    Then there's the combat, which just isn't fun at all. [Christmas 2009, p.104]

    Origins is so concerned with trying to create something complex and epic, it forgets all the basics and ends up a mess. [Christmas 2009, p.76]
  3. The graphics are dated, the battles are like pulling teeth and while there is a lot to accomplish, none of it ever actually borders on being fun.

    Unplayable on PS3. No isometric view, framerate issues, clipping issues, texture issues. Fugly overall. Also lag after battles, during Unplayable on PS3.

Disappointed @ BIOWARE for caring less. Full Review »
