6 things I hate about Dragon age: Origins

Some of the many things that I hate about the game called “Dragon Age: Origin”:

  1. Bad retarded graphics.

The graphics in this game are basically bad, they try to cover things up with some blur and full screen effects, but the result still sucks. Most of the objects in the game world are have low geometry. Check out my comments in the picture below:

2. PS1 like magic spells.

In a game of this genre, I always expect to see cool spells and magic effects. Well in this game most of the spells remind me of my old PlayStation one. Even there the Magic in Final fantasy IX was pretty spectacular. See an example in the pic below:

3. Crappy combat system.

As I usually do, I chose a mage as my main character in the game, for a start, your character will not respond to an attacker unless you ask him to, and then you will basically have to press “1” or “2” on your keyboard to lunch a spell, then you will have to wait until some count down is over to get to do the same spell again. And that, my friend is no fun.

4. Limited movement possibilities.

You are only allowed to walk in specific regions, don’t dream about crossing water, or even touching it. I think that the animation of footsteps in water is too complicated for our gurus here.

5. Bad long conversation and non-sense replies.

Every time you engage in a conversation, you will be given the chance to choose what to say from 3 or 4 options, most of the time, 1 option will make you sound gay, and the other 3 will make you a total jerk. They should have learned from “Rise of the Argonauts” when each conversation option is influenced by the teachings of some Greek god, and hence each answer is rational and reflects a well specific personality. But here you are just too rude or too nice.

6. You will never get to hear your part of the conversation.

I think that recording multiple conversations in multiple voices was just too troublesome for the developers of this game. But my problem is, why did you decide to record to other part of the conversation? It would be just ok with text conversations as it is in many other role playing games.

Are you a dragon age : Origin fan ? come on! get our of here, or at least tell us what you like about this game.
