The combat is better than the first one and so far I'm having as much or more fun playing it than Origins. I haven't done any of the main quests yet though, just mostly side quests as there is a ton of them so far, so I can't really comment on how the story is compared to Origins.
I am loving Dragon Age 2
Yep, liking it a lot. Everything is just snappier; game moves. I'm still pausing and issuing orders, but it just happens faster. I like it. Definitely makes filler combat less of an annoyance. Now if only auto attack was patched in
Also, I'm stuck with that bitch Carver. boo.
I'm liking it, but I have some gripes.
1: You can't customize party armor.
2: Don't have the alternative weapon sets like in DAO. My rouge always had a bow on Secondary and I don't like having to carry any unnecessary items.
3: Enemies keep popping up in battle. It can get annoying having to fight a third wave of enemies when you're almost dead.
Other than that, it's a blast. I played for 7 strait hours last night.
Playing on PC, I really miss the overhead camera.
Jade Empire was amazing.
I'm liking Dragon Age 2, although all teh reused resources feel like a budget game almost. If you're going to reuse the dungeon then just section it off and make it seperate, don't show me the other parts of it that I wandered down and then just put an inexplicable solid stone door there. I also don't like that warriors can't dual wield or be archers. There are a lot of little qualms about this that make it less enjoyable than Origins, but overall still a lot of fun.
