The whole game seems to be slow to start for supposedly being so much shorter. After 8 hours and being level 8 I only have 4 companions and nothing has really happened... just doing random side missions for money. Maybe I am going through it a weird way.
I've seen several reviews mention that there really is no overarching storyline. There's no nemesis for you to defeat, nothing really bad going on. It's just a large collection of mostly unrelated small missions.
No idea whether that's true or not, but I've read it a few times.
It almost seems as if you become The Hero of Kirkwall when, in fact, Kirkwall didn't really need a hero to begin with?
I'm glad the combat is at least cool at higher diff levels. I'll still wait for the all-in-one pack next year.
