Squaring the DA2 Circle

What do you do when you release a very successful (commercially speaking) game that nevertheless gets some raspberries from fans of the preceding game? You tread carefully:

"We have some new DLC that's upcoming that's going to try and address some of the comments and try and provide the fans with the things they're looking for, both the core fans and the new fans," BioWare boss Ray Muzyka told Eurogamer. "We're committing to making sure all the products in the franchise going forward are going to appeal to a wide audience, both the core and more."

While there were flaws in the game (reuse of maps, anyone?), it was enjoyable, and the story went somewhere interesting. Personally, I'm very curious to see where they take the core story - both in DLC and future games.

I personally didn't think the map reuse was all that bad, seeing as there was usually some years between visits to the same locations, enemies spawning in waves got old REALLY quickly though.

What really pissed me off was the end of Chapter2 + Chapter3 though.

The worst case of railroad plot I have encountered in... forever.

Not to mention they have the audacity of showcasing to the point of abuse how bad of a choice you've made, irrespective of which side you chose to support.
