Inside Mac Games Previews Dragon Age 2

Inside Mac Games has posted a new preview of Bioware's Dragon Age 2. Coming to Mac gamers courtesy of TransGaming's Cider Portability Engine, the game puts players in the role of the legendary Hawke and gives them the chance to control the story of the champion's rise to power.

From the preview:

Combat is fast and fluid, the smooth animations making for a pleasing fight. The tutorial tips suggest I play around with my abilities. I press a button and the nearest three Darkspawn explode in gallons of blood and bone as Hawke performs a mighty sweep of his sword. Whoa. The mantra "fight like a Spartan" certainly seems to be well at work here. I cackled to myself as I tried out Hawke's other skills, which included a variety of group-slicing actions, stuns and power blows which allowed me to dice up whole groups of enemies within seconds. A useful Taunt skill also kept the fight focused on me, which allowed my Mage sister to remain unharmed.

Trying out this section as Mage Hawke was truly amazing, as the power of a high level mage is awesome to behold. Shards of ice fly through the air to pierce and freeze everyone in front of you and fireballs rain from the heavens to explode upon your enemies with devastating effect. Even default attacks were impressive as your character whips a staff around in a flurry of fantastic blows, bolts of magic flying into the melee. The Rogue class was equally impressive, displaying a mastery of acrobatics and knives, quickly eliminating individual foes with back-stabs, and stunning larger groups with smoke bombs.
