Gamespot - Dragon Age Origins PS3 Review

When was the last time you felt totally lost in a fantasy gameworld? When was the last time you played a game with such a well-crafted and enjoyable story that you knew you'd remember it for a long, long time? Dragon Age: Origins is that kind of game, so rich and involving that you are powerless to resist its wiles and whims, so touching and triumphant that your mind and heart will be moved. In the fictional land of Ferelden, you meet memorable characters and fight for a cause you believe in, and it's this backdrop that makes developer BioWare's newest role-playing game so extraordinary. Dragon Age is more than a well-crafted story, however: It's a lengthy, intricate, and thoroughly entertaining adventure that's easy to fall in love with.

PC version is superior.
I am gonna play that one tonight on max settings :)

thereapersson5322d ago

I thought it was only a PS3 fanboy tactic to spin things by saying they are buying the PC version?

Foxgod5322d ago

I play all multi's on pc, that tactic you speak of is only used by angry fanboys who dont have a good pc to begin with.

champ215322d ago (Edited 5322d ago )

pc >>>>>>>&g t;>>ps3=360

higher fps, mods, free dlcs, better graphics, mouse keyboard support.

all at a cheapr price ;-)

peeps5322d ago

yep pc is pretty much always better (except it looks like mw2 is being majorly shafted for pc lol and by shafted i mean they're basically limiting it to the consoles features e.g. matmaking no dedi's, no mods, buying dlc etc

AKNAA5322d ago

WoW! a PS3 multiplat better than the 360 version?! now thats a shocker! Hopefully this becomes a trend, MW2, AC2...
PC version does obviously look better, but I don't care for it unless its on a console...

t8505322d ago

mw2 shafted = what the console gamers get.

so in console terms pc users didnt get shafted at all, rather the pc version will still be the best looking version.

though i do have reservations at how activision is treating the gamers(pc, 360, ps3), so many copies are sold. is it so difficult for them to give console users dedicated servers as well? specially now that they increased prices even on consoles outside the usa.

i think activision is being greedy and if they are supported it may lead to other AAA developers to treat gamers in the same way.

raztad5322d ago

I really dont get it.

3 different reviews of the same game:

1 - DA PS3 56 comments
2 - DA PC 16 comments
3 - DA Xbox 4 comments

Why is the PS3 article the most populated and commented (by far)?

On topic: I'm glad Bioware did a good job with the PS3 version. I'm seriously considering buying this game to support them, but I'm havent played anything like this before so I'm not sure. Game world setting and story are looking extremely engrossing and interesting though.

gaffyh5321d ago

I'm VERY surprised that the PS3 version is better than the 360 version, when the game was obviously developed for 360/PC first. Maybe there is hope for Mass Effect 2 on PS3 yet?

vhero5321d ago

Gamespot clearly says the PS3 version is superior to 360 version
http://uk.gamespot.com/ps3/... right near the end of the video he clearly says it looks better.

Anon19745321d ago

I've had it argued before that when comparing games on different consoles, metacritic scores are no good because sites always give games the same score. This couldn't be further from the truth. Professional reviews may not count pixels like LOT does, but when a game is clearly better on one platform compared to the other, it's reflected in these scores. When the differences simply don't matter, the scores reflect that too. Why use just one site's opinion, like LOT, when you can look at 70+ professional reviews averaged into one score?

2009 is almost over. So far the PS3 has the best exclusives and the upper hand with multiconsole releases according to metacritic. I don't know why this is so hard for people to accept.

jjohan355321d ago

I need to know whether this game is repetitive or not like some of the other popular RPG franchises. I thought Oblivion and Fallout were very repetitive, yet got overrated scores.

good to see ps3 is handling multiplats on par now

Delta5322d ago

They have been on par with some exceptions.

Delta5322d ago

You hit it right on the nose.

TheIneffableBob5322d ago

The PS3 version's graphics are better than the 360 version's, though obviously the graphics are worse than the PC version. The PS3's load times are better as well, when compared to the 360 version.

McErono5322d ago

they say: the Xbox 360 version looks positively disappointing. Textures are highly compressed and colors are washed out, though the upside is that this version maintains a smoother frame rate than on the PlayStation 3, where things might get jittery when swiveling the camera around. The PlayStation 3 version features higher-quality textures than those on the Xbox 360, better color saturation, smoother facial animations, and shorter load times. Minor visual hiccups, like corpses that disappear and reappear, are a bit more common on the PS3, however. The PC version is the superior experience, but if you're choosing between the two console releases, the PlayStation 3 has the upper hand.

LOL at Bots Mass Effect 2 and 1 will be better on PS3. Suck it.

Apocwhen5322d ago

...and this has to do with a review of Dragon Age: Orgins how?

multiplatform games looks better on flopboxtea

7ero H3LL5322d ago (Edited 5322d ago )

they didn't use an extra disc on 360's version that's what happened.

something like that should already be like an unwritten rule, when making RPGs on that specific console.
