    It's very good but was released probably a few months early.

    Confirming, combat is solid as fuck, pvp is exhilarating, feels meaty and responsive and there are lots of hitbox shenenigans in the best of ways.

    Now if only online wasnt being a piece of shit to me in the pve part, with chinese dickheads lagging all over and the whole game going wonky because of it it would be great. The matchmaking for the pop in overworld stuff is all over the place.

    When it works fine it's gloriously fun, with random pvp and coop both, but needs some serious fixing to get it working well all of the time instead of what's there now.

    Duels have mostly been fine, with one being bad on lag so far, but yeah, great fun.

    This is going to be utterly beautiful if they do just a tiny bit more work on it.

    Def worth its price though imo.

    No, buy it. It's dev's pet love project, if it flops you will never see updates it needs. And you are 100% guaranteed they will work on it if they won't have to worry about rent.

    If you don't mind having to restart the game now and then go for it.

    Nah its a great game as it is, just has a few rough edges that, as mentioned, will most probably get fixed if it doesn't flop.

    Keep in mind the huge lag seems to be there for people mostly outside the EU and us according to most reports so you'll be fine.

    keyboard is probably fine, but as with every third person action game of this sort controller just works better imo

    Does armor help outside of being attacked with weapons? I can't really tell other than being slowed down if there is a advantage to wearing it facing non sword or wargloved opponents.

    ~style~

    There is some basic facial animation in the game, but yeah it doubles as a method of saving dev time too i guess. It works though.

    Muh deck, far from optimized but works somehow...?
