Evil Avatar drops in with a perfect score of 5/5:
One particular area I am always concerned about when playing through lengthy games is the possibility of general game fatigue. I could either grow tired of the story, get lost on side missions, or start to hate the general mechanics and ultimately just shut off the game with a "I'll come back to this later" thought, never to return. Thankfully, that just wasn't the case here at all. With plenty of different endings, six origin stories each changing the world's perception of you, and having a plethora of important decisions to make throughout, you'll certainly get your money's worth. As long as you've got the gumption and staying power, you won't find a better true RPG on the market for this generation.
Gaming Target doles out an 8.5/10:
If you're looking for the best RPGs of the Hi-Def Era, this game certainly ranks near the top alongside Lost Odyssey and Valkyria Chronicles. With a decent storyline, hundreds of quests and missions, along with downloadable content the game could easily take anyone over 100+ hours to beat it; and that's not including the game's multiple endings.
And Gamepex decides to go with a 90/100:
Dragon Age is definitely a vast game and if your looking for bang for your buck, you won't be disappointed. You'll pour hours into the game without really noticing how much time you really are spending, and when you look at your overall progress, you'll be amazed at how little you've actually completed. The main campaign spans dozens of hours and that doesn't even include any of the DLC content. The difficulty level and micro-managing inventory and party members is certainly something that isn't for everyone, but if you can look past those aspects you'll be very satisfied with your purchase. While the game isn't perfect, it does so many things so well that it places itself in the upper echelon of RPGs.
