No offense taken mickey. Anyway I edited the post or else someone would get the wrong impression of the game

I was trying to show my actual playtime but I guess DA 2 doesn't show those stats like DA:O did.

At any rate the game is alot better than the demo let on, especailly graphics. Though really, how much can you get from a demo other than a snippet of game play?

Good luck in getting you issues sorted.

Peace

The tactical side of the battles were totally neglected in DA2. Now, it's a pure action RPG.
Tons of sidequests, the Deep Roads Expedition act, even though it seemed like it will be an epic chapter, was quite short.
Inventory fills up pretty fast, and you pretty much get ridiculously wealthy around the half of the game.
Played 10-15 hours of the game and the combat seems repetitive from a point.

The game is very nice, but it seems that it lost a little from the "epicness" of the first DA series.

Yeah I'll give you some points on those but as I said before - DA:O's combat system was awkward and had lots of complaints so they changed it up in DA2. Is it better or worse..... depends

As for getting wealthy, yeah it is pretty easy to get rich. LOL I haven't even spent much yet. In the first game I was scrapped for money.

I haven't even did the Deep Roads Experdition yet as I'm doing all sorts of side quests first. That's me

As for filling your inventory up.... been home lately?

Anyway despite all the "faults" I'm still enjoying the game. Very entertaining. Oh check this armor.....

I have sound issues as well...I play using headphones...and it worked well at the start...as soon as I hit Kirkwall it went west...sounds like it's coming thru an echo chamber and so shite I have not the slightest idea what is being said.

party combat is somewhat BS too imo...a tank that only tanks one target and a healer (mage) with a 20 sec CD on her heals..wtf is that? Would'nt get in any instance in WoW lol...

Yeah I posted about my sound issues at Bioware's forums here - Audio issues, echo

It is annoying as it takes away from the game atmosphere. I hope they can patch it.

I'm enjoying the game so far, not as good as the first though. I'm a little "disconnected" from the game, while in the first I was completely immersed in the story.

Like others have said, it does somewhat feel like a "hack and slash".

LOL - Did we miss the quest in the Main Plot - A New Home?


That was one of the first quests you did when you went to Kirkwall - after you did your yearlong servitude

As a huge fan of Dragon Age I can't want to get Inquisition when it launches Nov. 18th of this year. Anyway the system requirements look interesting. Check out the "recommended" specs. And as I like to say, "minimum" just means the game will start :) Source: Dragon Age: Inquisition

So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
