Whether you disagree with that reviewer or not, you should not remove his review. This is exactly why users are so pissed and are backlashing against the outrageous 8.0+ rating this game is getting from wussy Critics who refuse to give Dragon Age 2 a bad review just because it's a popular title.
Shame on you Metacritic, but I might as well post my main complaint about Dragon Age 2.
Typical Dragon Age: Origins quest:
A kid has been possessed by a demon, who is now terrorizing and killing off a village. Your choices that have an effect on this story:
1.) If you picked a mage as your origin story, the person that accidentally helped the demon possess the boy is a friend of yours in the circle.
2.) You find this mage in a prison when you storm the castle. You can choose to kill him or not.
3.) When you get to the boy, you can choose to kill him or enter the dream realm.
4.) You can use blood magic to enter the dream realm if you have it. If you don't, you can have the imprisoned mage get you into the dream realm. You can also get help from the circle if you did the quest and saved the circle.
5.) When you enter the dream realm you can choose to deal with the demon or not. If you do, it grants you access to some powerful rewards, but leaves the demon to torment the boy later on in his life.
6.) Oh by the way, you could choose not to save the village at all.
a.) If you complete this quest, the father of the boy will help you in the end. A very modest effect on the end story, but it is there.
Typical Dragon Age 2 quest:
Merryls broken mirror. Choices you have:
1.) You can choose to help her with it or not. The mirror cannot be restored. No choices you make effect the outcome.
a.) You can kill villagers after the quest is done or not. (lol...)
This problem, on top of the constantly reused assets and mostly uninteresting companions, makes for a painful and uninteresting story and a mere shadow of the original game.
I will not buy another game from Bioware before trying it ever again. I want my 60$ back and another 60$ for the insult.… Expand
