Described as the spiritual successor to the Baldur’s Gate franchise without featuring anything related to Dungeons & Dragons, Dragon Age: Origins is an entirely single player experience including a lot of races all linked to unique stories. For example, a common dwarf begins the game in the streets of a city while a noble one will do so from a royal house. As in most games by BioWare, the decisions taken by the player influence its environment. They affect who is crowned king, if a character becomes your enemy, if another one leaves your group of adventurers, etc..
In Dragon Age: Origins, the fighting is done in real time with the possibility of pausing the game to build a list of commands to be carried out by partners. Spells offer interactivity with some elements of the scenery ; ice can extinguish a fire, fire spells can ignite grease, and so on. [April 3, 2009]
