Great Game but I was annoyed that one of the biggest fun factor in an RPG - gathering better equipment - is bad in this game. You basicly wear the same armor and use the same swords from beginig to end...
I thoroughly agree.
I usually play mages on RPGs and so I did on Dragon Age. Now I wish I had played it with a warrior/rogue, at least they get some more variaty of weapons/armor.
Graphics & story are superb. I think they could have done a better job with levelling system too. Mayeb I'm used to MMORPGs, where you can grind xp and farm cash & loot awesome stuff. For me gathering and improving weapons and armors to go kill even bigger monsters is what RPGs are about. That's where DragonAge failed big. Even then I put 60 hours on it, doing side quests and taking my time, but quit near the end because the loot dissapointed me so much.
I even tried starting again as a warrior, but doi9ng the same missions over again already knowing what they were about killed the thrill, so I sold the game. Multip`layer would have made an awesome addition to Dragon Age. That and good loot.
Well worth trying it though.
Speaking of RPGs I'm getting Borderlands this evening, a friend recommended it to me and after checking online revies it's a shooting FPS/RPG that mixes diablo, fallout & even Mad Max aspects. eager to try it.
I also started playing Red dead redemption last week, but multiplayer is broken (Rockstar are working on a path to fix it), and the single player got old really fast for my taste. Though it's a great game and will come back to oit as soon as they fix MP.
