DA:O and Awakening are really great games. DA2 is a shithouse compared to them. It's basically on rails, it mostly takes place in the same town, so not a lot of exploring to do. Graphics are arguably better in 2. Though 2 isn't near as moddable, if at all, as the first and Awakening are, and the latter two have some awesome texture mods. If you're playing on the console, or aren't a modder, I guess that doesn't really matter though lol. Many, many people were not happy with DA2, the sheer amount of limitations and arbitrary loss of freedom in some aspects pissed a lot of people off. If DA2 is the ONLY game in the DA series you play, it actually isn't half bad. But going from the first one into the second one...it's painful.
