From the Manufacturer

Dragon Age II is a single player role-playing game (RPG) for play on the Mac. Epic sequel to the BioWare developed 2009 Game of the Year, Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II continues the adventure with a new hero, Hawke, and utilizes the choices made by the player to affect a story that spans ten years worth of time in-game. Additional game features include: the ability to choose your character's class and sex, a new cinematic in-game experience, a nonlinear narrative and the ability to import saved information from earlier Dragon Age games.

About Dragon Age II

Embark on an all-new adventure spread across a ten-year span of years with an all-new hero in the multiple award-winning Dragon Age saga. In Dragon Age II you are Hawke, said to have been one of the few to survive the destruction of your homeland. Forced to fight for survival, you gathered the deadliest of allies, amassed fame and fortune and sealed your place in history, eventually becoming in effect a legend in your own time. But legends are all in the telling.

Dragon Age II utilizes a nonlinear narrative, taking the form of a story-within-a-story that hinges upon your exploits as told by the storyteller, Varick. Yet like any good storyteller, Varick tends to exaggerate from time to time. When questioned on events related to Hawke, Varick may present a different scenario in which Hawke's exploits play out. It is within these replays that the decisions of the players hold sway, as their particular versions of Hawke relive these events. Is the player's particular version of Hawke, male or female? A warrior, a rogue, or a mage? Is Hawke good-natured or something less than a salt-of-the-Earth type? Is romance in the air amongst characters he/she associates with? These choices are all the player's to make and each affect the the outcome of the story at all levels.

Game Features

  • Embark upon an all-new adventure that takes place across an entire decade and shapes itself around every decision you make
  • Determine your rise to power from a destitute refugee to the revered champion of the land
  • Think like a general and fight like a Spartan with dynamic new combat mechanics that put you right in the heart of battle whether you are a mage, rogue, or warrior

  • Discover a whole realm rendered in stunning detail with updated graphics and a new visual style

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be afraid to test your low end video card February 16, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I liked Dragon Age Origins and like this one just as much. The reason I'm writing a review is not so much for the game itself, but to alleviate fears of playing on your Macbook Pro with an Intel HD 3000 integrated video card. This game runs perfectly well with the exception of the occasion glitch which may cause your computer to freeze. It's happened a couple times to me, no big deal. The frame rate is definitely decent enough to enjoy the game. I keep it on LOW settings. It only gives you the option of LOW/HIGH, and it didn't like HIGH settings, at least for the early 2011 Intel HD 3000 model. No provider of this game officially support the video card, but don't worry, it works fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars That's... better? December 22, 2011
By Greg
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Edition:Standard
I often wonder if it's fair to judge a sequel too heavily against the original. They are two unique and individual products, two stand-alone stories and adventures. Especially in video games that are less tied to continuity than books and movies (How much is Grand Theft Auto IV reliant on Grand Theft Auto III for its stories and character, for example. Almost not at all and yet one is still a 'sequel' to the toher). And yet it's easy to play Dragon Age 2 and dismiss it as 'worse' than Dragon Age: Origins while forgetting that's it actually still a fun game on it's own.

But, you know... it is worse. It's actually kind of disapointing. If you were very much in love with Origins (and... i was. I admit it) than you're going to be at least a little bummed out, there's no real way around it.

The most notable jumps from first to the sequel are techincal. Dragon Age II is slick, shiny, and smoothe. It hitches rarely, hasn't crashed on me once, and the load times have been cut to about a third. Animations are slick and and even and there's much less awkward stuff happening. The staging for the little "conversations" has been improved and there's more visual variety throughout. All good, sexy stuff. There's more variety in conversations and more options based on which party members you happen to have with you at the time and they've obviously pushed limits and didn't cut corners in making the game look and sound heads above its predecessor.

But... that's the only thing that's improved. The absolutely only thing.

Gameplay hasn't changed much; you still lead your party of four unique characters at a time against waves of various monsters and thieves and what not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! October 10, 2011
By Kimi
Platform for Display:Mac Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
The reviews were so negative, I was scared to purchase this game for my Mac. The game has great graphics with only minor glitches in sound. Don't be afraid to try it out if you have enough space on your Mac to run it!

The storyline I had learned from my friend was different from the first game. When I saw for myself, I liked it better than Dragon Age Origins. There are more involved character personalities and choices for relationships in this game have improved and worsened at the same time. While you can't share a kiss with your "sweety" whenever you want, the romance scenes are intense and made me giggle like a schoolgirl.

You have to be online in order to play, which is one of the few downfalls. But other than that, it's a great game and I highly recommend it to Mac users who wanna try a game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uses a slow emulation layer June 1, 2011
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Edition:Standard
This game runs horrible on Mac due to the Transgaming emulation layer. Dragon Age II is not a native Mac app. This is the Windows version running on top of special emulation software. It absolutely kills the performance. Unless you have an incredibly high-end Mac the performance will be terrible.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesnt Work November 21, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
The download is flawed (through no fault of Amazon), as this appeared to be a common issue on the forums. The game wont or cant connect to the EA servers which is required to play. Im disappointed that i spent the 20$ on this game and that i cant even play it! I emailed Amazon costumer service about a refund or return and never received a response...

4.0 out of 5 stars If You Cannot Get it to Authorize August 11, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Edition:Standard
I've played DA2 previously on the Xbox, and I love the game, but I wanted to grab it for a replay on my mac. Attempting to do so ended up pretty nightmarish, apparently because EA has changed their authentication system to force everyone onto the "Origins" system. So, if you try to install this and the process chokes when you try to authenticate to the EA servers on launch, then this is what worked for me:

1) Patch the file. Instructions here: [...]
(note: If you cannot see the splash screen at launch, assume you have version 1.0)

2) Install the Origin client: [...]

3) Do the dance of origin signup. the extent to which it plays nicely with existing bioware account seems pretty negligible. Be careful about default settings because the origin client is like a crappier, more intrusive version of Steam.

4) Start up the Origin client. Click on your icon, then click "Edit my profile"
(That is actually the link to all account stuff, it's just named terribly)

5) Select "Redeem Product Code" from the bar on the left.

6) Put in your DA2 activation code and then confirm (you can also put in the second code for Black Emporium)

7) Once Origin is happy and thinks you have a legitimate copy, try launching it again. I was worried I'd have to delete it and re-download via Origin, but it started up as it should for me.

Needless to say, sorting this all out was intensely frustrating, and has reinforced or magnified every bad impression I had of EA/Origin.

Good luck.
