The demo was locked at "normal"... Mass Effect 2 was no cake walk at its higher difficultly levels...

Maybe I speak for my self here but I for one enjoy the game play of Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age 2. I don't get bored and it flows very well

*shrug* have I lost my roots?

you couldn't jump from an edge in the original nor does this game have auto aim. Heck after an enemy dies the character will just stand there waiting for a command.

Exactly. I never would have thought that Bioware would end up being just another developer trying to appease the masses with this watered down garbage.

DA 2 is just another giant step backwards for the PC rpg genre and a big "F you" to loyal Bioware fans.

It's her style. You just got a fade to black with her in Origins...

No it's not. It's not much different from the original Dragon Age. They sped up combat but works almost the same as the original. Heck I would compare this system to more like KOTOR.

My only complaint is the change in the upgrade system, seems a lot weaker.

Why not, they did it with Mass Effect?

The new system is to avoid taking unwanted skills to get to one you did want. It's a skill web.

I too would find this similar to KotOR, funny though it was a console port, delayed, simple combat, but everyone loves it. Everyone hates DA2. I still think there is truth to the statement, the biggest threat to PC gaming IS PC gamers.

The problem most people probably have is the shift from Origins to this. It was the same with Mass Effect 2. The game itself was fine, but it wasn't an RPG anymore.

That's why there was no problem accepting KotOR, it was introduced like that from the beginning. Same thing with The Witcher. The fights are more action oriented, but that's fine. It's the same in the book and there's more to it, than just mashing buttons. The fighting system just feels like it belongs to the universe, where it takes place.

But if you introduce Dragon Age like the Baldur's Gate successor and then in the sequel you have assassins jumping like ninjas and other stuff, it's stupid, it doesn't belong there and it breaks immersion for me.

If they wanted to make a game like that, fine, do it, but don't call it Dragon Age...
