5.0 out of 5 stars Great Title for Fans of RPGs, November 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dragon Age: Origins - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
I have played and enjoyed every Bioware game for years now. They bring and unique and immersive spin to RPGs and Dragon Age is no different. However, this is a traditional RPG, if you are not a fan of those there will not be much here you like.

The story for Dragon Age is great. Dialogue is interactive and the choices you make can have long lasting impacts on the story. Major decision can come about with very little warning. I found the dialogue intensive periods to be a nice break from dungeon crawling. The high number of response choices allow you to play in a number of different ways (heroic, bloodthirsty, greedy, etc). The six unique character origin stories (about the 1st 2 hrs of gameplay) and the varying story paths give the game a lot of replay value. Above and beyond the plot, Bioware has crafted an interesting world. There are many books and scrolls scattered throughout the world that fill in the background of Ferelden.

Dragon Age does not have the best graphics, but they are adequate. The art direction is good and the visuals really help set the mood. What Dragon Age lacks in visuals it makes up for with sound. The score is great and the voice acting is unbelievable. Every interaction is voiced (and trust me there are a lot of interactions). You party companions will also interact with each other as you're walking around, these are usually humorous and I found my self stopping to listen in. Because the voice acting was so good I was sometimes swayed to pick when dialogue option over another.

Dragon Age is highly recommended for fans of Bioware and the genre.
