Not as good as I expectedShaide | April 16, 2015 | See all Shaide's reviews »
This game IS good based on it's own merits, however when comparing it to previous games of the series, it felt like something was missing. Sure, the names and locations were all there, but it didn't feel as polished as the others. Animations seemed off, and my character(At least as the male) seemed dazed and confused. Always staring off into space.
Plus, there is a serious syncing issues. Mouth movements don't always match the words being spoken. and sometimes, between slow FPS and the syncing, it looks like you are watching a poorly dubbed Godzilla movie.
Still, as an RPG, it's enjoyable. Just don't expect a highly polished experience.
A beutiful gameMJO96 | April 12, 2015 | See all MJO96's reviews »
Without a doubt, this game truly lives up to the name Dragon Age, everything in it is beautiful and done well, from the combat, to the party dynamics, it is all masterfully done with a engaging story. It is a Semi Open world that is large enough that you never feel restricted to linear pathways or other such things, but closed enough that you will never truly feel lost.
One of the highlights of the game for me is the political intriuge sequence, I wont say what it is as I dont want to spoil anything, but I have seen many games try to do this and fail,but DAI does it masterfully, always keeping you guessing and on your toes as you try to figure out who is your enemy and weighing that with who you want to be in power all while trying to keep your suspicion from going up.
The other major highlight for me were the character side missions/stories, these missions dont feel like simple fetch or "go kill a thing" missions, I felt connected to each and every one of them and honestly had trouble making decisions in a couple of them, weighing what is good for the inquisition, against what the companion wants and against what I want for my character and the companion.
The Only real downsides of the game are as follows: 1. multiplayer needs some work, there is no tutorial on how to get crafting ingredients so that you can make better weapons or progress to the next class, and people dont even seem to use the feature that much 2. like in DA2, you can have up to 8 abilities mapped to hot buttons on either your keyboard, or if your like me, your controller, however unlike DA2 if you have an ability you want to use that is not mapped to a button or key, you cant acceess your other abilites to use through the radial menu like you could in DA2 which can be quite frustrating if you are suddenly set upon by a creature with a specific weakness and you dont have the ability that exploits that mapped to your hot bar.
While this is not something Devs can do much about, since trying to find the balance between performance and quality is a difficult thing and is made more lengthy by the fact that the game forces you to quit and restart it each time you change a graphics setting
If you want to play the game, but you didnt log into origin before you left the house and now no longer have wifi, you are unable to play the game until you can sign into Origin and connect to the EA servers, which is frustrating, but thats more of a devs being dumb than a game problem.
After you complete the final mission it is impossible to continue taliking to your compainions
Overall a wonderful game I would highlyl recommend it to anyone who wants a fantasy RPG
Major Comeback for Dragon Age Seriesejamesharper | March 20, 2015 | See all ejamesharper's reviews »
This is the true sequel to Dragon Age: Origins. The open-world settings are absolutely gorgeous and the combat is always fun. You can roam around for hours doing side-quests without even touching the main story.
This is how you do a multi-platform game. Scale the graphics up to fully PC capacity (as opposed to awful graphics in Dark Souls 2).
This chapter of Dragon Age captures the same compelling narrative as in Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect, and hopefully will set the bar for future Bioware titles.
Bioware is back and they delivered a gemTakwin | Feb. 8, 2015 | See all Takwin's reviews »
Lose yourself in a gorgeous massive open world, with many different stories to follow and tales to be forged. The Skyhold fortress, mission map, party system, crafting system - all excellent. The voice acting is great. Your party members have a LOT of variety in personality and you have at least 2 of each class, plus yourself, to field a party of 4, so you can play it your way and change as the situation dictates.
The great mix of Skyrim-type action RPG and slower, turn-based RPG like Transistor and similar to Fire Emblem. It's a little more action-y than Origins, and even though I generally prefer pure turn-based games, I was entertained and engaged with the combat system throughout the game.
Rest assured, a stunning success like this shows that Bioware is back after the SWTOR mistake (we all wanted KOTOR 3) and the misfire at the end of Mass Effect 3 (which I still loved anyway). Now, we can all look forward to Mass Effect 4, and whatever else Bioware has in store for us.
A well done RPGTheFadeForever | Jan. 21, 2015 | See all TheFadeForever's reviews »
The game has a huge amount of content that can last you more than 100 hours. Graphics/art style is gorgeous especially if you have the PC that can max it. Combat lies somewhere between DA2 and the original although the system leans towards the second game but a lot better.There are more romance option in the game to choose from. Characters are well written and interesting to say the least. Plot is engaging with choices to choose from that will impact the story.
This is the Dragon Age game that we fans have been waiting for. It actually feels like a proper sequel. There so many things to do in the game its kinda overwhelming. Although many quests can be merely no more than fetch type quest. There are those that stand out and even when you think your getting close to the end your only hitting the tip of the iceberg. With more polish to the game this is the go to RPG to get if your looking for anything out in the market.
