I have personally spent over 150 hours on this game, it is a very immersive and fantastically detailed RPG (I think the first RPG i have played) with an epic storyline and some well written characters.
Some people have mentioned graphics issues and these can be traced and solved by turning off the auto save feature. (just remember to save your game frequently!)
Bioware has created a giant in Dragon Age. Most RPGs dont have such compelling stories, they are filled with extra pointless quest that take up your time. Some people like pointless, i completed this game at least 4 times, each time took me about 50 hours. I did everyting i could possibly do, plus the DLC is great, bringing extra content to an already brilliant game. The world of dragon age, is basically the 21st centurys answer to Lord of the rings. Unfortunely some people truly have no understanding of what a good game is.....Shame.
If you liked starwars knights of the old republic 1 & 2, u'll like dragon age origins, its like kotor 1 & 2 in many ways as in your party members personal quests, equipping armor and weapons and upgrading them, a place where all your party members are together, gaining your party members trust or disapproving you, travel to different places etc etc, i got this game as it was made by bioware as i'm a big kotor 1 & 2 fan, now i'm a big dragon age origins fan and cannot wait for the second!! a must get!!!
Cant believe its lowered to 15 quid now! Great price for a great game. The gameplay is awesome, the graphics are awesome and the storyline is awesome. But as others have said, while the graphics are good they do slow the game down a bit. What makes you want to play Dragon Age for hours and hours every day is the relationship you build with your character and other companions. Some of the various storylines to quests are also quite emotional because when something good/bad happens to your character, you feel that its impacted yourself personally. All i can say is that this is in the top 3 games on my list
Brilliant! I am not a big role playing game fan. I got this simply to see what all the fuss was about. Well i can see now why people disappear for hours on it, its immersive and you care about the characters. The combat is cool and your character is customisable to the extreme, even being able ot change the facial features. The graphics are brilliant and the world is full of quests and subquests. Recommended to everyone whos old enough to buy it.
