Depends. If you were annoyed because of the spawn rate, then that's addressed by reducing it to "less" in the options screen. I found that setting satisfactory. If I'm remembering correctly, the bugged demo spawn rate setting was broken. On the other hand, if you didn't like the underlying mechanics of combat, that hasn't changed. So if you didn't like that in the demo, you still won't like it in the CE.

The writing is, of course, just as stilted as it always was. If you're looking for a great, deep story that sucks you in and branches all over the place, DL is definitely not that kind of game. It's pretty much a straight-up aRPG. The story simply serves to move you from one killing field to the next.
