This review is from: Dragon Age 2 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
First of all, I did enjoy playing Dragon Age 2. The game does indeed have it's good points. These include:
The voice acting is brilliant.
In places the story was quite emotional.
Combat was faster.
Graphics were an improvement.
But Dragon Age 2, has it's bad points as well:
The bugs, especially the import bugs.
Exploding enemies were too much. The kill blows in Origins were far better.
The streamlining of the inventory system.
Companions not as memorable as those in Dragon Age Origins.
Not being able to change companions armour was a dissappoinment. For example I have all these different types of armour that my rogue and companion's can't use.
A clear overuse of recycled environments. It got tiresome going to the same areas; again and again.
Enemies spawning out of thin air
No auto attack on the Xbox 360. You can imagine how awesome it is to press the attack button over and over.
The Elf design is horrid.
Lack of choice in the race you can play.
Bioware, it can be argued took the wrong design path with DA 2. Instead of improving the brilliant Dragon Age Origins. The developers decided to make Dragon Age 2 more like the Mass Effect games. This was clearly a mistake and as a result, I felt that I was playing a Dragon Age version of Mass Effect.
Thus, Dragon Age 2 is a disappointment and I have little desire to replay, this game. I would advise renting this game, before purchasing.
