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.

3.0 out of 5 stars They Fixed Everything... That Was Never Broken March 12, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
My girlfriend and I were huge fans of DA: O. We played through each class and race from beginning to end so it was only natural to anticipate part two with baited breath. After all, Bioware games almost never take a step backward, but it seems there's a first time for everything!

If you've played Mass Effect 2, you will quickly see where they were trying to go with DA2. Tried but failed. Mass Effect 2 was a fantastic game. Similarly, DA: O was a great game that didn't need to be "fixed" in order to be more like Mass Effect! If they'd only built upon the original game's rock solid foundation, this could have been a spectacular follow up. So what went wrong you ask?

DA: O gripped us from the very onset with the different origin stories, an epic plot, and fascinating characters. It kept the overarching mission clear throughout while offering tons of diversions. Decisions felt like they mattered. Side with the werewolves or Dalish? That's who helps in the final battle. DA2 on the other hand had a decent plot, but even when I could keep track of it, it never swept me away. While on the surface decisions seemed to matter, in the end it felt very linear. The story ultimately seemed like little more than a device to move the game along from one quest to the next.

Never thought I'd be writing this about a Bioware game, but the companions in DA2 are straight up boring and of all the ones to bring over from DA: O they chose Anders from Awakening? While some of the inter-party dialogue was amusing, it didn't have me laughing like DA: O. Dog is an activated power and not a companion. The relationship building system was kind of interesting. If you're nice you build friendships and if you're not, rivalries. Both can have benefits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun (with flaws) but not as engaging as Origins. March 18, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm about half way in and I'm enjoying the experience overall, but there are many design flaws, and odd choices that keep me from giving this game a higher score, which I would probably rate at 7/10.

Pros:
1) Graphics are lovely. Improved over the last one. Character and area designs are nice.
2) Some likable characters. All have good voice actors, and while the personalities may be up to personal taste I though they were mostly good. I like Varric and Merrill the most, myself.
3) Companion uniqueness. I thought this was a big upgrade over DA:O. Each character now has their own unique skill group to go along with their class specific skill groups. As well as getting a passive effect for being your friend or your rival.
4) Ability trees improved. Things are much more open in this game, more choices, more abilities.
5) Companion relationship improved. It's more than just dumping gifts on them now. Your actions are the main factor in getting characters to like or dislike you, which some may not think is an upgrade but I personally do.
6) Runes are simpler than before, but I think its an improvement over all. The efficacy of your runes now depends on the item they are attached to rather than the rune itself. So the rune you have in act one will be the same rune in act 3, but will have a better effect because the items you set them in are improved. No more useless +1 fire damage etc, runes.

Cons:
1) Exploration: Don't expect much. Well to be more exact expect to re-explore constantly. First off the areas you find while playing will "renewed" at the start of each act.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Massive Step Backward March 20, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Some reviewers have suggested that the main problem with Dragon Age 2 is that it adapts the world of DA to the strictures of Mass Effect's gaming style, resulting in an unpleasant masseffectification that saps the playing experience of its uniqueness. While there are a few small senses in which this is true (especially with the adoption of the dialogue wheel), to make this claim is to miss the mark: Dragon Age 2 is simply a downgrade from its predecessor in virtually every way. If anything, we should be stunned that Bioware, a company which responded to nearly every criticism of Mass Effect 1 for its development of Mass Effect 2, appears to have completely ignored the feedback that they received for this series' previous title, Origins.

Perhaps the most crippling issue--and also the most surprising--is the game's poor writing quality. Dragon Age: Origins set the bar for clever dialogue in gaming, giving gamers an unforgettable experience. From Morrigan's imperious jabs, to Zevran's lewd humor, to Alistair's goofy commentary, each character's remarks seethed with carefully crafted personality; even the Warden's speech options were routinely witty. By contrast, the cast of Dragon Age 2 (with the exception of the suave dwarf brigand Varric) is uniformly uninteresting, wooden, and above all, angsty. You'll groan as Anders and your brother Carver assail you with angry tirades about the mages and templars, sigh apathetically at the totally forgettable Aveline, and shake your controller at the screen in frustration as Hawke routinely makes comments that fail to reflect the options you select on the dialogue wheel.
