Ooc, has there ever been a game company who struggled to even get to the level of *crappy* gameplay for singleplayer, actually successfully design Coop multiplayer gameplay?

It did but the games story was still weak. So I'm not sure if it succeeded as I had to force myself to finish it.

Now back on topic I'm not surprised but I do know there will be a bunch of you cant judge the final product on demos crap again. See I tried the DA2 demo and it proved my suspicions right.

Glad I only paid $15 for it.;)

Yeah, but at least you sound like you are going in without negative preconceptions.

Just replayed ME2 because I was (really) bored. It's pretty, but not as pretty as I remember…and the game play is tedious, which I did remember, but time had blunted that remembrance. "Ah! Have to stay in cover again…lets me try that box shaped rocky outcrop!" uh huh. Lets see if ME3 can inject something new and interesting for single player types. At least a demo will be useful - like couchpotato I tried the DA2 demo, was not impressed, but bought the game anyway. I will play the demo and wait for a range of opinions before I think of buying ME3.

It seems that melee combat has improved compared with ME2.
