It was time someone implement rather deep companions other than Bioware or Obsidian taking a Bioware crown in a series.

Apart that I don't see where is your Bioware stuff:
  • Winning about DA2 an action RPG is irrelevant here.
  • Winning about map reuse like in DA2 and ME1 is irrelevant here.
  • Whining about companions being dead puppets and joke machines out of camp like in DAO, irrelevant here.
  • Whining about linear dungeons and small maps like in most Bioware games, irrelevant here.
  • whining about bland exploration with no stuff to discover in Bioware games, irrelevant here, I don't think a RPG have more good secrets to discover, perhaps some Avernum. There's also multiple tricks but I admit not many are difficult, but it's not Bioware stuff, now Bioware skip that point almost entirely.

So what, because there's 4 classes, specializations, and codex? Lol it's winks:
  • Jeff is using Codex since a long time and just copied the name and giving xp. There's nothing wrong nor major in doing it.
  • Ok only four classes remind the 3 classes of DA, and specialization remind something. But that's just words the mechanism of classes and specializations are hugely different than in DA. And specialization general idea isn't even a Bioware invention, there's at least Dungeon Lords that did it a long time before, and probably more other older RPG. For example AD&D did it even if in a strange way.
