Talk about being utterly wrong, this is really superb on so many levels. Im only a few hours in but the art direction and visual flourishes are just epic. The landscapes are just fantastic.
Although only a few hours in and have a very basic moveset I can see this is geared towards you all feeling like you are training throughout the game getting better and better at your craft. I love the parry system and stand offs. its so well thought out and worth the price of admission alone. The patience precision game combat is wonderful.
So glad I gave it a go.
