Probably not as compelling or even as fun as the first time around but DA2 is worth your time if you like rpg games. Some of the rpg elements have been dumbed down but there is still plenty to micro-manage. I think you have to own the game in order to get your mabari warhound but this time he is not a controllable/upgradeable party member so it's not that much fun having him around. I think purchasers of the game also get access to the Black Emporium which I visited once. I could not afford a single item in it so I think you could get away with renting this game and not miss out on too much. -
Picking up where Dragon Age I left off, this game played out the life of Hawk, a stranded noble forced to leave his home with his family and begin a new life on a distant island nation. From rags to riches, this game has it all. As Hawk, you souround yourself with a band of loyal compatriots and strive to create peace between the mages and the nobles of the island. The game has some striking cut aways and amazing graphics which only enhance an already great storyline. The control you have over the decisions of the characters is vast and alows you to customize your adventure any way you like.
Overall, this was an amazing game and one I'd recomend to anyone why enjoys RPGs.
I know this is like beating a dead horse here but the game doesn't give you any area to explore, you go through the same paths way to many times, and not to mention there aren't any new drops when you do this so it really becomes pointless. If you're hoping for a traditional RPG where you can explore and have multiple chances to get rare items(pretty much being rewarded for exploring) you're wrong...so wrong. The battle is pretty cool, the game will cause you to sit there for hours because it's by no means boring but just to linear.
