Go mano y mano in visceral, heroic combat as your followers fight at your six, or switch to tactical view to coordinate lethal offensives using the combined might of your company. View the tangible results of your path through a living world – construct structures, customize outposts, and change the landscape itself as environments are re-shaped in the wake of your Inquisition. Lead a company selected from nine unique, fully-realized characters – each of whom react to your actions and choices differently, forming complex relationships both with you and with each other. Hone your own character from multiple races, customize their appearance, and select their powers and abilities as the game progresses. Extensive customization options allow you to choose everything from the color of your follower’s boots to the features of your Inquisition stronghold. Become an agent of change in a time of uncertainty and upheaval. Shape the course of empires, bring war or peace to factions in conflict, and drive the ultimate fate of the Inquisition. Will you stop the cataclysmic anarchy gripping the Dragon Age? [Electronic Arts] Expand

    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.

Takes the best parts of Dragon Age 1 & 2 and improves upon them. Has a long and interesting main story plus great side quests and sure, there are a lot of uninteresting fetch quests, but you can skip them if you want and not miss a thing. There are so many other interesting quests to tackle. All in all, the game is packed with content and sustains a high level of quality throughout. Expand

Don't be frightened by the bad user reviews, many of them are trolls and the legitimate ones are players who either wasn't a fan of the series before or are in a very select minority who simply just can't immerse themselves in the game. This game isn't perfect, but it's pretty darn close! The crafting system is brilliant, the new characters are actually quite enthralling (to my surprise) and the gameplay can be challenging and gun! I gave this a 10 because it exceeded my expectations for what a video game could do in terms of content. Check it out! Expand

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

I'll outline the points rather than go into detail.

    Map - The variety of areas to explore is brilliant and each area is of very good size.
    Gameplay - I've found the tactical view on this game really useful and adds another layer to the combat.
    Lore - It's my first DA game but I already feel wrapped up in the history and background of the characters
    Graphics - The game looks stunning and game play is very smooth
    Multiplayer - Not for everyone as it's quite repetitive but I enjoy playing this with my friends
    Content - I'd only really played Destiny before this, so to come to a game that has so much content is fantastic. I've spent about 40 hours playing so far and don't feel like I'm near completing.

    Small negatives
    Voice acting - some of the voice acting and dialogue is pretty poor
    Conversation - When you actually speak to people, it's not visually as smooth as general gameplay

Lots of fetch quests and combat is over before you can employ most tactics. Expand

The first one was extremely generic with lackluster combat and a boring story. The second was worse due to the removal of auto-attack. Somebody should put this franchise out of its misery. Expand
