Enjoyable, well scripted, technical improvement on first game
The plot seems disjointed and a bit slight
"...actually forgotten a lot about Dragon Age: Origins by the time I got round to this. That doesn’t really matter, though, as this is an expansion of the world of the first game, rather than a direct sequel.
It’s one of those ‘like Tolkien only fun’ vaguely D&D style worlds full of elves and monsters and such. You play as a young hero named Hawke, who can be a fighter, a mage or a rogue in typical RPG fashion – you don’t play as anyone ..."
