Macworld (Feb 06, 2010)
Easily the most compelling RPG I’ve ever played, Bioware once again proves that they can weave together great writing, beautiful graphics, a compelling story, and a versatile battle system to make a game more than the sum of its parts. Even though Bioware already has the critically praised Mass Effect and Knights of the Old Republic series to their credit, Dragon Age represents a major step forward for the genre and a gem of a game. I never thought I’d use the words “innovative” and “fantasy RPG” in the same sentence, but Dragon Age: Origins also earns the words “fun” and “addictive.”

If you like good quality RPGs, definitely consider Dragon Age. It is graphically pleasing, and a lot of fun to play. The story is rich in detail and gripping enough to keep up one’s interest throughout the game. This is an excellent game and well worth the cost. Very well done Bioware and thank you very much to TransGaming for doing the work necessary to bring it to the Mac platform! This is an incredible game that will provide hours of fun even without additional downloadable content.
MacLife (Mar 05, 2010)
Even with its slight wrinkles and frustrations, Dragon Age remains one of the finest role-playing games available today. Packed with an interesting story, an astounding level of character customization, workable party-management tools, good downloadable content, and beautiful graphics, it's just about everything a role-playing fan could want on their Mac.

Dragon Age - Origins ist wieder einmal ein willkommener Zeitdieb, der dank einer ungeheuer stimmigen und düsteren Fantasy-Welt und der extrem detaillierten Charaktere wie ein Magnet auf Abenteurer wirkt. Auch wenn die Geschichte alles andere als neu ist und die technische Umsetzung der großartigen Erzählkunst der Entwickler hinterher rennt, so gehört das Spiel in jede gute Sammlung eines Rollenspiel-Fans. Zumindest sofern er der englischen Sprache mächtig ist.
