GameSector - Retrospective Review: Dragon Age Origins

GameSector writes: Ferelden is a world inhabited by arls, kings, darkspawn, and grey wardens; each of which, have helped forge Dragon Age into 2009’s RPG of the Year.

Enter our review of Dragon Age: Origins and discover why it was named 2009’s RPG of the Year, and many others.

Here's my retrospective:

-Terrible main campaign
-Great gameplay
-Poor class variety
-Poor race variety
-Poor weapon variety
-Poor armor variety
-Poor enemy variety
-Poor spell/ability variety
-Awful morality system (rude=evil, polite=good)
-Worst narrative structer in a game in 15+ years
-Horridly cliched, unispired setting
-really ugly textures
-Ugly animation
-Final boss was a retextured enemy
-Kingdom only had 3 towns

That's about all I can remember.

Thankfully, aside from still looking to have litle variety, DA2 is shaping up to be a much nicer game.

... the shameless DLC-milking.

Anyone with a bit of sense will this time just wait a year until the GOTY is released for 20 bucks.

Or just pirate the DLC.
