To be honest I'm actualy enjoying them as it provides something fresh for the game other than just blasting everything out with your maxed out gear.
While at it, here are a few rants:
- The complete random distribution of weapons and PA's, sometimes the PA's do not match the weapon you are carrying. This is very problematic if you are going in for soloing the challenge without group.
- The complete randomness of the attack patterns of the enemies, I know you should watch out and time your dodges, parry and generaly play safe without risking, but sometimes the game just pull out complete bullshit moments which cost you your VR energy because the game pulled random "Whoopsie doopsie random XD moments" that you could do nothing to avoid it; This includes like getting hit mid-dodge where I should not have been hit in the first place since I was under DODGE, dodge means DODGING the damage not TAKING IT. The last bit was where the enemy should have stunned from my, but it just magicaly pulls out attack on you when it is stunned and kills you instantly without any time to react, which is complete bullshit moment that generaly makes the experience really annoying and just made me rage quit.
- in CHALLENGE: Decision at the starting mission 1, there is not enough VR bottles to pick to restore your VR energy, sometimes you just ran out of VR energy too quickly because you couldn't kill the boss in time because you do not deal enough damage with those weak weapons even if you avoided dying and made sure to exploit all the enemy weak spots for extra damage.
