Having loved games like Fable III and Alan Wake and LA Noire, I am finding Dragon Age II to be about 50/50. I love how you can swap out players and how your decisions really affect the game, I just wish there was more fighting.
Took me awhile to get into this game myself. At first, it bored me but after awhile I started to enjoy it (I had the same hing happen to me with Final Fantasy IX). It does have it's flaws, just like any other game, but if you do like western RPG's, stick
with it. It is a good game... just takes awhile to get into.
