Dragon Age Inquisition
This is honestly a GREAT game
The game is 100% good I only had a couple bugs with1 power and that was Varrics backflip cluster shot mixed with his focus ability where he creates 2 more of himself more funny then anything though!
I played 1&2 and enjoyed them but saw their flawes and this is a fresh and good start. The companions for this game were biowares best cast to date (they just needed a Garrus:)
The combat system is not boring like the guy who gave this a 4 said. You do block with a warrior by getting the ability in the skill tree, you stealth and evade as a rogue, and as a mage you shouldnt need to unless you get the arcane warrior which turns you into a upclose mage.
And finally the graphics dont expect mind blowing graphics because it is built on frostbite 3 engine same as battlefield 3 not 4 but it looks good and doesnt take you out of the game and they did amazing work.
When BioWare first dropped hints on the game, I was... less than impressed. After all, what is Dragon Age to Mass Effect? Well I was sorely mistaken. As it got closer to November 18th, I got more excited. I had an Xbox One, I was ready for whatever this game could throw at me. Then I got it home and played it. Since then, I've played 6 playthroughs, each one drastically different from the next. This game keeps me coming back to it and I love it. It's even turning my roommates who didn't really enjoy Origins or DA2 into near fanatics. This game is one of a kind, it pulls at the heartstrings and gives me all the fun I could have exploring Thedas. It's like Dragon Age and Skyrim had a baby. A much prettier, more fun to have around and witty baby. BioWare, I take my hat off to you. Incredible game.
I am having sooooo much fjn with thks gamw. Lots of things to do, areas to explore, hours and hours of gameplay. There are a couple of bugs like the sound may cut out and you'll have to pause and unpause the game, but other than that no complaints. Also love that you can pick what you want to do and won't lose a location due to the story. You can always fo back to finish your sidequest. All in all, very pleased. Nicely done, Bioware.
Inquisitor for the win
With over 200 hours in this game I can say that this game has great replay value. The combat mechanics can become dull at times, however the interesting lore, scale and beauty of the world as well as humor make this game stand out.
This game helped turn around a series after Dragon Age 2 being a bit of an upset as far as the story goes. This time around we see the beautiful graphics, great music and voice acting, good gameplay as well as a large world with different landscapes, enemies and quests to enjoy. It was nice to see returning characters from the past few games, but sadly while the other games are referenced, they don't seem to play a large role onto the outcome of the game all that much. They make no notion of your first character who defeated an Arch-demon, yet apparently Hawke is the biggest thing. While I guess it makes sense to the stories context I wish they would've done a little more about the worlds state after the last 2 games (besides the rift or rebellion). While combat is smooth and fun in this and the targeting makes it a lot easier to fight with range attacks, it still sometimes hard to target the attacker right in front of you because it wants to focus on the furthest one. They completely took away stats progression and just made it all about the abilities. In the abilities we see the usual attacks, upgrades and passive abilities. The passive ones have the added benefit up upgrading Dexterity, Strength or any attribute you want to focus on for your class. There are 3 specializations for each class, but there is a downside. In order to choose one you must gather the required materials which can become tiresome and very annoying due to the lack of direction of obtaining them or location. While Skyhold is a cool base of operations they tried to add esthetics which didn't really help in any way other than making a few minor things change only in looks. I wish they did something close to Mass Effect 3 making the more requisition orders you filled the better the army you had. The main thing that keeps you glued to the game is the storyline. Its solid, lasts awhile and actually gives you a sense of accomplishment when you complete it. While there are love interests in this game I believe the companions are a bit lacking. For the most part they don't really differ as far as abilities go. People like the Iron Bull does not live up to his name and seems to be squishier than a mage. The main irritation I had was the lack of healing spells, because you share the healing potions with the whole party and companions tend to go through them rather quickly you find yourself walking into too many fights with less health than you wanted. Besides a few other minor problems this game was actually really well made, but while I think it accomplishes its main goal the game seems unfinished in a few aspects like Skyhold and others things. It almost feels like they were trying to add some much they didn't complete some things. For the record though, I'd recommend this game to all fans and any RPG fans as it is defiantly a great game.
Bioware is back
This guy who said u can't target stuff is kind of silly .. You can definetly target so not sure what he's talking about anyways onto the review. The graphics are amazing and yes I agree the in game graphics are not next gen-ish but what I like about it is that u get the feel of origins gameplay. The amount of stuff you can do in this game and how many hours you can put into it is ridiculous well worth 60 bucks when u can probably put well over a 100 hours on 1 character. This will probably be ur game of the year and it deserves to be because bioware has a gem here. This game is highly addictive and extremely fun and challenging as well. This would not be a waste on money actually probably the best 60 bucks u spent all year. Pick it up!!!
Apparently not another Dragon Age 2
From what BioWare has said this game is moving away from what Dragon Age 2 was (mindlessly spamming buttons in a world void of a story and any real meaning to what you do) and moving back to what we know and love from Dragon Age: Origins, I'm not sure what to think about this though, my deepest fear is that this is going to turn into another Fable fiasco with every game them promising "this time it will be as good as the original" with them progressively making it worse desperately clinging on to the original game pumping out cheap games with the same franchise name trying to make a quick buck. Another issue that I know alot of people are upset about Morrigan is going to be in the game but not as a companion and from what I've read she is barely going to be in the game at all. However there is going to be a multiplayer function in the game, I'm hoping this will be a squad based co-op and not another poorly done RPG turned PvP game. I'm still going to wait for more information about the game before I decide if I'm going to pre-order it, and I suggest you do the same.
This is by far the greatest RPG series I've ever played. It's one of the few games that truly lives up to its reviews. The land is MASSIVE, like 10X the size of Skyrim and beautifully breathtaking. The voice acting and graphics aren't top notch, but what does that matter when the gameplay is flawlessly executed? Anyone who likes to play a great game should pick this one up, as it's worth every single cent.
I picked dragon age up last night and have been playing it since. The gameplay, sound, and story are great. The graphics are good with the exception of the hair of characters. I feel like the hair just doesnt look right on some characters like it was lazily done but overall it doesnt bother me too much. 9/10 would reccommend.
this game was rated a 9.5 by metacritic its obviously a good game. Gameplay and graphics are phenomenal. definitely a can't miss game
