Story
You are a Grey Warden, one of the last of an ancient order of guardians who have defended the lands throughout the centuries. Betrayed and abandoned by a trusted general in a critical battle, you must hunt down the traitor and bring him to justice.

Gameplay
Bioware have built Dragon Age Origins to have the most content of any of their games since Baldur's Gate 2, giving the player a huge world to explore in Ferelden whilst fighting the Darkspawn threat. With real time combat and command of up to three additional party members, balancing your attention between chaining together blows and using your party's skills to best advantage will be key. Being the saviour of the lands isn't the most popular job surprisingly, so conversation and diplomacy with both the reverent and the hostile is essential to progress in whatever moral and story path you decide. With crafting in traps, poisons and herbalism to refine your battle arts and boost your party in and out of battle, there'll be enough depth in items and statistics to satisfy the most hardened dungeon crawler whilst still providing a rich story-based experience for first timers to the genre.

Characters
Starting as a warrior, mage or rogue in Human, Elf or Dwarf form, Dragon Age Origins features a wealth of character customisation options both on and off the field. Each combination of race and class comes with its own "Origin Story", which combines with player dialogue choices in the game to produce a large variety of possible endings--all with voice dialogue.

With specialisations in skills earnt as your character progresses, evolve from an apprentice in your chosen field to become as focused or as versatile as you chose. Party members and support characters come with specialisation options of their own, and with an eclectic cast varying from fellow Gray Wardens to mages and spirit healers your back is definitely covered. With a dark fantasy plot married to Bioware's conversation and relationship system, choose your conversations with care as friendship, hatred, violence or love could be the end result.


Key Features:

  • A Stunning World to Explore - BioWare's deepest universe to date with over 80 hours of gameplay and more than double the size and scope of Mass Effect.
  • An Epic Story - Completely shaped and reactive to your play style, multiple endings await based on your actions. Choose wisely..
  • Complex Morality - Murder, genocide, betrayal, the possession of children—in this world, there are no easy choices.
  • Tailor your Dragon Age - Origins experience from the very beginning by choose from six different Origin Stories.
  • Full Character Customisation - Sculpt your hero’s image, personality and morality based on the choices you make throughout the game.
  • Bone-Crushing, Visceral Combat - Battle against massive and terrifying creatures with legendary powers and choose from over 100 different magical spells and skills, including beheading your foes or casting spells that make enemies explode from within.

Product Description

From the makers of Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic, and Baldur's Gate comes an epic tale of violence, lust, and betrayal. The survival of humanity rests in the hands of those chosen by fate. You are a Grey Warden, one of the last of an ancient order of guardians who have defended the lands throughout the centuries. Betrayed by a trusted General in a critical battle, you must hunt down the traitor and bring him to justice.

As you fight your way towards the final confrontation with an evil nemesis, you will face monstrous foes and engage in epic quests to unite the disparate peoples of a world at war. A romance with a seductive shape-shifter may hold the key to victory, or she may be a dangerous diversion from the heart of your mission. To be a leader, you must make ruthless decisions and be willing to sacrifice your friends and loved ones for the greater good of mankind

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Baldurs Gate 3 1 Dec 2009
By Dan
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The basics of the game are that you control a party of 4 using a point and click interface in the aim of completing a single huge quest.

You start off in one of a number of starter stories based on you character type which have an affect on the way people speak to you throughout the entire game. These are possibly some of the most interesting areas as the world. The script is very tight and you are introduced to the world in an interesting and not overwhelming manner.

You are introduced to the three character types:
A rogue who does increased damage from back stabs, can open locks and does not like being attacked by large numbers of enemies. The rogue has three choices of play. To be an effective dual wielder, to be an effective archer, or to be mildly effective at both. Later they have the option to specialise becoming a ranger style with a pet or to increase their damage output.
A mage who does a large amount of damage to single or multiple enemies or indeed anyone in the area and does not like being attacked by large numbers of enemies. The mage gets the healing spells, the buff spells and the mass damage spells. Later they have the option of becoming a shape changer, a better healer, a mage/warrior, or being able to manage their mana pool more effectively.
A warrior who can be attacked by larger numbers of enemies and does some moderate damage. The warrior can become be an effective tank, slow but hard hitting two hander or a dual wielder. Later they have the option for a few more spell like abilities.
All the characters do a combination of damage, slow, stun and knockdown attacks. With a few hinder/helper skills thrown in.

After the introduction story the player can choose the order in which they tackle a handful of areas on the map.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baldur's Gate 3 9 Nov 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love Baldur's Gate 2 and still play it through quite regularly so I was somewhat dubious at the announcement that they were making a new contender. However, so far, my fears have been unfounded. The game is innately playable, and so addictive that I sit here at work twitching, waiting to get home so I can score another hit of DA:O.

I was always of the belief that it was the NPC (computer controlled) character interaction, both with you and with each other that made BG2 what it was, so I'm glad to see that they kept that part of it alive. The characters no longer stop to chat in text boxes as before, but instead you can hear them bickering with each other as you roam the villages and cities of the world. You can swap over which characters travel with you each time you go to a new quest area and in-between times a base `Camp' can be set up (by clicking the Camp icon on the world map screen). Your own relationship with each character is determined by your responses to them during quests but also around the campfire. Additional friendly points can be gained by giving characters items labelled `gifts' found throughout the game. Obviously your relationship stats with a character is going to change how they react to you in various situations. I'm a little disappointed that you can only max out your party to 4 rather than 6, which gives it more of a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic feel than a Baldur's Gate 2 feel, but you can't have everything!

For the most part though the fights are challenging and the methodology for killing bosses constantly fluctuates.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE RETURN TO THE AGE OF THE CLASSICS! 3 Nov 2009
By NeuroSplicer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First things first: in the past I have chastised EA a number of times for its release of cookie-cutter games, crippled with atrocious DRM schemes. So, in all fairness, I now have to say this: DRAGON AGE: ORIGINS IS A GAMER's DREAM! It is an excellent game - and it comes FREE of any DRM madness. So, thank you EA for listening to your customers (let's only hope this trend holds...).

This is one of those games that are easy to control, a joy to roam through and fun to play at no end.
I am a huge cRPG fan and cannot remember such a great companion/squad cRPG ever since the Baldur's Gate Saga. And to tell you the truth, this is the game I was dreaming of being able to play one day while playing BG (yeah, by now we all know that NEVERWINTER NIGHTS never delivered).

There are about a dozen gender/race/class/background choices and a great many combinations in forming your party. The armor and the weapons are exceptionally made and everything shows on your characters. And the graphics are truly beautiful! You have to see the rendering of flames to believe them.
Nevertheless, what really stands out is the gameplay. Every battle is a puzzle to be solved, pausing ever so often to reallocate enemies to the best suited party members (a feature I loved in BG!). Of course one can always turn off the autopause feature and let the AI take over the rest of your party and turn the game into an hack&slash action RPG (not exactly my cup of tea but, hey, it's still nice to know it's there).

Finally, this is a game made just like the classics in many ways, including duration. I am now playing the game for over 20 hours and I feel that I barely scraped the surface!
