if you are a souls crackhead there is a good chance you wont like it at all. the combat is…underwhelming to say the least. plays like a slower version of a arkham batman game. Your character gets so overpowered later your barely ever have to heal because certain skills and mechanics are OP. Not in a good way, though. the difficulty is pretty inconsistent. At the start of the game you will struggle to defeat hard enemies and get even a scrape of money.
All that said and done, if you want to play a really great RPG game and dont mind doing mass of sidequests, you will like it. Great game with greta polish, will easyly push you over 100 hours playtime. has a tendency to get somewhat boring after that though.
I recommend you buy Witcher 2 for testing purposes next time a seasonal or weekend sale is around, those are cheap for about 2,50 Dollars. Should be enough for you to judge if you like the combat system.
