    dragon age 2 was alright...didn't match up to DA1, I like how they try to get the story to come together, how your actions in DA1 would affect you in DA2 like mass effect, but one of the main things i'm ticked off about ... Read Full Review

    One of the best I've played.

    Although slightly diffeent than the original, I played them within a month of each other and ultimately, this is the slightly better game. Bad: 1. Story does lack a singular 'purpose' in the beginning. To me this is ... Read Full Review

    Dragon Age 2 is simply terrible. Story, characters, world, gameplay all suck. How did they drop the ball so hard?

    rnI loved Dragon Age Origins. Dragon Age 2 is very different from it, almost only in bad ways. Storywise DA2 is very loosely connected with the original. Warden is barely mentioned just like everything else, though there... Read Full Review

    Dragon Age II is a victim of the original's success.

    First off, let me say this is a decent RPG. But compared to DA:Origins, this game is a huge disappointment. I don't think they ever had a serious chance at making it better than the first, but they took several huge s... Read Full Review

    No reason to hate this game!

    So there are not many games I have played through twice. DAO on the PC and xbox and DAII on the PC and xbox. I loved them on both systems. I did try it on the PS3 but it loaded so slow i felt like breaking my machine ( ... Read Full Review

    This isn't the game you are looking for

    After the success of Dragon Age Origins a sequel was mandatory, unfortunately besides the name it has very few things in common with the original. The good: - voiced player - different ways to personalize your chara... Read Full Review

    Surprisingly good

    The game starts with you being the character Hawke, running from the Blight from the first game. You and your family have to flee to Kirkwall and try to start a new life there. The Negative: the new leveling system is ... Read Full Review

    The foundations of a great RPG are here but the story and locations mean that the game doesn't reach its full potential.

    Personally, I found Dragon Age to be very overrated on the Xbox 360. The graphics were very dull, and the combat seemed a bit fiddly and frustrating and is most likely far better on the PC version. The changes made to th... Read Full Review

    More cowbell

    The second installment in the Dragon Age series at first glance seemed a disappointment. Most people that fell in love with the first game were shocked that the game didn't carry on the story-line (directly anyways) fro... Read Full Review

    Great role-playing game but Dragon Age: Origins is better!!

    Dragon Age II is a great role-playing but there are ALOT of new changes that actually hurt the game more then help it. I'm assuming you've played Dragon Age: Origins because I'm going to be doing alot of comparisons. O... Read Full Review
