I think someFor a game on the ps3 this is a great game, a lot better than DA:O or DA 2. There are tons of missions and areas to explore. I think some people for some reason think this game should have the graphics that the new consoles have, that's just ignorant. Has great graphics for a ps3 game, and gameplay is by far better than the other DA games. I'm looking forward to seeing how this game looks and runs on the ps4 and pc. Expand

The story immediately pulled me in, though I had to laugh when I played over an hour just to see the title screen finally show up. (I like to do side quests and explore in my RPGs).

    It's graphically quite beautiful, and the exploration plus both forms of combat really open the game up. I like using both combat systems, and while the level designs were lacking on DA:2, I was one of the people that loved that game (so you know where I'm coming from), mostly because the combat for playing a rogue was much improved upon Origins' terrible AI movement.

    I was actually surprised by how quickly the story and motivations pulled me into this game. I shouldn't have been; BioWare is fantastic when it comes to characterization and story. Regardless, this game achieves one of those very hard things to do that so many other games I play fail at: it makes me forget I'm playing a game. I'm so absorbed in every aspect of it. It's completely engrossing, and transports me into the world of Thedas. This is, quite frankly, an RPG after my own heart. It's easily the best installment in the Dragon Age franchise, and one I'm far more likely to replay for that very same reason.

    If you are an RPG fan, you owe it to yourself to give this game a real shot. I honestly can't believe why there are so many negative user reviews. People are too angry and bitter and their venom shows. 0/10? Really? That is not an honest assessment.

    Inquisition easily makes it into my top three RPG video games of all time, and for that reason I'm confident to give it 10/10. Not to 'balance the negative reviews', and not to say that any game is ever truly perfect (there's always room for improvement), but because it delivers in spades everything I love about RPG games and rich storytelling.

    Negate the hate! Do what you love.

    Gave it a 5 for 3 reason. 1 the lack of classes, 2) you can play as assassin or arcane warrior in multi but not in single player, 3) the gameGave it a 5 for 3 reason. 1 the lack of classes, 2) you can play as assassin or arcane warrior in multi but not in single player, 3) the game was built mainly as multiplayer with single game as a bone with not much meat on it and single player game is highly unbalanced against the player, right off the bat you a uber pride demon to fight with your level 2 team.

That being said, I alreadyI was super excited that they decided to bring this out for the last gen consoles. I didn't expect they would. That being said, I already expected that they would have to cut down on the graphics to make the game run smoothly. However, I didn't expect them to do a chop job on the whole game like they did. The pop-textures and the PlayStation 2 quality graphics were seriously distracting. It's pretty disturbing how bad they are on the PlayStation 3, considering how good their other games they've made were on the eyes. Example would be Mass Effect, the whole series. With that said, it felt like they just put this together and hoped it could be masked in, what I believe to be, a decent storyline. But it only detracts. I'm hoping some sort of patch will help this out, but I don't hold my breath.

    As for the story, its truly massive which is normally great for most games. Such as Elder Scrolls Skyrim. But in the case of DAI, I felt overwhelmed by all the info being thrown into my face all at once. It truly made me feel anxious and unfocused on any one task. Not a good thing, in my opinion. Nothing felt casual about these encounters - it just felt like an MMO scripted and forced.

    All that being said, I'm speaking in past-tense because I plan to stop playing this mess and wait until I get a PS4 in hopes that I can stop feeling nauseated by the terrible graphics and focused on what is a decent storyline. One can only hope.

I get that it's supposed to be for the current gen but this game is broken for the PS3. I expected some muddy textures and lower frame rate. What I got is sporadically loading textures, textures that flat out refuse to load in and a frame rate that looks like something out of a bad stop motion animation feature. I love Bioware games so those by themselves would not be an issue. I've played buggier games for the story alone but, the straw that broke the camel's back came when I was climbing a ladder in the Forbidden Oasis area and the game decided to slow to a crawl. It took my character a good three minutes to slowly, agonizingly ascend the ladder. No big deal though I'll just keep moving and it will sort itself out. Ten minutes later it had not. I figured saving then reloading might be in order. How wrong I was as I reloaded the game only to find that the lag had been saved along with the rest of the game. I tried moving to a new location in the game world via fast travel. The lag now persists in the entire game world becoming more of a threat to Thedas than the rifts in the sky. I might pick this game up when I upgrade to the PS4 next year. In the meantime I would discourage anyone thinking of buying this game for the PS3 from doing so. If you enjoyed the other Dragon Age games then this one will just make you angry. It's nowhere close to the caliber of the first two entries into the series and has made me wish that they never even bothered to try to port it back to the former generation of consoles. Expand
