Picked up DA2. For $11 it seems worth it. I just will go into the game expecting it to be nowhere near as good as DA1 and hopefully I will not be disappointed.

What I have read from people is the game is more disappointing as a sequel to an amazing game rather than being a BAD game.

Registered it on my Origin account no problem.

I don't know, I think you might be selling it short. It had a decent story, but very repetitive environments. I played all the way through it and for the most part enjoyed it. That said, I would not recommend anyone pay more than 20 for it, but its certainly a serviceable RPG with good voice acting.

Don't get it. Words fail to express the level of disappointment that is the second half of Dragon Age II.

It's worse than not playing it at all because the first half builds expectations so high.

I'm tempted to pick up Homefront at that price, but between Deus Ex, Dead Island soon, the upcoming onslaught of releases, and the backlog I already have, I know I won't end up playing it until it's on sale for $5 somewhere.

DA2 is not a perfect game and parts of it feel rushed, but as far as storytelling and characters, it's classic Bioware quality.

It's still playable but I seem to remember 800 or so online last time I played. Which is kinda sad for a game that released earlier this year.

Saying it's not worth $5 is extreme exaggeration. As a video game, it's fine. As a Dragon Age game it didn't live up to the first, but that's no reason to write it off as trash. It's a great game for $10 if anyone is interested in buying it. I enjoyed it greatly, despite its flaws.

I just want to know if it will destroy the warm afterglow feeling I had with DA:O... the demo kind of killed my want of finishing the 2nd play through of O... but I heard some story elements were piss poor about blood mages and another group (not going into spoilers). Don't want a Matrix R/R experience.

I played through the first one several times. I think that the second Dragon Age is almost like a side story with some of the same characters. The end really depends on some of the choices you make, so just like the first one your enjoyment may be based on what choices you make throughout the game.

I have put many hours into the first one, and I absolutely feel that the second is worth playing and did not ruin the story. In fact, it really helped expand one character and some of the choices towards the end were very interesting to me. Just don't expect it to be as good as the first, because in most ways, it is not.

Agreed w/ that.
I thought it was worth the $30 or so I spent on it, actually.

But, yeah - DA2 is definitely nowhere as great as DAO.
DA2 is easily worth the $12 or so D2D is asking for it.

I would go as far as saying that Dragon Age 2 isn't even worth the time it takes to play it.

You have now posted twice about this, would you care to elaborate? I've played 100's of hours of both games and I'm interested to hear the other side of it.

It's a really good game. Really really good game. Like, just beat it and going to definetly play through again. It's not perfect, it didn't revolutionize the world of video games, but it's probably in my top 20-30 games of all time, and I've played a ton of video games back from the 1980's. Yes, I'm old.

Well.. I suppose that is an opinion. But few games of this caliber exist, and fewer exist that allow you to continue the story from the previous game that you customized. End of Halo is the same for pretty much everyone - which is fine, awesome game, but it's a different type of game.

For the cost of less than most XBLA games, you can have an amazing experience for well over 100 hours if you play it through a couple of times. My next playthrough is going to be as a magic hating blood mage.

So if I never played any of the DAOs and don't have more than 10-20 hours total to pour into a game, what would be a better experience, I or II?

Neither. You probably should avoid RPGs in general if you dont have more than 10-20 hours.
