For Controls in other games, see Controls (disambiguation).

Controls are the human interface (keyboard and mouse for PC, controller for console) methods by which players interact with the game and direct the party members.

Note: Keybindings and mouse behavior can be changed in the options menu. This page describes the default behavior.
Note: "Console" (uppercase) refers to the PlayStation/XBox versions of the game, whereas "console" (lowercase) refers to the developer tool. See Console (Dragon Age II) for more details on the latter.
