Default Dragon Age: Review

My review of Dragon Age: Origins is

7.5 / 10


Good but not great


The story is good, but again not great, I played through and of the 8 different choices of race + class... I don't think I'll play through again.. Game play was fun though, a little too basic...

I'd say more about the story but it seems like if i say anything I give plot away

I truly think this game won't go down as a great...

You get some of the best armor straight off, with a free download, that comes with the game.

The only thing this excites me for is that the armor is also going to be in Mass Effect 2

To be honest, the game kind of reminded me of Never Winter Nights...

This game had 9s across the board (Average score of 91 from Metacritic) >_>...... "I truly think this game won't go down as a great..." is very arguable. Although, if this is just an opinion, score is fair enough as you have the right to your opinion.

The game has gotten a weaker score on consoles, but not more thank 0.5 less than the pc version. I'm assuming you played it on a console.

The console version is also easier and more combat focused. The graphics aren't quite as good but the rest for the game is as the pc version. I recomend the pc version for those who want a bit more tactical play and the console for those who want face to face non stop combat control.

About the story. It is DEEP. They have worked a hell of a lot on it and it is one of the games that has been worked most with, storywise.

An awesome game all in all

This game is nothing like Oblivion. Its better to compare it to knights of the old republic as that has the sort of same gameplay. Perhaps even Baldurs Gate.

After watching a review I could never play it on console after seeing the PC version. Console looks too damn ugly and PC just seems to have the more features even though they are close enough the same.
