Rated 10 out of 10
by FableFreak One Of The Best RPGs ive ever played
Bioware is awesome. They greatly impressed me on Dragon Age: Inquisition. An outstanding RPG. Just Like the Mass Effect Trilogy & Dragon Age Origins & Dragon Age 2, ive spent hours-upon-hours playing this game. You get to pick what race...for example (Human, Dalish which is a Elf, Dwarf, And for the first time ever a Qunari!) ,what fighting style..for example ( Warrior, Mage, and Rogue) what gender, name, etc. I loved the combat and breathtaking lands, very well done and thought of. Dragon Fights are Grand! I loved fighting a dragon until it was just me standing and finally slewing the beast and gaining the loot. Everything is fun to fight but I like the dragon fights the most personally. You can craft armor and weapons which is awesome to. You cannot miss this game! lol. Truly worthy to anyone's RPG collection.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Laxboy247 Really good game
Dragon age inquisition is an awesome game. It is different from Skyrim in a lot of ways. My favorite thing about this game is the party member and the decision making. I love the decision making because it feels like I have to make a really big choice. The decision you make will affect your gameplay either by making one of the characters not like you or having someone that you like die. They did really good job on the graphics and fighting too. The only things I don't like about this game is that you have to save up points to launch a mission. That really annoys me because it takes forever to get points and I'm not a patient guy. The last thing I don't like about this game is the mounts. I don't like the way they feel when you're riding them but thats something small. Overall I'm giving this a 9/10 because no game can be perfect.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Takwin Bioware is back and they delivered a gem
Lose yourself in a gorgeous massive open world, with many different stories to follow and tales to be forged. The Skyhold fortress, mission map, party system, crafting system - all excellent. The voice acting is great. Your party members have a LOT of variety in personality and you have at least 2 of each class, plus yourself, to field a party of 4, so you can play it your way and change as the situation dictates.
The great mix of Skyrim-type action RPG and slower, turn-based RPG like Transistor and similar to Fire Emblem. It's a little more action-y than Origins, and even though I generally prefer pure turn-based games, I was entertained and engaged with the combat system throughout the game.
Rest assured, a stunning success like this shows that Bioware is back after the SWTOR mistake (we all wanted KOTOR 3) and the misfire at the end of Mass Effect 3 (which I still loved anyway). Now, we can all look forward to Mass Effect 4, and whatever else Bioware has in store for us.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ShenGuardian Great game, perfect for gamers to get lost in.
I have played a few hours of this game and there is so much to learn and do. I compare it somewhat vaguely to the open-world epics of the Elderscrolls series, but the combat and character progression is more along the lines of what sets this amazing game apart. The graphics truly give the game its appeal, and the gameplay is smooth and easy to learn through a small tutorial at the beginning of the game.
In short, if you've got the time to spare, this is definitely a great medieval-genre lovers game to get lost in.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Cricket69 WARNING! Game killer bugs
I had played 160+ hrs. and was loving it...until an inventory bug ruined it. It is a known issue to EA and there are many forum posts about it. At some point my inventory disappeared and I couldn't pick up any new items because it seems like the invisible/unmanageable items are still in there clogging things up, even though the item counter is well below full. At 1st I still had equipped items, but then it started taking those, too (no weapon, no armor, no way to get new). I went through the cumbersome EA support experience only to be told that they consider it a local issue and there is no assistance. After several months of people posting the issue they don't seem to even have a clue what causes the corruption. I kept trying to deal with it so I could finish the game, but the issue has left my character unplayable. I even replayed several hrs. from a previous save, but several more hrs. in the issue reappeared and continued to deteriorate.
Rated 1 out of 10 by DLxRampage Nothing what I expeceted
I was highly anticipating this game through ads and that and from the start up with customizing your character I thought the graphics were highly good with all the expressions and face lines etc etc but I'll tell you that ends right there. You get into the game the graphics look like something from 360 when it was first released between the wild life looking very blockey to the 2d dimensional walls. A majority of the time the characters lips didn't even match with the voices, gameplay was absolutely boring you use RT constantly to use your sword nothing else and X an Y for your special powers.... Whoopie sounds intense, and your character has this curse that he got struck with when the entire town came under fire from some u godley figure and you have to beat this ghost up and that one and stand by it and press A to seize the vortex and get some cheap cinematic movie. I would deff not buy this at full retail was not even worth my time.
Rated 2 out of 10 by ASJ1 Weak
Simply... it's a pretty weak game. The story is incredibly weak, and dialog are always ... "I would be honored", "Okay lets do that", and "Well if I have to". That being said if you have any interest in playing as an evil or mean character then DONT buy this game. The main protagonist's lines are pretty bland no matter how you build your character or choose your dialog. Love interests are boring, and the majority of party members just got on my nerves. And the dark overtone from the previous games have been removed or extremely toned down. As for gameplay it's a large amount of MMO style fetch quests, and the combat... hold the button to continue attacking. Wow. How exciting. At least in games like Dragon's Dogma there was combo system that made things a bit more lively. And much like that game you'll be walking for long amounts of time while doing nothing, but fighting with the terrain (walking uphill is the biggest enemy in this game). As for sound I rarely hear the soundtrack while adventuring and there are weird instances were walking sounds become quite loud for no reason. The removal of the more cinematic conversations from the previous games, along with the less stylized art direction make game feel much more generic. Honestly find something better to play than this piece of junk.
Rated 0 out of 10 by shadyassassin93 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ThirdTreetotheright 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.
Rated 1 out of 10 by djdbo10000 Waste of Time and Money.
Here's my experience with this game: Purchased the game new from Gamestop and was excited to get started on what was supposed to be a long journey. Well it was sort of a long journey but it wasn't a good one. i got home installed the game and started playing. Everything was fine and dandy until a few days or about 10-15 hours of gameplay. I went to start my game up one day and it froze while loading. I would never imagine that this problem would plague the game for my entire future with it. So, i started looking up the problem online. Seemed to be a persistent problem so there was a plethora of information on the matter. Many people had different so called "solutions" to the problem, so i began to try them out. I hard shutdown my One by pressing the power button for about 10 seconds. Then I unplugged the power source and let the console sit for about 30 seconds. Tried the game out but no luck. Next I tried some ideas involving clearing blu-ray persistent storage, and clearing local saved games storage. Neither of these worked for me. So now it was time to completely uninstall the game and delete my saves and try to just completely start over. I was a little disappointed that i was going to lose my time already put into the game, but i had no choice as i said i bought the game new. So i completely wiped the game from my console and turned it off. Started her back up and reinstalled the game. This time i let the game completely finish installing before i started it in hopes that this would solve the problem. Needless to say the same freeze occurred. If you value your time and hard earned money I wouldn't waste either on this piece of garbage. I have now wasted hours just trying to get this game to play.
