Game Informer has already gave a review and score of 9/10:

* Concept: A masterful return to the sub-genre that gave BioWare its beginning

* Graphics: The visuals are impressive, though not exactly top-of-the-line. The artistic design conveys the ancient fantasy setting well

* Sound: Lots of quality voice acting and an atmospheric soundtrack. Thankfully, none of the crappy metal from the trailers made the final cut

* Playability: Fussy camera angles can slow you down in battle, and inventory management is a minor pain. Otherwise, the interface works incredibly well

* Entertainment: I want to play this game again right now

* Replay: High:woop::woop::woop:

(Oblivion got 96%, HL2 96% as comparison scores)

Some quotes for you:

"delivers depth and detail on an unprecedented scale"

"one of the most enormous and astonishing of games"

"the world is so vast and detailed you could believe it was 100 years in the making"

"[the] cultures [are] vivid, beautiful and flawed, the battles enormous, the humour superb. RPG's now have a great deal to live up to"

"A truly astonishing game. Vast, vivid and microscopically detailed. Dragon Age is the RPG of the decade".

Of course, technically these reviews are for the PC version. Nevertheless, I think I'm more hyped for this game than any other, even Final Fantasy XIII. Anyone who knows how much I love FF knows that means something!

It ain't crappy, it was awesome. I'm sure Bioware made the right decision.

Don't get me wrong, I thought it was awesome as well. Sarcasm does not translate well in an online forum...

the metal worked for the trailers but unless they combine both the metal and the more bigger orchestrated stuff, it'll be way too disparate and weird to have lush beautiful music.....than heavy metal riffs bands already wrote years ago :P

I agree with the crappy metal.
It made all the trailers and previews look like they were trying too hard.
Plus I wouldn't call Marilyn Manson metal...

Me too. It suited the trailers though not the game itself ofcourse as it has that ancient setting.

Dangit. I should not have read this thread. I'm broke and there are too many games coming out that I wanna play. I think this one just moved its way up the list.

I'm want this game badly! I think the graphics look better in Mass Effect though which is strage considering that ME was made a year earlier. Either way I'm still getting it.

Personal opinion aside, more mainstream games will be winning that title such as Assassin's Creed 2 or MW2. Although, I Have no doubt it will be winning RPG of the year.

Yeah true. Almost forgot about the media and how only the most commercial products get the most attention.

I think i saw this too on gameinformer... was it the issue of epic mickey on the cover?
Well, if it was i think that was the PC review... but i think the 360 review will be in that general area as well for the magazine. I'd personally like to play it to kill a dragon and get back to the western RPG style for a while. Looks fun and a good way to enjoy my down time that i have so much of now.
