That has nothing to do with less quality, but yet I feel the same neurons firing when playing this. Calling this simplistic is just perspective. I could be much simpler and I do recall people complaining about 1 & 2 that the game almost "played itself". Don't suddenly pretend the first games were deep experiences, because they were not. They were mindless hack and slash just the same. This has better story and dialogue. Can't comment on the skills/talents/proficiency system yet.
Seriously though? No gender choice? Who fucking cares, it's a hack and slash.
