Well I got thjs for my PS4 on my birthday before Christmas but honestly I barely touched it, I did the few opening things ujtil you get sent to the Hinterlands then just left it. Well last Saturday I decided to finally play it properly, deleted and started again.
Since mid afternoon last Saturday I've racked up 73 hours played. My god this game is long. I've barely touched the story because my nature is to complete zones as I'm in them. Spent what felt like an eternity in the Hinterlands. Did the story thing with the Templars, then did Josephines personal quest. Zipped over to the Western Approach and now I'm trudging through Emprice Du Lion, my Jimmy is the keep there painful. I've wiped 4 times trying to reach Amshael. Eventual I had to go back to Skyhold and put a rune in which made an easier time of things but damn.
A fee complaints though;
The silence. Oje thing I loved in Origins was the mottle conversations between your party as you traveled. And maybe it's just me but it feels like that's been scaled back. I'm forever walking in silence. Since they made the zones huge and beautiful I'm doing a lot of walking and aside from rarely getting a single line about a quest or maybe two lines of dialogue between two of them I'd never notice I had a party. They barely say a word to one another which can make trudging through some of the zones a chore.
No Alistair. I'm playing with the default, which means Alistair is king. And this whole thing is affecting more than just Fereldan, yet he doesn't seem to make an appearance beyond a War Table script.
The Old World just became a fart in the bath.....
