" ...that Dragon Age 2 has been dumbed down, suffers of a severe case of unfounded bias. The prologue's final fight against the Ogre - it took me like 5 attempts to finally understand how much more micromanagment I had to do "
Let me stop you right there. I beat the ogre on that difficulty by doing nothing more than running around in circles with whoever the ogre was chasing. As for the rest of the game..well..you clearly cant speak to that but let me just say it gets even easier from there, and the only challenge I ever had was making sure I always had health potions. Am I biased because I played more of the game before forming an opinion on it?
AND WHY WOULD ANYONE BIASED AGAINST A GAME SPEND $60 ON IT?
that first fight against the ogre can be one with as little as 2 characters assuming at least one of them is ranged, same for one of the dragon bosses too. just kite and shoot with the player the boss is attacking.
Cheese is the word people use when they rely on blizzard to solve their in-game problems. If you aren't willing to put in the time to defend against such builds then you don't deserve to win those games any more than the opponent. The one reliable way to get better is to work harder at it.
This post wasn't necessarily directed at the op, I'm just tired of people bitching about stuff that they have the ability to fix. The ssfiv boards are kinda the same way.
