The short review
This game is a cross between: Neverwinter Nights/World of Warcraft
It’s good because: • Great story • In depth NPC relationships • Cool combat animations
It’s bad because: • You must travel with a balanced party
The long version
Kick ass storyline
The storyline of Dragon Age: Origins is by far one of the best story lines from any RPG that I have played. For starters depending on your race and class the first chapter of the game is different.
I went with a Human Noble in an attempt to recreate my character from the original Neverwinter Nights. That’s all I’ll say on the matter as to not give away any spoilers.
One of the rather odd things I found about Dragon Age: Origins is the ability to have sex with your companions. Som
e companions even swing both ways depending on how you want your character to act. These sex scenes are accompanied by some absolutely awful cinematics (with great ‘O’ faces) that just made me cringe.
