    70 hours? Please say that on the corse of many play throughs. Cause if it take you 70 hours for your first play through. Then you just suck at gaming. The main story plot can be done in 8 easy. Yes if you know what quest to do and decided to skip all the useless quest and want your campions to not really care for you. It a short game.

    Second good voice action and dialog? Really adam? You can not tell me that Hawke's mother holding her dead childs and not cring and talking as if her gold fish just died is good? Hawke at his/her angerest sounds like they just had a good night sleep. There no shouting. There is no angry, No sadness, No Fear, and No life. The acting was done was if the actors just read the script in 10 mins. Story was poorly writen. The dialog seems to be writen by a 12 year old. The only thing the game was missing where fart joke. Combat was poorly made. Let not forget the mobs would come falling from the sky. On top of that they easily got stuck on spawning of just refused to actully fight you. Mobs often time would not move if they could not see hawke or compation on spawning. Even if they did there still a high chance they would not activat. Shade demons broke very much where they just sit there. Flashing combat moves like charge or backstab easily bugged if mob was next to a ledge or a wall. Can not tell you how many times my warrior/rogues would get stuck in walls or fall off ledges forcing me to ether reload or run around alot of walls to get back to the combat. Hawke was also very moody. Refusing to move, attack or interact with something. Making you have to switch to a compation and let hawke run on auto pilot. With the improved skilles and tatics the game would often times just play it self. It like I could go afk on the final boss fight in hard mod and the AI would kill the final boss battle. Have not tried it on Nightmare as nightmare is retardly extremely hard. So I sure my allies would kill me like they do in normal fight. Why is everything including auto attack friendly fire this time around. Stupid. Worse game in the history of bioware gaming. Here I thought Mass Effect 2 was bad this really makes me say. Biowares just makes garbage. Time to label everything they make as trashed. From ME3 all the way to Star Wars the old republic. They killed their reputation of being a good game company. At less me and Adam can agrea this game is bad.

    Now I do not blame Bioware. This failure is all EA fault. EA and Microsoft is the Grim Reapers of Gaming. Everything they touch dies slowly and painfully. Which is why the xbox has slowly made gaming lame. 10 - 15 years ago gaming was good. No adays almost all games are as bad as this failure.

    Rushed game was rushed. Shame I'd buy a box of rocks if it had Biowares name on it. =(

    right but call of duty only lasted a 6-8 hour story this is a single player narrative and bioware didn't treat it as such

    as i recall the single player for black ops wasn't great as modern warfare and yet that got a perfect score
