With Inquisition, BioWare have handled the narrative and consequence of conversation and action with more assurance and depth than Telltale, while also constructing one of the finest and most forward-looking CRPGs ever made. And I'm as delighted and surprised as anyone.

In sum, "Dragon Age: Inquisition" feels like a game in which the writers were set free to craft a story for contemporary adults. As I listened to the poetic diction of Cole, a character prone to alliteration and utterances such as, "The air smells like rocks," I wondered if the gaming industry might swell to provide a berth for poets as academia has.

BioWare achieved everything that it needed to with Dragon Age: Inquisition. It revitalised a series that had suffered real brand damage in Dragon Age II, and the third game in its fantasy trilogy easily stands as the best RPG we've seen in years. There is absolutely no reason to miss out on this one.

Dragon Age: Inquisition definitely surpasses its predecessors in terms of its gaming mechanics that can be played by a variety of gamers of all levels. The third game in the series is easily one of the most polished RPG's on any system that boasts an engaging story, wonderful characters and flawless combat with your different classes. However where this game does shine is with its beautifully created open-world universe that although has some limitations, still gives the player an unparalleled amount of freedom as they attempt to stop this ancient evil from destroying the societal structures of Thedas!

There's so much to go into in terms of Dragon Age: Inquisition's world, characters and content that ultimately boggles the mind. It's a wonderful experience that deserves to be experienced as freshly as possible, so we won't spoil too much of what it entails. It's a grand adventure in the truest sense, and a great comeback for the blockbuster RPG, delivering upwards of 50 hours of content for the main campaign alone, and it feels like we've barely managed to scratch the surface of everything there is to offer in this world. Fans of BioWare and RPGs in general can do no wrong with this, one of the most outstanding games this year.

It's still Dragon Age at heart, retaining some of the series' defining features, but it's hard to overlook some of the new, brilliant design choices that BioWare have made.

The first act is a little slow to get going, but once the story has its hooks in you and the true scale of the world opens up before your eyes, it's easy to forgive early problems with pacing and a slightly lacklustre combat system. It says something that after around forty-five hours of gameplay I was disappointed that the main plot was showing signs of coming to an end, and that as soon as I finished I wanted to start the whole thing over again.

Ultimately, what will carry Dragon Age Inquisition is its characters and story. Without spoiling anything, this truly is one of gaming's landmark titles that will raise expectations for videogame writing. Like many good stories, it bides its time before unfurling its greatest moments, and while it takes a solid ten to fifteen hours before Inquisition really gets going, it is all in service to a greater long term reward. Inquisition also has competent gameplay, but it is truly one of the greatest mysteries why Bioware chose to "fix" something that was never broken and screwing with the combat system that worked perfectly fine in Dragon Age Origins, which still in my opinion remains the best game in the series. This is not a game for fans of hack n' slash RPGs or the easily distracted; this is a game for those who are willing to give it the same amount of attention they would give their favorite novel or three hour movie. In conclusion, Dragon Age Inquisition is a fine game that is easily recommendable to both fans of the series and newcomers because its story and characters are so rich that they make its shortcomings just barely tolerable.

It might be conventional as far as visuals and monsters go, but its overall appeal rests in its provision of a living world that can be sculpted and altered in ways both subtle and explicit. So long as you're prepared to put the required time in, Dragon Age: Inquisition has plenty to give.

The true power of the Inquisition may be illusory, but that doesn't stop it being satisfying to wield while it lasts.

So, after all is said and done, Dragon Age: Inquisition will most likely suffer the same fate as its predecessors. It's a fun game that will probably never achieve a broad fan base, but there will be those that love the game and will go to great lengths to defend it with rabid aggression. All told, I was expecting more but I'm not really that surprised. I had fun and that's what counts.

I'm still captivated by the structure the game is built on, the way it will give character priority over spectacle. Much of the choice and consequence talk is a bluff, but it can still surprise you.

Ultimately, Dragon Age: Inquisition suffers from a very simple problem. It has enough things like graphical prowess and decent combat and the like to be passable. If the Dragon Age name hadn't been attached to this project it seems doubtful it would have been green-lit. Those looking for a better resolution to the story won't find it in here, and, ultimately, it feels like little more than a polished cash-in than an attempt to build or expand.

Rubbish controls, dull combat, and a general sense that it's not quite sure what it wants to be, let down an otherwise entertaining and regularly amusing world-saving romp.
