We reported a while back that Dragon Age II is coming. Today we have the first trailer. Now the trailer is very good looking, however, it is not game play, and you know my thoughts on giving judgment on a game’s look before I see game play.
My biggest gripe so far about this game is it’s name. Dragon Age II seems to have nothing to do with Dragon Age: Origins, nothing at all. I guess I can kind of see naming it Dragon Age since the name is recognizable and the game did well, but people who bought the first game could be disappointed if they buy the sequel and expect the same experience, because they aren’t getting it. One main character to choose from, less choice in the type of character you will play, these are fundamental changes to the game, I feel it makes it not really a sequel but a different game set in the same universe. much like Halo Wars is set in the Halo universe but couldn’t be called Halo 4.
You can see the trailer below.
Dragon Age II comes out March 8th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Thoughts?
