Holds up hand sheepishly. It is classic Bioware, probably their best since BG2.

Story is pretty good, if your standard fantasy fare. The combat however is rock solid; the Broodmother fight was an absolute beast on normal difficulty.

After the Witcher being rubbish and Mass Effect being crammed with cut n paste worlds its good to have a decent offline RPG.

Good timing too for those of us needing a brief respite pre SOM. :)

Yeah the mousewheel is rubbish, just use PgUp/Dn though I never bother with it.

OMG I'm totally hooked - the magic system is... OMg...! :) This is like proper AD&D, far better skill and magic system than anything I've seen - paths are just amazing! Why can't we have this in a MMO?

Well I am now at the bit after the King is dead and you get to that town and pick up the fourth member of the party. There is a guy in a cage though and not sure if I should take him, but like the rogue since she can open chests of loot for me!

The game is simply fantastic and totally absorbing - I can't stop playing it!

OMG.... you can have SEX in this game? From Videogamer.com:
Why should I care? Sex. Yes, Dragon Age has sex. Lots of it, in fact. You can go to a brothel in Ferelden's capital and pay 50 silver to shag a human, an elf, or a dwarf, of any gender. Prostitution, however, is all too easy. There is no challenge. Bonking your party members is the true test of your sexual prowess. Strangely, this overshadows most other desires, including saving the world. This is your true motivation throughout your quest. Every action and decision boils down to this most basic and feral of desires: to shag. Dragon Age does not have a karma system; it has a sex system.
