Absolutely. DA2 is, like it or not, still very much a sequel to DA. Dumbed down, yes, but still very much DA. If you didn't play DA very deeply you could barely notice the differences. It's not some other game skinned to a DA theme like Fallout 3, who has absolutely nothing in common except a little imagery and the title with it's predecessors, if you really must call FO and FO2 the predecessors of Fallout 3, that is.
