I really enjoy this game, decent combat, an actual story, and cool design. However, there are some major issues.
First off are the mechanics through which you receive gear. I am convinced that it is rigged against you, even more so than normal loot boxes. Up to near the end of chapter 2, i was getting lots of gear, and have even gotten 5 or 6 legendaries. However, I have hit a wall against Xiang Tzu, and loot boxes simply aren’t giving me weapons. I’ve been using the same common scimitars all of level 5, and I have not received any rare weapons. The only one I have received is for level 6, and I have received it about 8 times. For other gear, I keep getting the same 2 common helmets, and 3 common armor, although I already have legendary armor. I simply cannot do anything without paying, because Xiang Tzu’s combos are insane.
The second issue is the way AI is set up. The issue is not that the AI is good, but that it is set up with unrealistic speed. Even when button mashing, it is simply impossible for a human to loop together combos as effectively as the AI. I can be hitting an AI, and in the middle of a 5 combo attack, they kick me at the speed of light, and get a 13 combo chain, constantly shocking me. Kicking is slow as hell for us, but the AI use it to break attacks. Simply unfair.
