This is one of those games that always seems to come up in online conversations over the years: how great it is, how deep the mechanics are etc etc. Anyway, this is the first time I’ve had a really good crack at the series, and, boy, this one was great fun. It doesn’t hurt that it looks amazing, the combat is weighty and the monsters are great.
It’s initially incomprehensible but give it a few hours and all that fades away and you’ll know where to upgrade your weapons and where to buy/craft health potions. That’s all you need really.
I solo’ed most of it but got some randos in for a few final fights and, frankly? I wish I’d gone that route earlier cause it felt like how it should be played: with 2-3 friends each specialising with different weapons and just going to town on a massive beast.
