I played Dragon Age Origins when it came out and loved it, there was very little about it I didn't like. Dragon Age 2 on the other hand, I could find a lot of things to dislike. Don't get me wrong, Dragon Age 2 is still a good game and worth a play-through but if you're expecting it to be up to Origins' standard then you will be fairly disappointed.

For the first several hours of play I was content with the game, it showed much promise, I enjoyed the faster paced fighting and was ready to throw myself into another entertaining story. I didn't mind that it was a different character from the first. Though as the hours went on I was still unclear as to what the story was about and I was very disappointed with the lack of new scenery in the game.

I won't go through the whole game but what disappointed me was most was that the 'big epic danger' that I had been expecting never came, In comparison to saving the world from the darkspawn it isn't epic at all. I realise that games don't need to have 'epic' storys to be good. I suppose that I might have enjoyed the game far more If I had known that the story wasn't like the first before I started playing.

Despite my negative sounding review, I did enjoy a lot about this game that was similar to origins and had it not been set in just one city it would be one of my favorite games.

I recommend anyone who wants a good game but is not expecting greatness to get this as it is still a good play.
