Maybe it’s just the indie snob in me, but I have to say that Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect (oh, and Fallout 3/NV) are some of the most overrated games of all time. So I wasn’t really expecting much from Dragon Age II except a new style and perhaps faster combat. You know, for the kids.
Yahtzee finds that this game suffers from a bad case of sequel-itis, not really offering any real story or gameplay advances — just another entry in a successful new franchise. Oh well! I’m happy playing Secret of Mana anyway.
