Geek Revolt writes "Dragon Age 2 isn’t a terrible game; don’t believe the users of Metacritic. Although, there’s one thing that’s stopping it from being a great game, it’s the city of Kirkwall and it’s surrounding areas. I understand what Bioware was trying to achieve, but the recycled environments make the game feel like a chore. Where’s the sense of adventure, the thrill of going to a new city? Final Fantasy XIII’s no town approach is actually better than being forced to constantly back track the same dusty streets, at least in that game you were always moving forward."
