Engaging battle system.
Amazing character relationships and development.
Tons of story paths.
Fast & Fun Combat with Strategic Appeal.
Kirkwall is Reminiscent of Baldur's Gate II's Athkala.
Spectacular writing and voice acting bring each character to life.
Smaller world to explore.
Less room for customization than in DA:O and level reuse.
PC players lose large battlefield view of combat.
Final battle falls flat.
Multiple elements have been inexplicably simplified over the original.
