Fantastic. One of the best RPG's I've played in a long time. I'd rank it as one of the best I've ever played, and certainly the best I've played since Mass Effect at least (And t may even be better than Mass Effect! )
And yeah, it is pretty deeply engrossing. I just picked up Dragon Age for the 360, and it's an immersive experience. I'm playing as the Human Noble Warrior (the closest to a paladin in the game, it would seem), and I've only barely had time to explore some of the first castle so far. There's just so much worldbuilding and history behind it, and so many areas to explore. And the kicker is... this is only one of many possible starting story tracks.
I'm not nearly far enough in Dragon Age to sing its praises quite yet, but so far I'm liking it quite a lot.
If you read the Penny Arcade - or many other gamers that are complaining - there is a quest-giver in the game that basically acts like a sales-pitchman and tries to SELL you Warden's Keep DLC in-game and there's a "Purchase DLC" button - and many people don't like that it's breaking Immersion factor of the game.
