    Is Dragon Age II better than Two Worlds II ??? If so, just graphically or ???

    For the Dragon Age II owers, is the Dragon Age Ultimate (Origins) pak a must? The graphics on the vid looked MUCH MUCH worse than the Dragon Age II vids? Is that case?


    oh and the most obvious, is Dragon Age WORTH 59 USD???? Damn expensive download, the priciest out there! IS it because JUST came out, hence wait for 6 months or so, for a drastic drop in price?

    Way better, DAII was a rush job. Read some reviews.

    DA:O and DAII might share the same world, but they are different games.

    DAII is more action-oriented, with elements from Mass Effect incorporated into the game. DA:O is more closely aligned with traditional RPG games.

    DAII re-hashes a lot of the same dungeons in different locations and doesn't bother to update the mini-map to show what sections have been blocked off for each particular instance of a dungeon. Like Cougarcat said, it's a rush job. DA:O uses individually crafted, unique dungeons for each different location.

    DAII predominantly takes place in the same city, with some excursions to wilderness areas around the city. DA:O takes you to completely different cities and areas.

    I had fun playing DAII, but it's not the same as DA:O. Eventually I got so sick of being in the same city and same dungeons that I just rushed to beat DAII. DA:O is, in my opinion, a far better game and is more than twice the hard drive space in size as DAII, to give you an idea of how much more unique area DA:O has over DAII.

    If you want a simplified game where you can grow to be the hero and run around and beat stuff down, play DAII. If you want a well done RPG, play DA:O.

    Even Bioware has said Dragon Age 2 was pretty much a letdown.

    I absolutely loved DAO, but after playing the demo for DA2 I didn't even bother buying it.

    either DA 2 or two worlds 2 is not good game at all. if you want real decent RPG, get the witcher 2. you can get such a premium rich content retail box version. it's like back in 1990s old days. I love my retail version. if you want digital, D2D sells it $39.95 now.
