This game is superb in all departments.
The effort that has gone into it is stunning and the amount of voice acting is beyond anything I have played before
Kate Mulgrew (Capt Katherin Janeway from Star Trek Voyager
Tim Curry (needs no introductions)
Claudia Black (Farscape,Stargate,Pitch Black)
The relationships between you and your team are very nicely done,I am currently sleeping with Morrigan with other members of my team voicing their displeasure at this.
I have a top of the range Alienware system built to spec just for gaming and the load times are minimal at best so the guy saying he is getting 1minute load times might want to splash out on a faster machine with more memory and more powerfull gfx card?
All in all this is a stunning game with a LOT of choice and depth and thanks to the selection of starting classes I think a 2nd or even 3rd run through could be on the cards.
I will say that if you can do the magi tower quest and unlock the healer companion asap then she makes life a LOT easier as she is a pure healer class and keeps your team alive for ages especially if you have a well armoured tank taunting bosses as your tank will stand toe2toe while being healed and you get to chip away without being targeted.
If you are a fan of Baldurs Gate, NWN etc then buy this game, I promise you wont regret it,apart from when you suddenly notice its stupid o clock in the morning and you have been playing all night ;)
