Dragon Age: Origins
the game itself is the definition of the word/s boring stale and repetitive the combat makes me want to play different games and the seemingly endless talking does nothing for me by the end my character was so unstoppable he killed everything in his path on nightmare difficulty if the combat was more linear and real time instead of the dreadful DnD system like in NW series i might have played more if i wanted to but everything put me off on it.
this game makes me give it a 3/10 for ad least they tried to make a game I've played so many rpg's its incredible playing this was an insult to my frontal lobe.
To each his own right?
I don't know, I really like that kind of combat system. My character wasn't anywhere near unstoppable at the end; I'd certainly like to know what you did =P
I'm playing through as a Mage now. The perfect combo is the petrify, and stone fist. All I ever see is "Shattered" =D.
Well I wouldn't go quite as far as calling it an insult to my frontal lobe. The writing was decent and the endless talking is what really makes a good RPG afterall. The ending just left a bad taste for me, but this is still without doubt the best RPG in several years.
Which is kind of sad I guess. The game companies keep pumping out one stupid FPS after another, but I guess it's the simple and dumb games that bring in the profits.
So that was a shame to be honest. But the whole game is very nice, the battle system is exactly what i like, with a bit of gore for criticals and such. But i cant bring myself to play it again. Because of the option to export and import characters. That was propably the main reason i played through BG2 about 30 times :P. Had a bunch of level 30-50 characters that i customized to my liking. And I could play with them over and over again, gathering new equip and enahancing my attributes by reaching certain key areas in the game that gave me those attributes.
For example in the "shade world" in Dragon Age its possible to improve some attributes without leveling up. That would have been a major reason for me playing it again, and so fourth.
So the game is fun to play once, maybe twice but then its just the same sheit over and over again :P
Could have used some improvements. But hey, nothing is perfect.
