Bioware's spiritual successor to the 'Baldur's Gate' series, 'Dragon Age' is low-fantasy for a new age. Create your character, customize your party, direct the battle, and wipe out the Blight that threatens to destroy the world in this Tolkienesque fantasy.
Bioware, creators of Mass Effect, listened to their fans and have answered their pleas for a new 'Baldur's Gate'. Rather than trying to update a fun but dated system, Bioware made a new combat system, added morality to dialogue, and blood, lots and lots of blood.
Though these are great parts of the game, the story and your decisions are the lynch pins that hold it all together and make you come back for more. Play the story of a dwarf commoner or dwarf noble, human noble or mage, city elf or dalish elf, then choose whether male or female. How you play and talk to people will dictate whether you are loved as a hero or feared as a slayer.
