Could have been great, but came out broken
rated 3.0 out of 5

If this game had been release without bugs it easily would be an 8 or 9 on my list but it wasn't. The new characters are interesting as is the story and the decisions you make as Arl. But the bugs are rampant and have not been fixed more than a month after release. Not one of them. First many people have crash issues so bad the game is unplayable. If you're lucky enough to be able play many quests are bugged so as to be impossible to complete. Finally the mechanic that controls the companions opinion of the character is buggy so that it is sometimes impossible to develop relationships with them/ complete their personal quests. Since companions are such a big part of the experience that's quite a big deal. To conclude don't buy this game at least until its patched or if you like frustration and restarting to get past bugs.

A fair review for an EXPANSION....
rated 4.0 out of 5
Eric Smith

Let me just premise this by saying that I normally do not do this. I felt it necessary because the other reviews from people either expecting to much, or those that ran through it and did not give it a fair chance. Let use not forget that this is the same developers that brought you Never Winter Nights which was way more lore based than hack-and-slash. The lore in the game as an expansion (as well as the original) is astounding. I would bet that most other reviews here did not even care about it at all, and I feel that it is one of the most important factors in reviewing a game like this. There are at least a 100 tid bits of lore and history of Ferelden spread throughout the expansion that help fill in the gaps from the first one.The story immediately grabs you, and keeps up its appeal throughout. The fact that the dark spawn show intelligence is a very interesting take for an expansion, at least I did not see that coming. I honestly believe that it could be a stand-alone game that is very interesting. Ok, so there is no romance options in this expansion! Seriously, if you care that much about that you have some seriously problems... It did not add that much to the story. You can still recruit many characters that have interesting background; and to an extent you can interact with them much to the same degree as before. I do agree that it is not as personal, but this is an expansion, not DAO2.PROS:The effort that the developers put in is evident. The graphics imo are still very good. Awesome controls like NWN and the music and sounds are awesome as ever. The character customization is actually better because they finally implemented some new armor and weapon skins (Thank God), and you can skill switch to all characters and customize their protocol in combat. If you import your character from DAO then you can see what some of your choices did when they carry over to the expansion, which is awesome! I mean, how many games actually carry over your unique choices?Those of you that played stealth oriented rogues from the first game know what I am saying when I point out there were not many damage abilities open to us, even with the assassin specialization. With the expansion they actually make the class viable in combat with many interesting and unique abilities which definitely makes the class a lot more fun to play (especially if you choose a certain specialization). CONS:The game is changed dynamically imo because they make money really easy to get, and they beefed up some classes so much with specializations that I had to play on nightmare for the difficulty to even be hard. Even then the only difficult fights where the boss encounters, and this is because I had a hard time keeping my caster alive. So that is the only reason I was harsh on difficulty. The "random encounters" where lackluster, with minimal change in scenery and content. I was almost always the same map (woods/farm) with a change between dark spawn and sometimes bandits. Also the free-form quests where kill/pick-up without much thought, but still interesting overall.The cost of this game is extreme, you actually can get 20+ hours out of it and about 60+ out or the original, but the expansion when it first came out was $** when the original was $**! That does not make sense to me, it should have only been around $**-**.OVERALL:I would like to point out that this is an EXPANSION and NOT DAO2 (which is evidently slated for next feb). And as far as an expansion is concerned this is a sold one with tons of interesting lore and plenty of different companions and new interesting enemies to fight. You can easily spend more then 20 hours trying to find every little side-quest and item hunting excursion. There are more weapons, armor, STAMINA POTIONS, and you can even rune craft some very effective buffs for your weapons AND armor. They just improved some flaws form the first game and made it a more enjoyable experience, and isnt that what everyone expects from a

.....more Dragonage. What could be better?
rated 5.0 out of 5

What could be better than getting more Dragonage! After playing Origins for four months (5 playthroughs) I couldn't be happier to get more Dragonage. I've more or less just started playing DO:A and there are quite a few quests, new places to go, and I really like the new characters especially Anders and Nathaniel. To bad they can't be romanced and that is the ONLY thing I don't like, not being able to talk to the new companions in "camp" as you could in DO:O. But, the conversations among your companions can be really funny. Also, they "talk" to each other about thier previous lives. I like how, in certain convos with NPC's, they refer back to what you accomplished as a Warden. The new spells are very interesting and fun to try out. Great new weapons and armor - especially Justice's black and red armor. Some of the fights with bosses I've been in are extremely challenging. Lots of loot and money to pickup. No more worrying about how you're going to buy those injury kits or health potions. EXCELLENT EXPANSION!

Price too high for what you get
rated 2.0 out of 5

I played and enjoyed Dragon Age Origins a lot. This expansion was disappointing. Here's why: Character interaction - I really enjoyed the interaction I had with my party members in the camp setting, talking to them, seeing what their back stories were. You get new party members in the expansion, but don't really get to know them like you do in the original game. There's no romance in the expansion, if that was your thing in the original. Depth of Story - The story is just really shallow compared to the original game. Without giving away plot points, there's not much you can say beyond that. Bugs - There's bugs. Lots of bugs. You can check the Bioware boards for specifics, but basically this expansion was rushed and it shows. The ones that bothered me most were missing sections of cut scenes where it was obvious they didn't add in the character videos for your party members. If you play, save often. The game crashes often for a lot of people, although it was pretty stable for me. Length of Game - Considering that this expansion costs only $* less than the original game, you'd think it would be longer. I'd say this expansion has about a fifth of the content the original game did, if that. The price should be about $*, rather than $*considering what you get for the money. Overall, this expansion was rushed out the door without enough bug testing and costs more than its worth. Wait for it to be bug patched and for a drop in price before you buy it.

If you liked the first one

you'll enjoy this one as more. It's basically a 15-20 hour extension of the first game. Cons: -no more romance options -you'll have to up the difficulty or not use over powered abilities like mana clash -no camp dialogue -it's expensive for 15-20 hours of gameplay (but realistically that's what, around two dollars per hour played?) Pro(s): -IT'S FIFTEEN TO TWENY MORE HOURS OF DA:O. - ability to carry your character over from the first game and see how your choices affected the world - 6 new specilizations (two per class) - higher level cap - new crafting (Rune) - new items (armor and weapons now go up to tier 9 and armor can now use runes) - 5 new party members and 1 returning member. - it seems to have fixed the memory leak bug that plagued the first (no more having to reset the game when it all of a sudden took 3 minutes for you to be able to loot monsters. If you loved the first one, you'll love this one.
