Is Dragon Age 2 Worthy Of Calling Itself, The Next Generation Rpg?
Welcome everyone to the Dragon Age 2 Review. Dragon Age II is a role playing video game developed by BioWare, and published by Electronic Arts. The story takes us back to the same mythical world introduced in Dragon Age: Origins, the continent of Theadas. The player plays as Hawke a blight refugee heading to Kirkwall. The story of a refugee becoming the champion and savior of the city at first might trouble and discourage some of the rpg veterans, but I shit you not, this is not a boring game. It has its ups and downs but calling it boring would be an injustice. First things first…
Our story takes place in Theadas world. It is the same world where our previous stories took place but this time we will meet a new part of this world, The Free Marshes. In those marshes the main city we will visit is Kirkwall and its surroundings.
Kirkwall is guarded by mountains to its north, the tallest of which is Sundermount. This mountain has an infamous reputation. An unholy and ruthless battle took place there, where from both sides horrific and unholy creatures were released. Those creatures still exist on the peaks of this mountain not knowing that the war is over.
Kirkwall got its name due to the sea cliffs which is built on, forming an enormous and massive wall protecting the city from natural disasters, and attacks from other races. This wall can be seen from miles and miles away from the approaching ships. Huge statues carved on the rock represent the ancient gods. A channel has been carved into this cliff, allowing ships to sail into the city’s interior. On both sides of this corridor there are two colossal bronze statues , and a massive chain net can be erected blocking the navigable lane. Apart from that the rulers of the city jealously guard the wealth gathered from the tolls and trade. A slave trade that is, because Kirkwall was the capital of buying and selling all kinds of slaves.
