could be better
14 December 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dragon age ; Orgins was legendary. I never played a game like that in my life !!! All the dialouges,the character development the choises you can make : the game had just so much in it !!!! I was waiting for Dragon Age 2 for quite some time, hoping for something just as good, maybe even better. I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed :( .

Although Dragon Age 2 has better graphics, more combos etc. etc. , it doesn't have the magic of the first part. Allistair,Zevran and Leliana have lost their charm in DA2. The storyline isn't good enough. In Orgins everything the characters said seemed so poetic, as if Shakespeare himself wrote it...

But DA2 had it's good sided to. I loved the gameplay, the variety of combos and spells. The action was pretty exiting. And our main character finally got a voice !!! Dragon Age 2 was pretty good, but it could have been better.
