My first game of this series but my take on it after a 2 hour trial was pretty poor. You get a avatar that can use like 10 different weapons but each weapon kinda has a specialty. But unfortunately even after trying them all I found most useless because your avatar is so hard to control. Controls are confusing as well, whereas the shealth weapon button is different from the unsheath, thus I found myself wasting herbs and such when all i was trying to do was pull my weapon out. NPC text is also crazy small making my eyes hurt after only a few conversations. I ended up pretty much skipping them all. Graphics are decent but still don't make up for the small irritable things you would have to go through.
Point is: Clearly the game has depth, but is not user friendly nor is it very concise with player movements.
the style of play is a little bit to get used to, especially with the controls. but with plenty of options for armor and weapons, this game keeps you striving for better and better. I've sunk hundreds of hours into this game online. best online game on wii u. for now.
