My 2 cents,
The game (Morning's Wrath) looks lovely, sounds lovely, plays great and the content present in the demo was interesting enough to make me skip lunch.
I absolutely loved the black and white art and the music theme used for the Leowyns and Ashidians back story. Morning's story (main story) seems very worthwhile. Dialogues are well written.
I had no issues with pathfinding, interface, or any other but i do agree that melee seems to take a bit of getting used to.
There was really no need for Morning to nudge me to grab the full version at the end of the demo, 'cause i was already sold by the time she reached the tainted Mana Well. Just downloaded the full version and i can't wait to venture into the Eastern path :)
I played the demo at 1600x1200. No crashes, freezes, lockups, slowdowns or any other such beasts.
I guess i'll have to take a look at Malathedra's demo aswell, and keep an eye out for Caverns of the North.
Right now i'm going out to get some much needed FOOD.
