A lot of people, and game critics as well, think that Dragon Age 2 is a much worse of a game than Dragon Age Origins. However, I think that DA2 is good, but in its own way, and I'll do my best to explain why I think so.

BioWare made the game much better, yet it brought such a massive number of changes that people didn't accept it. In other words, gamers disliked the game not because it's worse but because it's so different compared to the first one.

Even though any story/plot is a subjective matter, I think that DA2 story is indeed objectively better. First of all, the writers have done a terrific job on making the player an important part of the story, but it does not feel like the world of DA2 revolves around the player. This is contrary to DAO where if the player doesn't exist - nothing else exists, so the second game has more mature and somewhat more realistic way of storytelling. Additionally, almost every character and every dialog have much more detail to them compare to the first game.

It is true that the combat became less tactical, yet playing mages became so damn satisfying; the skills are so fast and flashy. In my humble opinion, the portion system (having health and mana potions that level up with the player) is much more convenient than having 500 different potions in the inventory in the first game. One huge downside of the game is that many levels have been reused over and over... over and over. Visiting the dungeons, again and again, was the main source of my disappointment. Of course, the game, like any, is far from ideal, yet it did not deserve all the hate it received from the players and critics.

I think of DA2 as a BioWare's experiment; the developers probably decided to focus on different parts of an RPG: story vs. mechanics, convenience vs. variety. At least for me, it was quite a memorable and predominantly enjoyable experience, and I just appreciate the fact that the devs decided to try out something new.
