Dragon Age 2: Review

I completed Dragon Age 2 about a week ago and I have my verdict. Dragon Age 2 is a good game but is different. Dragon Age suffers a common problem within Video games and Music, it isnt as good as the original, Sequels will always be compared to the original as they should be but with Bioware this gets a little trickier. Dragon Age: Origins was such a good game that any sequel was going to suffer. It had dam near perfect characters and storylines.
Dragon Age 2 isnt quite as good.. It coulnt never be but it is still a really good game. Its an amazing game living in the shadow of its bigger brother.

The Pros

- More interactive gameplay without removing the strategy elements
- Interesting Characters (especially Varric and Fenris (Who has an amazing voice actor))
- Beautiful locations
- Dog is now summonable creature (So actually useful)
- Amazing ending (I was up till 4am on a college night just to finish it)
- Elves have been improved, they feel like a different race now

The Cons

- Story takes a while to get interesting
- Locations are limited and repeated
- Only one city
- Only one high dragon (Seriously guys, its called dragon age...)
- Serious lack of allister (Only a cameo)

The Random (as well as vague tips)

- Every companion who is romancable is bi-sexual
- You have the option of genociding an entire society
- All magic users are ass holes (Did Ned Flanders write the story?)
- The Qunari are not as fun as Sten makes them seem
- Never trust women (Barney Stinson may also have been involved in the writing process)
- You can no longer control companions armor so Dragon Armor is pointless for Mages and Rogues (Sell it)
- Hawke is a bit off a cock (new voice actor badly needed)

Is it worth buying?
Yes, especially if you love action and RPG
It is a very good game just not as good
Go into that game knowing its not Origins and you'll love it
Dragon Age 3 will hopefully be a lot better =D

I played this on the Xbox 360
