Prepare for more fantastical RPG action from BioWare with Dragon Age 2, the sequel to a game that saw players rescue the world in their own unique way. Be good, be evil, be sexually active… you took your own path.
The situation is no different in this new adventure - the way you play will still write the story of how the world is changed forever. Dragon Age 2 tells the story of Hawke, a refugee survivor of the Blight and a bit of a pauper to boot. That’s the reward for being the Champion of Kirkwall, we guess.
But it is this legacy that begins to draw the path of Hawke’s rise to power, from poverty to a hero (be he noble or a git) that is able to shape the face of the Dragon Age universe. It helps when your journey is riddled with myth and rumour every step of the way.
Dragon Age 2 features an all-new story that spans an entire decade of Hawke’s life - you get to decide how things pan out as you forge alliances, make enemies and engage in combat to protect your honour. The combat system has been tinkered with to provide more of a responsive feel when slaying your foes - becoming a legend never felt so good.
I have mixed feelings about this game after playing it all day. Some of the things that other reviewers didn't like really don't bother me. For example, I don't mind that you can't pick a few different races this time around. That really only changed the first hour or so anyway. The reworked art style seems much better to me. In the original, although I loved the game, there was nothing spectacular or "dark" about the setting, considering they called it dark fantasy. I think they are closer this time around.
They really dumbed a lot of it down, just like with ME2, and I think that was a mistake in some respects. You can no longer deck out your other party members with the best gear, because the only thing you can do is upgrade their equipment with runes. Want them to use a different weapon or give them better armor? Too bad.
