Mac|Life has posted a new review of Dragon Age 2. Brought to Macs by TransGaming using the company's Cider Portability Engine, the game puts players in the role of Hawke and allows them to craft the story of the legend's rise to power. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4.5 out of 5.

From the review:

Like its predecessor, Dragon Age II swings for the fences to be the king of the role-playing genre. And once again, it succeeds. Amazing graphics and sound meet top-notch voice acting while presenting a world that's completely immersive and makes you an active part of the storyline with every choice you make. Looking to help a given side in a dispute? Prepare to reap the consequences and alliances are made, broken, mended and tested with every dialogue choice you make. Like any good role-playing game, Dragon Age II allows you to build the character of Hawke from the ground up, your first choices being Hawke's gender as well as character type (warrior, rogue or mage).

Where a fair number of role-playing titles put a huge amount of focus on specifying your party's upgrades after a new level has been gained, Dragon Age II finds an easier way to do this. You're tasked with choosing Hawke's next upgrades, and can also choose whether to upgrade everyone else in the party individually or use an Auto Level-Up option to make the best choices for upgrades.
