I’m aware that Dragon Age: Inquisition was released over a hundred days ago, but a “Write review of DA:I has been in my “to-do app” ever since, so I figured I’d write a super short review. So, if you’re reading this… Yup. Late.
The Dragon Age Inquisition story
After a “terrorist attack” on a peace conclave between Mages and Templars, the Dragon Age universe groans under a civil war. As if that wasn’t enough, mysterious rifts have appeared in the sky, through which demons enter the realm. It’s not a great time to be alive, especially if you’re DA:I’s main character whom is arrested on suspicion of being the one behind the attack on the conclave which costed the live of many people.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is a top class RPG which checks all the boxes: a great story, interesting quests and side-quests and a rich lore. Couple that with good gameplay mechanics and a return to a more strategic combat system – a mix between the brainless button bashing of DA:2 and DA:O where you can freeze time to move around your characters and give them orders – and you’ve got yourself another Bioware classic, which you can enjoy for hundreds of hours.
At least, on the single player side of things. The multiplayer, which puts four players in a “dungeon” shows promise, but suffers from lag (and lots of it) which made enjoying, or even playing, the multiplayer part, near impossible. But if we look past the lag, the MP has / had a lot of potential to be a lot of fun.
Conclusion: Of course I’m ridiculously late with my review. But if you’re wondering whether to buy Dragon Age: Inquisition or not, take my word for it: Dragon Age Inquisition is a fantastic game, well worth your money and time.
