First impressions: I haven't played this game for too long, but I'm not liking it so far. I'm trying, but the enemy encounters so far have either been ridiculously unfair(bairly doing any damage to enemies) or mind numbingly easy(require absolutely no strategy and are therefore boring). The overworld map so far also seems way too busy, with trees and such always in the way of the camera. I'm going to play some more, but so far it's been a negative experience.
Edit: Alright, I found out that you can right click an enemy to find out their difficulty, so now I'm not running in to impossible battles. I'm starting to get some strategies down (learn that ressurection spell and spam it to minimize losses). I found a camera mod, so the clausterphobic camera is gone. The battle difficulty could still be better, though. Battles still range from super easy to don't even attempt this right now. The game is starting to get it's hooks into me, since it can be relatively charming even if the humor doesn't always work. I'll continue to play it, since it's a good game to waste some time on mindlessly while watching some videos or doing other things.
As far as the interace goes, it could do a better job of highlighting the NPCs that sell you units on the map as it can be annoying to find them after you've visisted them once. The dedicated map itself is terrible, as it gives you less information than the mini-map --no idea how that makes any sense. I would turn the map rotation off in the options because it will just confuse you further. Quest objectives aren't marked on the map and you can't track them, so it doesn't even mark the general direction you should go in, which is all I ask really; I'm not a fan of having to check the map every few steps --speaking of which, you can't zoom out the mini-map at all and that would alleviate those problems.
These all sound like negatives, but like I said, this is a good game to just play through while you're doing something else. Hopefully it will pick up in a few hours since it's a fairly long game and it can afford to. My experience is improving so far, and I expect that it will just keep getting better.
Just a bit of information on the camera mod: if you make some changes to the config file yourself, just note that you need to travel to another area (go through a loading screen portal) to actually see the changes (as well as restarting the game of course, but that goes without saying). I wasn't seeing any changes to the camera and I had no idea, so just keep that in mind. Also, try not to go too crazy with the FOV setting because it will affect performance. My fov is at 40 and that seems fine.
