As an analyst, most of my time is doing technology comparisons. For all Dragon Age gamers out there, here’s a side-by-side comparison of the hero companions between the two versions:
As far as clear winners, I’m biased towards the first since only Varric and Isabela are the interesting characters in the second series. I know it is a subjective issue but the overall storyline of the first companions made the game for me. That doesn’t mean that DA II isn’t a decent action-based RPG.
Is Dragon Age a victim of its own success? Feel free to contribute to the poll.
