Clearly an unfinished game released early,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dragon Age 2 (PS3) (Video Game)
Why oh why didn't I believe the reviews. Dragonage 2 has the distinct look of an unfinished game that was forced out early to retailers by the publisher. Just one hour into playing this game and you can see that the minimalistic scope can surely not be by purposeful design. You've no doubt read about the very small area in which your characters get to interact. Well not only is it small but its also devoid of any life, streets are almost empty bar a few AI knocking about. There's no sense of anything, certainly not the struggle that was going on in Kirkwall as told in the story.
The general design of locations seem to me quite lazy. Add to this a very stripped down RPG format that reduces a large amount of character customisation. Bioware still offer the, now a bit silly, 'relationships' you can have with characters (I guess now their calling card), but that itself is so corny that I didn't even bother pursuing it at all. Press the right buttons and bring some hidden gift to a character and you can watch a silly love scene... Why?
Sadly I didn't finish this game as I felt it was going no where, which is a real shame. It's not really up to the standard of Origins. If you are a big fan of Dragonage I'm sure you will get something out of this game. Unfortunately I didn't.
