Dragon Age II Discussion
It was waste of my money.
Many mentioned, this is not the second DAO, it is a stand alone story. But for God sake degrading the character generation( with the reduced available classes), the wood-cube simple linear gameplay and the incredible dumb and self-repeating appearance of the enemies...
I know i because i am from Hungary, but come on, this is about money but gamers
- The dialogue choices seem to give you freedom, but it doesn't. Basically, it gives one choice and differs on the way the character voice that choice.
- Blatantly reusing the same 4-5 maps for the whole entire game is just lazy and boring for the player.
- Removing companions inventory is a minus in my opinion. I like to customize my companions however I wish.
There are also a lot of quest bugs, and overall performance issue that didn't get noticed during quality control. The lack of replay ability is also a minus. Unlike Origins, if you finished DA2 once, you probably don't feel the need to replay it.
PS. Interesting enough, Bodahn mentioned that he and Sandal will be serving in the Orlaisian Court afterward, so a DLC expansion or maybe DA3 might be set in Orlais next.
Oh great, who are we going to play as next, Leliana's Mom and Dad??
Maybe the combat will be fighting her to clean her room or something, who knows hahahaha
Oh well, sorry I hadda do it..... yea, Orlais would be interesting.
I do however like the game play click R and off you go to attack the nearest enemy in sight, The Dialog OMG I miss the DOA approach, Click on someone and you can choose to talk not in DA2 anyhow I think The game doesnt have any replay even thou if you choose a different class you basically have some differences in how the story lays out, A mage OMG your brother is a Jerk, LOL do not know how a rogue story goes have not tried one I was a warrior first then tried a mage,
And, some of the companions ROCK. I highly enjoyed Varic's banter, Merril's quirky behavior, and Isabela was always fun. Anders was .. mediocre, I don't see why some want to romance him, and Fenris was interesting. What I didn't like is how twisted the Mage and Templar factions were in Kirkwall. They were good and yet very evil in their own ways, but I still sided with Mages, as they were enslaved for so long that they DESERVED to have a chance at freedom.
ALSO, I liked the map changes, especially the new cave types, it was a real breath of fresh air, with the foliage I mean. It was very nice and I think this game is a lot prettier than the first, but I use the upgraded graphics pack from their site.

I agree 100% I also feel even with the high res pack that the graphics are mostly just texture maps and you can see that most in the armor of companions. You can see on Merrill for instance how the chain on her arms looks like it is apart of her skin instead of being a separate piece. DAOO's graphic are much more complex in this respect. To me Bioware have gone the interactive movie rout and took a ton of shortcuts with graphics.
