Dragon Age Inquisition
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My friend had bought the game and kept saying I needed to try it. I was a bit hesitant because I had seen parts of previous DA games and was not impressed. But I borrowed it nevertheless since I had finished Far Cry 4. After the first initial intro to the game, I found that I was enjoying the game more than I had originally thought I would. Needless to say, I have already beaten the game and waiting for hopefully for a DLC soon. The missions are fun, the character banter and interactions had me laughing at times, and I loved the lands you get to explore!! Bioware has accomplished much with this game!!
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
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.
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.
