Upon finishing Mass Effect 3, I decided to load up Dragon Age II (note that this was not inspired by the recent news that Bioware is officially done with Dragon Age II; it ended up being a happy coincidence of timing.) The review I wrote shortly after DAII launched still holds true today, almost word for word. The only exception to this is the DirectX 11 problems, which have long since been hammered out. Now, the game positively sings on my 560ti running at 1920 x 1080, with all of the graphics options spiked and the hi-res pack enabled.

As a sequel, Dragon Age II was rather disappointing. When taken as its own independent experience however, it’s actually quite an enjoyable game. Give our original review a read, then go and load up another trip into Kirkwall; I think you’ll be pleasently surprised at what you find.
