I'm trying really hard not to sound like a broken record here, but as the resident DA hater it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that I did not get much out of this demo. I made two goes at the demo (one as Rogue, one as Mage), but the game just felt stiff, flat, and dull. At least the first DA I was into on a story level, but this demo gave me very little of a sense of the games narrative. Instead, once the 'real story' begins, I just found myself with a group of dull characters mashing the attack button until my cooldown time expired, using my one skill, and repeating until the Darkspawn died.
I'm willing to just blame it on the demo for now, but I hated it's presentation and thought it felt like a step backwards. I'd like to note that I really want to like this game, and do still plan to go back to DA someday. In the meantime though, I have pretty much lost any interest in DA2.
