Dragon Age: Origins Collectors Edition For Mac Reviewed

Mac|Life has posted a new review of the Mac version of Dragon Age: Origins Collector's Edition. Bioware's latest fantasy role playing epic challenges players to take on the role of a Grey Warden and defend the land of Fereldin from the monstrous Darkspawn. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4.5 out of 5.

From the review:

BioWare has never made a casual RPG, and the robust Dragon Age is no exception. Youíll customize your character and their specialization, leading to variations like a berserker fighting style for your warrior, shape-shifting or healing abilities for your mage, and improved lock picking for your rogue. Since you can add more characters for your party and switch between them as needed, you end up with broad yet specific control over every encounter.

Managing your party effectively requires you to directly control one character and assign behaviors to the other members of your party. For example, if you want your archer and mage to provide covering fire while the others attack with swords, just open the Tactics menu and assign a behavior, and the character will follow it as needed.

But when in doubt? Go bananas. Dragon Ageís graphics and sound are as good as anything else currently available, so even if you get trounced, youíll look good doing it. The lighting and models create a perfect fantasy/adventure feel, while the world itself is massive without being overwhelming. Top this off with easily 50-plus hours of gameplay, downloadable game expansions, and tons of weapons, items, and armor, and you wind up with a gaming experience thatís truly great.
