My impressions thus far are rather meh. Kirkwall is pretty bland and doesn't really hold a candle to the areas in DAO. I really dislike the dialogue wheel, as it forces me to guess what I'm going to say and makes me feel detached from my character. Combat is enjoyably tactical on Nightmare difficulty and I haven't encountered any issues with arrows going through walls. The story hasn't really gripped me yet and I haven't faced any interesting choices yet. In DAO, the first moral choice you make as a city elf is whether to let some nobles rape your sister and spare your village or save your sister and sacrifice your village. That was an interesting choice.
