Liked the story but the game was incredibly glitchy. The game would freeze periodically forcing you to shut down and restart (hopefully you saved recently), but more so is the flawed combat system. I spent twenty hours making it to the ending battles only to find them too infuriating to press forward. You, and your companions, get swarmed by troops and no matter how many times you press the quick heal short cut, you get massacred constantly. Many of the tougher adversaries have attacks that leave you helpless and deplete 50% or more of your health despite your level or armor ratings. Dropping it to an easier difficulty to get past this sections of the game did nothing and it left me aggravated that I wouldn't see the very end of the game after logging so many hours already.

This is a game that is just wonderful. It has an interesting story and is filled with interesting characters and locations. This game is a must have if you enjoy RPGs of any kind. On the downside, combat is a bit too easy. I went the entire game on nightmare difficulty without even touching the Tactics screen, and it is very slow pace. Overall, Dragon Age is perfect if you love RPGs.
