I love Dragon Age: Origins and really looked forward to this and I have to say its really disappointed!
Through out the whole game it seems bioware have shoved a majority of there budget into graphics and the rest they have just said "That'll do"!
The characters and story are weak, not like the first where you really wanted to know what happens next and cared what happend to your team.
My biggest issue is the locations for the missions, they look good but there tiny compared to the first game and often the same map used over and over!
People keep saying the combat system is radically improved but its exactly the same, not that I mind, I liked the old system so one good point!
To sum up Its an ok game with a weak story and weak characters, just a shame that this is all they came up with to follow Dragon age: Origins which was a really great game with great story, better luck next time Bioware :(
