Dungeon seige 2

Ok so my main charicter wont auto attack, and I have to keep clicking the target to get him to attack?

Fyi I didn’t know where to put this (the forum said games and problems so I though here).
Also, what are your impressions of ds2? The interface seems much more complex and harder to use. They seemed to fix some problems like auto item pickup (picking up all the crap in ds1 was a pain).
Before you say, did you search? No I didn’t searche her or google or anywhere else (feeling lasy). So does anyone have any first impressions about ds2? I have only played for about 10 minutes to check it out (about to go back to play some more) so I’m still geting a feel for it.
