DA2 focuses around the hero known as Hawke, whose dark and gritty story compliments the bloody and visceral combat riddled throughout the game. Along the epic quest you meet several interesting characters, complete several insane challenges, and kill lots and lots of dark spawn. Sounds great right? Unfortunately, Dragon Age 2 also has its fair share of problems. Some of these issues include horribly annoying design and HUD decisions, an almost unholy amount of gore, and poor loot itemization.
