Good combat and setting. But very steep, harsh, and bland.
It uses the area well, but it could be fleshed out narratively, since it was already interesting, but not elaborated on.
Making better distinction between areas, writing-wise, thematically or visually/graphically would help a lot.
Battles alone are not very interesting, but it is appealing if you are into grinding.
All those tips you wrote in the thread would be better off littered about in the actual game (or download page!), and it would be mega-useful.
