Dragon Age: Origins, (previously known as Dragon Age), is a computer role-playing game currently in development by BioWare's Edmonton studio. BioWare has announced that the game will be released for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in late 2009.
+ Good story
-Slow and tedious combat
-Areas that go on for way too long
-Unfair scripted events
-Crappy monetary/shop system
-Lame loot and a lack of interesting and varying weapons
-Limited romance option
-Bugs and glitches
-Unreliable camera controls
Those 3 positives are what kept me coming back to this game but eventually the negatives were too much for me to take. The best way I could play this game was by taking breaks every once in a while because the game is exhausting.
Some areas go on for so long that I have to turn some music on to listen to while I do it because it never ends.
Combat is not satisfying unless I use a mage since the mage has so many useful spells. And the lame loot you get from slain enemies don’t make up for it.
The mage is also fun. Can turn invisible to scout out some areas. But because the game is scripted sometimes the invisibility becomes pointless. The game detects you even if the enemies don’t.
The game is not open world. Instead you fast travel from area to area with some random encounters in-between.
I do prefer it to its two sequels though.
(I am playing Torchlight 2. I don’t know the story, it doesn’t have amazing characters. But it is very satisfying to kill enemies and loot them. Cool weapons and items. Its colorful. Fast paced. And has some sweet mods)
A fantastic RPG game that is defiantly worth the money! An acceptable big world, and you choices matter, even the smallest ones!
The only bad thing i have to say about it is the lack of different armours and styles of armours.
If there had been more variation of armours and if the game-world had been sightly bigger, then it would have got a 10/10, but it will have to settle on a 9/10 this time!
