I recently had time to play Pandemic Studio’s final game (they were shut down) on the Xbox 360. I will admit that I knew very little going into this game and did not have high expectations. I never was one for Thief or other games that encouraged you to not be seen – I have this nasty habit of sticking out like a sore thumb when I should remain unseen. The name ‘Saboteur’ implied that this was a game that might not be for me. I am pleased to report that I was very mistaken.
I’ve decided to wait until I’m deeper into Mass Effect 2 to comment on it – but my early impressions are very good, I’m enjoying my playthrough. Today I am going to talk instead about another recent Bioware game – Dragon Age: Origins. This came came out near the end of 2009 as a multiplatform title. My opinions on it are based on the 360 version. I’ve heard that graphically the PS3 version looks sharper, but the 360 is less prone to glitches and runs at a faster framerate.
Dragon Age: Origins is a fantasy RPG, in which players are tasked with destroying a horde of Darkspawn and defeat the Archdemon about to overwhelm the Kingdom of Ferelden.
