Dragon Age: Origins is the first game in BioWare’s RPG franchise Dragon Age. The game is considered to be the spiritual successor of BioWare’s classic fantasy RPG titles like Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights. Developers describe the game's setting as a mix of high fantasy and low fantasy. The storyline is centered around the event known as Blight, which occurs once in several hundred years and marks the demonic invasion in the world of Thedas. The player creates its character by choosing its appearance, class, and race. There are 3 and three races in Dragon Age. The classes are the warrior, mage, rouge, and races are human, elf, and dwarf. The combination of class and race determines the character’s background story and the beginning of the game. The interaction between the player, his teammates and NPC’s is an integral part of the game. The game’s storyline often makes the player take moral decisions which affect his later interaction with characters and the game world in general.

Dragon Age: Origins reviews and comments

Tried to pick up every book and girl.

I played through the Game and I'm very happy that I bought it. Dragon Age Origins is a very challenging Game that offers a lot of Opportunities to customize the Game. This takes the Form of group selection to combat Tactics and, above all, the Dialogues that contain many Decisions in the Game. The Characters are sophisticated and usually have good Dialogues. I myself have made it difficult for myself, because Having Morrigan and Alistar in the Group makes it hard to get with everyone on 100% "friendly"-"love." I encourage everyone to be interested in this Game, this Game and hope he has a lot of Fun with it.

What stands out at the Game are the well-crafted Characters. They're not just Figures you play, but everyone is an interesting Personality. The story is not screamingly original, but well implemented and I had many exciting Hours, as is the Case with a good Book. In the End, you want more. That's a good Sign, I'd think. Character Development leaves enough Freedom to unfold in any Direction. Since you have several Companions anyway, it doesn't matter if you hunchop you. The others level with, even if they are not in the active Group. This leaves Room for Experimentation. So all in all, a successful RPG, which I can only recommend.

This is definitely one of the best Role-playing Games I've ever been allowed to play. The Game Mechanics, Characters and Quests are so completely different from traditional Methods that it's really outstanding. No more Tasks that are completely one-stage and stupid ("Kill 50 Wild boars! ..." "Oh, juchu, you killed 50 Wild Boars, here's your Reward.") -no, every Task is so complex and linked to the whole Story that it really ties you to the Chair. Everything you do and say always has a Consequence, in most Cases these Consequences are completely different and affect the Course of History differently. The Control in Combat is extremely unusual for me. You control each Group member individually and at the same time, luckily there is the Break Button, otherwise I would be completely overwhelmed. In My View, the Fighting is really challenging and relatively difficult. A small, stupid Mistake is enough to completely dirty the whole Fight. I have often been very happy that I was able to save and load. In any case, the System cannot be compared to any other RPG I have played so far, in which usually only the Final Bosses are really heavy and the Rest ripples in front of them. That makes the Threat more real you face within history. Great done. I recommend this Game to anyone who loves good Stories and really wants to empathize with a Role-playing game and its Characters. Nothing for Hack 'n Slayer.
