Hawke and Hawke's family are on the run from the invading monstrous Darkspawn armies. They run into a group of pursuing Darkspawn, but are saved when a strange powerful witch called Flemeth intervenes. She then offers them a deal to deliver something for her to a band of wandering Dalish Elves, and in return, she will spirit them away from Ferelden, their country that's being overrun by Darkspawn. Hawk agrees and they are sent to a safe city far to the north, called Kirkwall. Once there, they must work for shady groups for a year in order to make ends meet, being unwanted refugees who no one else wants to hire. A year later, the war is over and Ferelden is free again, and so is Hawke whose unwritten contract with a crime syndicate has expired. However, tensions in the city are still many. The Mages hate the Templars and vice versa, the citizens hate the refugees and everybody hate the mysterious and potentially quite dangerous Qunary sect from the far north of whom a group got ...

It's no Dragon Age Origins.
15 March 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Short review. Not as good as the first, not terrible. 6/10.

Long review. So, you've bought... you did buy it didn't you? You've 'bought' Dragon Age 2 and loaded it up. What to expect? Well first of all, you're a different protagonist. The Hero from the first game (IE you) is now a story told by bards and chatty NPCs. Instead you play Hawke, a male or female human only.

The first thing you'll notice is the lack of elf or dwarf. Sorry fans of ears and fat guys, you're outer luck. I chose a rogue. That's when I noticed the next thing. No hot-switching between ranged weapons and melee. If you want to switch between daggers and a bow, pause the game and change it manually.

Of course, that's assuming you're playing on an ATI card. If you're playing on Nvidia, you're likely to be listening to the audio pause whilst the game freezes for a second. First day bugs that were there in the demo months ago.

The plot is the saving... oh wait, it isn't. The plot is there, but it's weak. The side quests are actually more interesting then the main plot.

But luckily the combat system will take your mind off the plot. The combat is waves of bad guys. Fight a bunch of thugs, then just when you think it's all over, like a space invader a new spawn of bad guys appears. I guess then the only advantage is the game is a lot simpler in combat and not as many tactics. You get ample supply of tactic rules, allowing you to 'program' your NPCs for virtually any situation. And they removed the ability to hold from individual party members. Either all your NPCs hold firm or they all move freely.

Look, overall it's not terrible. I've played far worse RPGs in my days. But I've also played better. This feels like a consolised, simplified, rushed version. It feels more like a large DLC to DA:O rather then a sequel. I gave it 6/10 as compared to DA:O, I could probably give it 7/10 if it was a stand alone game, but expectations to RPG of the Year and Game of the Year do matter.

Here's hoping they don't stuff up Mass Effect 3.
