Dragon Age: Inquisition Impresses Early Reviewers As A Beautiful, Massive Netherworld Of Fun

The holiday season for video games has had a rough time. With games such as Assassin’s Creed: Unity getting poor reviews and Halo: The Master Chief Collection suffering from matchmaking issues, it’s not shaping up very well. However, Dragon Age: Inquisition, which hasn’t been released yet, is turning that around with its positive scores from critics and their early reviews.

The Guardian gave BioWare’s latest entry into the Dragon Age franchise 4 out of 5 stars with Ian Ford calling it a “truly monumental game” though the overall threat and villain “never truly cohere into something memorable.” Meanwhile, Polygon’s Philip Kollar gave it a 9.5, praising the game for its “astounding scope” and the game's large group of followers with nine playable party members, each having “reams of dialogue conveying a fully developed personality.”

Overall, the western RPG is being praised as an RPG with depth that features a large, beautiful world with plenty of content and great combat. Alexander Sliwinski from Joystiq scored it 5 out of 5 saying that it “is an immense fantasy epic, a sprawling adventure across the many landscapes of Thedas, unapologetically matures in its exploration of politics, and brazen in its combat.”

On Metacritic the PlayStation 4 version has an aggregate score of 89, 85 for the Xbox One, and 88 for the PC.

Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch on November 18 in North America for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC platforms.
