Bioware once known for their strong writing in RPG franchises such as Baldur's Gate, Jade Empire, KOTOR, Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 1 and 2. Have now produced a game equivalent to Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning. The dissapointing part is that while Amalur had a beautiful environment and solid combat the questing and storyline was horribly dull, however Kingdom of Amalur had some solid gameplay mechanics which helped make up for this weakness. Inquisition does not, the tactical view is unnecessary and broken on PC and the mechanics are dumbed from Dragon Age 2 which many critics believe were dumbed down from Origins in order for the gameplay to work on consoles which lack the necessary buttons. However this is not a sufficient excuse for two reasons 1)The Port could have actually had some effort put into it. 2) There are issues here not related to controllers. Like the fact that healers no longer exist, that you can't select your followers and que any actions. All of this makes for a terrible experience for anyone who was hoping to see the decline in Bioware's mechanics and writing to reverse itself here in this game. Most of the old Bioware staff have been replaced by EA or internally, or in the case of its founders jumped ship. It is a sinking ship.
Well that's my review of the game, but I'd also like to discuss the decline at Bioware and why it has more significance to it than this one game. Near the end of Origin's development cycle Bioware sold out to EA and their has been shakeups at the studio where staff have been replaced by Corporate shills and Social Justice Warriors. This decay can even be found in Origins to some extent where large boring sections of the game were written in by Jennifer Hepler a self-professed admirer of Anita Sarkeesian as is David Gaider the lead writer for the series. Why is all this relevant? Well Anita Sarkeesian is a proven con-artist who scams people for money and criticizes everything that has so far helped grow gaming into a mainstream hobby. In a world where Sarkeesian dictates what defines a game and what acceptable speech and thought are classic RPGS that got many involved in this hobby would not exist. I'm talking about classics such as Final Fantasy VII a game which under these people's views would be sexist and racist and therefore should be banned. For many people this was the RPG that got them invested and interested in games or RPGS as a whole. Hell Anita even openly criticizes Mario, you know the lovable plumber that was part of our childhood dreams? The average guy who rescued the princess and found love. Nope according to these people he's just part of the patriarchy treating women like weak feeble minded creatures who need rescuing. It's honestly so ridiculous how fast this Cultural Marxist insanity has spread from the Media to Academia to Politics to Video games media and now to video games themselves.
Many of us play videogames to get away from the degeneracy and craziness we see in the world. All we ask is to leave us alone while the powers that be continue to be like parasites sucking up our time and money, leaving us wage-slaves to this communist state. Everyone recognizes there is a problem in this country, but the Media have shaped opinion not to blame the Republican and Democrat communists who have shat all over our constitution but instead to blame working class white heterosexual males, the same people these parasites make their living off of. At this point I feel like those of us who are likeminded individuals need to stand up and say enough is enough, we tolerated all the **** and all the lies and propaganda they've thrown at us but this is going to far, now you want to police our thoughts as well and indoctrinate your message even into video games, the very means which we use to escape the insanity you fling at us daily? NO!
Don't buy this game, don't throw your money at a shoddy product that only received good reviews because the media is part of the cultural Marxist machines which will make us all wage slaves helping the rich to get richer and turning the poor against us as the rich offer them breadcrumbs and exploit their ignorance. This is truly 1984.… Expand

The biggest problem is the nonsensical, plot hole ridden, open to speculation "endings" which is really one cutscene which uses 95% of the same assets and different colored explosions. In addition Bioware used various shortcuts which really hurt the game in the end. The side quest missions weren't really missions at all, more like a find a needle in a haystack type of game. There is no quest tracking, and tali's face was google photoshopped in. The cutting of corners wouldn't have diminished the rating so much as the fact that the ending negates the point of the entire series "player choice." The day one Dlc was also controversial and a money-grab. I would recommend renting the game if your a fan, and not buying it.… Expand
