Dragon Age 2 Demo dropped on the XBL Marketplace this morning. I had been playing Dragon Age 1 to gear up for the March 8th release. Total waste of time: DA2 is nothing like DA1.
Yes, Ferelden is there. So are those pesky Darkspawn, but the rest of the game is unrecognizable. The gameplay is ridiculously fast, reminds me of Ninety-Nine Nights. The character view angle is bothersome as well. Felt like I had totally lost my peripheral and I had a hard time “seeing” the enemy. The graphics and character modeling is reminiscent of Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth. Hair and makeup looks to be provided by Final Fantasy. So many cowlicks and flips!
