Amazon.co.uk Product Description
|Dragon Age Origins places the survival of humanity into your hands. Created by Bioware, a developer known for richly detailed role-playing games and as the producers of Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Baldur's Gate, Dragon Age is a high and dark fantasy epic of violence, lust, and betrayal. |
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.
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.

The games I listed at the start of this review are clear inspirations for this game. True, Bioware created KOTOR and is famous for its RPGs, so that's not much of a surprise. What is a surprise however, is that saying that they STILL manage to surprise me! The characters are as lovingly put together and as real as you would expect or hope for. I especially love the character Morrigan (voiced by Claudia Black) for her dry wit and dark humour; and she in turn is reflected by Alistair, a relatively new Grey Warden who is dependable in battle and funny for his ability to assess each situation with his light, and equally dry humour. I guarantee you'll keep him your party through most playthroughs.
The plot itself is the before-seen fantasy tale. Heroes against impossible odds and a horde of enemies who seem to kill everyone easily except you. But saying that it's still a loved theme, and the magical thing is that they made another interesting tale out of it fit for a fantasy author's series.
The gameplay is for me, fun and interesting. But people aren't making mountains out of molehills when they say that the radial menu is a nuisance, when you're a warrior or rouge it doesn't pose much of a problem but as a mage with an ever-increasing spell list it can get a tad fiddly; something the pc version has the upper-hand in.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Personally, I like games with a rich storyline, and it doesn't come much better than this. Firstly, you get to create your own character, which is always a good thing, and each choice comes with a different story. Also, not only can you choose your own responces to the events that take place during the game, rather than watching cutscene after cutscene, but those choices effect the future gameplay.
I've read reviews of people complaining that it is boring, and I cannot see how this is possible. There is so much to do within the gameworld, almost too much, with the additional downloadable/expansion pack content. Its got bloodshed, romance, and a very satisfying conclusion. The achievements are also obtainable, if through a couple of playthroughs - though considering each time you play the storyline is a little different, I don't see this as a problem, but as a bonus.
I certainly do...it is an amazing immersive game with fantastic dialogue and voice acting (which i particularly love) You really find yourself getting attached to characters in a way that tugs at my heartstrings and makes them seem like real beings like no other game previously (I have a major crush on Alistair, actually ^^). Play this game at the peril of your social life - it will suck you into its expansive world whether you like it or not. The 6 'origins' idea are fantastic and the way WHO you are in the game makes a significant difference to how NPCs feel/act towards you is wonderful...And each NPC with dialogue options has such a well developed character and backstory they have enough depth to be the main character! Choosing who you are in the game is so free and open ended, you can be as good or bad as you like or anywhere inbetween and I feel this 'free choice' has been executed better than in any game, EVER! (Sorry fable I, II, Oblivion - you've been thrashed) I find the graphics actually quite satisfactory and some of the cutscenes are breathtaking...the kinds of stuff that makes your hair stand up and beautiful sweeping soundtrack.
The actual gameplay (quests, battles, interaction, items etc.) is just ... addictive and so much fun! You get drawn into the story and its so much fun to play that you'll find yourself picking up your controller whenever you can. You get ALOT of bang for your buck with this game with insane amounts of gameplay available and SO much replay with the 3 different classes and races offering a new game experience each time.Read more ›
