To be fair, if this game was a standalone title, we'd probably say it was pretty good and be done with it.
However, because this is a follow on from Dragon Age 1, you can certainly see some weak points.
Not least, is the new conversation system, well, to be fair, there isn't one, no longer can you stop and pester your comrades for information.
Graphically, it's like looking at Dragon Age 1, not bad, for 2 years ago, and why, when Da1 was played in 1080p, did one of the developers suddenly decide to run 720 for the new one?
The story itself, runs parallel to DA1, and you'll meet a fair few familiar faces along the way, I quite liked that aspect, you got an idea of what happened to the "hero of ferelden"'s companions.
Would I recommend this game? Yes, but I would warn true Dragon Age fans not to expect any more than the original game, especially with the recycled dungeons.
