First of all: I was really looking forward to the game. The graphics are really nice with a lot of details and the story is really going for more. I also like the humor. The cutscenes are comics, but that's what makes the game so charming and...
not out of place.
The fighting system really sucks. It is complex and may be well thought out and is action-packed (almost hectic), but unfortunately the feedback from the controls is not accurate. . . Especially in boss fights: Dodge, block, counter, . . . is really no fun if the actions are not timed properly because the control reacts too slowly. Unfortunately, mistakes lead to an opposing hit combo later in the game: Stun, Hit, Hit, Hit, Hit, Hit, Stun, Hit, Hit, Hit, Hit, Hit, Stun, Hit, Hit, Hit, . . . Char down. . . Optionally, the status effect can vary with Fear or similar. You can assign support skills to the team, but the K. I. feels stalled. The level of difficulty increases significantly after a few hours, because even the opponents don't get dumber, and unfortunately can't be changed. (Don't misunderstand, I feel it just right, but as said the control annoys-. -) The result is mixed, with the positive aspects predominating. Only my hate-love to the fighting system reduces the first impression after 5 hours of playing time.
Will certainly continue to play but can only recommend everyone to watch a Let's Play to the game in advance or to read other reviews.
From me anyway thumbs up, but would only give a total of 7/10 points
