I'm astonished that anyone can consider this anything other than a turd.
It's needless, almost indulgently, obtuse to the point that I feel like screaming. I've been playing games for at least 35 years. How can I not work this one out? Is it me (I doubt it)?
I'm not talking about the "difficulty". I'm talking about the opaque menus and inventory system. I can handle a challenge, but I'm not sure that it should be a challenge to equip a weapon.
After 30 minutes of trying to equip a gun and sword, I gave up. I do not have the time to fight such poor design. If it is this unintuitive in the opening moments then, frankly, I will struggle to actually play the game when the time comes.
Life is too short for a UI that punishes a player. Learning a game can be a challenge, but playing a game should be intuitive.
This is just broken. It's so difficult I can't even reach an opponent.
