I have to admit that Dragon Age II is not my kind of game, as I'm simply not a fan of the role-playing genre. However I must acknowledge this is still a very impressive looking game that makes good use of DirectX 11 features. The use of tessellation a...

Dragon Age: Origins was an impressive game that managed to garner quite some accolades despite its numerous flaws. Dragon Age II is a true sequel to the the marvelous original, in that it manages to bring in as many flaws as it fixes. You know, just...

Combat has been simplified as well. It’s frenetic to the point that you can essentially play Dragon Age II as an action game (I recommend playing on a console if you choose this path). Or you can pause as often as you like to survey the battlefield....

Dragon Age II might not serve up any particularly noteworthy innovations, but that doesn't stop it from being a thoroughly entertaining RPG brimming with Bioware's usual attention to detail in terms of the plot, character relationships and quests.The...

Heroes often come from auspicious origins – that was the story told in the first Dragon Age game as players gained insight into the world of the game thanks to an eternal conflict between inhuman darkspawn and the people of Thedas. We came to see the...

Dragon Age 2 doesn't quite feel like a sequel. It feels more like a side story rather than a proper follow up to the first game. You are just limited to the city of Kirkwall which makes you feel like you are exploring the confines of a well crafted...

o what to make of Bioware’s Dragon Age II? Is there a way to summarise its good attributes and its odd failings? Dragon Age II is an excellent RPG by any objective standard. It has a great story, great characterisation, great intrigue, replayability, and atmosphere in spades. But PC gamers who were perhaps holding out for the title to breathe life back into their medium, they may be...

Sequels are such a mixed bag. So many great new IPs have died out thanks to poor sequels, but on the other hand a lot of forgettable games have gotten great sequels that made them recognized. You can’t forget the Activision model of business either...

Dragon Age 2 offers fast paced action-adventure role-playing with visual splendor courtesy of DirectX 11. It generally performs well, but it is one of the more demanding games in circulation today. Right now, you will get the best Dragon Age 2...

So what we have here is a Choice and Consequence game with strong Narrative, but no Consequence and superficial Choice. The skill trees offer even more potential strategies than it’s versatile predecessor, none of which can be used properly because...

Dragon Age 2 Introduction:Like most fantasy novels the story starts out being told from a third person limited point of view, Varric a dwarf in the main character’s party, is being interrogated by what is soon identified as a lady seeker who’s dressed...

I struggle to say this, because Dragon Age: Origins was a contender for Game of the Year 2009 in my book, but its tepid and disjointed follow-up is nothing short of a disappointment. I hesitate to call it a terrible game as well, because it isn’t...

With Dragon Age: Origin, Bioware made a game that felt very much like a last hurray into the world of traditional computer RPGs. There were highly tactical battles, an epic story, and branching conversation paths (staples of Bioware's games). It...

Dragon Age II is the second main feature game developed by BioWare in the Dragon Age series. Although it is a sequel part of the game actually takes place during the time frame of Dragon Age: Origins. You play through the game as Hawke over a massive...

It’s been only 16 months since BioWare introduced us to the magical world of Thedas. It’s a wonderful place, at least for aspiring heroes, as there’s no shortage of menacing beasts to slay or corrupt figureheads to overthrow. 2009’s Dragon Age:...

Not a patch on Origins but if you can put aside any overblown expectations you had of Dragon Age II, there is still a very worthwhile experience that fans should take away fond, if tarnished, memories from. 7.0/10Print this pageComments (0)Share this...

Over the last decade-plus, BioWare hasn't really made a bad game. Sure, there are a few people out there that just detest Jade Empire or couldn't stand the mildly-compromised action in the first Mass Effect, but most people have absolutely loved...
