Dragon Age: Inquisition was released this week so I took advantage of the fact that we had a few days off from work and gave this game as much time as I could.
After few hours into the game I was really afraid, the game didn’t start too well (not horrible either), but turned out the first areas were the problem (probably remnants of a different project…). As I progressed a little more into the story and unlocked more explorable areas everything changed. The game sucked me in with its atmosphere, world design, beautiful graphics, tones of lore, the choices (soo many!) and most importantly, interesting and hard to read characters!
I’ve spent over 70 hours playing this game since Tuesday and I still have a lot to do, I didn’t even touch two of the explorable areas and from what I can tell I barely completed half of the main story.
There is a lot of filler content in Inquisition and I was expecting this, the game tries to portray a bigger and more open world and this world has to be filled with something to do. It is impossible to make good quests everywhere, in fact even Origins had some filler content, it was easier to hide it by exposing it in a much more interesting way, but was still there.
Some things could be better in the game like the variety of filler missions or some of the side story and companion missions as well. But my biggest complaint with the game is related to PC controls, an issue that I hope will be patched soon. The camera is awkward and tiring to use and the tactical view fails badly in areas with very low ceilings. Other than that is pretty much an enjoyable and captivating experience, that I will probably replay after the game gets some fixes and maybe some DLCs (it will probably have lots of them…).

I had a review done for Dungeon of the Endless to post this week. I was waiting for feedback from my editor, but I was so focused with the game I didn’t check all my email accounts so I missed it and I decided to postpone it.
Dragon Age: Inquisition comes as a priority and if I can finish the game by the start of next week I will try to write a review and post it as soon as possible.
