Yup, same here.

I just never felt like I was progressing or growing as a character/player/party. Never felt any stronger as I levelled, and there wasn't a great deal of difference in the items.

Game world and the areas felt 'dead' too.

Enjoyed it, and got my moneys worth, but no real interest in going back to finish the game

Toss me in the same boat...

The story was interesting, once you figured out what the fuck was going on, and the way you get tossed into the narrative didn't help at all.

My biggest complaint, is that I'm level 11 already, just finished Act II, and my gear is only slightly better than what it was at level 1. None of the unique items feel unique. And other than my mage/priest/chanter having higher level spells, my melee characters felt like town guards.
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishfull thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.
