There's still an pseudo-isometric view. The combat video shows that you can pull the camera pretty far away. Not the 'real' thing, but I never used isometric personally so I do not care much. Also, the dialog wheel is being improved so it's not as bad as ME's, and when the game is planned (and devs stated this was kinda important IIRC) for you to have a human family and a voiced protagonist, you can harldy be a dwarf now can you. And anyway, Bioware hardly listens to their fans on gameplay issues (and, as ME2 proved, that can backfire in wrong ways sometimes), with good reasons however. Self-entitlement over at their forums is second only to the RPG Codex's. And isometric view is not 'dead', of course. Fewer games use it, that's all, doesn't mean we entered a Dark Age of Gaming or something. D3 is the excpetion because I can harldy see myself playing a Hack-and-Slash in first person. ...What was the topic again? Oh yes, Beth doesn't like Interplay daydreaming about what they would do if they win this endless case. Pity.
