I am in the same boat as you. I got DA:o ultimate edition with all the DLC a couple weeks ago and love it. Im starting my 2nd
play through to pick up some more achievements. I see that you haven't done much in the first game and would recommend playing through it doing the DLC as well, the ultimate editing comes with all that and i got it for less than $30 at gamestop. Best deal
I've gotten there since the orange box...
I was also wondering as well though if the 2nd was worth it, I've heard some negative feedback from fans of the first game
Alot of people complain about this game and in many ways it is a step down from the original. Overall origins is a much better game. With that said despite all of it's flaws I still fine DA 2 really fun to play.
Id agree ^. No way this game can be completed in 20 hours. I bought the Bioware Sig Ed, on pre-order for £45 around $60. For the total number of hours it has given me, it is one of the best value for money games I have bought, to date.
Great game, boring at times & complicated (for me anyway), but still worth the money. I played through it without really knowing what I was supposed to do (with the spells, buffs, etc), wish I had read up abit about them before I played it. My advice is
to have a look at it online to atleast point you in the right direction.
