Average User Score: 7.7Jun 14, 2013Sure, there are no advanced graphics options and some of the controls are a bit messy (I only did okay thanks to a 5-button mouse); sure, the story's a little "retarded" and the voice acting is only AAA quality if it was for an "are you afraid of the dark?" episode but what most reviews seem to ignore, both from users and critics, is that this game is just plain FUN! It's incredibly close formula-wise to a Zelda game, but with the sort of hyper-cheesy art and story direction that you would have thought was the most badass thing ever when you were 13 (this is both good and bad). It's clear that the developers had fun making this game, and I've been having fun playing it. There are FAR more polished and tightly put together AAA games around, but lack that spark of wanting to come back and play more.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.2Mar 16, 2011Enjoyable but terribly shallow - like going into the kiddie pool as an adult. The levels are atrociously tiny and the art direction looks like a saturday morning cartoon in the worst way possible, but there's just enough plot and other fun mechanics (biomods, scavenging, etc) to keep it worth playing.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.3Mar 11, 2011I'm putting my review here to counter the massive wave of bile and retardation - Yes, Dragon age II is severely flawed; no that does not ruin its entertainment value. The new combat system FEELS quite fun, despite being quite unbalanced (a party of three mages can eviscerate anything more easily than beating level one of a popcap game), and the quests/level design are all on par with its predecessor.
Just because it's not as good as something else doesn't automatically make it bad. I'm enjoying it quite thoroughly, although nowhere near as much as I've enjoyed other Bioware games - Calling it AAA is a joke; Triple-B- would be more like it. good, but not great; and easily the worst Bioware game I've played, which isn't saying much.… Expand
