Played a couple hours, almost cleared the tutorial area. Performance is spotty and the camera control is not great, in particular the sloooow de/acceleration when changing direction and tendency to suddenly snap to greater angles.
But otherwise seems decent enough. Combat is competent (weird long-distance teleporty kicks notwithstanding). Voice acting is pretty good and the quests seem well designed.
Yeah I prefer the JRPG approach to this one, where everyone you can talk to has something of value even if not directly quest-related, like game tips, rumours, or big-picture backstory/lore. And then indicate whether you’ve already heard it, so you don’t click again.
