So, another game that I wanted to review here is Dragon Age. Haven’t played it in a little while, but I still love it. It is one of my most favorite games and have played it a few times both with mods and without them.
They say that this would be a spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate. I wouldn’t say that myself as Baldur’s Gate is way different and way better in many ways but I suppose that it comes a bit closer than many other game out there in the RPG world that doesn’t use D&D or such.
This game lets you choose between six different “origins” (stories that will start off your adventure as the chosen character) that tells different stories. Are you an Elf? Dwarf? Human? Female? Male? Noble? Outcast? Mage? Warrior? Rouge? The choice is yours alone to take what you want to play. You can fix the appearance of your character from hair to mouth to neck to colors, and stats of the character and then off you go to explore the large and beautiful world of Ferelden.
The story in this game is really interesting and the characters that you can join up with along the way just makes it so much more fun, you can talk to them, give them gifts and start a friendship/romance if you want, depending on if you are a female or male in some cases. Even those characters that are met along the way to help you in your quests are nicely done, interesting and creative. Like the sexy Desire Demon or the awesome Lady of the Forest.
The game is a really well made one with beautiful sceneries, fun plot and really nice voice acting. I had lots of fun playing it as I really enjoy romances, good story and the level of customization that the game gives you that many other games doesn’t have. The graphics in the game is really nice, realistic and smooth, with really good battle and fighting style and the use of blank space to pause the game for the use of spells and tactics is a thing I love. The amount of blood that is in the game is really neat as well, and some combat finishers are really awesome. The game can be played third-person and over-the-shoulder, and on PC can be zoomed in and out with scrolling.
Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening, the expansion is a really nice addition and make the game longer, adds more things to do and handed my ass to me, in the final boss fight but I finally kicked her ass at the end anyhow.
And a little mention here about Dragon Age 2, not that it’s really worth it but in my opinion it ruined most of the game franchise.
But I’m still sitting here, waiting for Dragon Age: Inquisition, hoping that the failure that’s Dragon Age 2 teached BioWare and EA a lesson and that they come back with a more awesome game like Origins.
Overall this is an epic game and well worth playing.
