This was a throwback of the older RPGs I grew up with for me, with updated graphics and a few new mechanics. The combat was easily my favorite part. I paused often, turning it into more of a turn based RPG. However, it can also be played in real-time effectively.
The storyline itself was generic, and I don't really see the praise it gets. The characters themselves, though, were entertaining and interesting. Getting to know each and every one of them on a deeper level was satisfying.
The game and all of the DLC sucked up a huge chunk of my time, in a good way. I've replayed the base game more times than I remember, each with a different class.
If you're a fan of RPGs, this is definitely one you don't want to miss.
Awesome Game, Awesome Storyromenjack | Nov. 5, 2013 | See all romenjack's reviews »
The story is grate, the writing is awesome, and the characters actually have different personalities that are interesting. every origin story is interesting and actually has effects on the rest of the game even if they dont effect much. And the romances of your companions are actually engaging though still suffer from the bioware syndrome of say all the right things and they will throw themselves at you. the part where this game lacks though is the fighting mechanic. while i do like the tactical aspect of it and the difference in difficulty from normal to hard is extreme and really adds a challenge but it can be slow and suffers from the mmo set up of two people standing there hitting each other and the fist one to run out of health looses. overall a fun game, fun story, and you will definitely play it several time.

I couldn't get into Dragon Age Origins no matter how hard I tried. I love the idea of being able to control your own game, make your own choices but I was incredibly disappointed when I found out that this was a traditional RPG game and not an action RPG game. Unfortunately this took me out of the experience and took any potential joy of this game , out of me. Buyer beware because I made that mistake and paid for it (literally). For a 2009 game, the graphics weren't that stunning, but its to be expected because it does have a lot in the game itself. I personally wouldn't recommend it unless you're an avid RPG player then maybe

There really isn't anyway to start this review so Ill do my best -
Story - An epic storytelling that I believe is on par with Lord of the Rings. You play a character who is from the order of the Grey Warden, and you are to amass a giant army that comes from the alliances of different kingdoms and realms while also dealing with the political problems and relationships with your characters while fighting the hellspawn and the archdemon (an unbelievably strong and intelligent dragon). Months after you beat the game (DLC), you are continuing your journey across the lands, bringing order. The last DLC (in chronological order) has you settle your personal score with one of your former party members.
Gameplay - easy to play, easy to insanely difficult to beat. Quite the challenge you will find here. Decisions can be difficult.
Music - Memorable and really adds to the atmosphere, particularly the music you hear whenever you go to camp.
Visuals - while not on par with current gen graphics, it is forgivable but not as bad.
I found myself playing the game from beginning to end (Witch Hunt) and clocking in at 128 hours (with side quests). This game will definitely not disappoint for those who love a good story, good and balanced gameplay and an overall great RPG experience.

This is a great rpg game with awesome gaming mechanics, but that is not the true star here. The great gameplay only compliments the amazing story. Craft your own story as Ferelden's last hope against an ancient evil that roots back to the dawn of time. See the perspectives from cultures all around Ferelden, conquer the taint and master your skills of a grey warden, and forge alliances to beat the darkspawn back into the holes they came from! If you ever loved rpgs you owe it to yourself to own this game
