If you look at the price tag alone, you would think that Dragon Age: Awakening lies somewhere between a full game and an expansion. While this is partially true in that Awakening is as long as most full priced games, you still need to have Origins...

It’s not terrible. There are some interesting things to the game and it can be fun messing with new abilities. But the game is too short to deliver on any of its potential, too easy and, in the end, does not deliver the impact it should. The game...

The Blight is over, the Archdemon fell, and the Darkspawn was defeated. Depending on how the first game ended, there were a number of different ways the above statement could have unfolded, but the outcome was inevitable. So is the tale of Dragon Age:...

Let me tell you right now: Justice is "that one BioWare NPC" in Dragon Age: Origins -- Awakening. You know who I mean; how in every BioWare game one of your party members utterly breaks out to become a bizarre and awesome character. For the Baldur's...

It should come as no surprise to fans of the original game that Dragon Age Origins Awakening is going to give you more of what you want. There's an epic story with choices that really matter, fantasy combat with loads of amazing enemies, and a deep...

In Dragon Age Origins, BioWare struck pay dirt; creating an epic fantasy world within which gamers love to play. Ferelden was rife with dangers and stories that made it a treat to play through several times, endearing players to the interesting...

For $40 you get about 13 hours of gameplay and new talents, abilities, weapons, and armor. I think it’s fair value–if you loved Origins. I liked Origins, as its review will attest, but I don’t think I would spend my gaming budget on...

International Review By Magnus.de on 100

Die Verderbnis ist aufgehalten, die Dunkle Brut geschlagen, der Frieden in Ferelden wiederhergestellt - so schien es zumindest am Ende des grandiosen Rollenspiels "Dragon Age: Origins" von Bioware. Doch Pustekuchen: Im Addon "Awakening" steht die Welt...

BioWaren Dragon Age: Origins oli vuoden 2009 hienoin roolipeli ja miltei kuluneen vuoden paras peli. Paljon palkintoja ja kehuja saanut roolipelieepos on saanut viime marraskuussa tapahtuneen julkaisun jälkeen jo kolme ladattavaa laajennusta. Nyt...

Ihan loppuvuodesta vuoden roolipeliksi keulinut Dragon Age Origins oli pikkuvioista huolimatta juuri sitä mitä Biowarelta on totuttu odottamaan. Vaikka peliin sittemmin tarjottu maksettu lisäsisältö ei ole aina ollut ihan...

De rpg van het jaar 2009 Dragon Age: Origins lijkt alweer jaren achter ons te liggen door een aantal andere grote rpg’s zoals Final Fantasy XIII en Mass Effect 2. Maar desalniettemin blijft Dragon Age een geweldige rpg en sommige mensen zullen nog...

International Review By GamePlayer on 40

Egentligen är Awakening en ruskigt bra expansion, i teorin åtminstone. I praktiken är den däremot inte alls så bra som man kunde tro. Inte för att det inte finns en ordentlig och välskriven handling, att det inte...

Selvom jeg ikke anmeldte det oprindelige Dragon Age fra Bioware spillede jeg det selvfølgelig... Ligesom jeg spillede Baldurs Gate x 4, Neverwinter Nights x 3, Mass Effect x 2. Bioware er en institution indenfor PC spil og deres særhed er vel...

Bioware har hittills inte gjort ett rollspel som lämnat mig oberörd. Efter att ha suttit ned med Awakening är det dock ett som står klart: alla utom de mest hängivna fansen kan strunta i det här. Ridå upp. I den...
