A fantastic campaign and massive open environments, soured only slightly by minor, persistent flaws.

An excellent return to form for the Dragon Age series, and the biggest and most ambitious Western role-player since the new generation began.
Dragon Age: Inquisition creates a massive, vibrant world on a scale far greater than its predecessors, and does an excellent job of making you feel in command. The heart of this game rests with its characters, who keep you invested in the action.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is a graphical showcase for the next-generation consoles—a sprawling, beautiful open-world RPG with a deeply satisfying exploration loop and just enough in the way of mechanical depth to keep hardcore adventurers happy. At more than 50 hours for a single run through the story, it packs in a tremendous amount of content across a wide number of locations. After stumbling a bit of their past few releases, BioWare has recovered to deliver a truly excellent piece of epic fantasy.
Dragon Age: Inquisition not only feels like a fully fledged role-playing adventure, but it's also packed with fun things to do that will keep you busy for weeks. Having played well over 100 hours, I'm still finding things to do, working on my multiplayer characters, and plotting another playthrough to handle things a bit differently. Inquisition is a triumph and proves that despite some missteps along the way, BioWare hasn't lost its touch.
For a fantasy game presenting dozens of hours of gameplay, Dragon Age: Inquisition largely delivers on its promises, both mechanically and in gameplay that fans will want from the third title in the series.
Yet Dragon Age: Inquisition is one of those rare games where its flaws sound severe on paper, but often melt away when you're actually playing. We can't remember the last time we've been so thoroughly absorbed by a virtual place or so attached to a cast of characters. In that sense, Dragon Age: Inquisition is a flawed journey, but it's one that we eagerly want to return to.
With a huge, breathtaking world, an epic story, and choices that leaves a significant mark on the world around you, Dragon Age: Inquisition embodies everything that makes the series so popular.
BioWare has created a whole new beast this time around. Dragon Age: Inquisition is not only a notable improvement over its predecessors, it achieves a new standard for the genre. You'd be hard-pressed to find an aspect of this game that doesn't completely shine and draw you in.
A solid, old-school RPG that loses its way occasionally, but still delivers a vast, engaging adventure - and a compelling reason to return to Thedas.
A worthy addition to the Dragon Age series, but it takes some time to prove it.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is a Schrodinger's Goldilocks kind of a game: too big and just right at the same time.
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.
