Played the first one and loved it! Any thoughts on the second one?
I advise playing a far more repetitive game than Dragon Age: Origins before you play DA2 simply because then the latter might actually seem better by comparison. Every facet of Dragon Age 2 seems rushed in someway, which is a real shame. I don't in any way begrudge them confining the action to Kirkwall...but BioWare took five steps back. Identikit dungeons, boring loot, a lack of some of the most basic RPG conventions and a story that promises much but very rarely delivers, Dragon Age 2 is not a bad game, but it will disappoint you so very much.
I agree! I didn't play the first one, but I was so bored with DAII that I didn't finish the game. Many of the encounters are repetitive and forgettable. There were not any awesome loot drops and there are loading screens every couple of minutes. You will spend more time watching them than playing the game!
Loading screens on the PC version aren't a problem at all, they zip by. It's getting to the point, I think, where PC and console games should be separately reviewed everywhere... and I'm glad that we on here do go down that route more than even some of the biggest sites/magazines do. It's the right thing.
