I was initially worried about the Mass Effect-yness of it, but I found it pretty slick... a little underwhelming visually but most of the advanced rendering is locked out for the demo so I assume we'll be able to use our beefy PC's to get much more out of it

Despite the faster pace it still felt RPG-y, but yes my main gripe was with the camera not zooming out to the levels seen in the first one... I like to get a nice overhead view and plan combat accordingly. At least you can still pause and give orders, but it can still be tricky to target distant enemies. I found in the first game that even though I preferred the Baldur's Gate/Neverwinter feel of the overhead camera, I would often submit to using the over-the-shoulder view for exploration for ease of navigation anyway. No doubt there'll be a camera mod down the track so I wouldn't worry about it anyway

Still, it sealed the deal for me and I've preordered

I liked it alot, will definitely be getting this. At first I wasn't so sure but after playing through it for each class, snazzy.

I seem to always gravitate to 'fighter', I think I'll have to try another class. Seemed a lot more restrictive that previous Bioware titles, because it's a demo?

If they introduce the option or someone does a mod to zoom the camera out so it is like the first game i think this would ease alot of the bad feelings that are out there in inet land.

Just realised i am off on holiday the week after release

Personally I liked the fighter the best. Mage is powerful, but something about a large 2Hder chopping through swaths of bodies really appeals to me.

The game is ready for pre-loading on Steam if anyone has this pre-ordered

Yeah, I got a robo call earlier telling me that they're going to have a midnight launch at the Gamestop where I pre-ordered the signature edition.
