Dragon Age 2 Reviews: BioWare and Gamers Disappointed

By Tina Chubb - Mar 13, 2011

We’ve seen quite a few different reviews for the recently released Dragon Age 2 game now and just as expected, they are not all positive. In fact, as we previously mentioned, Edge magazine gave the role-playing game a disappointing score of 6/10.

However, some of our readers felt that the score was totally justified, with some even stating that they too were disappointed with the game. One gamer even went as far as describing the combat as boring and the characters as dull.

As Gary Johnson recently noted, the Dragon Age 2 game is not a direct sequel to the Dragon Age: Origins title, and that is perhaps why some gamers have been left feeling disappointed with the second installment. Although as the saying goes, you can’t please everyone.

Robert Purchese over at eurogamer.net got a chance to interview Mike Laidlaw – the lead designer of the Dragon Age 2 game – recently, and asked him what he thought of the criticism. As Mike pointed out, they knew that making changes would carry some sort of risk.

When asked what he thought of the current Metacritic score of 82 percent, he did say that it is a little lower than what they expected. He then explained that as a studio, BioWare aim for a score of above 90. Have you had a chance to play the game yet? If so, what is your opinion?
