Gornot, if you want this game to be hard, try beating it on Nightmare difficulty. Odds are, you won't. With you constantly talking about instant kills it sounds like you were playing on Casual or MAYBE Normal. Well guess what, if you set the game to easy of course it's going to be easy. Ancient Rock Wraith on Nightmare really is nearly impossible. Looking at his health bar is like being a diabetic staring at a 9 foot long Mars bar and being told you have to eat the entire thing.

First playthrough with the normal difficulty, of course, I don't dare touch the Casual difficulty, I'd probably kill myself. I regret I played on normal, too, lol, but since I'm returning the game to my friend tomorrow, I won't be able to get through the whole game again on higher difficulty... Not that I want to, anyway... Maybe in a few months when the amount of games that are actually good is usually lower.

The feel of DA2 as an individual RPG game is good, but it's not worthy to be the sequel to DA:O
Just my two cents.

No Spoiler material please!

As a reminder - do us the courtesy of not posting spoiler material - there are still some of us who are playing the game. Not everyone can run through a game in 6 hours.

Whether the game too easy for you or not is irrelevant.... being courteous is

This is just a general reminder - not pointing any fingers.

Thanks.

Though I haven't finished the game yet, I can respect that opinion. I've felt the same way about other sequels.

Thanks

Pro tip: Smartalec Hawke (purple icon) = hilarious dialog. "must be near massive head trauma bay. Nobody? Must just be me." Not flipflopping on dialog makes the stuff (s)he says even funnier. Decide what type of personality you're gonna be beforehand, and stick with it the entire game. Makes the dialog hilarious.
To sum up:
Diplomatic/Helpful Hawke = Green and Blue, will still insult people, but with a smile
Sarcastic/Charming Hawke = Purple. Varric in particular responds well to these options, as does Isabela. Source of some of the funniest lines in the game
Aggressive/Direct Hawke = Red. Very disagreeable person, shouts a lot. Generally a bit of an unpleasent person to even play.

Alright, I got pretty far into the game, I have to say I'm impressed. So what if this doesn't live up to Origins, at least you've got a game.

Sure the game isn't perfect, but I'm actually enjoying this, particularly the story. I really love how deep it gets into your companions. Also, the choices you've faced with are difficult. I'm a mage, so yeah... not the most popular group.

Fenris is unbelievably stubborn...

I have to admit I'm hooked. I've been playing for about 3 hours a setting - usually play 2 a day.

BTW I STILL haven't started the Deep Roads Experdidtion yet.... just love those side quests

The only thing that's annoying the heck out of me is the sound. Ugh.... they need to hurry up and get that patched. It really does kill the immersion

Outside of that, fun game

And yeah, Fenris is a trip.... Drama Queen, although Anders might be fighting for the title

A good read that explains why some people are disappointed:
Dragon Age 2 - News Roundup #7 - RPGWatch Forums

A little fragment from that:

Gamersmint noticed Inon Zur says he was pushed and it was "kind of a rush job". Interesting comments:
Zur: Sure thing. Iím actually really anxious for the game right now, so I can pop it in and start playing. Iím really looking forward to see it. I know there are a few bugs that still need to be fixed. Unlike other titles from Bioware, this [score] was kind of a rush job. EA really wanted to capitalize on the success of Origins, so the game was really being pushed hard to be released now. So Iíd like to know if there are bugs, or if thereís anything we could patch or fix.

I've put this on the backburner until they do fix the sound actually..it drops in ok then it's back to the echo chamber and so on...Homefont come's out tomoorow and I have that preorderd so it's not like I won't have something to play.
As for movement and combat..all the spcial attacks etc are linked to hot keys (aka numbers) thats fine but pity they did'nt consider using the bloody mouse to move and oh I dunno maybe have the camera track your toon...like ummmm maybe how it's done in WoW...Blizzard have a far better set up there.
And maybe not so many cut scenes/ in game movie BS. And Load screens ffs.
Other than that game is ok, not brilliant but playable.

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.
