    Strange, plays like one.

    I made the game a bit more tactical by using curses etc instead of the no-friendly-fire-zone-spells.

    On topic: I haven't finished awakening yet, so I'll pass on DA2 for now.
    You can push it however much you want, it wo'nt explode I swear. Only excessive overclocking\overheating can damage your card. Pushing the settings higher won't do that.
    Usually some graphic options tend to use alot of gpu power (the graphic card's processor), you can just run a few tests to see what makes the game smoother etc. Generally I prefer a higher resolution with less fancy effects (especially on a big screen)

    Just beat the game, turns out the person behind the interrogation of was a member of the first games party, maybe you may have killed that person in your imported run of the first game and it may be a different ending. Who I got I'll never tell.

    Okey, am I being suspicious or is it normal this review doesn't seem to adress any of the major flaws of the game.
    o_o
    I mean, at least to mention the fact that there's basically 2 models of "inside a place in the city" and 1 and a half type of cavern for the whole game.. seems reasonable to me... also there's nothing 'awesome' about having a 50 hours long rpg mostly happen in one, utterly unrealistic small city ('official offices in the street, wierd harbor, few interactions, every house is the same inside with more or less opened doors depending on the mission, 90% of dialogue options are meaningless as they end up in violence for no good reason anyway)

    Games journalists are notoriously corrupt. If it's not outright bribes, it's advertising revenue and corporate pressure. Even "journalist" parties, or whatever the events where they get free stuff are called.

    Is the post above you a serious spoiler? My mind wiped before it had a chance to fully form in my consciousness. "Just beat the game" is one of the trigger phrases.

    I loved flawed games before, like vampire bloodlines for example. That's not the issue, but not even mentioning the issues and just calling everything awesome, even the shitty camera, is just not something i'd imagine a serious non completly blinded by fanboyishness reviewer would do. 94% and calling DA 2 better than DA:O is just.. I mean it's not even a matter of opinions, you can make a long list of what da:O has and DA2 has less of and the list of enhancements is extremely short.

    I'm being careful enough not to actually spoil a thing. Also, remember that there are multiple endings. You have no clue what happens at the end. Not a one.

    I think the love for that games comes from the bits that aren't flawed. You know, most of it.

    I'm gonna guess it's a big spoiler then.

    Remember, "there's a twist" is a spoiler. That sentence alone has lowered my enjoyment of so many stories. It's so much easier to guess a twist if you know one is coming.

    Any vague allusion to an event in the second half is definitely a spoiler.
