Sure the crapy camera can get you killed and the dialog is bad (Heinrich will occasional point out the plot holes in an incredibly humorous way as if he’s channeling the players bewilderment), but the worst problem by far are the QTEs.
I’ve seen some bad button prompting, but these drain all semblance of enjoyment from the otherwise thrilling game. I’m all but convinced it’s imposable to land most of these without knowing what buttons will pop up ahead of time and that’s no guaranty as the game frequently ignores correct inputs.
I really want to recommend this game, but the good just comes with too much baggage.
The game is not perfect in any way, its your same old hack and slash, but thats not a bad thing. It does exactly what a hack and slash needs to do to be entertaining.
The flaws come into play with the horrible camera, and the horrendous button sequences. The camera is tolerable in most cases, but the epic moment you should have gotten out of the cut scene/button sequence parts of the boss battles really ruin the entire boss fight.
There are some glitches causing you to get stuck, or horrible fights with ledges that you can fall off (which happens too easy on one boss fight...) but nothing horrendous enough that i'd stop playing, just had to cuss a couple times and get back to it. And the auto-save feature helps make these glitches tolerable because you don't lose hardly any time the 2-3 times you might get stuck.
Overall I gave this game an 8 (in all reality i would have given it a 7.5, but round up i suppose) because it is a good hack and slash with a cool twist. The ability to use and upgrade the witches magic was a nice addition. The story is compelling, and who doesn't love half naked witch babes? I really wish they would have worked on it a little bit longer to fix the bugs, but its still pretty good, and at least worth a rent in my own opinion.
