No, it is not a Dark Soul, I have finished DS 1 and DS2, and at least DS1 despite of being difficult it was fair.
Here we are talking about game cheating - in every fight in every ocassion.
E.g. I am fighting against Rebecca (witch) which at level 6 and I am at level 7. She has only 15 HP, her companion cast on her regeneration, which regenerate 30 HP, I stunned her because she has not any armor. Now it is my thief turn - suddenly she has 135 HP and 20 armor :).
Path finding - I managed to kill Rebecca, my leader was standing upon top of rock, with party member standing next to him. The game decided that there is a better place for the party member just below rock - he run below a rock where was a fire which immediatly killed him :). Have you noticed that AI find a way always through fire, mines and even next to Shrikers - of course instant kill.
Now I firstly met Alexander - he was at level 7. I managed to get to level 7 to have at least some chance - I came to Alexander and what a suprise? He is at level 8, with all the companions - So there were doing quests as well :)
There is a small problem - I do not have any quest open - so I can not get to level 8. Such a pity. Now on a hard level with tactician it means game end - because you can only defeat monsters one level below you and with chance 1:10 monsters on the same level.
Have you notice that water/ blood spills always towards you? Even if you are standing at much higher ground? That electiricified water does not hit an enemy standing 2 m from a electricity bulb whereas it hits you when you are standing 15m far?
A fire arrow will not blow up oil barrel if shotted directly at it, you must target ground next to it.
When you stun an opponent. You should have 100% probability of hit - of course in the game you can miss despite of enemy lying on ground helplessly.
This game simply sucks as do Larian.
|HI agree with you (but i wlould not say this game is bad even if i prefer the first one)
specially when u play this game in LAN ..... alot of non sense and bugs
wanted to make more playable for console ? coz for example no difference btwn bow and crossbow ...no need to learn skills for crafting ......feel like LARIAN studio making games for console first .............
