Mike Potts from The Zero Review grapples with this tough question over one of this seasons most popular games. Is it the combat? Is it the story? Is it the multiplayer?
Great game I just finished my first playthrough.. Sooo much to do its crazy
Yep, best RPG I've played in a long time. Can't wait to see the DLC. The way they set up the gameplay with the board mission configuration - it'll allow for some incredibly impressive locations if they decide to get crazy with new content.
It is definitely worth keeping. It is one of my prized games right now alongside FFXIV. The graphics are gorgeous, the gameplay is deep with strategy, the characters are interesting, the story is intriguing and the environments are enchanting. It is great RPG! I am sure it will only be surpassed by Witcher 3 in the near future. Mass Effect is too far so we cannot say anything about that for now.
I seriously love it. It's the "classic" western RPG I've been waiting for. I'm on RE pretty hard right now but as soon as I finish my Chris play through I'll be hopping back on. Already have 60 hours and I'm only 30% finished or so. I'm doing all the side missions, including shards. But as far as the question of the article goes, should I keep it?? If I complete it with upwards of 120 hours, I'll sell it, satisfied that I got more than my money's worth
62 hours in and loving it. Cant wait to see Biowares dlc plans.
Glad you guys are having fun with it. I honestly with I was able to.
Lol. I read that last sentence in Mike Tyson's voice due to you typing, "With", instead of, "Wish." OT: I'm keeping the game because I'm just gradually chipping away at it.
Dont know... but this game is looong... i will keep it until i finished it 100%... a couple of years maybe. Lol
Funny how I was just thinking this myself, god knows why I can't get into this game. I LOVE all types of RPG's including Mass Effecf. I think I'm going to give this game one last chance, if not probably sell it for $40 on eBay =\
Glad I'm not the only one! Its just not jiving with me at all. I just keep thinking "I'd rather just play Mass Effect, Skyrim, and Diablo..."
I was the same way with it. Basically forced myself to continue through the first 20ish hours or so, and then really got into the game.
Yep, I loved it just before and during The Hinterlands but once I got passed that, things started to get boring for me. I played the hell out of it and now I can't bring myself to continue. The thing that killed it for me was the section you have to find the killer at a ball. Jesus Christ that went on forever and I turned it off several times. I also don't like the convoluted crafting system. Everything just feels overly complicated and tedious.
I'm in the same boat as well lol. I LOVED Origins and bought this day one, put about 5 into it and i'm struggling to go back it.
Lol wow...and here I thought that it was me. I want to like it but nothing about the game is grabbing me in.
Yeah, count me in, same here but I'm glad some are able to enjoy it;)
As soon as I got to sky hold it really took off. It's really good and I consider myself a shooter and horror guy primarily. But I do love me some good ass rpg if it's done right.
Same here for me, I don't have time to force myself to like this game. So I sold it back with hopes of picking it up for $15-20 down the line and giving it another shot.
Yes it is, great game and is so big!!!
Still haven't started playing this or the first two. Been sitting in my Origin library for quite some time. Burning through the BioShock games first. Damn backlog.
I'm seriously thinking about getting Inquisition on Xbox One this weekend. Looks insanely fun given my love for super-long RPGs.
If you can dig super long RPG's, then get ready for the long haul! I tend to do everything when I become enticed with a game. 60 hrs in yet I barely touched the main story. I'm enjoying the "foreplay" before I get into the thick of it
No, if you have already beaten it and done everything in it. I would just keep it to have it.
I can't wait until I get paid so I can buy this. I should have bought this instead of Dying light even though I love Dying Light. I should have waited until Evolve comes out and bought Dying Light. oh well. I am going to trade in that trash that is Advanced Warfare and get Dragon age
Honestly it's hard for me to get into most RPGs these days. Ever since experiencing Zelda OoT i've always wanted open worlds/RPGs to try and strive for the same principles of level design where the main tool for navigation is the world itself due to being expertly crafted with large and unique pieces of landscaping, terrain, and landmarks/monuments meaning all you would need is a description and you would know exactly where to go for a quest instead of having a map/floating icon telling you where to go. Then came FFXIV a realm reborn and i found that it can in fact be done very easily on a PS3 none the less with relatively low grade tech behind it. After playing that it's pretty much impossible for me to be content with other fantasy RPGs due to bland boring worlds(including DAI) they have no excuse at this point for such boring level design
I just beat Dragon Age on Sunday. I really enjoyed it, and now is when I have to decide if I should keep it or trade it in for something new. There are a few achievements I missed (finishing on hard and highest difficulty, killing all 10 dragons, making all tear 4 armor, fully upgrading a throne, enter the heart of the Solassan temple, and getting 10 agents, as I only got 9) I completed all of the inner circle requests, and most all of the side quests. I never even booted up multiplayer once. The time on my save said 120 hours of play, although I am really skeptical of that. I thought I put in about 80 to 100. It was very enjoyable throughout, for me.
