Dragon Age 2 Review


Well, i just beat Dragon Age 2. Literally, as i am making this post, the credits are rolling. I played a Mage, Courted Merrill and did my best to be friends and not rivals of all of my companions, and did a fair enough job, they all were alive and sided with me at the end. Now, i hope that didn’t give too much away. If anyone has played the first one or Mass Effect, that sort of ending didn’t really give anything away. In light of this, i will try and talk as little as i can though-out the course of this blog.

My opinion on the game was that i liked it. I enjoyed it a great deal more then the first. This one is in many ways an improvement on the first. It may be because i haven’t played the first in a while, but the things that really different for me was that in the first one, i was always struggling. It was a great deal more difficult to stay alive, and although i felt a lot more powerful in this one, it didn’t seem like i was over-powered. I did struggle at times, but not at every turn like i did in the first one.

One of the big complaints that i heard about this game was the repetition in the ‘dungeons’. whenever you went on a quest in a certain area, the dungeon was always the same, with a few areas quarantined off. That didn’t really seem to bother me much, because getting from A and B may have been routine, the story around it was always different. The spiders did bug me though, why oh why did they have those sharp fang thingys coming out of their butts?

I am definitely going to play through this game again, and i’ve already decided as a Rogue. Not right away mind you, i have to beat the first one first, and likely beat Mass Effect 2 again before i do that….but not until after i watch the new episode of Doctor Who…or perhaps during.
