Great RPG!

When I asked this game for christmas last year, I knew it was going to be good. And when I opened my present and got it, man the fun started!

A tactical RPG like you have always wanted! It mixes components from alot of genres (RPG, Action, Hack n slash) and keeps the game focused on tactics. The story line is a great addition to the game and the fact that you can learn alot about every character's back story is very nice.

The game is mature and the gameplay is easy to take in hand, but hard to master. There is no multiplayer unfortunately, but it is still one of the best games out there in the moment. Go ahead, buy it!

A good blend of old and new

Those that are looking for a modern take on the great computer RPGs of the late 90's can stop at least for a while, for Dragon Age: Origins is almost that game. Blending turn-based strategy with real time action, Dragon Age provides a fun fantasy RPG experience that thrusts you into devastating conflict between good and evil. Though the game has much in the way of content, it still ultimately feels a bit on the short side and does not feature nearly as much variations to make repeat play throughs feel as fresh after the first time through. Furthermore, while the game's overall design is largely quality, players may have to slog through a few dungeons and areas that fall well beneath the quality of the remainder of the game. Overall, Dragon Age: Origins is a worthy entry to the genre and should at least provide a little bit of nostalgia for those looking for days long past.

Exactly what you'd expect.

Dragon Age: Origins is pretty much exactly what you'd expect it to be if you're a fan of fantasy and Bioware's previous work.

It's an epic RPG of massive size, featuring branching choices (with individual character approval ratings, deviating slightly from Bioware's usual Light/Dark, Paragon/Renegade, etc system), tactical overhead combat, and impressive visuals.

The story is also pretty traditional fantasy fare that's been capably executed. DA:O doesn't break much in the way of new ground, but if you're a fan of the genres it pulls from and you want more (a lot more, there's a ton of content here) it's a solid choice that you won't regret.

One Spectacular Game

ROKET | June 30, 2012 | See all ROKET's reviews »

I knew I was going to love this game before I even got it and cant tell you how many hours I spent battling through this wonderful game.

Visually this game is stunning with only a bad texture here and there to tarnish its beautiful and colorful presentation. It is gritty, mature and bloody and really comes across as a game built to present its dark setting.

From a sound point of view this game is also great with awesome voice acting and wonderful atmosphere and battle sounds to enhance an already visually immersive game.

The gameplay in this game is tight. There is no clunk, no stutter, no lag - nothing. Everything blends seemlessly whether you play close up in the third person action view or from a far in the isometric strategic view.

The story of the game is also very good. If you happen to pick up the ultimate edition of this game you'll get not only the main campaign but an expansion and 9 DLC packs to boot. Its amazing.

All in all I VERY HIGHLY recommend this game to any RPG fan. Go out and get the Ultimate Edition - you will never regret it.
