Three Major Design Flaws

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.

ill begin by saying this game... is 80% frustration 20% oh thats kinda cool i have never played a game where 99% of my deaths were of no fault of my own the camera is horrific possibly the worst ive seen least in the current consoles the point of the game is to escort this witch around and kill all the bad witches... 1st off the person you play as is invincible there is no game over if he dies unless you fall off a cliff or something the main reason you will die is the AI controlled witch you escort around she is the absolute dumbest computer companion to date half the time she wont even follow you she will go her own route and get lost which if you get to far away from each other....like 6 feet you wont be able to use your magic which is the only reason to even play this game and without it you suck plain and simple and then she will start to die if you dont find her in time also most the time she wants to die she will go out of her way to get you a game over she will stand in FIRE/Lava/Acid/Poison pretty much anything until she dies she has no sense your up fighting in melee combat and shes right there with you she mostly gets hit from cleave damage luckily enemies do often reserve you as the biggest threat i can deal with most of that but the number one most annoying thing for me was after every main boss you have to do a push button to finish them normally not a big deal... well THIS game dosnt recognize half the time when you push a button ive had to repeat boss fights so many times do to this flaw this game almost got sent back many times its a test of will power to finish this thing the only things i did enjoy about this game is the combat is pretty solid magic abilities are neat and quite powerful most one shot enemies least up to chp.11 bosses look cool but all have bugs not one boss went as im sure the developers intended quite buggy... oya last thing your movement speed haha...well its slow

Not That Bad As The Reviews

This game is not as bad as everyone is saying. Yes, this is your typical button masher with the occasional bad camera angle but it's a fun game with cool upgrades and great bosses. My biggest complaint is the game is very short. I beat the game in about 10 hours..............I do have the same complaints as the other people but I got used to the problems as the game went on. The camera angle sucks sometimes, cut scene after cut scene, load screen after load screen, and the horrible AI. Luckily you can press the start button to skip the cut scenes. You never die....ever but your partner does die......The game has good graphics, great combos, excellent upgrades, and easy acheviments...........If you're in to bloody button mashers then this game is for you........a good rent!!
