    BioWare achieved everything that it needed to with Dragon Age: Inquisition. It revitalised a series that had suffered real brand damage in Dragon Age II, and easily stands as the best RPG we've seen in years. There is absolutely no reason to miss out on this one.

    Dragon Age Inquisition is a must play RPG on the PS4 that successfully takes the best out of both previous games to create sword and sorcery perfection.

    This is the return of the great Bioware, back on a path that we hope they don't leave ever again. Emotive amount and variety of content makes for an incredible adventure.

    With a huge, breathtaking world, an epic story, and choices that leaves a significant mark on the world around you, Dragon Age: Inquisition embodies everything that makes the series so popular.

    It’s a surprisingly huge, dense world, and I soon realized there were still entire sandboxes I hadn’t even set foot in. Even in my hundredth hour, I’m still discovering.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition is the biggest and best Dragon Age to date. Packed to the brim with content and carefully refined mechanics, it's sure to please any Dragon Age fan. It has a fair share of problems, but none detract too much from the strong core experience.

    Lovely design and solid atmosphere but the gameplay feels clunky.

It's been a long wait, but man has it been worth it. Great battle mechanics, much to do (with purpose) and guess what? It doesn't fee grindy (say what?). This is because Bioware, does what it does well and offers solid STORIES. Not just a good main story, but hundreds of good side stories (so far). Thank you, Bioware! Expand

    There is not much to say about Dragon Age: Inquisition, a part from the fact that is (almost) perfect!

    There is not much to say about Dragon Age: Inquisition, a part from the fact that is (almost) perfect!
    Gorgeous graphic, outstanding story and improved combat system (at least in my opinion).
    The only thing that is not working so well in this game is the tactical pause with which (sometimes) is difficult to select an opponent an identify your characters.

Graphics are decent (thought some occasional flicker). But combat is too easy. Many quests are shallow and repetitive. The dreaded inventory lag makes maintaining your party's gear needlessly painful. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. How strange the praise has been from my perspective... The game is fine. Wonderful visuals and a far more refined combat system, which is exactly what I was hoping for. What I didn't expect, on the other hand, is that almost none of my choices would actually make a difference until about half way through the game. I didn't buy Inquisition for the combat or the visuals. I love that they've been improved, but I bought this game for dynamic storytelling, something which Origins handled with such care. Something I thought would be stronger than ever in this game by default, but so far I don't think a single choice that I've made, aside from maybe choosing my species, has affected anything at all. I've played through to where I am multiple times and everything that I do leads to the the same dialogue and outcome. The changes are so slight. So... Has it been disappointing? Yes, of course. Origins introduced me to the actual role playing elements from the very get go and they were subtle, handled with care and I actually felt like I could change something. I guess that's my main problem with Inquisition. Not once through my fifty or eighty hour playtime did I feel like my character was truly mine or that the world was mine to mold or shift. It doesn't feel like much of a role playing game to me. Its awfully strange to pick up the box of the game that I just purchased and think "I... I'm seriously unsure if I want to play it again". It doesn't have the one thing that a Dragon Age game needs. A sense of choice feels absent in a big way... Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day. Expand

    I wanted to love this game but the character models were atrocious. There is absolutely no reason a next gen game should have 8 different buzzI wanted to love this game but the character models were atrocious. There is absolutely no reason a next gen game should have 8 different buzz cut hair styles for characters. On top of that you couldn't even make a female character that looked female, and Bioware acted like a bunch of spoiled diva's anytime you tried to confront them about it on the forums with threats of being banned. Guess they aren't as open minded as they claim to be. The best thing that could've happened to Bioware was David Gaider leaving. Unfortunately it didn't happen soon enough as he tainted the Dragon Age series. On top of that patching out anything that gave the player a chance to actually enjoy all aspects of the game for reason really showed how Bioware really thinks of its player base, and I will no longer be supporting any future projects by them.
