Well, I guess you won't see this until tomorrow, but I do have to say that I actually enjoyed Baldur's Gate. I even read a good many of the books in the game.
The primary thing I didn't enjoy about the reading in NOLF2 was the fact that you had to do run around reading things to complete some inane quest. Besides that, I feel that such things have little place in a FPS, let alone for such a silly reason.
I guess I'm just the kind of person that feels everything has its place. Reading should be left to RPG's, while FPS games should focus on action and immersion. With the NOLF2 demo, I really felt like the little errands you have to run in the ninja level just made absolutely no sense. I suppose that's my biggest complaint. Not that I had to read, but that it was stupid that I had to read.
