|Dragon Age II is a single player role-playing game (RPG) for play on the Xbox 360. Epic sequel to the BioWare developed 2009 Game of the Year, Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II continues the adventure with a new hero, Hawke, and utilizes the choices made by the player to affect a story that spans ten years worth of time in-game. Additional game features include: the ability to choose your character's class and sex, a new cinematic in-game experience, a nonlinear narrative and the ability to import saved information from earlier Dragon Age games. About Dragon Age II Embark on an all-new adventure spread across a ten-year span of years with an all-new hero in the multiple award-winning Dragon Age saga. In Dragon Age II you are Hawke, said to have been one of the few to survive the destruction of your homeland. Forced to fight for survival, you gathered the deadliest of allies, amassed fame and fortune and sealed your place in history, eventually becoming in effect a legend in your own time. But legends are all in the telling. Dragon Age II utilizes a nonlinear narrative, taking the form of a story-within-a-story that hinges upon your exploits as told by the storyteller, Varick. Yet like any good storyteller, Varick tends to exaggerate from time to time. When questioned on events related to Hawke, Varick may present a different scenario in which Hawke's exploits play out. It is within these replays that the decisions of the players hold sway, as their particular versions of Hawke relive these events. Is the player's particular version of Hawke, male or female? A warrior, a rogue, or a mage? Is Hawke good-natured or something less than a salt-of-the-Earth type? Is romance in the air amongst characters he/she associates with? These choices are all the player's to make and each affect the the outcome of the story at all levels.|
"...not quite the same game, but where it's different it is better. Limim, GameArena
"A visceral, well-written and worthy sequel to an excellent game, with huge potential to become a modern classic. Phil Iwaniuk, PCFormat
Customer Reviews of Dragon Age 2
Smoke and Mirrors4/25/2013
The combat is certainly more savage & fun to watch, but when u have to press a button for every single attack, it gets to the point where you can't enjoy it anymore. The original game play let u use strategy and then watch the results of ur choices play out. This new system is almost too fast and hectic to be appreciated. They made a similar choice with the path they took after the original game.
Dragon Age 2 Xbox 3601/7/2012
The sequel to the highly successful Dragon Age: Origins by Bioware. The story starts out with you and your family fleeing from the darkspawn. It does allow you to create your own character as in the first dragon age. The graphics in the game are good and the main character has dialogue in this one. Weapons and armor are able to be upgraded. You are able to upgrade your team's weapons, but you are not able to update their clothing. You can add runes to the clothing, but that is the extent. Storyline is engaging, typical of a Bioware rpg, yet somewhat conflicting and forced with the Mage/Templar conflict. The storyline is centered around the city of Kirkwall, and shortly feels repetitive, as does the quest maps. Overall a good rpg, but dissapointing compared to the incredible effort of Origins.
