Hardcore Gamer: Bioware has been saying and showing us all the right things, but one has too wonder if Inquisition has any chance of redeeming the series after Dragon Age II.

Honestly, I don't think so. Dragon Age II killed all the goodwill left from gamers of this confusingly titled franchise.

I love both, not sure why so many hate DA2 , it has its flaws but its still amazing game. Mass Effect and Dragon Age are best game series ever.

ValKilmer1356d ago

That may be so, but Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age 2 showed that BioWare could be slaves to the all mighty dollar, allowing EA to let them rush two games which should have been the best of their generation.

I didn't like the last gen games but this reboot looks great.

ME3 is hardly rushed. It's a very polished game that where its gameplay and graphics represented the series' height.

The only major complaint about ME3 was the ending to its story. It left many players confused and fans disappointed. Fortunately, I had the luxury of playing the whole series first time after Leviathan DLC and Extended Cut had come out. Which made the ending much less disappointing in that I actually enjoyed it, even if some stuff didn't make sense.

Dragon Age 2 however is completely different case. The gameplay felt a bit dumbed down from DA1. It reused levels and dungeons too many times for many missions. And the story was mostly about doing jobs for people with occasional crisis happening.

Yeah, I also don't know why so many people act like DA2 was some terrible abortion. It was no DA: Origins, but it was a perfectly serviceable and fun rpg in it's own right. It's biggest crime was that it wasn't DA: Origins. That was my biggest problem when playing it. If I had played the two games in reverse order, or not played the first at all I probably would have had a better time with the game.

I'm still a little wary of the "new" Bioware. It's a Bioware that seemed slightly too vulnerable to publisher interference on their last few offerings.

But I'm always ready for them to bounce back. Their history is impressive enough for me to always be optimistic about their games.

And in all honesty, I still loved ME3 and DA2, even if I thought they were generally inferior to most of Bioware's other games.

After their comments so far about DA3 it seems unlikely however ME3 was such a letdown yet that still got amazing reviews so who knows.

iDadio1356d ago

The ending was a let down sure and the fact that your decisions didnt really seem to matter was a massive loss of potential but overall I loved the game.

-Foxtrot1356d ago

The ending was really just the icing on the whole letdown cake

The game was such a step back, they turned the game into a massive over the top generic feeling third person action game.

Any class could manage any weapon, you didn't really need to rely on your team mates or their biotics/skills, you could go into fights gun blazing, the fighting was very accessible and dumb down....I could go on.

CaptainFaisal1356d ago

Yes i think it will, New generation means endless possibilities ! They will go crazy on this since they mainly focused on next gen. Dragon Age 2 was a bit of a dissapointment and im hoping... no im sure the devs learnt from their mistakes and will make this a BAD A## Game! ^^

I never played DA2 but loved DA Origins. What was wrong with DA2? I plan on picking it up when I buy a new 360 since mine broke

Nothing it's just that it was made with consoles in mind so if your a pc gamer it's quite bad.

TrenchaunT1356d ago

Too much is wrong with it to even explain. Download the demo on Xbox Life and you'll see it instantly. The fact that Flemeth (Morrigan's old mother, the witch of the wilds) shows up out of the blue with a boob job and disturbingly revealing outfit for an old lady seems to say it all for me. But basically the tactical gameplay, the expansive game world (including the explorable map), and the depth of character creation are all lost. I don't mind console games, but Dragon Age 2 just doesn't deserve to have the same title as Dragon Age Origins. I wouldn't pay more than $5 for DA2.

It will. I am getting good vibes from it.
