That is the worst combat system I ever experienced in an action rpg, no in any game ever. Seriously why do people think that its good and even compare it to dark souls? Its not hard it sucks. Its unresponsive, random, luck based, no indicators for nothing and hitboxes seem to be completly wacky. Either a fight is laughable easy on any difficulty and you can stunlock, dodge, dodge through the encounter or you need to abuse gimmicks to progress. Anyone that compares this to dark souls combat system is fucking lobotomized. edit: Also basing the combat on preperation and at the same time throwing the player into unexpected fights is completly retarded. For a AAA title their seems to be not much quality control going on. rant over edit2: Ok I have another one, placing the quick time event on the bottom of the screen does not actually help, especially if its freaking small. Did no one in that whole development team think about how big that thing is on a 1920 x 1080 screen??? Oh and yeah giving that icon the same or almost the same color as the enviroment was also a clever way to rise the difficulty.
