Dragon Age: Origins (PC)

 

When was the last time you felt totally lost in a fantasy gameworld? When was the last time you played a game with such a well-crafted and enjoyable story that you knew you'd remember it for a long, long time? Dragon Age: Origins is that kind of game,...

Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening

 

There are two big problems withDragon Age: Awakening: the difficulty and the price.

Of course, the point's the journey, really, and Awakening is another chunk of BioWare's story, characters, and above all else, dialogue. I paid $40 for it and don't feel terribly ripped off, but ideally, expansion packs should either cost less than...

Dragon Age: Origins – Ultimate Edition

 

Haha you christians make me laugh

Expansive world filled with interesting locales; impressive voice acting; visceral combat; party members are multifaceted and come with unique stories; entire package offers around 80-100 hours of gameplay, double that on further playthroughs

Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening

 

Dragon Age enthusiasts should consider Awakening an essential purchase. It offers more of the same - no bad thing - in a great value package.

Loads of new toys to play with ; Some cool new characters ; 25 hours of gameplay

No sex please

Which is why Awakening isn't an expansion that'll convince Dragon Age sceptics to dip their toes in BioWare's fantasy universe. If Dragon Age didn't float your boat, neither will Awakening. Dragon Age enthusiasts, however, should consider it an...

Dragon Age: Origins

 

This trip back in time to the glory days of the PC is welcome, but it makes you appreciate the advances made by modern day RPGs Mass Effect and Fallout 3.

It is a familiar setup, one high fantasy fans will have seen before. Indeed, Dragon Age is a familiar game, one that does nothing new or groundbreaking. The PC version (the version tested), is particularly old school, with a tooltip-based user...

This is THE rpg I had been looking for

 

An amazingly immersive rpg, DA:O is not really for those who are interested in a quick and simple fantasy game. This one takes time to complete and to fully enjoy. There are plenty of side quests to complete, or a single, well written story line to...

Highly immersive, great voice acting, amazingly in-depth story line, many free addons available for dl, extra dlc available for purchase, easy to rp with, romance options available, six unique origins to choose from, pause/queue in combat

A lot of DLC may turn some away if they're unable to obtain it (although none of them are necessary, they can serve to enhance the story/characters), unable to respec a character, combat can easily be considered boring, has some bugs

Consumer review by:

this game is dumb

 

Cons: to much DLC BS and you loose content if you get it second hand. the game is very, very text heavy. there is more talking then is logical and in the end utterly unnecessary the combat system feels really shallow. and is quite simply boring. it...

the voice acting is good. some of the characters are interesting and engadging ; the choices you make in the game effect the outcome which is awesome but not original

wouldn't fit here put bellow

Consumer review by:

it's as much a movie as a game, too bad.

 

would have been better if it was more of a game and less a movie, but it's not. so, a little disappointing and probably destined for the pile.

graphics are tremendous

it's about 50% movie and 50% game. way too much cut in scenes and way too little game play. is there a way to stop all the questions

Consumer review by:

Dragon Age Origins: Golems of Amgarrak- PC

 

Those in search of a tough brawl might find nourishment in Golems of Amgarrak's slim pickings, but it's ultimately another quest-by-numbers effort that makes it very clear that the Dragon Age team's attention has now fully shifted to the sequel.
