Fair

Wasn't that great.

I only played a few hours into this game. It wasn't the greatest thing I've played, and you could definitely tell it was made for computer. A couple points I'd like to make:

- The frame rate skipped at some points, even when there wasn't a lot going on.

- The controls were okay, but you could tell they were made for a mouse and keyboard.

- The graphics weren't bad, but they weren't anything new or decent.

- The character design was alright, nothing too fancy or new.

- The party system was pretty bland, and wasn't streamlined into the game as well as it could have been.

- The inventory and status screens took a long time to access, and weren't very organized.

This game, as I said, would have been a lot better on the PC. I'd avoid it on the PS3 though, and rent Demon's Souls if you're looking for a good RPG experience.

Excellent

Awesome Role-Play Experience

Dragon Age: Origins offers an amazingly well-made storyline. I cannot say how long it's been since I have played a game so well laid out. The dialogue offers very interactive and enjoyable exchanges between the player and Non-Playabale Characters (NPCs) which adds a level of finesse that I haven't seen in other games.


The are some draw-backs though. The combat system, while well designed, is a little choppy and slow (very noticeable too). Also, your character is always covered in specks of blood which is somewhat... unrealistic (in terms of "why doesn't he wipe some of that off"). Also, I have experienced a few minor glitches involved with movement in the enviornment.

However, hours of enjoyable gameplay are to be had with this wonderful epic. It's flaws are easily ignored next to such an awesome storyline. You will not regret checking this one out.
