I guess that's where I'm stumbling... It isn't just the models, which by themselves would be a such a minor gripe that it could be best described as nitpicking, it's the whole. On the whole the game felt completely different from the original on a conceptual, mechanical and spiritual succession basis.

I don't think people would mind one or two core changes, but overall the differences - dialogue wheel, art direction, framed narrative, core mechanics, attack animations are so acute(at least as I perceive them) that the game almost loses any sense of continuity...

For example, I could guarantee you people would be upset if, originally, ME gave you the option to play out the hero of the universe as any of the various species... Especially if you could play as an elcor or volus, that would have actually made ME2 entertaining for me.

That's the thing, DA2 was clearly made with consoles/console gamers in mind. I'd say that was the catalyst behind 90% of their game changes. frown.gif

Of course. But I'm confident this demo is not completely representative of the whole. And besides, if nothing else, Bioware is killer at telling stories.

What a bad port. Do they think i care game uses DX11 when textures are ridiculously low resolution? Make it DX15 i don't care. Check how some objects are textured...

Maxed out with 16x af,8x aa

The demo was not able to run at full graphics and was obviously not optimized. I would wait and make your judgements when the full game comes out. Demos are never a true representation of a games graphic quality

the demo actually made me less likely to get the game... I only played for a few minutes, though.

Guys anybody with a brain can tells its a completely different game. Its not a Tactical top down RPG like the rest of its Genre and its prequel. Its a Combat RPG like Elder Scrolls 3-4 or Fallout 3.

Simply put its far more appealing to the masses than the 1st one.

Demo was really great on the PS3. Looking forward to giving it a go on my PC once I can get my heatsink sorted.

Seems pretty good to me. The graphics are no better or worse than the first one.

The skill tree or lack there of worries me some but what bothers me most is the view. I find it frustrating that Im locked onto a character and cannot move the camera where ever I want during combat or while paused. Makes it hard to execute ranged attacks.

I only paid $40 for it so for that its still going to be worth it.
