Absolutely hate the cheap UI and to lesser extent HUD. Totally generic and plastic.

I actually don't mind the UI. It could be better, but it is an improvement over DA:O's. It doesn't eat as much of the screen, and doesn't have the gimmicky book feel.

Over all, it's about what I expected, gameplay-wise. The DX11 render didn't perform very well and it seemed to have thread timing issues when loading (nothing major, but distracting), but hopefully that's just a side affect of being a demo.

It should be a good game, but it looks like Bioware has their B-team doing all the work on it.

According to Bioware, DX11 is not supported in the demo, even though there's a choice for it. It may crash, produce missing textures or just run badly.

I finished the demo and liked it, but I am looking at it as a new game, not really Dragon Age. It's weird, it has the look of Dragon and it's in the same world but everything else feels different. I'm still getting it.

hmm, what have they done to Dragon Age

finished the demo, and I really don't like it, hard to explain it, but this entire game seems weird.

Am I the only one that loved it?? The which of the wild is awesome She was easily my fav character in the demo.

I'm rather disappointed they still have that "splattered in blood look" going on..There's got to be a way to turn that off?

It's closer to DA1 than I thought it would be, but as nekro says, it feels weird. I however love it. Can't wait to play. Sucks the DX11 option seems to be missing in the demo. DA2 while technically better, suffers in the art IMHO. DA1 looks better. Then again, it's hard to judge, so far all I've seen are blight fields and a tiny bit of a city. DX9 ran really well though. Even with my dying HDD (replacement coming tomorrow). Gonna be awesome to finish DA1, then straight onto this shortly.

Also best blood covered boobs ever!

@DansFace, in options there is a setting for persistent gore, this 'should' turn most of it off. If not, there might be mods, there is one for DA1. I myslelf like the blood, blood is the life blood of Dragon Age, that's why there is so much blood. Blood is in all of us, except Greedo. Blood, blood, blood. And bits of sick

ack....looks pretty **** tbh.

what does dx11 add to this?

ground textures are god awful!!!....(maybe cause its demo?)

the combat system is completely different to the original, it feels like i am playing single player wow.

I hope it's only demo, playing DA1 and it does look better to me, and it's textures weren't that good to begin with. DA2 does make you pause more, though I'm not sure that's a good thing. The combat is much faster, but more spammy, and where are the deathblows? ::

Still I like it, the story telling will rock, even if the story itself is a bit old.

the stupid Mass Effect conversation system.

they took a good game, and merged crap from other games

combat reminds me of this really bad Action D&D game that Atari released couple years ago.

What a crap demo. All you do is just fight an endless load of enemies in a boring setting. Too many games have stupidly long cut scenes which reminds me of Metal Gear Solid.
