The demo's a defect anyways since it's a 3 month old build that the studio was forced by EA to turn over to a third party for demo release, and that's how the bugs made it out.
If they fix the bizarre-ass bug that makes dialogue suddenly start zipping past unreadably, I'll be happy. I had to play the demo twice because it kept happening at important moments
I like the world they've created, I like the combat, I like the system, and I like their scenery so very much. Enough so that they've already sold me a copy of the game, despite my reservations.
From what I've seen of the game itself (outside the well of souls) I'm a bit perturbed by how uncustomized the dialogue is. If I can play an Alfar, and ask everyone I meet about the alfar, and not one of them ever seems to reference that I am
one, I find that a bit troubling. It causes flashbacks of the NWN2 plot wherein the new party member, a druid, tried to explain to my PC, also a druid, the mysterious world of druids, ultimately concluding that my character, still a druid, would never understand it the way she, a druid, did, because it was too much of a druid thing. Just totally breaks immersion for me. I would prefer that they not give Player Characters certain racial or character choices if they aren't going to change the dialogue to support those choices. Like, I'd rather be limited to playing human than have the option to play an alfar and have everyone jarringly act like I'm still human.
