Has anyone tried it? Does it live up to the hype? I'm curious, I don't really play those kind of games, nor does anyone I know, so I haven't really heard much about it although it seems to be very popular. It's something i'm thinking about trying.

Edit: nvm, I just realized my CPU is too old x_x lol.

Yes, and yes. It's an epic game with an amazing story, though it tends to annoy me a lot because the main character has no voice, everyone else is voiced...except you. I know it's a small thing, but yeah, bothers me:P

Great Story, Gamplay, Characters. You get three races to choose: Human, Elf, and Dwarf. Each has there own origin stories at the beginning(the Dwarf noble is my favorite origin story). After that is when the Adventure starts. If you play Kotor then the combat and gameplay is similar to that.

If you are a fan of good old fantasy rpgs then get it. If you do everything in the game you will spend no less then 30hrs playing the game.

This may be one I pick up when I (some day) upgrade my CPU. Sounds nice. I miss free roaming RPG's my favorite back in the day was Betrayal at Krondor.

It was a really good game, a good story with some good cinematics, amazing dialogues and so much replayability I average about 20 hours per character, and i have completed it at least 4 times...

I dont know how it is on pc, but it certainly was fun on the xbox

I'd compare it to fable personally, a good game but not one that lives up to the hype. It doesn't stand up to Baulder's Gate. It also was pretty easy, definitely don't use the DLC items if you want any semblance of a challenge.

While there were plenty of choices, each playthrough still felt the same. Because of this and the desire to try each class I ended up with three playthroughs and then stopped playing alltogether before I finally took the time to finish it just so I could do the expansion.

The control scheme for this sort of game is vastly superior on the PC, I've tried both.

definitely more then 30 hours, yeah. It took me an entire week playing nonstop, from 8:00 till 23:00, so yeah loads to do ingame.

Dunno if people here have the expansion aswell, but to be honest it was meh compared to the original. took me less then 2 days to complete.

I suspected as much about the game controls... For a change the games managed to pull off radial menus very well i quite liked the console layout

The game isnt very challenging at later stages admittedly, but early on it can be pretty tough on the hard difficulties...

I didnt even know about the game until it was released and a friend told me about it, thus no hype for me and no disappointment

I wouldnt compare it to baldurs gate, never, baldurs gate is classic and I CANT FIND IT!!!!

DA:O was one of the best 24hour games of my life! The choices, the combat system that was kind like GWs. Altho my romance big choices happened in my second achievement playthrough it was THE most awesome RPG I've ever played. Altho Mass Effect also is a great TPSRPG game, DA:O Takes the price for fantasy and RPG.
