Dragon Age Origins, like Mass Effect, is an outstanding game. It is does so many things right and gets so little wrong.
In Dragon Age Origins, you can control either a human, a dwarf, or an elf, and these choices are among the first that will help you play through a unique story that is different every time you play through it. The story is extremely well done, and makes you feel like your choices do matter. The combat system is difficult to learn at first, but you will quickly start to enjoy it, especially if you take advantage of the pause button.
The music fits the tone perfectly and the locations, while looking dated graphically, get the point across that this is a dreary world where honest men do not make it long and only either the strong or the cruel flourish.
Dragon Age Origins won me over at the beginning and I enjoyed it thoroughly until the end. It is a must play for all lovers of fantasy rpgs.
Great overall game. Underwhelming combat system.heerox328 | Dec. 7, 2014 | See all heerox328's reviews »
This game is a pure classic. Brand new universe. Compelling characters. Massive and epic enemies. The entire fabric of the world on the line. Truly a stuff of wonder.
If you love a mixture of Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, this will be a game for you. The combat, itself, is a bit dated, but overall the game is solid everywhere else. The Awakening expansion is also one of the greatest expansions ever made for an RPG.
BioWare storytelling. Amazing companions. Great plot with a few twists. Moral dilemmas and the ultimate fight. There's a lot to be found here for any and all RPG fans.
DAO is also the only game where you can start out with extremely different origins, whether you are a human, elf, or dwarf, as well as a warrior, mage, or rogue with specific social standing in society.
Do not pass this gem up.

This game has all the makings of a great game. The choices that affects the outlook companions have on you.The quests that keep you going, and the great graphics. Plus, who doesn't like taking on enemies way bigger than your character.

I spent awhile with the game sitting in my library before I decided to pick it up and finally try it. And it's amazing.
It took me 40+ hours to finish the main campaign my first time. I'm now on my second playthrough, clocking in at 70+ hours and I've only finished one of the DLC campaigns on the side. Your choices in the game really do affect the game, which makes them meaningful. For instance, you might make a decision one party member highly doesn't agree with and they'll try to kill you. You can also romance a couple different of your party members, three available for a female character(two male, one female) and two options for a male character(two female). Who you choose to romance may also have an impact on the game.
Combat is pretty great if you're okay with point-and-click type combat. You can pause the game at any point with space bar so you have infinite time to make decisions in battle - which I love. You upgrade three different aspects of your character - your stats, utility skills and combat skills. Utility skills are unique and quite nice. Some characters have their own character-specific skills which is interesting. Finally, you can unlock more sets of skills at level 7 and 14, and you unlock the different types by making various decisions throughout the game such as getting closer to your party members and asking if they'd teach you.
My only complaint is that while there are many decisions in the game you can make, some of the more obvious ones you'd like to make aren't always there,for example at the end of the game where you may want to kill a certain character but cannot, or compromise on certain situations.
Beautiful Game, Interesting CombatFazbott | March 23, 2014 | See all Fazbott's reviews »
When I first booted up Dragon Age: Origins I automatically noticed it's gorgeous artwork and design. The game just looks fantastic especially at higher resolutions and specs. Once I got into the game play I was a little confused by the combat system simply because it wasn't what I was expecting, but the point and click style actually works out pretty well. There is a very expansive skill tree and lots of cool items to make your brain and gaming heart very happy.
