Dragon Age II Demo

The Dragon Age Website now offers downloads of the promised playable demo for Dragon Age II, BioWare's RPG sequel. The demo is available in three varieties, an English demo which includes Espa˝ol, Italiano, Polski, and Русский subtitles, which is mirrored on AtomicGamer, ComputerGames.ro, Gamer's Hell, WorthPlaying; a Deutsch demo, which is mirrored on Gamer's Hell; and a demo en Franšais, which is mirrored on AtomicGamer and Gamer's Hell. They also remind us of the previously announced promotion that will provide players with two in-game items if the demo achieves one million downloads and logins by March 1st, and word is that all players who complete the demo by May 31st will receive and additional in-game item. Here's word:

In the demo, players will venture through the game's prologue, choosing from three different character classes. They'll also learn more about Hawke and hone their skills and abilities that will make them the ultimate hero. After finishing the prologue, players will enter a key new location in the world of Dragon Age, Kirkwall, befriending Isabela, a romantic interest in the game who is also a deadly smuggler. Upon completion of the demo, players will unlock a special weapon, Hayder's Razor, an ancient dwarven blade which increases health, mana, and combat abilities, in the full release of Dragon Age 2.

I let them die during the intro part. It's possible that injuries were disabled there but I have a feeling they've just been removed entirely to make the game more accessible. Or maybe they're only present on the higher difficulties? One can always hope.

As for mage cool-downs, they seemed way too quick to me. There was never a point where I didn't have a spell ready to cast. The powerful AoE attacks also cast really quickly so the chances of an enemy interrupting the spell are extremely low (if they can even be interrupted at all). Finally, I encountered the same big issue that I encountered with the archer; most of the enemies just ignored me. In DAO, enemies would usually focus on mages and archers first and had to distracted with warrior or rogue abilities. In the DA2 demo, I could pretty much just sit back and spam spells without worry.

Oh, and the influence system seems jacked. When you meet the Templar dude, if you're really polite to him, you gain 10 friendship points with your apostate mage sister. That doesn't even make any sense. She should hate the templar and want nothing to do with him. In DAO, the likes/dislikes of your party members were much more consistent and logical.
