Simultaneous release a first for Bioware

Electronic Arts and BioWare have released Dragon Age II, the sequel to the popular 2009 fantasy role-playing game. The new version has been released simultaneously for PC, XBox, PlayStation 3 and Mac OS X, marking the first time a Bioware game has had simultaneous release on the Mac. The game is now available both on DVD through conventional resellers and for download through Transgaming's GameTree Mac service.

In the game, players start as a refugee of a destroyed village, and over the course of a decade rise to become a warrior who will take on the Darkspawn demons to exact revenge. Players can opt for a male or female character, and determine what other attributes they will need in order to emerge victorious. The sequel offers a new visual style and combat mechanics, including much improved graphics, over the original Dragon's Age, but takes place in the same realm as the previous game.

Dragon Age II requirements are high: it needs at least a Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86Ghz or faster chip, Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later, 2GB of RAM or more and a minimum ATI HD2600 or NVidia 9400 or better video card (at least 256MB VRAM). NVidia 7000 series, AMD 1000 series and AMD 2400 cards are not supported. The game retails for $60.

    I stopped at the dumb *** changing into animal...

    I stopped playing a little into the part where you had to change into a dumb *** mouse then human then mouse then human then mouse then human **. I also think fighting monsters from h*** is really stupid too. If I had known about that part before I bought the game I never would have bought it.
