Extrem Gamer writes: "Dragon Age is an epic game. Not very many games can boast this truthfully. Reports of 60-80 hour play through times just working on the story is rare in this generation of games. Not to mention players can play through the game several times and have different experiences every time. When the game begins players have the option to choose from three different races; human, elf and dwarf. Each race has a different background story, and they all affect how the entire game world reacts to you. For example, if a player starts playing a human noble, the rest of the world will treat them with respect. However, if the player chooses an elf, the world will basically ignore you as elves are generally considered secondary citizens with some being slaves."
