GameCritics gives us a second opinion, which arrives at a perfect score of 10/10:
It's very easy to write off Dragon Age as yet another fantasy RPG trying to siphon off what originality remains in the creations of J.R.R. Tolkien, and for the first few hours it certainly feels that way. But once I met my companions and the massive world of Ferelden began to show its true colors, it became clear that Dragon Age is without peer within its genre. As Brad said, nobody does this kind of game better than BioWare, and with Dragon Age they topped even themselves. After creating a wonderful universe full of plot intrigue and interesting dynamics in Mass Effect, BioWare did it again in a totally different setting with a brand new cast. And here I was thinking I was going to have to wait until Mass Effect 2 for something to outdo the original. I was wrong, and I'm very glad that I was.
And then RatedG4Gamer clocks in with an 8.5/10:
Bioware have done it again! Dragon Age: Origins provides hundreds of hours of gameplay surrounding an epic story with diverging plot lines, engrossing characters, three character classes, and a tonne of side quests. With additional download content already available and more on the horizon, it's a game that will provide a lot of bang for your buck. RPG fans rejoice!
