It is different and better in many ways. You have control over both hands so you can use both for weapons, weapons with magic, weapons with shields, two handed weapons and so on. Magic is short and long range. You also have bows which feel very satisfying. You have separate controls for each hand. Different weapons have different weight to them and you can 'feel' it during combat and movement. Combining combat buttons with movement/jump keys produces magnificent moves.

There are many degrees of freedom to customise your combat. I sometimes see other players naked without any armour and rely on their combat reflexes to win admirably. Other (lazy gits like myself) like to collect heavy armour and move and smash like the Hulk to win! The degrees of freedom available are amazing.
