It's pretty hard to find words for this game..
I am playing on normal with normal enemy counter.
For the first hours I was running from one point to another .. and back again. And what for? To have a 1 minute talk with a party member where we decide to go back to the place we just came from. Fact is you have to run around excessively most of the time. An on top of that - even with normal enemy counter you get so many fights, it starts bugging you more and more.
It's definitely what it sounds like. Boring and awfully tedious.
You don't have much money to buy stuff and if you want to heal yourself at a bunny safepoint (which can be pretty useful), it costs you half your money. Every. Damn. Time. Just why? Good point is: there is much stuff lying on the floor waiting to get picked up.
While running around, it just doesn't feel like there is any (good) story behind that's worth playing. I'm missing something here. I couldn't find any depth and the first hours seem to be a long introduction to blunt characters.
Running around with stupid reasons and not-so-good dialogues would be half as bad if there was any good mapping. Most of the plants and stones on the ground are just there to block you. You can't cross them and have to run all around it to get somewhere. And that's another point where you get annoyed by this horrendous amount of fights.
Also there doesn't seem to be a good balancing, I am overpowered right from the start and I quickly found a secret room with an op weapon. So I am twice op and those damn things would die even faster. If they wouldn't die after one hit anyway.
What I hate most? Sometimes you have a choice what you want to do. If you say no you can't change your mind and have to reload an old safe game. If you say yes, you can't leave the dungeon until it's done. If you do (because you need potions and can't kill that overdone boss e.g.), you automatically abandon your quest and can't proceed. There goes your (possible) reward. Bye-bye!
I'll give it a try to see if it gets any better. I get my hopes up.
