Takes place after the original but with difference characters. You guys do know that's its more Action RPG now right? I do like the narrative that they are going with this time though. Someone is telling a story and the decisions they make while telling it affect the gameplay and outcomes, not the player characters choices.

if gameplay is like mass effect, i will not buy it.

Seems the combat is similar to Mass Effect but with swords and a combo system rather then a single attack button. But this might change for PC users since only the console version is talked about.

I wish it was true Magus, but I don't believe that for a second.

Why not? The battle systems and UI for the original were different from the original on the different platforms.

That, or the designers don't want it to play like a "proper classic RPG".

and the reason behind that is that idiots on consoles had trouble playing first game and started complaining.

The first game did play like crap on the consoles. I fail to see the problem as long as the gameplay is enjoyable and the story is good. Why does it have to be a "classic RPG" to be good?

Because it's a sequel and people that played the first are kinda expecting that?

They can't change it this time, because the game is all about mixing action parts and the classic parts. That's what I've read in the latest interview and didn't like it one bit. They're already making it more like Mass Effect. I won't be surprised, if the third part was complete action "RPG".
