Average User Score: 9.2Sep 17, 2013The game is almost perfect. The visuals are incredible, the storyline is immersive and the gameplay does not allow the player to get bored.
The only reason for me to give it a ten is the quality of some textures and some slight problems with sound. The rest is indeed Perfect. 9/10… Expand
Average User Score: 9.1Aug 8, 2013The gameplay is pretty entertaining, has different foes require different strategies. One must create a strategy for infected and another for bandits ("hunters" in the game). Playing at some higher difficulties will force the player to evade some of the infected, due to lack of weapons or aid kits. It's a extremely intelligent design.
The game's visuals are striking, every bush, every tree, every building, enemy and character is astonishing and it's pretty fun watching the world being slowly claimed by Nature.
But the best thing about this game is the story. In no other game have I ever seen such a enticing story. The relationship that slowly grows from Joel and Ellie is the jewel of this game. Both the characters are amazing and the player gets really worried about them surviving in such a cruel world.
This is undoubtedly one of the best games ever. An experience the player will never forget.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.3Aug 8, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. There are some improvements in combat visuals, and the mechanics is a lot easier to handle, which attract newcomers to the DA series. But for those who enjoy the complex combat system of DA:O (I consider myself one of them) some disappointment might come from this game.
The game is not a brilliant achievement in graphics (and sometimes it does disappoint, in trees, buildings and the sky) but the characters are pretty well modeled. Reusing locations is also a bad thing that must be noted.
The storyline could be better, its true. This game is basically babysitting a huge city and (the final act of the game) witnessing what will be the story for DA:Inquisition.
The quests are pretty entertaining, but the secondary characters can sometimes be quite forgettable.
Conclusion: Dragon Age 2 is a GOOD game, but it falls short of DA:Origins.… Expand
