It looks like the game will be above my expectations .

If i understood that correct there are difficulty spikes ?
Yes - I particularly found combat against groups reasonably hard - but I'm not the world's best action gamer. You tend to get swarmed and the heavy fighters hit hard. Some fights have 6 or so simultaneous opponents (at least, in the preview code).

Are there any stats or other numbers???
Unfortunately, the preview code had an expiration DRM system and it happened to fall across a heavy (real) work schedule for me. I decided to use the limited time I had to see as much content as possible rather than experiment with different skills. Also, since the code expired a week ago, I can't go back and fact-check any of my notes.

GameBanshee has an excellent preview that looks at the character side in more depth - check that out. I'd say it looks much more interesting than TW1 but this is an action/RPG -- it hasn't suddenly become a turn-based strat RPG. The focus is on skills, rather than stats.

On combat, I'm not sure what you'd like to know - any specific questions?
