Rated 2 out of 10 by NightOwlie Disappointed
First I would like to say , that I have played DA I & II. DA Origins is the best RPG game of all time (in my opinion) sadly the sequels have been increasingly horrible.
EA - If I wanted a "Skyrim like" game, I would play Skyrim. What we all love about Origins is the story and the characters. The character interaction, the jokes, the dialog, the incredible voice acting (Inquisition characters sound like they are reading from a script), basically what I was hoping for was a game that takes me on a journey with friends who I care about and will miss when the game ends. Like a good book. Get it? (Of course battling together goes without saying). Maybe one of your execs should play origins again to see what a good game is.
Overall -The graphics are ok, but lets face it, RPGers are usually more forgiving of graphics if the story is good. I will admit I have not played very much of Inquisition, but I don't need to. You lost me at the beginning. I wqas bored, uninterested, and the glitches frustrated me to the point of quitting all together.
Nice try EA - but not even CLOSE
Rated 9 out of 10 by Ranfall Great game, huge world, lots of loot...minor bugs.
I don't usually write these things but when I saw that the average this game got was a two I had to, this has to be one of the best RPG's I have played in a long while. Bioware has finally given me an open world something I never thought they do and yes there are bugs as are in all games this huge but you have to remember they made this for the Next-Gen and PC mainly in mind, it can and does run fine on the PS3 I have played for hours and love the grind but you will hit a wall every now and then we just have to wait till they patch it out and if not trust me none of it is game-breaking. One annoying one that I will point out is a sound glitch, you will a loud audible click out of nowhere and I hope that goes away but that rarely happens. This is there first real open world and I am loving it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by DesertMortician Looking Forward to It
I find it amazing how we fans of the series already know so much about this game, and yet at the same time so little. Long time fans who have read all the books and know the lore are chomping at the bit to see parts of it referenced and talked about in this new game. Where as casual fans are excited to get there hands on it simply because it is a new, exciting, and different RPG experience. While it is a shame to hear that we will have to wait a whole month longer than anticipated, it shows how much love and care they are putting into this game. I prefer to wait longer then have them ship an unfinished game that they are going to patch day one. Regardless of if you are a hardcore fan of Bioware games, or just the occasional player, this is going to be one of the top must have games to come out this year. I can not wait to play.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Scorpioboync Impossible to read TV screen, tiny fonts
Honestly, I was very excited to get the game as it came out 3 days before my birthday. Well, I don't even want to play it anymore, and that is after an hour of game play. You can NOT read anything on the screen, its sooooo tiny. I have to stand two feet in front of my TV to read anything, or get up every few seconds and walk up to the TV so you can read to make a choice. I'm going to return it and they better refund me! This game is not playable if you can't read the screen! My vision is fine, I use reading glasses for up close, my distance is perfect. I don't have any problems reading/seeing other games. I have enlarged the field as big as I can from options. I have a 42" panasonic flat screen plasma and my couch is 8ft from the TV. VERY DISAPPOINTING!

I had high expectations going into this game from creations like, the last of us, tomb raider, far cry and other visually awesome games; I was extremely underwhelmed to the point that i thought i've gotten a bad copy of the game, but nope! it just looks bad. I wouldn't be surprised if they released a beta version and slapped the 70 bucks price tag on it. the texturing job is very lazy, the people sometimes twitch in the cutsceenes, they didnt take any account of what clothing/armor anyone is wearing so their hands or other body parts would go through it, if you look in the background, the far away items like trees cliffs and people, just pop up instead of gradually getting more detailed, it lags sometimes - one time it was so bad that it just kept lagging continuously, i restarted the game and it still did it - i had to leave the map completely and it fixed itsself. its freezes occasionally and you have to restart.... but you know? all of that was fine. i forgave this game for its flaws and continued to play because its truly awesome... minus the aesthetics and completeness. but now i cant ignore the fact that I PUT 40 HOURS INTO THIS GAME AND NOW MY SAVE FILE FREEZES AT THE LOADING SCREEN! IM NOT STARTING OVER AGAIN LOL .__. i dont know how to fix this problem and this game already stressed me out enough and im returning it >:0
Rated 2 out of 10 by Burtmeister Buggy and graphics worse than previous games
If you are thinking about getting this game, wait until it's been patched if it ever is. 2 weeks after release and EA/Bioware haven't even acknowledged these issues that many are having.! I have the digital download of the PS3 version. Apart from the horrendous character graphics (shiny hair, etc) there are some major bug issues. I played painfully through the minor bugs for over 17 hours. I had multiple saves and then suddenly couldn't load any of them. Every time it would lock up the PS3. Frustrated, I started a new character and 2 hours into it I get a lockup in the character dialogue window and have to restart the PS3. Every time I go into the tactical battle view, I get a black screen for about 5 seconds before being able to anything. There are so many other bugs glitches I can't see how any of this stuff made it through QC. I expected it to graphically inferior to the new consoles, but this is ridiculous. I can understand problems on a pc where everyone has different configurations. But on Xbox 360 and PS3 there are very few configurations and there is just no way these obvious bugs should have made it through, and I only mentioned a few. It only shows to me that EA and/or Bioware could care less about the older generation consoles even though we paid the same price for this games as those on the new consoles.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Lordhades181 This Game is Perfect for Dragon Age fans.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is Good Game For those who played Dragon Age on any platform, It hows Perfect Voice Acting and Lip syncing, Combat is perfect but I Rather have the Dragon age 2 Version of the combat system. The Story of this game will keep you locking in and feeling like you should replay with different possible encounters, like The elf will feel more at home with solas and the story of the game. So I recommend this game to all who loves the Dragon age Franchise and want to support bioware to bring out more Dragon age or games in general like this.
Rated 3 out of 10 by aceifer not so great
well, it doesn't live up to the first one at all. it's pretty boring after 6 hours in and is very frustrating to operate the weird new menus. not to mention trying to find the dlc content after downloading is sheer misery. what really stinks is i bought the deluxe and the hard cover for 115.00 thinking it would at least be as good as dragonage 2 but it fails there as well and is also glitchy. wait til it's used for sure. and definitely don't waste 40.00 on the hardcover for the dlc,it's not that great if you find it,and not worth the cash at all.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Brodayo Nudity = me not buying the game
I enjoy playing games just as much as any young man can. I deal with the un-needed cursing in games and the over-use of violence. I just simply call the line at the nudity. I can't believe people are buying these kind of games for teens. Lets keep the gaming real and leave the nudity for the perverts. (above it asked me "this game is perfect for" .... Perverts were the only thing I couldn't put... We need to stop objectifying women if we want respect from them....
Rated 9 out of 10 by Raduloket A Rich Return to the Dragon Age Series
I'm not going to say much about the game because you're either familiar with Bioware, or you're not. They put out a fantastic game with Dragon Age Origins, and a flawed but immersive sequel with Dragon Age 2. Inquisition is the best of both, updated for next generation consoles. The world is larger, the graphics are better, and the choices made have a far greater impact than in any previous game. Time and again, you're faced with decisions that may alienate, kill, or change forever the characters you come to know and care about in this game. I've played it for almost two hundred hours across three different characters, and I still haven't explored everything in this game. It's a mix of open world exploration and story-based RPG, something Bioware has never really attempted before(as much as I enjoyed their other games, every mission felt sort of like it was on rails until you reached the decision points), and it works very well. If there's one complaint, it's that porting backwards from the nextgen systems has left some noticeable glitches here and there--some merely annoying like an audio pop during loading screens, others serious enough to freeze the game at CPU intensive moments. Despite these issues, however, the story and characters, as well as the gameplay, were rewarding enough to play through MULTIPLE times. If you're a gamer who likes getting wrapped up in a story you control, this is your game. Masochists are free to try the higher difficulty levels, but if you're a casual gamer like me, you'll find Normal and even Casual challenging enough.
