Product Description

Dragon Age II is a single player role-playing game (RPG) for play on the PC. Epic sequel to the BioWare developed 2009 Game of the Year, Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II continues the adventure with a new hero, Hawke, and utilizes the choices made by the player to affect a story that spans ten years worth of time in-game. Additional game features include: the ability to choose your character's class and sex, a new cinematic in-game experience, a nonlinear narrative and the ability to import saved information from earlier Dragon Age games.

About Dragon Age II

Embark on an all-new adventure spread across a ten-year span of years with an all-new hero in the multiple award-winning Dragon Age saga. In Dragon Age II you are Hawke, said to have been one of the few to survive the destruction of your homeland. Forced to fight for survival, you gathered the deadliest of allies, amassed fame and fortune and sealed your place in history, eventually becoming in effect a legend in your own time. But legends are all in the telling.

Dragon Age II utilizes a nonlinear narrative, taking the form of a story-within-a-story that hinges upon your exploits as told by the storyteller, Varick. Yet like any good storyteller, Varick tends to exaggerate from time to time. When questioned on events related to Hawke, Varick may present a different scenario in which Hawke's exploits play out. It is within these replays that the decisions of the players hold sway, as their particular versions of Hawke relive these events. Is the player's particular version of Hawke, male or female? A warrior, a rogue, or a mage? Is Hawke good-natured or something less than a salt-of-the-Earth type? Is romance in the air amongst characters he/she associates with? These choices are all the player's to make and each affect the the outcome of the story at all levels.

Game code works fine and Origin registered it first time no issue. Not sure what the other reviewer is having issues with. Reading comprehension I suppose.

The game itself is good. It gets alot of hate and rightly so for it's reuse of dungeons and lack of play space. The majority of the game takes place in one city which gets old fast

The story however is very good as you would expect from Bioware and the party members have some awesome personalities

The game is worse than Origins and it is the expectation of players coming from Origins which is a huge reason why DA2 it is received badly because it didn't do anywhere near enough and in fact did less overall.

What you mainly get here is a story rich game with decent game play but poor locations and aesthetics

Verdict
Get Origins first. If you played Origins and didn't like it don't bother with DA2 as it does nothing to improve the formula. If you care more about story and characters than setting then it may be worth your time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Read first before downloading game 31 Dec. 2014

Things you need to know 1) The product code works well, but you need an account with Origin to download and access the game 2) Once you have downloaded the Origin software onto your PC register your account 3) Once you have registered for an account you can select redeem product code and download your game. I would have given Amazon 4 stars and more but this information was not clear and I had to find out the hard way. So sorry Amazon you needed to make this clearer, the game is good not nearly as good as Dragon Age Origins and Awakenings but still worth playing before getting Dragon Age Inquisition. Hope readers find this information useful and perhaps avoid the mistakes I made when trying to download the game.

Haven't played the game but I can confirm this code gives you the Mac version on Origins as well as PC.

1.0 out of 5 stars Epic Fail from Amazon 16 Nov. 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Any idea how I get this game? You don't provide any links or information... I need an "Origins Account", right? Well, I already have one - and if I go on there they'll let me download this game - for an EXTRA £14.99!
