DA2īs main plot is more linear than DA:Oīs by the virtue of act structure alone (nothing inherently bad with this obviously), but on top of that majority of main plot segments canīt be played in different order and you rarely get some alternatives in solution department.
It's a shame because DA2 has a very solid ground on which to build. The Qunari drama is very intense and the mages vs. templars stuff is really well-suited to some real choice and consequence and political intrigue. Unfortunately the game does not make good on much of it.

There is even less choice in DA2 than the Mass Effect games, which is pretty insane when you think about it.
