I dont know if it was just me or the fact that my broadband was so bad that it took 2 hours for the fucking demo to fully download, but either way my conclusion still stand that my brief encounter with this game was awful.
I dont like Mass Effect because,well, its way to Sci-Fi I dont know how to put it. Firing plasma from your gun or some other pink shit can get really boring at times, but not only that, the fact that its like a hybrid between Star Wars and Star Trek makes me vomit a little. To put it short I don't like Sci-Fi's!
So Dragon Age? Well I actually love fantasy, its something I cant get enough of. J.R.R. Tolkien and David Eddings being my two favourite writers setted the foundation of fantasy storytelling in my opinion. From what I can tell in Dragon Age, dwarves are small and love axes, elves are big and love trees something very similar Tolkien wrote in his story. A little diversity with these races could have been nice, it was easy to guess by just looking at the game.
So establishing that its the same as any other fantasy game Dragon Age 2 spices its combat up with four abilities you can access by pressing X,Y,B (for Xbox 360 controller) and A which is the button you will be pressing repeatedly to kill these darkspawns or whatever the fuck they're called. To be honest these darkspawn look fucking ridiculous the character models for these are terribly shit looking not making them threatening at all.
Its the first game in a long while where I can genuinely complain about the graphics, they are very shit looking, getting close to the character models in dialogue truly show the imperfections and how flat it looks. The map itself in the demo isn't at all exotic or remotely interesting to play on, from what I can remember it was a lot of dirt and blood, but thats it.
The camera angle from the third person perspective is way far out, like the combat is really gritty which gets me ticklish inside but I can barely see them guts flying. The gritty style its got going for the game got me interested but when I saw how far the perspective was I realised my experience with this game wasn't going to be the best.
There was a lot of talk around this game and hype, I have heard that it is more of a PC title but I can honestly say its one title I will not look twice at.
