I played the demo this morning (OnLive), it peaked my interest given that it has different grades of loot, hidden areas, chests, barrel smashing, character customisation, crafting, side-quests, engaging tactical combat (pick archers off from range with magic or take them out first with melee or ignore them and take out the melee first whilst using a projectile shield - that's just one of the three characters), skill-trees, co-op multiplayer, xp, skillpoints... graphically it's Dragon Age 2, gameplay it's tricky to pin down, definitely has a Snowblind vibe to it though.

On the downside it had subtitles out of synch with the onscreen action (easy fix, turn off subtitles), and often I'd be pummelling away at an enemy and doing no damage whatsoever for no apparent reason until I broke off and reattacked again (can't figure that one out).

When anyone includes stuff like that in a demo I wait for review scores, if it all worked as well as it was supposed to I'd say an easy 8/10.
