So I got the game on release date, and I got to say that this RPG is really addictive! It's been awhile since I've played an 80 hour RPG, it's definitely good to be back. Moving on to the game, the graphics are very good, bad compared to the PS3 and PC versions. The story is very well done, there are also 6 different Origin story's for you to chose from depending on the character you make. Battling the enemies in the game is the best part, very addicting! Though dieing is kind of common, good thing for the self-healing. Also, every conversation you have with a character, they have have voicing, and I mean EVERY CONVERSATION!! I can tell they spent so much time on this game, well they did start back in 2004, so yeah. Great voices, BTW. This game is really great!! I LOVE it!

9.4/10

For those that have, what are your thoughts?

I have not played Warden's Keep, it costs Microsoft points. So it's not free. I'm glad Stone Prisoner came free with it, otherwise...bye bye 1200 Microsoft points.

I think I'll rent Dragon Age when I get a chance. I've never been keen on games with generic Medievel fantasy settings, and I know nothing of the gameplay, but I have a feeling I might like this game.

Depends if you like RPGs with a deep plot and tactical battle strategies, not to mention over 80 hours of gameplay.

Well, I've never been too keen on game stories, and since I never beat games anyways, length doesn't really matter to me. I've haven't been following the game at all, so I know nothing about the gameplay. I do like strategy, though, provided I can understand the mechanics.

Again, I'll probably just rent it and see how it is.

Ah I was about to start a thread here on this! I adore Bioware big stylee, not that I liked the original Mass Effect.

Classical RPGs like Baldur's Gate, Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale...omg, I loves them so much. Not so keen on NWN, I never could get into the graphical style. Hopefully...Dragon Age will keep me addicted, I need an RPG fix and I need it NOW.

What i don't understand is why the graphical differences between the consoles and PC. Why wouldn't Bioware make the graphics better for both machines? I'll never understand it. I would post my impressions but i didn't get mine today it's tomorrow when i get it (payday). I'm getting mine for the ps3 though,But really it's the same game so regardless I'll try my best to make time to post thoughts.No promises, games like this devour me

I've not actually looked into the differences but I imagine for PC and 360, it'll be different because of Windows supporting DX9 onwards but the 360's only DX9.

As for the PS3, I don't know. I think I need to do some reading..

80 hours!? Is that for one play through or due to the multiple character options?

If that's just one playthrough I want me some of this.

One playthrough is longer than 150 hours if you do a lot of quests and one playthrough can take hundreds of hours maybe even a thousand if you do everything. This game will keep you occupied for a long time
