I really enjoyed Dragon Age; its mix of interesting characters, each with rich and well told back stories and individual personalities, deep involving story and fun combat system drew me in.

Re: Dragon Age 2 Xbox 360 Preview

Can't say I liked the demo when I played it on the PC, felt very much like a console game, a disapointment after the original. The combat was also hugely different - again though, this could just be compared the PC original.

I'll pick this up on the Xbox, as I have no intention of putting a hundred or so hours into a frankly bad PC version, but if it's as console focused as I believe it to be, it should at least be fun there.

Re: Dragon Age 2 Xbox 360 Preview

I initially tried the PC demo...and hated it.
The Interface is awful looking, like no effort has been put into it at all and the controls just feel broken. I never played the first on PC but apparently the controls worked and was nice and playable, these however I just cant see myself getting used to.

Give the xbox version a try, it plays a lot nicer. Feels like thats where its meant to belong. On the consoles using a pad.

Re: Dragon Age 2 Xbox 360 Preview

That's why I'm disappointed, it feels like it'll be fine on a console, I will play it, but the first was literally perfect on PC - playing it on a console afterwards felt awkward, which is how it should be for all games in a series I think, not one specifically for PC, then the next for console, with the other platform being an afterthought.

I'm just pissed as I still play Origins now quite a lot, because the mods I can get/make can add a new lease of life to it; this will obviously be missing now unless I put up with an annoying interface and ****e controls for my beloved Rogue.

I liked the demo but I didn't play it as a fan of Dragon Age: Origins. But overall, I enjoyed it. Lots of gore though. Not saying thats a problem. In fact, it was the best thing about the demo. :P

Got to say this was one thing I noticed when I saw this at GamesCom. I remember that the first one was pretty graphic, but thought they'd gone into overdrive. Still not sure about BioWare RPGs myself, they've got a great reputation and I love the settings, but I've always found them a little tricky to get into inventory and interface wise.
