Also, a lot of the human enemies he fights are soldiers. Now, games have a tendancy to depict the basic soldier as an low-level threat, which is silly as there's a good chance that soldier could be some veteran of 100 battles and so be pretty damn good himself. Even a fresh recruit would have picked up a thing or two in a land as dangerous as the game makes out. So I loved that in TW2 you could get a beatdown from 4 guys if you weren't careful - that ballista fight right at the start was a baptism by fire the first time I played it. Makes a change from pretty much every other big RPG around right now.
