All About ioannisdenton
AC series is simplistic to a boredom level.. you can beat EVERY game with an atari joystick. cause you need 1 button!!!!!
Seriously behind the great pruduction values lies a pretty BAD game. Combat is retarted, same as EVERY ANNUAL ac game. Platforimg is retarded and meant for kids. hold down forward and run button...
Yet you buy and give the devs the impression that the game is great.
And yeah critisice me down , but you already know i am 100% right.
I know the ending too... yeah great space magic there
Until my current 3rd playthrough i hated DA2. i did not like the combat,
the waves of enemies, Hawke, his voice, Isabella and her sexism, the
companions were not like DA:O, the fact that DA2 is rushed, the lack of
consequences and lots of others.
I was in the camp "DA2 is abysmal so burn every copy".
I decided to replay da2 as i run out of rpg's.
I approached DA2 with the knowledge of the wavy combat so i played more
carefully and not spamming button awesome abilities without a reason.
I approached DA2 with the knowledge that i was going to see "that map" again and again.
I approached DA2 with the knowledge that inevitably the same story will happen.
Suddenly something sparked inside me, the story feels personal now, i feel the
series of events Hawkes is participating is shaping the events that are
to come. this is great. He met Anders in order to participate the expedition in order
to have a chance at kirkwall etc
Some quests really feel very good and i like the fact that the story is not grand epic.
The interactions with companions and friendship-rivarly is the best feature bioware ever made for companions.
I like Isabella, aveline and fenris. Varric feels like a friend like Alistair and Morrigan did. Anders is kinda whinny though but in DAA he was likeable.
The music is fantastic. New tracks and returning themes from DAO.
So many skill tress and there is quite some thought on what you are going
to put points. Damage dealing without any utility or party-friendly talents does
not work for me. i have to move companions out of the way , to
reposition them, to create cross class combos. it is not just select the
whole party and nuke the same mob.
I was doing that the last two playthroghs and was getting owned.
Even the game is more actiony you still have to be tactical ( in hard or nightmare difficulty).
Some quests were very well done, i liked the qunari a lot and the Arishok is very intimidating.
I still have critisicm about the game but it's been said again and again.
If you get past the recycled enviroments and get used to the combat and know what to expect DA2 is very good game.
Bioware has done a very good job given the timeframe. I will actually buy Legacy and MOTA DLC as ienjoy the game wand want to experience more story.
As for DA3 i would say what many have said: Keep the good stuff from DA2 and good from DA3 and improve them.
small price for a Dlc that actually has as much length as most games out there. it really adds to the main game.
that statement is basically all you need to know deus ex HR lovers. thisdlc does not feel disjointed and it adds up to the main game. the sad part is that it does not automatically load while you paly the main game. you ll get the part where it says , several days later where you must quit to the main screen and load it manually, after you finish it you must continue your main game.
Now about the gameplay,
it is GREAT, lots of tension, upgraded visuals i think, GREAT EFFING OST again like the main game, lots of action, lots of mystery and if you are carefull enough about some things you ll see why this ited to main game. no boss this time (i would like one to be honest).
this dlc is actually very thoughtfully crafted. Every aug will get you somewhere else, every aug will give you another solution to advance.
Every augmantation comes in handy. i invested in hacking.
Had i invested in other seamingly less usefull augs the result would be the same but with different advancement.
this dlc seems to favor stealth , since well you want actually to escape the situation but if you favor combat you will also have a great time since it is harder than the main game (which sometimes felt too easy if you favored the combat approach). in this way the dlc is balanced. the combat approach is tensefull as it should be.
as far as story goes there is a lot of mystery and conspiracy. it FEELS GREAT. i do not want to spoil anything.
If you loved the main game more than the average crap out there that lasts 10 or less hours as i do PLAY this dlc. it last me about 10 hours, i do not rush in games as game revewers do.
buy and support Eidos montreal. what they have pulled with Deus ex HR and missing link Dlc only happens once in a couple of years in gaming.
