Dragon Age 2 score was 'kind of a rush job'

Video game composer fears musical bugs in BioWare's latest

Dragon Age II is released today, just 18 months after Dragon Age Origins, which put industry renowned composer Inon Zur under a bit of pressure.

The composer, who's work you'll no doubt have heard in the likes of Fallout 3, Prince of Persia, EverQuest and the original Dragon Age, has said that Dragon Age II was pushed hard by EA in order to capitalise on the original's success.


He said, therefore, that there are probably some bugs when it comes to the music:

"I'm actually really anxious for the game right now, so I can pop it in and start playing," he told IGN.

"I'm really looking forward to see it. I know there are a few bugs that still need to be fixed. Unlike other titles from BioWare, this [score] was kind of a rush job."

"EA really wanted to capitalize on the success of Origins, so the game was really being pushed hard to be released now. So I'd like to know if there are bugs, or if there's anything we could patch or fix."

We should emphasise that Zur is referring to the game's musical score only - he didn't have any involvement in other development.

Despite Zur's concerns, Dragon Age II has been running away with it as far as review scores are concerned.
