Disappointment is how I would describe what I felt when playing this game. As a stand alone game it would have been alright. Maybe it would have been worth my time but as a sequel to Dragon Age: Origins it was a huge departure from that great game. First of all the plot drags on with not much happening at all making for a very slow and painful experience until the final few hours when something other than running errands for numerous people happened. The environments are also recycled over and over again, it's as if they only had one guy doing art and he only had a week. Many of the role playing elements that were present in the first are also gone such as the customisation of your party. I would not recommend playing this unless you really want to find out what happens in the end.
