    what did you think? I liked it. The combat felt way more visceral from both warrior and mage points of view. I think the visualisation of combat was the weakest part of DA:O and it looks like they've nailed a much tighter system here. Blood gets all over the floor and stuff.

    However, the demo seemed really disjointed and tough to engage with. I reckon this is due to it being an odd choice of game to demo-ize. When the focus is on building and developing a character, it's hard to immerse yourself when you're just handed an uneditable one and told to level it up a couple of times...What's the point? I actually got a huge wave of the 'I am wasting my time' feeling when I was having to go through the motions of levelling up 3 characters for a 20-min experience.

    Nevertheless, worth it to do some fightin'. Cant wait until it arrives proper.

    It'll keep me occupied until Skyrim.

    Good stuff this demo, tried all three builds.

    Looks great and i'm sure the story will be awesome but am I really going to have to mash the X button for 50+ hours? I'll be very disappointed if the base attack isn't automatic somehow in the full version like it was in Origins. Doesn't that bother anyone else or am I the only one????

    Can I beat them to death with a Massive Armor boot? I always have found that in games improvised weapons are seldom used.

    I couldn't get into it for some reason, I heard the first was great so I was a little happy to see how the second will play out. But honestly even though I love when they release demos for games I want to check out I don't think RPGs play out well in a demo format. Like the Mass Effect 2 demo was fun but I felt it was a poor representation of how awesome the real game is.

    But the Dragon Age demo was okay, I personally felt the combat was a little weird, the entire aspect of switching between characters was kind of neat but in the end I couldn't finish the demo I got bored. The graphics were okay but that doesn't matter because graphics are the icing on the cake for a game, the gameplay just felt a little bland to me I don't know why.

    That being said never played the first so don't persecute me.
