Dragon Age: Origins, Worth Buying

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Is dragon age origins worth getting, I have been watching trailers and it looks pretty good. I like old style medieval fighting(swords and all(lieke TES) and I see this game is full of it.

it plays just like all other bioware rpgs games in that style, kotor, neverwinter nights, baldurs gate.

overhead and you issue orders and tell your men what to do. not like TES at all.

I recommend it for a buy. The story is above average, but predictable. The combat isnt the pinnacle of what bioware has done, seems like every game they dumb it down it a little bit more each release.

I've yet to play it but my roommate loves it, and it looks rather fun. It's not unlike Mass Effect, but it has a much stronger RPG feel. It's definitely not a shooter if that's what you're looking for.

Roommate says the story/characters are phenomenal though, so I'm waiting for a good steam sale myself.

$32 for ALL dragon age content isn't good enough?

Everyone I know who bought it loved it. The gore level is above average, too, if you're into that kinda thing.

Personally, I can't put it on KotoR level, but, it's not even a whole peg below it. That could just be the lack of lightsabers, though.

Absolutely awesome game, I recommend it!

Although the main storyline is generally the same, playing a different race/class combination can keep the game interesting for multiple playthroughs.
