Horrible

TERRIBLE

First boss: one shots you, over and over and over. You can't both attack and dodge, you can't block, you can't out maneuver it. I spent 3 hours on the first boss (not the time you're supposed to escape, but after you walk through the white light and HAVE to fight him) Maybe it's because I started the game as a caster... and it won't let me actually cast spells?
The controls are wonky as heck. Why can't I change them? Why can't I navigate the menu's with the control stick? Why are the most common buttons used in the worst place? Why is there no mini-map in, from what I've read, is a MASSIVE game? The fight MIGHT be manageable if I could put they buttons in a semi-useful place.
I play a game for enjoyment, not endless frustration and headaches.

this game starts you off between two types of people that can not be killed and you have to get souls to level up and you can only pick one thing I leveled up to 15 and stall could not kill and one with one hit

This game does not teach you anything, ok it teaches you basic controls but that's it. There is little to no exploration in this thing, it sets you up with enemies that cannot be killed, gives you cryptic clues that are just random and make no sense, you know what, bottom line, this game isn't an RPG it's a game designed for masochists and morons, you want a really good game that's actually an RPG? Go buy/rent Skyrim, you will not be disappointed.
