@raiz265: Yeah the dude says that DA2 plays the same as the first on the PC, but I'm talking about the console version. I thought people would understand that my concerns were about the console version since this was a Quicklook for the consoles.
@christ0phe: Totally agree with you. The HUD looks horrible, that conversation wheel and icons is a stupid idea(If the dialog says that I'm going to attack or side with you, why would I need an icon that represents the same thing) and the changes in combat and animations look horrible.
Part of DA:O charm was the tactical combat system they had in place. Yes you can still pause the combat now, but the developers designed DA2 to be played by just pushing the attack button to win every encounter rendering the pause feature useless.
@StriderNo9: Hate to break the news to you but a 5 star review is the same as the game getting a score of a 9-10 or 90-100 so it really doesn't matter. Like the others are saying, review scores are so passe', round table discussions like they do during the bombcast are the FUTURE!
