  1. I burned through this game
    by Paul Fischer, USA - Nov 22nd 2017

    It took me about 34.5 hours to beat the game beginning to end and along the way any skepticism I had about purchasing the game was abolished. The gameplay and innovation were on the same level and higher than smaller projects I had enjoyed. There were no bugs such as those found in Blackguard or voice acting fails such as in Two Worlds Two. The gameplay was tough enough to keep me on my seat at an advanced setting but doable such that I could power through it.

  2. Nicht wie Dragon Age 1 - aber trotzdem gut!
    by Schulle, Germany - Sep 21st 2017

    Meine Rechnerkonfiguration: iMac late 2013 27", i5, 16GB RAM, GTX780M 4GB, macOS 10.12.6.
    Das Spiel lief in höchster Auflösung bei mittleren Grafikeinstellungen absolut flüssig. Ich hatte während der gesamten Spielzeit (75 Stunden) insgesamt fünf Abstürze: Zweimal hat der Programmabsturz eine Kernelpanik verursacht. Zweimal hat sich das Programm so aufgehangen, dass ich dieses nicht mehr verlassen konnte und den Rechner neu starten musste. Der fünfte Absturz war ein ganz „normaler" Programmabsturz.

    Nun zum Spiel. Wer Dragon Age 1 gespielt hat wird möglicherweise enttäuscht sein. Die Spielewelt ist nicht offen. Man bewegt sich außerhalb der Stadt in vorgegebenen Schlauchwegen. Es sind verschiedene Orte besuchbar, diese sehen von ihrer Gestaltung her aber alle gleich aus. Das gleiche gitl für alle Höhlen sowie für die Örtlichkeiten innerhalb der Stadt oder innerhalb der Gebäude. Die Wohnhäuser haben sogar alle den gleichen Grundriss.
    Auch die Charaktererstellung ist weniger komplex als in Dragon Age 1.
    Ob sich das Spiel beim Kampfsystem an das Dungeon and Dragons Regelwerk hält weiß ich nicht. Ich hatte eher nicht den Eindruck. Trotzdem bieten die Kämmpfe mehr als ausreichend Optionen, um verschiedene Taktiken anwenden zu können.
    Den Fähigkeitenbaum fand ich sehr übersichtlich und gut verständlich. Die Attributvergabe ist im Vergleich zu anderen Rollenspielen vereinfacht.

    Die Synchronstimmen passen sehr gut zu den Charakteren. Die Charaktergestaltung ist wie bei Bioware-Rollenspielen üblich sehr komplex und tiefgründig. Das gilt insbesondere auch für die Geschichte. Wenn man nicht in 25 Stunden durch das Spiel hetzt sondern sich die Zeit nimmt, die Welt zu erkunden und Gespräche zu führen, Notizen und Bücher zu lesen, sowie allle sich bietenden Aufgaben erfüllt, entfaltet sich eine umfangreiche, mitreißende Geschichte die einen immer weiter vorwärtstreibt. Ich kam so auf 75 unterhaltsame Spielstunden.
    Wer Rollenspiele mag kann das Spiel bedenkenlos kaufen.


    [My computer configuration: iMac late 2013 27 ", i5, 16GB RAM, GTX780M 4GB, macOS 10.12.6.

    The game ran in the highest resolution with medium graphics settings absolutely liquid. I had a total of five crashes during the entire game time (75 hours): Twice the program crash caused a kernel cannon. Twice the program has hung up so that I could not leave this and the computer had to restart. The fifth crash was a quite "normal" program crash.

    Now to the game. Who played Dragon Age 1 may be disappointed. The game world is not open. One moves outside the city in predetermined hose paths. There are different places to visit, but they look the same from their design. The same gitl for all caves as well as for the localities within the city or within the buildings. The houses all have the same floor plan.
    Character creation is less complex than in Dragon Age 1.
    I do not know whether the game in the combat system to the Dungeon and Dragons rules. I had not the impression. Nevertheless, the crimps offer more than enough options to be able to apply different tactics.
    The skills tree I found very clear and easy to understand. The attribute assignment is simplified in comparison to other roll games.

    The sync voices match very well with the characters. The character design is, as with Bioware-Rollenspielen usual very complex and profound. This applies in particular to history. If you do not run through the game in 25 hours but take the time to explore the world and to talk, to read notes and books, and to fulfill all the tasks you have to offer, an extensive, stirring story unfolds , I came so on 75 entertaining games.

    If you like roll games, you can buy the game without hesitation.]

  3. Sabotaged by DRM protection
    by Elias Chapelle, USA - Jul 12th 2017

    I purchased Dragon Age II when it was first released. Recently, I attempted to reinstall it on my MacBook Pro only to be blocked by hidden file checking software within the program called 'securom' which would not let me install the software. I soon discovered that this 'securom' was a long standing irritant to buyers of Dragon Age II (for that matter other EA and Origins products as well). All attempts to fix this have failed. Perhaps you will be luckier than I, My purchase of Dragon Age II was via an online retailer that no longer exists.

    UPDATE: It has been a frustration couple of days but I finally got my Dragon Age 2 install working. However if you ask me how, I doubt that I can recreate the convoluted method I used to get it done after 3 more unsuccessful attempts. I also remembered why I vowed never, never, never to buy a game from EA/Origins again as I sat glassy-eyed examined other EA 'games' I own that no longer function. The secret to installing Dragon Age 2 on a Mac is first to change the current date on your Mac to '3/11/2014' in order to bypass the securom date check. You can put the correct date back later. Next, you need an account both at EA and Origins to complete the authorizations neccessary to actually play the game. Beware that both EA and Origins verification methods for registration are not user friendly. And last of all, I changed the rating above - The game itself is truely a 4-5 star game; but Mac support from EA/Origin however remains a 1 star.

    I also installed my Dragon Age: Origins for Mac (purchased back in 2009) with no problems whatsoever and without the idiiotic stumbling blocks of Dragon Age 2.

    The gameplay is really fluid and there's no bug and certainly it only take 2gb ram which is very good playing on a laptop!

  6. Like the game
    by mckeans, USA - Jun 7th 2015

    I like the game and everything but every time I try to open it it won't connect to the ea company so I can't actually play it. I've looked up what to do and a ton of people had the same problem. If I had done some research I wouldn't have wasted 18 dollars on a game I can't even play.

  7. Fantastic!! Get them both!
    by Stephan Roberts, USA - May 20th 2015

    I absolutely love both of the Dragon Age games and have gladly sacrificed hundreds of hours on each - especially the 'never-ending' original. This is a more streamlined sequel - about an 8gb install, compared to the beastly 25gb of the complete Origins. They both run great on my late 2010 MacBook Air (4 GB RAM / Nvidea 320M / 10.6.8 Snow Leopard). Grab both of them on sale if you can (I was able to get them together here in a bundle for $19.99 several years back - best money I have ever spent in my 20+ years of gaming!! One final note about their age - don't worry - they both look beautiful, even without maxed out video settings. Hope you enjoy them as well...

  9. A pacifier until Witcher 3 Arrives.
    by janglehorse, USA - Jun 23rd 2014

    We've got story, character deign that's poor but not distractingly so, and elements of RTS, hack 'n slash, and turn based combat. A solid way to winnow away the days after the top shelf games have been exhausted.

  10. A pesar de todo
    by noeml, Mexico - Mar 20th 2014

    Este juego sólo corre en la más nueva de mis macs. es pesado y es una descarga muy grande. también tiene de malo que es de estrategia, pero se puede jugar de un modo parecido a primera persona, que es más mi tipo de juegos.

    los gráficos son buenos y la trama es entretenida. el hecho de que se pueda jugar con múltiples variaciones del personaje, as como su final abierto a las decisiones morales del jugador hacen de este un t tulo que volver a a comprar.

    (This game only runs on the newest of my macs. is heavy and it is a very large download. Also is wrong strategy, but you can play in a similar way to the first person, which is more my type of game.

    The graphics are good and the plot is entertaining. the fact that you can play with multiple variations of the character, as well as its open to moral decisions Player end make this a title to return aa t buy.)

  11. Ok but could've been much better!
    by tulmax82, USA - Mar 18th 2014

    I love the Dragon Age series, so I had great expectations on DA2, unfortunately my expectations were not fully met. The characters are well developed but somehow you don't get as attached to them as you probably did in DA1; the main storyline is very well conceived, but the side quests are very boring; the sceneries are nice but everytime they are a big copy-paste of already visited areas (nothing to do with the first DA that was just fantastic!). All in all 3 stars, but only because I love the series...

  12. Dragon Age 2
    by Grandmaperson, USA - Mar 12th 2014

    This could be a much better game, but missed the mark. The graphics and action of figures is good, but the story lags. Wanted to like it more.

  15. Don't bother
    by W'rkncacnter, Germany - Dec 9th 2013

    Pick up DA:Origins if you haven't already and really want to play a Dragon Age game. This one felt like a great step back for me. It's very linear and has not a lot to offer.
