Well, first thing is turn the difficulty down to Casual. Also, just concentrate your attacks on the arch-demon. The darkspawn (I think) infinitely respawn, so you're wasting your time fighting them all.

Call in reinforcements. The Dwarves/Golems are kind of slow to the fight, but they're really tough. The Elves are great because they attack at range. The werewolves and Mages are weak but do massive damage.

Also, it's a great idea to have somebody like Wynn in your party and have her set to heal anyone that drops below 50% health.

And as Eggnogga said, the darkspawn will just keep coming at you in hordes. Let your party/army distract most of them and only deal with the ones that actually come to attack you at the Ballista.

Read them.... apply them.

Also, mark your whole party (+) when moving from one ballista to another/through the battlefield. Otherwise your party members might commit suicide by attacking random darkspawn. Once you arrive at your destination (ballista/Archdemon), kill any darkspawn that followed you and focus on the Archdemon again.

call for reinforcements of course, but also, if you want have one in your team, it is recommended to have a mage, so that he can use aoe types of spells, killing all those darkwpawns easily
