4.0 out of 5 stars Good game, October 1, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dragon Age 2 - PC (Video Game)
I was a little nervous about buying this game based on the bad reviews I had seen from so many people, but I'm glad I ended up buying it. Like other reviews have said, there are many features in this game that are better than the original Dragon Age, and there are some things that are worse:

What's better:
+Combat (it's faster, more visually impressive, and overall a lot more fun)
+Dialogue (I enjoyed having the main character actually speak as opposed to remaining silent in the original game)
+Talent trees (much better system imo)
+Player choice has a much bigger impact in this game - your choices very often impact how the rest of the game plays out, which is interesting to see

What's worse:
-Storyline (now it's not as bad as so many reviews make it out to be, it's actually good, but not quite as good as the original game. It doesn't have the same epic feel that the original game did)
-Relationships with characters (one of my favorite parts of the original Dragon Age was the camp where you could talk to all of your companions and build relationships with them. You don't really feel the same connectedness with your characters in Dragon Age II)
-Music (I'm really big on music when it comes to video games, and I thought the music soundtrack in the original Dragon Age was amazing - I can even play many of the songs in my head. The music in this game though is completely immemorable)

Overall it feels like they improved most of the technical aspects of the game but lacked in some of the elements of the original game which made it so much fun. However I still really enjoyed this game - not quite as much as the original - and I think it's worth buying especially if you catch it on sale. I hope this review helps!
