    Great collection of all content for this game at a very reasonable price.

    Great collection of all content for this game at a very reasonable price.

    Like other Bioware Games, Dragon Age is a mix of story telling and action segments. The length of gameplay potential is huge with an engaging main story and plenty of interesting side stories to pursue.

    I bought this game during Steam Sale and let me tell you, it was well worth the money. Not only do you get a 50+ hours story, but around 6I bought this game during Steam Sale and let me tell you, it was well worth the money. Not only do you get a 50+ hours story, but around 6 DLCs and an add-on campaign as well.
    That's not all though, as this game is very well done in all aspects, the combat is enjoyable, the world has ideal size and is not too big and not too small, the character interactions among party members are amazing (and include romance options and sex), the story is good (even though not that original) and the music is okay as well. There are tons of dialogue choices and ways to progress through the game, even though there are not that many areas, you are basically free to visit them in whatever order you like. There are even six different beginnings depending on which race and profession you choose.
    The best part of the game for me was a trip to the Fade dungeon which was basically like playing a 3D adventure game, a nice change of game play for a little bit.

    Now for some negatives:
    The DLCs are mostly not that entertaining, unfortunately, but that was to be expected.
    The story is not very original.
    Not all party memebers are equally entertaining, I only like 1/2 of them.
    It may get a little repetitive in some longer dungeons and there is one part of the main story, Orzammar, that felt way too dragged out, as it was a neverending stream of caves full of enemies.
    I was not a fan of the random encounters with enemies on the world map.

    Graphics feel like polished last gen however, the story is passable and the characters are most likely the best part of the game (althoughGraphics feel like polished last gen however, the story is passable and the characters are most likely the best part of the game (although nothing to write home about). As in any RPG it's the supporting cast that makes the game come to life as the main character in Dragon Age is just awful. Bonus points for being a long story that doesn't drag on or over stay its welcome. Collapse
