Sometimes I wonder wtf the reviewers here are smoking. The reviewer says that the story in this game isn't as good as in Origins? Origins had a TERRIBLE story. Along with Mass Effect 2 it was by far the worst storyline BioWare ever put together. I liked the game and played through it twice, but it was mostly because I enjoyed the tactical combat. The story and characters were absolute pants IMO. The other thing I'm not understanding is how he's saying the combat is less tactical. It seems the exact same to me, just faster than before and less clunky. I haven't played DA:2 for more than 2-3 hours yet, but so far I'm really impressed and disagree with everything the review had to say. So far the improvements in this game are immense.
