Dragon Age: Origins Reviews

We can't head into yet another weekend without rounding up the latest reviews of Dragon Age: Origins, can we?

Gamereactor gives it a 9/10:
Dragon Age: Origins is a game you should play regardless of whether you normally enjoy role-playing games. It is among the top games to come out of Bioware, and that says a lot considering it's a studio that has yet to produce a poor game. The dark and adult story will suck you in and keep you hooked all the way to the end, and combined with fierce fighting, a memorable character gallery this is something you can't afford to miss out on.

GamesLatest gives it a 7.0/10:
So Dragon Age maybe a boring looking game, with an unexciting story and cumbersome gameplay, but for those who aren't afraid of micromanaging and want to satiate their RPG desires until next year, this is as good an experience as any they will find right now.

Xbox360Achievements gives it a 91/100:
This is a top notch RPG that rattles along at a great pace and never seems to get dull. Some of the side missions are a bit inane but the wealth of interesting background information coupled with some fantastic characters means you cannot help but be sucked in. Give it a go and you will not be disappointed.

Sliced Gaming gives it an 8/10:
Dragon Age: Origins is a very solid RPG, and for PlayStation 3 owners worth picking up for the many tens of hours it offers. There have been better RPG on other platforms in the last few years, but unfortunately the PS3 is a little stuck for choice in this genre. What really makes this game is the characters and dialogue, even if many things do come across somewhat derivative. Even despite this, there are moments which are very memorable, and will stay with you for a long time.

Team Teabag gives it a perfect 10/10:
I adore this game. Dragon Age is not without niggling issues such as the minor graphical glitches which show up now and again. Those minor issues don't alter the fact that this game is incredible value for money and one of the best I have ever played. At the time of writing there is already one impressive DLC available which boasts an enormous number of additional gameplay hours. I will now finish this review so I can return to the game, then get hold of the DLC, play some more, then wait for even more DLC. This game is incredible.

And GeneralGames remains scoreless:
Dragon Age: Origins has a steep learning curve, but once mastered the game provides a seemingly endless depth of adventure that contains a truly engaging story that will suck players back in hours at a time. Combat is a little annoying with it's stop-and-go nature, but those looking for a tactical experience will enjoy it profusely. There's little to dislike about Dragon Age if you're a fan of traditional BioWare epics, but this is not the game to get if you're a newcomer looking for an ease in to the genre. Players who are willing to invest themselves in to the game will reap the benefits in multitudes with an experience that's long as it is deep and enjoyable.
