Go hand to hand in visceral, heroic combat as your followers fight by your side, or switch to tactical view to coordinate murderous offensives using the combined might of your party. See the tangible, visible results of your journey through a living world – raise structures, customize outposts, and change the landscape itself as environments are re-shaped in the wake of your Inquisition. Lead a party chosen from nine unique, fully-formed characters – each of whom react to your actions and choices differently, forming complex relationships both with you and with each other. Create 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

    There’s no hyperbole when I say that Dragon Age: Inquisition is the best RPG I’ve played in a long time. Hell, it’s the best game of any genre I’ve played in a long time. It’s a shoo-in for Game of the Year in my books, a masterclass in game design that deserves a spot in everyone’s game library.

    Dragon Age Inquisition has raised the bar for storytelling. It’s the sort of game you think you have figured out after a few hours, but time and time again it’ll surprise you. With a rebuilt combat system, an open and inviting world, 150 hours of content, and a warm and familiar storytelling system, Dragon Age Inquisition is the best RPG I’ve played in a decade.

    Great story, beautiful and complex semi-open world. An insane amount of content and fun mechanics. That Dragon Age: Inquisition is great looking and with an added bonus of co-op does not hurt either.

    Vast and gorgeous environments full of highly varied missions together with an involving plot, brilliant characters and a deep and satisfying combat system make Dragon Age: Inquisition one of the best RPGs to date. Unmissable.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition is one of those rare games where its flaws sound severe on paper, but often melt away when you’re actually playing. We can’t remember the last time we’ve been so thoroughly absorbed by a virtual place or so attached to a cast of characters. In that sense, Dragon Age: Inquisition is a flawed journey, but it’s one that we eagerly want to return to.

    It might not be the greatest example of the current generation’s power, nor is it an exercise in reinvention and uniqueness – but when you’ve sunk 50 hours into Inquisition and hardly realised, and you still want to play it for another 50 hours, then you know you’re onto something good. This time the fans get what they want – and apparently what they wanted was very good indeed.

    In trying to be all things to all people, Dragon Age: Inquisition lacks the impact that it might otherwise have had if BioWare had imbued it with the same sense of purpose that its predecessors carried....Inquisition, on the other hand, offers an embarrassment of things to do but sometimes forgets to provide the motivation to do them.

I'm guessing I'm about half way through the game and have about 30 hours put into it. I've also logged about 10 hours of multiplayer, which I love as well.

    I'm not sure what people are complaining about. Fantastic game.

    * Origins level, if not better, writing.
    * Controller+PC = The most fun way to play. The UI for KB+M is lovely, but the movement is much, much better on controller..... they very much tailored EVERYTHING to work better on the gamepad (which is odd for PC).. this may irk some (but delights others like me to no end).
    * Use Mantle if you are AMD GPU - I got a based god 10fps bump and everything just seems to look and run better when using the Mantle API.
    * Install on a SSD for sure, load times are next to none.. just long enough to read 1-2 of the cards then you're into the game.
    * Cut-scenes were a bit stuttery as well, until I used Mantle.. AMD cards and DX11 in this game don't like each other as much.
    * The best music I have ever heard in a game, and I'm only 10 hours in.. it's just...... spectacular.
    * The Storytelling, so far, is amazing... only bested by the superb atmosphere and character interactions.
    * GOTY shoe in from what I've played.. it's the Dragon Age game you have been waiting for since finishing Origins, believe the hype.

The game is a fun RPG w/a ton of replay value. At times there are glitch spots but overall pretty smooth. Storyline is the most in depth I've seen yet in any next gen system, some really interesting characters & per Bioware standard the dialogue wheel gives you a wide array of responses to suit your specific hero. The world is huge to the point that you may get bogged down in side quests but as a huge RPG fan myself that's exactly what I'm looking for. The first High Dragon battle was reminiscent of the weapon battles from FF VII. Could go on further but I'll sum it up w/this, any true RPG fan who hasn't got this game yet, first give yourself a slap on the wrist & then go get this game. Well worth it Expand

At times it can be fun but for the most part it is repetitious and boring. The graphics are decent and the single player is fun to play. I am actually shocked at how many low reviews this game had I think this is the best dragon age in the series by far and I think the series is headed in the right direction. Expand

    This is a transition game. The studio that once made pure gold now churns out things like Anthem and ME:A. DA:I is where you see the startThis is a transition game. The studio that once made pure gold now churns out things like Anthem and ME:A. DA:I is where you see the start of a descent into fail. It has just enough of the great things that made BioWare among the best to keep you going. But when you stop and really think about what you're playing, you realize the problems, and you see the trends of darkness coming for your soul:

    - Fetch quests: So many, many fetch quests. 4/5 of the gameplay of DA:I can fall into this category.

    - Side quests: Do you like side quests with real character development and interesting plots? This isn't the game for you.

    - The grind: There's nothing so enjoyable as feeling like you're in the South Park episode milling monsters in a forest until blood starts coming out of your eyes.

    - Characters: There's just enough of these characters to make you care, sort of. But it's barely there, and all it does is make you mourn for how much you cared about every single person in the ME series.

    - Plot: I wrote the entire plot of this game on a metaphorical cocktail napkin after I played the first hour, about how I thought it would play out. Turns out I was right. Nobody who's played the game will be shocked by this. It's just as bland as ME:A.

    This was the last gasp, then it was all over, goodbye BioWare, EA ate your soul. So I somewhat enjoyed the ride of DA:I, I guess?

    After a while, the slog of the game got to me, and I'm like, "Man, I just want to replay ME, again."

However, the way of assassin quest that is required to be done to get that specialization is bugged. After investing 75 hours into the game and trying every trick that people wrote about I was still unsuccessful, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THE GAME. Unless of course you do not want your special ability tree that gives you all of the good skills in the game. This issue has been addressed a long time ago, but yet EA fails to fix it. I WILL NOT EVER BUY ANY EA game again. I even canceled my Battlefield preorder. Expand
