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.
Amazing Or What!!!?chataolauj | Jan. 22, 2014 | See all chataolauj's reviews »
This game is by far the definition of RPG(I may be exaggerating a little). This game has an excellent choice of dialogues that makes you want to replay over and over again. This game great replay value, so if you're a gamer that likes games with a lot of replay value, then this is the game for you. Character interaction is the best element in this game; it exceeds all expectations. I'm currently on my fifth play through, so that tells a lot about this game, and I'm not even a hardcore gamer when it comes to PC games.

Dragon Age Origins is a great game with a great story and a decent RPG combat system. This is an RPG done correctly, with just enough choice and consequences to leave you feeling like the character you create has a unique tale. The characters are interesting and the relationship system in the game is engaging and fun, if a little simplistic and flawed (you can just bribe everyone with gifts to make them love you).
Some of the choices you make in this game have consequences in Dragon Age 2 if you load your character file into that game. Although Dragon Age 2 is a completely separate experience and is a pretty bad game, I have hopes that my Dragon Age Origins adventures will have an impact on the third upcoming game in the series.
