Not only is the main story line riddled with game ending bugs, but the supposed highlight of the game; weapon collecting and item creation, is also filled with bugs that can ruin your game. Simply type in "dragon age 2 bugs" and you'll find endless chatter about the different bugs that can ruin your hours of work. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS GAME.

I popped in the disc without having read any of the hype, I wanted to experience the next tale in the series, "fresh". Sadly, Instead of a deep game that lays you out a canvas to play against, it holds your hand and guides you. It's dumbed down gaming.
Picked up a "Gathering Resource"? Yep, you'll know it, every time! You get a message, music, art. Armor? Don't worry about that stuff, as long as it has more stars then what you are wearing, it's better. Your comrades will wear their own gear TYVM.
The combat, while better in terms of fluidity, is BORING. It's a button masher. It's... Double Dragon meets Dragon Age. I'm 10 hours into the game, and the grind of getting through lame combat just to hit the next plot point...
Sorry Bioware, you developed a pretty game, with good controls, but ruined it with the dumbed down hand holding, easy combat and weak story that really... I just don't CARE about the "champion" I'm playing.
This game is boring and repetitive. It's the same missions over and over without any real payoff. The cutscenes are pointless, however it is fun deciding how to answer people. This is nowhere near as fun as KOTOR. Another issue is the difficulty. One moment you are killing enemies faster than you can move the joystick, the next you run into a battle where you have no chance. The characters all sucked and the voice acting made me laugh a little when I first heard the main characters saucy accent.
