My wife loved Oblivion, but is unable to get into Demon's Soul. Is this the game I should have got her? Help! Anyone who loved Oblivion, do you like Dragons Age in the same way. Thanks in advance for the advice.
Well Dragons Age is much different than Oblivian, as you're controlling 4 characters for most of the game, where I always thought of Oblivian as an FPS/RPG. She could play on easy mode to help, but any game mode harder will probably require some micro-management of your party. Also setting up tactics is a must, each character has default tactics, and oddly one of those tactics not in the default sets is to use a health potion when health is low. But as your party levels, many of their new abilities won't be used unless you tell them too. Probably the biggest tip I can give one party member should be an alchemist, health potions are rare, but the components to make them aren't. You don't really need to advance the skill other than for one optional quest. I played the entire game on normal difficulty, and just made TONS of potions, as well as played a mage that can heal/resurrect and I kicked butt with my party getting wiped only a couple times. So if she doesn't mind a bit of micromanagement, and controlling 4 characters versus one, I think she'll love DA:O. I did, best RPG in years.
Its not like it IMO. Its not an open world to explore like Oblivion for starters. You get 4 characters at a time as mentioned above which has a bit of depth to it. Its a great game but a very different experience.
