5 out of 5 eggsShould be an expansion

Pros: Beautiful graphics on my new TV with Xbox 360 HDMI. Absolutely love how they have redesigned mage combat. I hated having my healer die from 2 criticals from a rogue in DA:O. Now my healer can actually put up a fight. All of the classes seem much more balanced. The combat has definitely been improved. Absolutely love playing with every class now. Since they increased attack speeds for the fighter classes, playing with a two handed sword/bunt is much more fun!

Also, the cameos from DA:O are pretty cool (not revealing who if you have not played the first one) and also the cameos from expansions are cool too.

Overall.. not as good as the first one, but still a great RPG.

Cons: Would have like more original dungeons. A couple of people have already mentioned this, but yes they do reuse a couple of dungeons which is a bit disappointing.

More party control would have been nice. Some of the party control has been simplified since the first game (probably to make it more console friendly).

Can only play as human. This is the only real con for me. I loved playing with the dwarves in DA:O and was hoping to get to play with the Kunari in DA2...

Other Thoughts: Dragon Age 2 should have been a large expansion to the original. It feels like a large expansion or add on. It does not seem to be a proper sequel imho...

To BioWare: Please do not sacrifice the best features you have built Origins on for the sake of simplicity. Its not worth it... Also, please rename this to be a large expansion to the original and not a full sequel (feels kind of how New Vegas is to Fall Out 3).

4 out of 5 eggsInteresting SAequel

Pros: - Combat feels fresh, makes the action seem more intense compared to Dragon Age Origins.

Cons: - Dungeons are repeated, even for completely separate areas.
- Inability to completely control what your companions wear, can only choose accessories and weapons.

Other Thoughts: overall a good game with a fresh spin on it, some things could be better, there were a few bugs, but I am sure those are resolved in the patch which I can't get at the time of this review. worth $30 but not $60

5 out of 5 eggsVery Enjoyable

Pros: If you enjoyed Dragon Age: Origins you will very likely enjoy this game. The gameplay is for the most part exactly the same, and while the graphics have improved somewhat everything still looks and feels the same way that it did in DA:O.

Each companion feels very different from the rest and contrary to some other reviews there is a lot of depth and character-specific side missions that make you care about some if not all of the companion characters.

Weapons and armor has been simplified. You take care of your own weapon and armor selections and most of the weapon selections for your companions which means less time will be spent finding decent armor configs for companions you use less. Your companions choose their own character specific armors which can be upgraded (if you locate the upgrades scattered throughout the game). You can also add runes to further enhance your characters armor and abilities.

Much improved inventory and journal system makes it easier to find items and

Cons: Many of the incidental missions are "Find X item bring it to X person Get gold."

None of the core missions or companion missions are like this but still there are plenty of missions that follow this formula. However most of these missions are triggered by you actually finding some rare artifact and can be ignored if you choose (its just a helpful way to earn gold).

Qunari change appearance from DA:O with no explanation (they have horns now).

Some glitching later on in the game, especially involving missing textures or a few minor missions who's events don't trigger properly leaving them impossible to complete.

No cross-class training (impossible to be a warrior and a rogue, for instance). But DA:O was the same so its more of a general gripe about the rigid class system.

Other Thoughts: DragonAge 2 is a very enjoyable game. Like I said if you enjoyed DA:0 you will enjoy this game. The stories take place at roughly the same time, and there is a lot of character cross over from DA:O and Awakenings.

While people have complained about the story not making sense, it really does and I feel that this story has a much larger chance of shaping future games than Origins did. I don't want to give away spoilers but by the end of the game you will see that the events depicted in Dragon Age 2 have rocked the world of Dragon Age far more than any Blight ever did.

2 out of 5 eggsGaming De-Evolution

Pros: Relatively stable (On PC)

Cons: Moronic story line. Stale character design with the exception of Varric. Dumbed down combat.

Other Thoughts: Baldur's Gate was a great game. Neverwinter Nights were great games. Dragon Age: Origin was a great game. Mass Effect 1 was a great game. Mass Effect 2 was a great game.

But it seems BioWare's history of making great games ends here.

Good Night, Sweet Prince.

3 out of 5 eggsNot as good as DAO but not bad.

Pros: Combat is more fast paced, and you have less equipment management to deal with. Story is OK and cameos from DAO characters are a welcome addition.

Cons: Too far changed from the original. Game seemed rushed and the same love you saw put into DAO was not put into DA2. Reused dungeon skins.

Other Thoughts: Overall the game is pretty good on it's own. The game's major issue is that it's predecessor DAO was a better overall game. 7/10 in my opinion.

1 out of 5 eggsStick With the Original

Pros: Nice graphics. Advanced fighting engine. Your character talks now...no longer a mute. Team member interaction has been improved. Soundtrack is nothing to snuff at.

-Inventory system is simple but easy to use.
-You can now choose your special ability (no longer a byproduct of how you performed/what path you chose during a quest)
-Voice acting is above average
-I've personally been a fan of the travel system from area to area or town to town (it's been improved upon from its predecessor)

Cons: Where to start...

-Depth has completely vanished. Quests feel short and lacking of any real complexity. The game clearly adopted the quantity above quality approach.

-Character development is disappointing. If you recall in DA:O, you had a camp where you could converse with your counterparts...sadly absent in the sequel. Even putting that aside, you feel detached from your comrades, their presence is nothing more than a means to an end.

-Map layouts are insultingly repetitive. They couldn't have used the copy/paste button more if they tried.

-Moral choice system is still second to what Mass Effect has achieved. I feel as if my choices mean nothing, thus the ability to choose outcomes becomes pointless.

-Can't change companion armor/outfit (for the most part).

-DA:O, through level design and depth, made you feel immersed in another world. In the sequel, I feel as if all I'm doing is clicking and killing without purpose.

Other Thoughts: -Soundtrack is great, but overall sound integration during gameplay is in dire need of help. This is something you can tweak in options, but you'll find conversations are nothing more than a whisper while combat is as loud as a shuttle launch. I currently run Z5500 with a Soundblaster HD soundcard.

-Porting your character over is like trying to perform open heart surgery. At least let me say it like this...once again, Mass Effect has one-up'd this game in terms of simplicity. I think this is due to the downloadable content from the first game...so if you wanted to port your character over, be prepared for possible disappointment.

Bottom Line: You feel disconnected from your character, the quests, and the overall plot. It was handled with the same neglect as Star Wars: Force Unleashed 2 (well, almost the same neglect...nothing could ever be as thrown together as that game was).

Wait until the price drops to

Pros: Very good game. Lots of variability in the storyline. TONS of free items you can get before even playing the game.

Cons: Graphics could be better.

2 out of 5 eggsSeverely dumbed down from DA:O

Pros: + Nicer graphics than the original
+ Companions now have some unique abilities that the main character cannot have.

Cons: - This is what PC gamers mean by the word "consolized" -- Dragon Age 2 was severely dumbed down from the original, moving from a deep, complex story and tactics system to more of a braindead clickfest.

- You cannot change the armor on your companions, nor the weapons on at least some.
- Did you want to play as a human? Good. Anything else (elf, dwarf -- already a much smaller selection in DA:O than in Baldur's Gate?) too bad, Bioware has decided for your. You will be a human. Nothing else.
- Did you like the tactical strategy of DA:O? Did you like sneaking up behind an enemy to attack them with your rogue or timing spell combinations? Stick with DA:O

Other Thoughts: The 13-yr old World of Warcraft masses have won again.
