Dragon Age Origins
Simply Amazing, like a book you can't put down.
I bought this game used for like $6 and as with all used games, it's hit or miss on how good they are. This was the best $6 I ever spent, and I can't wait to see what I will find with Dragon Age 2 . It literally feels like a book, or even a movie playing out before you. The level of immersion you feel with your character is like nothing I have ever experienced in my many years of gaming, and the NPC character development, and back story has depth, and realism that fits with the overall story line. Simply Fantastic, from beginning to end. I HIGHLY recommend this title to anyone into RPGs. Stop reading his review and go get it already!!
nice job bioware
i absolutely love this game it is one of the the best action rpg's I have played. At the beginning you choose one of six origin stories a human noble, dalish elf, city elf, elf mage,dwarf noble and dwarf commoner. depending on which you choose it affects how charcters react to you. It has a strong story where there is a blight spreading and you become a grey warden and try to stop the blignt and kill the archdemon. the combat and controls are great however sometimes the power wheel is a little unresponive. the graphics are a little dated but you will forget about that once you play the game. the voice acting is all very well done which is a good thing because alot of the game is dialog one thing that i dont like is your character has no spoken dialog. the characters that you meet throughout your journey are all well written. the replayability to this game is unbelievable there are so many things that you can do so many different ways that will affect how the story unfolds, and there are six origin stories. trust me when I say this is a great game and you do not want to pass it up.
This game is just plain amazing , get it if your into rpgs , the second one sucked tho , the replayablitily of this game is out of this world , beat it atleast 12 times and had fun each time , and the dlc are fun also
Ignore the CoD fanboys, this is a GREAT GAME!
The people who rate this game badly don't understand the real appeal of this game. They don't care about the story, or the character development. All they really care about is the combat. THIS IS AN RPG. And it is very much one of the greatest RPGs ever created.
Don't Read The Bad Reviews!
Ok, I picked this up about a month ago and already have over 50 hours in this game. I don't understand how any of these other reviewers can not like this game. IT IS PHENOMENAL! Awesome soundtrack, fun combat, cool bosses, and an AWESOME story. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone into the RPG genre. Yes the graphics aren't the greatest but the game is about 3 years old. I would recommend the PC version over the 360 version because of better graphics and more camera positions. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT IS A MUST HAVE
This Game is Awsome! Don't belive the bad reviews.
This game, Dragon Age Origins, is awsome. Some people have been saying that it isn't great, but I say their just master gamers looking for the most intence game and being picky about everything. When it goes to a cut scene you acctually choose what to do, it dosen't make you do something. If you die, you can choose to quit or move to the last save. The storyline is ineresting and the graphics are really good, accept for the mouth movement. You can make your character's face and hair and wether it's boy or girl. You choose you class and pearson type (Human, Elf, Dwarf) as well. There are manny other things I can say about this game, but I will just say that this is an awsome game. And if you don't belive me, try it yourself. And if you like this game, look at my recomendations.
A perfect mix of combat, strategy,and role playing
10 out of 10
Time Spent:40 to 100 Hours
The Bottom Line:"Amazing"
This game is one of my favorite RPGs so far. There are so many paths, role playing options, and endings to it you'll never be able to do everything, unless you have no life like me. :P One of the best dark fantasy games out there. It can be difficult to master the combat, but once you have the fights get VERY epic.
One of the interesting things of dark fantasy they added in Dragon age is the fact that Elvs are no longer immortal and are shorter that average. As for role playing the text options are by far the best. For one you get so many, and they say exactly what you pick instead of something like what you pick as in Mass Effect.
The look of the game is just as good. I also like how your party members will start talking wile you are traveling through a dungeon or a city. Often resulting in an argument based on choices you've made. I recommend buying this game and that it is much better that the second dragon age.
Stop hateing on this game
OK ghrapics are not every thing for a D**n game, i think people need to play the game for the game not for the ghriapics to enjoy the d**n game i mean if you only care about grhapics for a game you wont have as many games in ur collection. I still play ps2 games i have 80 ps2 games that does not have good ghrapics but i still play them cause i enjoy my ps2 and its games. my Fat ps2 is 11 yrs old and still works, get over the ghrapics and play the the d**n game and enojy playing it
Not great but still good
To start off with in my own opinion i love this game though i admit there are a few flaws. The graphics arnt great, and the fighting is kind of dull, not to mention that the talent trees are kinda lame, and if you want to understand everything someone says you should really play this game with the subtitles on, and the difficulty setting the fights are kinda one sided so you wanna go to an easy setting if you dont wanna die every half hour or so but if you can stand those quirks its a good game. remember this is my opinion and i hope it helps.
yikes, dude. :/
yooooo dude :/ Just like on another review, I didn't like it from the start. The fight scenes looked sooooo boring and unappealing; like whelding a sword in.... slow.....motion. Too many cut scenes with their 2002-like graphics. So many 8-10 ratings on this game and are you serious, bro!? Dudes, for $15 you can pick up Fable 2 and Bioshock and have 2 great games right there. Dragon Age? Don't even try it.
