Did You Know?


Originally, the character Shale was meant to be the size of the other golems in the game. However, the developers had trouble with her fitting through doors and originally cut the character entirely. Thanks to a delay in the release schedule, they had some extra time and decided to create a new, smaller character model for Shale. This is referenced in the game as she said she was "chiseled down" by her previous owner. See more »


Leliana: Zevran, I saw you looking at the girl in town earlier.
Zevran Arainai: My dear Leliana, which girl? I saw many, and I watched them all.
Leliana: You know, the one with the... with the shoes.
Zevran Arainai: The shoes? Yes, good reference.
Leliana: Well, she also had blonde curls, worn in a long braid.
Zevran Arainai: A braid...? Ah, that one! Yes, I remember her.
Leliana: So what did you think? You seemed quite enthralled.
Zevran Arainai: Well, she was... quite marvelous, except for the butter face.
Leliana: The butter what?
Zevran Arainai: Butter face. Everything's marvelous but her face.

The ultimate review.The gameplay and amount of content are great but the narrative is surprisingly weak and uninteresting. An average, overrated game.
7 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Notice: This review is not biased. I have completed all Mass Effect games and I absolutely love them. This is my honest opinion.

I stumbled upon Dragon Age: Origins a while ago and I thought it looked really cool so i decided to buy a copy for my Xbox. Since it was made by BioWare, who made the amazing Mass Effect games and KOTOR, I thought it was going to be another great game to play. It's promotional presentation, however, deceived me.

I made my character, a Mage and I have to say really like the customization in the game. The amount of content is staggering. I started the missions and I thought it was great.

Until I began.

As soon as I was shown the game's storyline, I thought it was uninteresting. This is surprising to me because BioWare are a great company who made some fantastic games that ended up being RPG classics. I wasn't drawn to the story and it kind of bored me. I decided to stop playing as a mage and began as a warrior. That was bad too so I decided to play as a dwarf was worse.

The character voices are surprisingly weak and the characters themselves were completely forgettable. Dragon Age: Origins disappointed me. BioWare disappointed me.

Although, I did like the gameplay mechanics and its skill system despite it's repetitive aspects. The magic and warrior spells are cool to watch and to wield.

Dragon Age: Origins is the most overrated RPG I have played and that is my honest opinion. I do not know why people love it so much?

Surprisingly disappointing, uninteresting and it's fun gameplay can't save it.

Do a better job, BioWare.
