Heroes of Dragon Age is a strategic battling and role-playing game set in the Dragon Age universe. You can create your own group of adventurers, choosing between more than a hundred different mythical characters from the franchise.
K, let’s talk about Dragon Age. Dragon Age III was announced and previewed some weeks ago by Bioware staff. Dragon Age II was, well, what it were, and Dragon Age Origins is one of the favorite games ever of this me your humble reviewer.
Furthermore, EA thought it was a good idea to disembark Dragon Age franchise onto mobile shores with a collectible card game. Oops. Yes, you’ve read it right: we are not talking about a gritty moonlit dungeon crawler, or an adventure game with witty dialogues and charismatic characters either. It’s a yet another card game. In fact, it’s a yet another high quality with brilliant graphics and animations and backed by a successful franchise, which is even sadder and proves our fear of an oncoming trend of making CCGs of everything. Should we thank EA it’s a CCG and not a “Dragon Age Run” or a “Dragon Crush Saga”?
The main part of the game is to challenge other players – your own friends or random players from around the world – with your group of adventurers. You’ll need to choose your heroes wisely and build the best team possible; that’s the only way you’ll win your battles.
To train, you can participate in campaign mode battles, where you’ll relive some of the franchise’s most famous moments. Keep in mind that you never directly control your troops, but rather watch to see how they perform, alone, in combat.
Visually, Heroes of Dragon Age may not be at the same level as its sister games for PC or regular gaming consoles, but it still has better graphics than the majority of Android games, and some of its models – especially the dragons – are really impressive.
Heroes of Dragon Age is a notable title, and although it's mainly geared toward fans of the original saga, it has plenty of content to attract new players. In all, this is a fun, accessible game with some good touches of complexity.
