CheatCC says, "Fantasy games may not be as popular as they once were, but even gamers who roll their eyes at elves and dwarves owe it to themselves to delve into Dragon Age: Origins. While many familiar fantasy elements are present, most aren't what you think. BioWare excels at turning the familiar on its pointed ear and presenting things in ways that are completely different than what you expect. The story we've experienced thus far is dark, bloody, mature, and surprising. Anyone who enjoys complex, compelling storytelling and deep RPG gameplay will find something to love about Dragon Age: Origins."
