Geoff from Lazygamer gives us is impressions on the Dragon Age 2 demo
"I spent over 60 hours running around Ferelden with my pointy-eared mage. Odd, considering I was more than just a little underwhelmed with the game’s first few hours. Glad I stuck it out, because i ended up having one of the better RPG experiences of my gaming life.
When the sequel was announced, I found myself in two minds; on the one hand I’d get more Dragon age – but on the other I knew I’d probably lose weeks of my life again. When Bioware said they’d be streamlining the sequel, doing things like limiting the magnitude to which characters can be moulded I was in two minds for a second time. It worked well enough for Mass Effect 2 – but the last thing I’d want in a fully-fledged RPG is a “dumbed-down” experience."
