Product Details:

From the Makers of Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Baldur's Gate comes an epic tale of violence, lust, and betrayal. The survival of humanity rests in the hands of those chosen by fate. You are a Grey Warden, one of the last of an ancient order of guardians who have defended the lands throughout the centuries. Betrayed by a trusted general in a critical battle, you must hunt down the traitor and bring him to justice. As you fight your way towards the final confrontation with an evil nemesis, you will face monstrous foes and engage in epic quests to unite the disparate peoples of a world at war. A romance with a seductive shapeshifter may hold the key to victory, or she may be a dangerous diversion from the heart of your mission. To be a leader, you must make ruthless decisions and be willing to sacrifice your friends and loved ones for the greater good of mankind.

  • A Stunning World to Explore: BioWare's deepest universe to date with over 80 hours of gameplay and more than double the size and scope of Mass Effect

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely up my ally Personally, this game is so far one of the best that I've played since D3/Reaper of Souls. The storyline is definitely interesting, the gameplay is fun and overall a pretty good game. I love the fact that there are cut scenes frequently because it makes it feel like you're watching a movie that you're the star of. I bought Origins and DA2 together and after playing half way through Origins, I was compelled to buy Awakening as well. If you're like me and love a really good story line to go with some action this game is for you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely a game that wants to get serious! There is a modest learning curve in getting to know this game (atleast for me there was).The game controls and game menus and awesome powers and talents of the characters are very well thought out- the game requires it for all its depth! This game was everything I hoped for in a magic style good versus evil game! AWESOME special effects.*applaus*. Congratulations on a game that really delivers the goods, entertaining, and even scared my 10 year old daughter a few times while I was in a big ugly blood, magic, and giant fist smashing-down on the enemy battle. P.S. there is NOTHING cheap about any characteristics of this game-every movement was natural-NOT squared or cut cornered when the attack was coming 'round...which carelessly programmed games will have. To sum this game up, it is the kind of game that one could play multple times and find something different about it each time...play it -its a good game but give it a chance to grab you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Any Level of Gamer Dragon Age: Orgins (henceforth referred to as DAO) is one of the best games I have ever played. It's very interesting comparing how the different backgrounds and races are treated by others and how your character also reacts. The game gives you choices that are viewed as good or evil and the choices you make will affect the overall outcome of the game during the epilogue. I have had the game for a while and have yet to beat it as it is a very time consuming game. I have spent over 30 hours and am about 1/2-3/4 of the way through the game (which doesn't include any side quests or downloadable content quests), and that's just for one origin. So, theoretically, if you wanted to play all origins and see all possible endings, you would spend hundreds of hours playing it. The soundtrack to the game is amazing, my only complaint is that there are occasional buzzing noises, but that could just be my computer being at the minimum requirements for the game. There are four levels of difficulty: easy, normal, hard, and nightmare. Easy is best for the casual gamer and one who wants to experience the storyline and not struggle through the game and nightmare is great for the expert strategists. The graphics are really good for a PC game, the default setting may not look stunning, but turn the graphic and texture detail settings all the way up and it will look great. BUYER BEWARE: The PC game takes up around 15-20GB of space on your hard drive so if you don't have that much space I would advise solving that issue before purchasing this. DAO is an excellent game that I would recommend to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best RPG game since...ever! Amazing game, amazing characters, amazing story line. It was so plot heavey, like heaven- but with more blood, romance, and humor! Really this has to be the best game I have ever played. I play it all the time, always with a couple of games going at once. I never really played video games before this, but now I cant stop! It is easy enough for casual/new gamers, while hard enough for hardcore gamers if they so chose! The best of the two that are out, with the second game lacking in the depth and plot. Play this! You will not regret it ;]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 - Almost Flawless! Dragon Age: Origins is by far one of the best games out there. Since I am a creative writer, I LOVE plot heavy games. This was perfect for me. I enjoyed every single minute of this game and even went back and played it three times, each with a different story. The game is extremely open-ended on how you can make your moral decisions, which creates a lasting appeal. The story ends different every time based on your choices. That's what I love about this game. I especially liked the deep character development and how you could become involved with your companions, since it made you feel as if you were in the actual word of Ferelden. The graphics were great, but definitely could have been a little better, considering that you had to load each area that you visited. That was a problem: the loading. Unlike how Bethesda made their game with Oblivion, Dragon Age had much more loading, since you must load each area you visit. The loading made me feel disconnected from the rest of the game. On the other hand, the plot and story development made up for what it was lacking. The fighting strategy was very easy, and I liked that aspect. It was extremely simple to switch from character to character during combat, and I absolutely loved how they set up the skills. I really wish more gamer companies would come forward with RPGs such as this. After playing this game, it's hard to play any of the others that I own. Seriously, do yourself a favor and buy this game. 10/10 -- Wow!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Luv this game!!! I am an avid PC gamer. I have tried all genres on the PC and let me say the Role Playing is the best genre to play on pc. Now i read through some of the other review before i wrote this one and for the most they were all good and to the point but there was one guy who said that there wasnt much action in this game etc etc. I really want to know what game he was playing. This game had plenty of action. It was a good story, and the plot was excellent, but the best of it all was nothing was exact. The way everything played out could have gone 200 different ways. I went back and replayed this game in every culture, Human, elf, dwarf, warrior, mage, etc. This is one game that swallows you up into the gameplay and story. I couldnt stop thinking of it when i wasnt playing it. Overall one the best games ever invented and i cant wait to play DA2. I know there will be more stories like Oblivion. The way this was layed out it could go on and on like that game but this one i played from the beginning woo hoo!!!!.
