Thousands of others had the same thought though and the Kirkwall City Guard are refusing entry to all but a select few Ferelden citizens who have the influence (meaning: money) to grease the wheels of bureaucracy. After calling on your mother’s remaining family you find how far their name has fallen since she left – and are recruited along with your sibling into working to pay for entry into the city.

There’s been a significant graphical overhaul on the game’s engine, which now supports DirectX 11 features. It is though still the basic Eclipse engine that Origins was built around. This is great news for scalability; the minimum specs are the same here as they were for Origins and you’ll get good frame rates out of mid-range systems with DX11 features disabled. Even updated though,

To make Origins, BioWare dredged up buckets of backstory from the minds of their best writers. A new land was invented, branded with religious intolerance and inherent racism. Then, once the continent of Thedas was concrete, BioWare forgot they’d invented all that engaging stuff and slapped a typical ‘kill the big bad thing’ fantasy plotline on top. For all its size and wonder, Origins didn’t make full use of its fascinating world.

Overall the mix of characters that you come across are a fairly diverse and likable lot. There is the dwarf rogue Varric who tells a good tale and has very close relationship with his powerful crossbow. Mage Anders gave up being a Grey Warden to help the poor and unfortunate in Kirkwall, but is caught in the middle of the Templars progressively more brutal attempts to pacify the mages of the city. And there’s Isabela, a drunken pirate captain without a boat, but with a fair capacity for greed, treachery and a hell of a lot of flirting.

Der heruntergefahrene Aufwand der Entwickler wird bereits beim Spielstart deutlich. Dragon Age 2 verzichtet auf die beliebten Origins-Intros des Vorgängers. Stattdessen wählen wir eine aus drei unterschiedlichen, nur in kurzen Filmschnipseln präsentierten Vorgeschichten, die erzählen, was im Finale von Teil 1 passiert ist. Alternativ können wir wie in Mass Effect unseren Spielstand von Origins importieren.

Origins was an epic fantasy, taking your protagonist to far-off lands in search of allies to defeat an encroaching doom. Dragon Age II keeps things on a smaller scale. Almost all the action takes place in Kirkwall, with your party wandering between the uncreatively named Hightown, Lowtown, and Darktown, solving problems like tracking down NPCs’ lost family members and stopping criminal activity.

Dragon Age II is a great game for fans and on the whole, but a handful of the features it boasts come accompanied by disappointing sacrifices that are particularly painful to those who have come to love and expect so much from the series. Be sure to take the handful of bad instances with the good, and you’ll find plenty to like about Dragon Age’s second installment.

Dragon Age 2 is quite nice looking in terms of the level of detail in everything. Whether it’s environments, NPCs, or monsters, everything looks quite nice with a high level of detail to it. While the game does look good, some of the animations aren’t all that great. Facial expressions sometimes come off awkward, and the way that characters walk, especially when pacing while giving dialogue, is actually pretty bad (it looks like they have a large, metal rod shoved up their rear ends). What really hurts the visuals is that so many areas look the same.

The combat is faster and can be very enjoyable. Enemy encounters are more action-oriented and there’s less emphasis on tactics this time around. It’s still advisable to pause the battle every now and then, but to experienced Dragon Age players, the battles should be a peace of cake in real-time. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It actually makes battles a lot more fun in real-time than they were before, which is a step forward so to speak, at least for those of you who prefer fighting in real-time. Of course, more experienced RPG players are advised to increase the difficulty setting to ‘Hard’ or even ‘Nightmare’ so as to get more challenge out of each fight. We also appreciated the cool variety of boss encounters that were thrown into the game.
