I loved every minute of my time with Dragon Age, so when this expansion was released even though I was offended at the price I sucked it up and bought it. Right from the start I have to tell you I had problems. A lot of my items didn't work in Awakenings, so for example my warrior in the Blood Dragon Armour appeared as being naked. Then there are the crashes. In only 5 hours of play the game froze up on me 4 times, and the autosave wasn't on top of things so each time I lost a good chunk of progress. The crashes lessened as I played through Awakenings but didn't disappear completely. There were also numerous bugs and glitches, cutscenes wouldn't activate, ... Read the complete review

I have just compleed this expansion for the first time, and have rather mixed feelings about it. I absolutely loved the original Dragon Age game, in fact I would go so far as to say that it was one of my favourite games so far, but I feel that this expansion feels almost.. incomplete? Perhaps I was expecting more of a sequel rather than an expansion, which of course it isn't, but whilst the storyline feels very thrilling and exciting, it seems to end before it really began properly, almost as though it was rushed. There are new characters introduced in this new campaign, as well as a familliar face, however I didn't really feel like I had the time ... Read the complete review

Dragon Age Origins: Awakening is an add-on to the original Dragon Age Origins, so not really a full-blown sequel, but you're still looking at around 20 hours of new content, which is more than you get with some full games these days. There's not really too much I can say here that I didn't already say about Dragon Age without spoiling the plot, so this is going to be somewhat brief. To be truthful, the start of the game for me was very, very off-putting. I imported my hero from the original Dragon Age, who was clad in the unique DLC Blood Dragon armour. Unfortunately, what Bioware don't tell you is that some DLC items don't carry across into the add-on, so my ... Read the complete review

This is an expansion pack for Dragon Age Origins. Your Warden Player character - or an Orlesian outsider - has been assigned as Warden Commander, with his/ her own Arldom (kingdom). The game starts by the player beating back dark spawn from their new base of operations, vigil's Keep. You begin with a Grey Warden recruit who hasn't yet experienced the joining, and as you progress you meet up with a mage named Anders. He has some similarities to Alistair (from Dragon Age origins) but Anders is an apostate who has escaped from the Circle. When you meet him, he is attacking Dark spawn, which have killed his Templar guards (he is later blamed for this). The attack is ... Read the complete review

I adored Dragon Age: Origins and when Awakening was announced, I purchased it readily the day it was released, though I was gobsmacked at the price. Once again the writers at BioWare never cease to amaze. The lore of Origins returns in Awakening and the Warden can explore an entirely new arling--Amaranthine, the land that once belonged to the treacherous Arl Howe. Because I loved the companions in Origins so much it took a little while to get used to the five new ones in Awakening, but after a little while of playing, you get used to them enough to start getting attached to them in the same way as those from Origins. The one to watch out for is most ... Read the complete review
