This game is fun to play, solid combat, good story...but I'm a little disaponted in the dubbing down of the RPG elements, I still like the game, but it doesn't seem as deep as the first one.

Crafting seems very limited compared to DA1.
You can't equip armor on your party (that something I enjoyed in the first one)
Other Items seem to be a second thought (they even have a garbage can as an icon)
You can't zoom out as far as in DA1.

Time will tell but as it stands I preferred the first one...except for the combat.
