Gamespot: Dragon Age II Review

It isn't the wonder its predecessor was, but Dragon Age II is still a quality role-playing game that focuses on the element of choice to great effect.

Im really on the fence with this one actually.

Never thought I'd say that about a BioWare game..

Agent VX4649d ago

They sold their soul to "EA" and now cater to consoles.

Consoles are Killing "Great RPG Gaming", and BioWare is falling from grace. Yeap, never thought I would say that about Bioware, but so is the "real world" we live in.

Money for crap.

The only EA game I am buying this year is Mass Effect 3 and I hope that it does not have 1,000 DLCs for salle on day 1 bc I will be very mad .

For DA2 there are already 2 DLCs avaiable ,one for $9.99 a the other for like $7.

This is a huge disrespect on my book because it seems they launched an incomplete game.
If those DLCs were just to add extra stupid weapons and skins would be no much of a problem.

EA is really pushing their luck with the DLC this time. Having to pay for DLC on day one is really just wrong, and although they have a lot of little gimmicks to give away some free DLC on the Bioware social website, it is a real pain to do a bunch of nonsense (like play a boring facebook game) in order to get DLC that really should have just been included in the game in the first place.

$9.99 one is free for every new copy and $7 one was free for signature edition pre-order.

I love the game a lot better than the first IMO

Eternus4648d ago (Edited 4648d ago )

I think the game is awesome.

I love the game so far, really enjoying it. Made for consoles does not equal bad lol.

EA Made Dragon Age and Mass Effect DLC Free On PC By Retiring The BioWare Points System

Immersed Gamer writes: "In order to replace the oppressive BioWare Points system, EA is making a large portion of the Mass Effect and Dragon Age DLC catalogs free for PC users.

For those of you blissfully unaware, EA and BioWare employed a payment system called BioWare Points on PC to pay for DLCs for titles like Mass Effect and Dragon Age. While PC gamers have been struggling with BioWare point’s unfair conversion rates and extremely scarce and cost-detrimental sales.

Console players have been allowed to purchase content in pieces through the appropriate Sony and Microsoft shops. For real money, and not BioWare monopoly bucks. In turn, console players missed out on some DLC content, such as Mass Effect 2 pre-order bonuses that have been repackaged into a DLC pack."

Great response to Ubisoft and their disgusting behavior. Ubisoft decide to take away DLC from people who paid for it, while EA give it for free to everyone when they realize their system sucks. Who would have thought that EA of all companies would be showing Ubisoft how it should be done (even if this is EA fixing their own mistakes as well).

Mobis-New-Nest501d ago

What goes around comes around and I promise you, Ubisoft will see their actions blow back on them when their diminishing sales numbers and stock taking a hit downward. That's the only way a company learns when they decide to be reactive instead of proactive.


All BioWare Games Ranked from Worst to Best

BLG writes: "There was a time that BioWare games were the biggest deal in gaming. The Canadian developer’s legacy of all-time classics is well known. Mass Effect, Knights of the Old Republic, and Baldur’s Gate are some of the biggest names in gaming.

While BioWare’s quality has fallen off lately, there’s no denying the quality of titles in their portfolio. That’s why we’re going to dive in and rank every BioWare game from worst to best. By every, I do mean every BioWare game, even the ones you completely forgot about!"

Anthem is crazy underrated. I really enjoyed it. ME1 is Bioware's best imo

I actually put quite a bit of hours into Anthem but i dont think its underrated. It was a huge mess, server issues, gameplay issues, crashes, no endgame loop, too few different enemies, uninteresting gear. too few dungeons.

It for sure had potential and if they could have managed to keep the same gameplay of the classes but without the rest of the issues, this game could have been huge, but in the state in which it launched it was such a letdown. They partly fixed some of the issues, but it took too long. A grinding game like this needs to hook players from day 1.


'Dragon Age' and Why It Sucks to Play Cult Favorite Games

Delving into a well-loved game or series years after its release, when it already has an enthusiastic and devoted fanbase, can be incredibly difficult. People can be casually mean on the internet without intending to, and that happens a lot when you say you don’t like something they do. Fans of the franchise take their love of the game very seriously. They’re fervent and devoted, which has its charms, but it can also feel like you’re disappointing them when you decide their thing is not your thing.

All dragon age games are terribly boring
