About Dragon Age II

In Dragon Age II you are Hawke, said to have been one of the few to survive the destruction of your homeland. Forced to fight for survival, you gathered the deadliest of allies, amassed fame and fortune and sealed your place in history, eventually becoming in effect a legend in your own time. But legends are all in the telling.

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.

Like many people who absolutely loved the original Dragon Age and found the demo for Dragon Age 2 compelling, I was very much looking forward to this game. While DA2 is a good game in its own right, it's nearly impossible to judge it without comparing it to the original. So for those of you who spent a lot of time with the first game, here's what you can expect.

The pluses:
- Combat, while stripped down and requiring little strategy, is quite enjoyable. It's fast and every battle truly feels vicious.
- The Mass Effect 2-based communication system is very intuitive, and the expressions of your characters and voice acting are a significant upgrade.

Negatives:
- The storyline. Well, if you're expecting anything remotely as epic as the first game, get used to disappointment. There is very little character development and interaction with your team. I found myself not caring one bit about any of my squad members because none of them had a compelling background. And while I won't give away the ending, I had no interest in playing the game again after completing it - a first for a Bioware game.
- The game world is, well, small and repetitive. Get used to the architecture in Kirkwall, because with a few exceptions you'll be visiting the same places over and over again to accomplish your quests.
- The inventory system is a step back. Let's say you're playing as a rogue. Found a cool piece of armor for a warrior? Well, you're out of luck because with the exception of weapons and accessories, only the main character can equip armor upgrades.
- Much of the depth has been taken away. The original game allowed you to customize your character's abilities in survivalism, trap making, stealth, etc - all of it gone.

Before I start let me say that I was a HUGE fan of Origins. I never replay games and I have run through that game about three times just to see all of the different ways it can end up. It's one of my favorite games of all time.

That being said I love Dragon Age 2. I've seen a lot of 'original fans' hating on this game so I thought I'd give another opinion of it.

First let me start with the cons:
The story isn't as epic as the first one. There's no setting a goal and running through the whole game to get that. The story isn't bad but it isn't as deep as Origins.

Second you can import your game over from Origins but it really doesn't affect too much. You might hear someone mention something that you did last game or about someone you saved last game but it really doesn't have a huge impact on this game. I would have liked for it to have affected it a little bit more.

Thirdly the main thing I personally think of as a con is you can no longer talk to your party members at any time. In origins you could turn and talk to them and have a conversation about what just happened or about their personal life or their opinions. In this game you still hear them talk but you have to wait until certain points in the story/time has passed before having to go to their 'base' and actually speak with them. When you do speak with them the conversations aren't nearly as long or as revealing about them. If they make a DA3 I really hope that they bring back the ability to talk to your party members whenever you want and not just when the developers thought you should. The characters are suppose to be your friends but the fact that you have to wait long periods of time to speak with them kind of kills that feeling.

I have enjoyed almost all the games Bioware has produced in the past. Hardly anyone can deny that games like Baldurs Gate II, Dragon Age Origins and Kotor provide tons of entertainment. They received high ratings from professional reviewers and the community was pleased.

What happened? How is it possible for a gaming company to take such a nosedive in one year?

It would have been UNFATHOMABLE to even consider that the average community score for a Dragon Age sequel would be less than 60/100 but here we are.

How is it that in almost every single installment before Dragon Age 2 we had the ability to impact the world around us and the ending of the game would change depending on our choices? But now it doesn't matter who you support, not one bit. One tragedy after another isn't the core problem here but that you can't do anything about it.

What's the replay value people? Really, what is it? What can I do differently? Have sex with Merrill instead of Isabela and change my tone of voice while speaking during pre-determined events?

And how is it that romances have devolved into *press heart symbol to have h0t s3x*

What happened to gameplay? What happened to stealing, creating potions, collecting resources and having a connection with the world around us?

Where is the possibility to lie, intimidate and charm during conversations? Isn't that what roleplaying has been all about in your previous releases? You dont even need to read your own lines in DA2 (nor can you). Just choose one option from *calm*, *joke* or *angry*. Talking yourself out from a bad spot isn't really an option if the game has already decided what is going to happen.

What happened to being able to choose your own race.
