Of those here who've played the game: have you found Dragon Age: Origins as disappointing as I have?
No, actually it is best RPG been out for a while i dont know why any1 would say other-wise
I mean... the graphics, rendering and animation really aren't that much better than NwN2, there's no weather, no passage of time (sun & moon movement)... graphically there doesn't seem much improvement
1st of all did u play game on high resolution maxed graphics or just low or normal 1 cuz there is a "big
" deference between i tried them all never felt right playing on low graphics
2nd Dark theme of game over-all gives it its reality and the maps arent repeatable all are unique so u never get the felling u saw that place before somewhere unless it is the same place of course
( Dragon Age 2 Note :those 2 points were Dragon age 2 major fall back bad camera control - repeated maps - less reality graphics - and on the same Pc which runs DA:Origin Maxed on HD run DA2 low and lagging havent they ever heard of performance control )
plus far fewer spells (making mages a lot less fun), fewer learnable techniques/talents... character-building isn't much better, either. (And only a few voices, this time, though admittedly I haven't checked the website to see if anyone uploaded any voice packs . . . I can't adjust how tall or thin my character is . . . and they've gone back to NwN1-style men, except that now, not only do all the Humans look like Mr. Universe, but all the elves as well. Why do I have to play a muscle-bound guy? Surely not for realism's sake, considering the thin-boned elven women who get to swing around great-axes and greatswords and wear really heavy armor.)
*there is alot of skills already and advanced skills and skills combinations in addition to that plot re-acts differently to different builds - u never get to notice those stuff unless u try multi-runs on hard-core lvl
* and actually i loved how pt char talks when u r walking around in addition to the screams of ur main char while clicking on him or through fights but he doesnt talk through conversations if that what u mean u just chose his line kinda creepy sometimes tho
Plus, the narrative is... well... lacking, in comparison to NwN2. The plot as well. I'm not big on plot, generally, but I have to admit that NwN2 had a pretty strong plot and that this plot really did make it that much better a game, whereas Dragon Age has a very thin one. (And it certainly doesn't help to have six different possible openings, although it's an interesting addition. Some of these are better than others.)
NARRATIVE i played same build of same origin never ran in same situation or solved things same way , 1 run saved people other send them to there end
also did u get DL-content with those u can never run out of good stuff
Some parts are a little too predictable, too. And sometimes deliberately so -- Hollywood-style, as if the developers were trying to ease us into what happens because they feel we'll like the game less if we're shocked or surprised.
I agree they did that on purpose cuz if they didnt i would lose track of story line due to loads of details about 200 codecs page no more or less details is required
On the positive side: the dialogue is a little better, generally. Also: I like how they've taken the intra-party banter and made it incidental (although placing some of the triggers just before an area's exit was a pretty bad idea)... but on the other hand: I miss my character being able to interact with the arguing companions, and having to determine what to say knowing that what you say will make one character like you more and another like you less . . . also, the banter is not scripted, it's random, so it doesn't feel so much a part of the story, like the banter in NwN2 did. This is Planescape-style banter -- which is fine . . . but it would've been nice if they'd also kept the NwN2 style banter.
I would like to add that some of the extra Campaigns adds more Back-story and aftermath to it which was nice to i recommend to try them out (5G Extra damn that is alot of space required but worth it if u like the game)
