I have just over $20 on PSN and was looking for a new PS3 full game to play, preferably an RPG. DA2 is the only one I have given a second look to. I played DAO about halfway through but thought the story was decent but the action was a bit slow. I heard 2 is faster in that regard, more action-like.
I paid $10 for it and think it was basically worth that. However, it is vastly inferior to the original in just about every way. I gave it a chance, but it deserves most of the criticism it gets. I wouldn't pay $20 for it though.

If you played DAO, then you played a far superior game. There is absolutely not a single thing about DA2 that is better. The itemization is worse, the immersion is worse, the classes are worse, and the characters are worse. Think of it as a completely dumbed down, casualized DAO, that reuses the same generic maps over, and over, and over again.
Fallout 3 is amazing I say get the add-on's. DA2 was one of my biggest disappointments can't only thing I like was that the combat was faster other than that it got dull quick I got to the end and that was it never picked it up again.
