So returned to Dragon Age: Inquisition to finish it… Cue the Wicked Hearts quest.
It is near enough a given on any epic, big story mission Bioware will probably screw it up but this one far surpasses all their previous achievements:
- Bad sign-posting? Check.
- Unclear ‘rules’ arbitrarily applied? Check.
- Having to make nice with a bunch of bastards you’d happily feed to Madame Guillotine? Check.
It then adds in an unforgiveable court approval bullshit mechanic that renders the combat sections timed! Oh and the Lv 15 enemies were far too resilient against my Lv 21 gang o’ thugs.
The entire thing, from start to finish, was at best tedium, at worst absolute crap - overall? No fun whatsoever, even the fights were rubbish, with a Fade fight that was far harder than it should be and killing Florianne took forever.
Any redeeming factors? Well, Morrigan joins the Inquisition and I judged a corpse. But these developments don’t really make up for the monumental pile of arse that that mission was.
On the plus side, it’s done and I can go and kill that asshole Corypheus and all his friends.
