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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A game worth playing March 25, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Signature|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I enjoyed this game (please note, I have the Signature Edition). But I like RPGs. I like story, I like details, I like characters. I read every entry in the codex, and I do all the sidequests. I missed exactly two things in DAII - one was a glitch, and for the other, I just forgot to go turn in the item before heading into the Deep Roads but didn't realize it until I was at the boss fight.
I didn't miss auto-attack, but then, I was playing a mage. My job was crowd-control and cleanup, not DPS. I didn't need to be attacking constantly. I suspect this will get annoying on my melee playthroughs, but it will still be worth it. All other aspects of gameplay are a major improvement over Dragon Age: Origins, in my opinion. My first run of the game clocked in at over 47 hours, at level 25. I did not experience any game-breaking bugs, however, I did get beaten senseless by a dragon because I was completely surprised by the (optional) fight.
The story of Dragon Age II focuses on the City of Kirkwall, which has some very serious problems, and the life of the main character. You must earn the respect and/or friendship of your companions. I lost one companion partway through the game because I had not earned their trust, and another at the end of the game because of the choices I made. Your companions are not just automatons who follow you mindlessly; they have opinions and they react to your behavior. You can even romance them, if you are so inclined. BioWare has taken a giant step in making genuine options available to all players.

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing follow-up December 19, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Signature|Verified Purchase
I loved Dragon Age: Origins. I beat it with three characters and completed all the DLC. I was beyond excited for Dragon Age II when it was announaced.

Unfortunately it did not live up to the hype or my expectations.

Dragon Age II looks good. The graphics are solid and an improvement upon the first entry. The voice work is also good (though I find DA:O still superior) as is the music. That is where the game succeeds, it fails elsewhere.

The gameplay itself was changed to be more fast paced and actiony. For any of the warrior classes this turned it into a pure button masher, which made longer fights less then thrilling. You spend about 90% of the game within the city of Kirkwall, only venturing out for occasional side quests. The city itself is ok sized but not massive, this leads to a large amount of reused sights and scenes. Even the side quest dungeons are reused repeatedly, with certain sectons just blocked off.

Character customization has also decreased. You are always the human Hawke, though you can pick your class and develop your skill trees as you see fit. Bioware went the Mass Effect route to give their character a defined "voice".

The story is also nothing amazing. I understand it is intended to be a more "personal" story then DA:O but you really don't feel like what are you doing matters much. Events go forward and feel like they would be close to the same without your involvement. The side characters with a few exceptions (Varric) are also not as interesting or sympathetic, nor are your interactions or relationships with them.

Dragon Age II is an ok or even good game. It does not however live up to the high bar set by the series with Dragon Age: Origins or expected by a Bioware product.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is a fun game, but it can be better... April 5, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Signature|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I enjoyed this game. I spent 70+ hours on the first play-through and I am in the second round. It is a fun game, but it can be better. There are hits and misses:

The hits are definitely the graphics, the combat system, and the dialog wheel. The graphics are gorgeous. Battles are spectacular, especially if one plays Hawke as a mage. If a player wants to experience combat as a warrior or rogue, he/she can easily switch control from Hawke to his/her other companions. The tactics table is a very good idea, with which the player can program the combatants not under player control to response in certain ways under certain circumstances. The player character is fully voiced. The dialog wheel is taken from Mass Effect; the icon indicating the emotion conveyed by the dialog choice is new. When used properly, the dialog wheel delivers a seamless and continuous dialog. It is superior to the dialog system in Dragon Age: Origin, where the player character is silent and the dialog was chosen from a restaurant style menu.

The misses are undoubtedly the smallness of the game world and the uninspiring story. Battlefields are used again and again - after one sees the same mansion or cave for 13 times, one gets very tired of it. The entire game, including the main quest, seems like a series of little side-quests strung together. There are a few twists and turns in the main plot, but the overall story is bland. It was as if EA, after spending a ton of money developing the combat system and the graphics, decided that they had to scrimp on the story and the game world to stay on budget. All is not lost, however, if EA will build on the good things they have done so far and expand the game world and improve the script in Dragon Age 3.

The game has a more streamlined RPG element to it, than an immersive RPG element. They recycled a bunch of the same environments, which made the game seem highly repetitive. Read more
