“Dragon Age: Origins” is a mesmerizing RPG from the master developers at BioWare.


For the most part, RPG fans are going to love what they find. While the story bears more than just a passing similarity to the “Lord of the Rings” saga, it’s not a bad thing, especially considering the replay value. The story changes whether you choose to play as a human, elf or dwarf, and the gameplay changes depending on whether you play as a solider, mage or rogue.

Expect to sink anywhere from 40 to 70 hours into the title based on how dedicated you are to completing every quest and finding every item available.
