Default Dragon Age - Review Flood #2

November 6th, 2009, 13:16
"Flood" is a bit of an overstatement but let's keep the nomenclature simple, shall we? 9/10 seems about the average for these, yet again Here we go.
The Escapist - the opening sentences set a pretty high bar:
Dragon Age: Origins is the game you've been waiting for all of your life.
Allow me to qualify that: If you enjoy fantasy role-playing games and prefer gameplay over graphics and story over style, then Dragon Age: Origins is the game you've been waiting for all your life.
  • GamePro - A "must-have masterpiece" from the "magic" of BioWare. On the con side, difficulty spikes, camera and "slightly annoying" inventory. 4.5/5.
  • GameInformer - 9/10, the battles are like "puzzles" with a "wealth of tactical options".
    PSXExtreme - May be "one of the sleeper hits of the year", although the graphics and issues like pop-in and framerate are criticised. 9/10.
  • CheatCodeCentral - A "masterfully constructed strategy RPG". 4.6/5 and a "must buy".
Thanks to Metacritic and Gamerankings for some of these.

More information.

I think with the emphasis on the PC & X360 market and the expected delay of the PS3 version, for the PS3 crowd this had fallen well behind in terms of mindshare …

But yeah, 'sleeper' is not one of the top 100,000 words I'd come up with for this …
