5.0 out of 5 stars Not like Origins but should be taken as a different game, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dragon Age 2 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I played Origins and that was amazing. No. 2 you would have thought would have followed on. The fact is it does a little and you only really hear briefly about your choice in origins.

You play as Hawke (who can either be a rogue, warrior, or mage), who starts off escaping from The Blight from her town Lothering, which if you spotted in Origins got decimated and you could no longer visit there. Your family decide to go to Kirkwall which is where practically the whole game will take place with a few exceptions where you go out of the city. You face a constant battle between keeping either the Mages or Templars in kirkwall happy (I myself always side with the Mages)

Again like in Origins you gain a party with respective classes (warrior, rogue, mage), sadly you cannot interact with them like you did in Origins which is something I really miss, especially when you have your love interest in your party.

The combat is more action based with you having to press the A button all the time to attack an opponent. The radial menu in the bottom right is much smaller and I would have liked that to be like it was in Origins so you easily tell what it was you were using.

Shopping is a necessity as your equipment that was good at one part of the game will eventually worsen as the game goes on, so it's important to keep in touch with the shops.

The continuing story and shaky balance between the Mages and Templars keep you most certainly interested. Only main hindrance is the continued use of the same map over and over again. Despite this it's still 5/5
