Dragon Age: Origins £19.99 @ Gamestation [XBox 360 & PS3 Games]

It may not last too long but Gamestation are currently selling Dragon Age: Origins for just £19.99. This is the cheapest I have ever seen the XBox version and it is very rare to see PS3 copies for under £20 either. At the moment the next best competitor for either console is Zavvi with a price tag of £24.85 (XBox PS3) so Gamestation's price gives a near £5 saving.

Dragon Age takes some very well worn high fantasy tropes—elves, dwarves, mages, themes of betrayal and impending apocalyptic doom— and places them into a huge world that is a pleasure to explore and filled with side quests to undertake and fascinating characters to meet.

While it may feel rather familiar to anyone who has read any fantasy literature, the story is perfectly paced and just so beautifully told that it will keep you hooked from start to finish as well as being populated by brilliant characters with excellent voice acting to make up for the occasionally dodgy models. Add to this the brilliantly implemented morality system that has far deeper consequences than is usually seen to games, a fun and varied combat system and a world that is made real through it's rich history and lore and it is not hard to see why, while Dragon Age has not been the biggest commercial success of recent times, it has won an army of devoted fans.

If you are a graphics freak then it is highly recommended that you opt for the PC version of the game, as it fares far well visually than either of the consoles. The PS3 offering is the less ugly sister, with improved textures over the 360 but unfortunately it is also the more glitch prone of the two.

The graphics issue is a shame but really doesn't not affect the greatness of this game—big, bold and brilliant, it is a worthy addition to any games shelf.
