This is not my favorite game but I am willing to go as far as it has the best story in a game that I have ever played.
Not even close to Baldur's Gate or Planescape Torment. Cliché story, and combat is just a thorn and replay value is superficial.
Woah, just started this on ps3 and framerate is...bad. Almost unplayable (certainly not enjoyable). Load screens every time a conversation starts. Is it worth switching to Xbox? Heard frame rate is better.
GREAT game, loved it even at the xbox version! Btw, is it justme or were the reviews ALOT better like it was on this one rather than nowadays?
This?!, this the gameplay purist kept defending?!!!. dragon age 2 has a better gameplay and you can all eat a bag of D*@&$
bought it for the pc when it first came out and now bought the ultimate edition recently for the PS3 since i didn't played all the DLC's when i first got it back then and for a 3yr old game i am still enthralled . DA:O wil always be amoung my favourite rpg's of all time games like that are very few and far between.
I've just started DA:O on my XB360 and he say's that the PS3's verison looks/loads better! Well I have a PS3 but it's one of the originals, you know one of the 60GB backwords/compatible PS3's that one can play PS1/PS2/PS3 games on (and still works perfect) but the bigest problem with it as some may or may not remember is that the damb (fan sound like F16 fighter jet, well more or less anyway lol! Point is it's just too damb noisy/loud to be playing an 100+ hrs. RPG on if you know what I mean. I could just spend around $160 or so to buy a used PS3-"slims" but I think I'm just going to wait for the PS4 to come out! That said IMHO it doesn't look all that bad at all on the XB360 tho. Anyway just a thought, happy gaming all!!!
i really loooooooooooooooove this game ....and im always listen to that camp theme its awesome ..just try to listen to it guys and try to feel it :D
@KingdomForce982 well if you used your map and journal and compass that ointed exactly where you needed to go in oblivion, then yo shold have figured out where to go. And no Dragon Age isn't an open world rpg, you its easy to figure ut where you need to go.
@bosanceanu yes, but is it like Oblivion where you don't know where you need to go next, or rather, how TO GET THERE??
I haven't played this game and don't know much about it but I love the Mass Effect games. If I like those games would I like this or is there no way to compare the games.
okay someone really need to explain this to me. i love rpgs okay. when i brought this i just finished playing demon souls (well over 20 times) and then gave this a go beucase ive seen to much good reviews. can someone explain whats with the combat? and why can you not control the combat. all you do it press a button and the bloke just stand there and swings untill it dies...??? its like a bigger version of a rpg on the iphone. press a butoon swing swing swing die press a button swing swing swing die.. i really rited to get into it but the combat sucks
skyrim is going to OWN every single rpg out there hands down (although mass effect 3 will be a close 2nd) just say'n...
I'll have to go back and play this one again to see if my views of it change, but last time I played it I remember the story being somewhat boring, and the bosses just feeling like regular monsters with slightly more health. I feel with the more dynamic bosses in DA2 I'm used to I'm going to have a hard time getting back into this one, though.
this is the best game i have ever played! the story is incredibile and i cannot belive how attached i got to my mute shield-wielder city elf who speaks through telepathy
Only bad thing is the fade its so annoying but the rest of it is amazing. Kinda reminded me of Lord Of The Rings.
I am not a RPG fan, but this game is really good. It is the first PC game since Half-Life 2 I played again after finishing it.
@realguitarhero5 Mass Effect was interesting and involving? Could have fooled me. Maybe if you're completely unfamiliar with Science Fiction. For the rest of us, it was one of the cheesiest, silliest games ever made. And those mechanics. Shudder. Either be an RPG, a shooter, or a driving sim. Don't be mediocre at all three.
@realguitarhero5 lol - I came here to read some user feedback, and here it is - your hate comment :DD
@bayernfan Please tilt your head back a little further, I can't see all the way up your nose you stereotypically conceited RPG elitist.
@corteztheg No it doesn't. It was stripped; it replaced tactics for speed - thus turning it into an arcade style RPG. Even BW agree that there was something wrong with it, which is why they're taking tips from Skyrim.
@bayernfan Skyrim is shit.
@bayernfan dude no.
