Dragon Age: Inquisition Review - IGN

Vince Ingenito writes : When I’d finally slain my first dragon in Dragon Age: Inquisition, I felt a little sad at the thought that I was probably beginning to exhaust its seemingly endless stream of content. But then I saw the quest ticker: “Dragons Slayed - 1 out of 10.” In all my hours, I had only ever seen three. It’s a surprisingly huge, dense world, and I soon realized there were still entire sandboxes I hadn’t even set foot in. Even in my hundredth hour, I’m still discovering. Despite its less than compelling plot, I still want to go back to explore and fight through every nook and cranny of Dragon Age: Inquisition, until every dragon’s skull is mounted on my wall.

Game is getting awesome reviews! Can't wait :)

cleft51105d ago

.2 from a 9 though, EA should have brought more ads from Ign.

sobotz1105d ago

According to IGN, COD AW is a more better games than DAI

vishmarx1105d ago (Edited 1105d ago )

half asses review.
short length for such a big game.
no video review, he didnt even fight half the dragons.

ign holds back scores for a day or 2 just to test mp for cod and halo but they couldnt wait till he finished doing the rpg stuff?

if cod is about mp then this is about the rpg shenanigans .

darren_poolies1105d ago


What? They're completely different types of games, their review scores shouldn't be compared at all.

abstractel1105d ago

Thanks for the spoiler in the first line so you can't avoid it... And don't give me that "you should have known already" BS.

Gamer19821105d ago

They knocked 1.2 off score because of weak plot?? You seen the pro points for review?? Just shows how biased IGN are.. Clearly EA are not advertising enough on IGN or giving away enough freebies. Shame such a once great company has now gone this way. All they seem to care about these days is reviewing sailor moon and turtles episodes.

Games don't start at a 10 and then get minuses for every downside to them.

Also, an 8.8 is a very good score & you haven't even played it yet lol

I will be picking this up at some point. Tho I can't trust reviews from these major sites. The gameplay I saw yesterday on the twitch live stream from bioware sold me.

Magicite1105d ago

so many awesome games this fall, Im pumped!

slinky1234561105d ago

Good so far. GOTY nominee material.

die_fiend1105d ago

8.8 is hardly GOTY material is it? It looks very good but since when does a game in the 8s get GOTY?

DoomeDx1105d ago

I cannot give you any specific games, but happens before.

Also an 8.8 is very close a 9.

starchild1105d ago

What new game this year hasn't received a few 8s?

8.8 is a very good score. It's not unreasonable to think this game may end up on some GOTY lists.

illAmpRefugee1105d ago

Since theres no other games out this yr lol thts y it might win goty. who gets goty in ur opinion cod? since it got a 9? no way bro Cod only got a 9 cus its a 9 compared 2 previous cods scores and compared 2 other arena shooters. For heavens sake the campaign was 5hrs long and the co op is a joke. Yea the mp is fun and good 4 wht it aims 4 but its still a casual fest shooter tht does nothing we havent seen b4. Dont get me wrong i like cod but its not this great thing every1 is making it out 2 be. Idc wht game wins goty but dont let it be cod it simpily doesnt deserve it maybe if the campaign was longer thn maybe .Idk though cod might be multiplayer of the year though just not game of the year

Volkama1105d ago (Edited 1105d ago )

The Last of Us got a quite famous 7.5 from one site, and I hear that won a few awards.

But Bayonetta 2 got almost universal 10s, and I expect most outlets to stick to their guns on that. A good game with the added bonus of scoring some hipster points. Because Wii.

OB1Biker1105d ago

Since you decide what your own GOTY is instead of all the sites select theirs for you

Gamer19821105d ago

8.8 without EA giving IGN incentives is basically a 9.8. If you read the review you will see the score doesn't reflect the review. Which shows its defiantly slanted for some reason and when you realise IGN has a massive staff and claim to only make money from ads you realise that something is dodgy.

noctis_lumia1105d ago

the last of us say hi
gamespot gave it 8 and still won goty

wow, these reviews are coming in like hot cakes. Not surprise of the great scores. Its good to see Bio Ware back on top, now I am more excited about the new Mass Effect and the Star Wars project they are working on. The best November we had as gamers in a long time, maybe it was a good thing some games was push back til next year.

Spinal1105d ago

hmmm Curious and Curioser!!

We know that Visceral are working on a Star Wars Action game... so hopefully Bioware is making the Star Wars RPG!!! All I need is a Dragon Age/Mass effect but Star Wars with Frostbite 3.

Sketchy_Galore1105d ago

Man this is good news. I was getting a little worried. Obviously I still haven't played it for myself but coupling the (so far) overwhelmingly positive reviews with the fact that I actually liked Dragon age 2 (sorry, I should have made sure you were sitting down before saying that) I think it's a reasonably safe bet I'm going to enjoy the enchantment out of this one.

MoreRPG1105d ago

Sounds like a lot of fun

starchild1105d ago

It really does. Man, I'm going to be broke this month...
