Fans of role playing games will become engrossed in "Dragon Age Origins" (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC), a sword-and-sorcery epic that's rich with great storytelling and hours of game play. The player takes on the role of a heroic member of the Grey Wardens, a group assigned to protect the land from the evil darkspawn (ugly, evil minions). The game's world (in the PC version reviewed here) is incredibly detailed and full of interesting characters, subplots and side quests. But it's a game that requires a huge time commitment to fully appreciate the density of its story.
