5.0 out of 5 stars The best RPG since Final Fantasy 7, 14 Sept. 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dragon Age: Origins (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Bioware, makers of Mass Effect, bring dragons to life in this stunning RPG developed by EA Games. You are one of the last remaining Grey Wardens and Ferelden's only hope of defeating the Blight of Darkspawn and the dreaded Arch Demon.

You are given the choice of playing as a human, an elf or a dwarf. You then select your combat type, you can either be a mage, a warrior or a rogue. You can also choose your background type (whether you want to be a noble, a city elf, etc.) You then get to select your character's personality type and change their appearance in vivid detail, making it as personal to you as you'd like. Being able to make your character so lifelike is definitely one of the perks of the game.

Before you can defeat the Blight and chop off the Arch Demon's head you must first gather an army, in doing so you will recruit members to your party. Your actions and decisions throughout the game will influence your party members' opinion of you and you can even win them over by giving them gifts, as well as having the chance to experience the thrill of romance with a select few! Being able to be so thoroughly interactive with the other characters is the meat on the bones of Dragon Age and definitely makes it worth playing.

Your travels through the cities and villages of Ferelden will give you the opportunity to take up side quests which will allow you to obtain money, treasure and much needed battle experience, as well as unlock the many areas of the map. Most of the side quests are optional, but it is recommended that you do them to get the full experience of the game.

The battle sequences in Dragon Age are incredible; allowing you to pause the battle and take charge of all of your party members, positioning them where you want them to go and using the attacks you have selected. Getting into battles gives you experience points, which in turn allows you to level your characters up, so they can learn new abilities. There is also a wide selection of weapons and armor available for you to equip your characters with.

This game is a must buy for RPG lovers everywhere. The graphics are stunning and incredibly realistic, there is an interaction between characters that is not seen in as greater depth in other games like it and there is well over 60 hours worth of gameplay at your fingertips if you play the game to the fullest of your abilities.
