1.0 out of 5 stars Good games, if you can play them May 23, 2013

This is not intended to be a review of the games themselves, but rather a review of the process of buying and installing them via Amazon's downloads and navigating EA's rather paranoid DRM process. This was attempted on a 15" retina macbook pro. Your mileage may vary.

First, DA:Origins. This download is beefy (13+ GB). I had multiple errors during the download process where the downloader complained of a write failure (despite there being no technical problems on my computer that would prevent writing). This entailed re-launching the downloader, which conveniently picked up where it left off. Unfortunately, this is a bit of a false economy, as we will see. Once the thing finally finished, the disk image failed to mount with a checksum failure. So when the downloader resumed, it apparently didn't check to make sure the file was intact, and instead wrote whatever garbage caused the problem in the first place. Great. Skipping verification results in a correctly mounting image, but an installer than hangs 80% of the way through. So it's back to the download. It has not yet completed, so I cannot report on whether the game EVER installs correctly or manages to run.

DA2: Smaller download (6ish GB), same problems, right down to the checksum failing. This time, skipping verification results in an installer that successfully completes. However, the game will not launch correctly. Sound, but garbled video. Downloading the latest patch from EA gets me a game that will launch. However, the game refuses to validate with EA's servers. No amount of tinkering with my internet connection, trying different connections, etc will get the thing to validate. So, to the web I go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Shock March 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
Having heard of, but never played, a Bioware RPG, I found Dragon Age 2 to be an amazing adventure. Dragon Age Origins might be much more expansive, but building a personality type that's fully voiced in 2 cannot be beat. That said, visiting the same places over and over again in 2 gets really damn repetitive if you play it without breaks for too long.

--- UPDATED --- The game will run if you edit one of the config files by hand. See below.

I would love to review this game but it simply will not run.

Installed DAOU including all content and DLC without any issues. When I try to run it, the program simply acts like it has opened a fullscreen window but it stays on the desktop. You can hear the audio, but there is no video. There are no error codes given and the game does not actually crash, but it is absolutely and completely unplayable. I've been trying to find support for this title, but so far have only found user forums.

Given the failure of the first game, I have not attempted to install and run DA2.

--- UPDATE ---

Commenter N. Lam posted this tip from the Bioware forums:

| Solution:
| 1. Open /Documents/BioWare/Dragon Age/Settings/DragonAge.ini
| 2. Change ResolutionWidth=1680 and ResolutionHeight=1050
| 3. Game should start properly now
| You can adjust resolution again in-game.
| Credit goes to jimckimmel in Bioware forum.

This does work, and I also tested it with "ResolutionWidth=1440 and ResolutionHeight=900" (a more natural size for the Retina MBP) which worked as well. Thanks so much to N. Lam and jimckimmel for this fix. I still have not received anything more than very general troubleshooting tips through the official EA support channels.

Now that the game is playable, it does run fairly well and I have not experienced any crashes yet. I tried running it at full 2880x1800 on the retina display, and it did run, but was quite choppy and the text was generally too small to read. At 1440x900 the game runs very well (on MBPr Mid 2012) with all graphical settings at their highest levels. I have not progressed very far into the game, but I would expect performance to remain at playable levels throughout.

I am enjoying my purchase now, no thanks to EA.
