Yeah I spent some more time with it at a friends place (360 version) and I can't see myself picking this up. I could overlook all of the minor stuff and even things like the tactical camera if they weren't so fucking lazy with encounter design. Spawning waves of enemies out of thin air, sometimes from 2 feet away is just absurd and lazy design. It really sucks the fun out of the combat, especially on the higher difficulties.
I think this will be the first Bioware game I haven't purchased. Oh well, back to a Fallout New Vegas modded playthrough.
