Dragon Age Origins: Awakening Review

 

Dragon Age: Origins was easily the best RPG for 2009. Awakenings is its first real expansion, and we'll tell you whether it's worth the money for fans of the game.

Dragon Age had me really get in touch with my inner D&D, and the Awakening expansion pack just furthers it. Being able to level up higher, finding and using rare and powerful equipment, and fighting the Darkspawn, this expansion pack adds to the fun....

Dragon Age Origins Review

 

Bioware's latest RPG.

In a year where there is no official numbered Final Fantasy, RPGs like Dragon Age Origins have been popping up to satisfy gamers. Already the game is picking up nominations for game of the year and RPG of the year. For fans of Bioware games, D&D style...

Dragon Age 2: Mark of the Assassin

 

I wasn't exactly kind to the Legacy DLC for Dragon Age 2, and with Mark of the Assassin, EA and Bioware thankfully ditched trying to build Hawke's character up as the savior of Kirkwall, and instead have thrust your character in to a more political...

A better package than Legacy, Mark of the Assassin has a great story to tell and is worth picking up if you're a fan of the Dragon Age franchise.

Dragon Age 2: Legacy

 

Playing through Dragon Age 2 was a chore for a lot of people, others have been quick to forgive Bioware for delivering a product that didn't seem up to their normal standard of quality. I find myself in the latter group, but still maintain that they...

This DLC is for those who're dedicated to the Dragon Age brand and that's about it. This short addition does a little to flesh out the Hawke story, but doesn't have the impressive scale that some previous Bioware DLC had.

Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening

 

When you just can't get enough Dragon Age. Returning to the world of Dragon Age was like slipping on your favorite comfy t-shirt. The game had grown on me back...

Solid story ; Plenty of new quests ; New spells, abilities and more ; Cool new locales

Quest management ; Minor glitches ; No DLC armor support

Returning to the world of Dragon Age was like slipping on your favorite comfy t-shirt. The game had grown on me back in the fall when it was released, and after surviving the onslaught of early 2010 releases getting back to the game was definitely a...

Dragon Age: Origins Awakening

 

A BrutalGamer.com review. I should probably start this review off saying that I am a big BioWare fan. I cracked out on Star Wars: Knights of the Old

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 3200 Microsoft Points for it and don't feel terribly ripped off, but ideally, expansion packs should either...

Dragon Age: Origins -- Awakening R..

 

It's not as polished as Dragon Age, but any fan of the main game shouldn?t miss this worthy extension of the storyline.

A host of new characters, skills, and storylines that carries the world of Dragon Age forward in a meaningful way

Feels like it was rushed to market; frustrating bugs, plotlines that don?t feel fully developed; distinct lack of play-balancing that makes this a far easier game than Origins on the PC

It all makes for something of a schizophrenic experience that ultimately makes Awakening feel like it would have benefited greatly from an extra month or two of development time. For fans of Dragon Age it's still worth playing, but let's hope the next...

Dragon Age Origins: Awakening (Xbox 360) Review

 

The expansion pack offers even more excitement and great play in the fantasy world, allowing you to ignore its slight shortcomings.

Perhaps the story and characters aren't as engrossing as the first game. But Awakenings remains a top-notch RPG that deepens your experience in this fantasy world and you can't help but admire the detail BioWare put into its development. The graphical...

Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening

 

Spoilers for Dragon Age: Origins ahead.

Awakening is never a bad game. It's never just an average game. I just expect more from BioWare, and I wish they had spent more time developing the expansion to one of the best RPGs in recent years. As is, the expansion has some weak spots. By the end,...
