Ok, this could potentially be an unpopular opinion, I'm not actually sure, but I'm sure you'll let me know.
The gameplay is pretty boring.
The environments. Mind-blowing. Breathtaking. The world is amazing. Definite Xenoblade X/BOTW vibes. The mobility and traversal of that world, even better. Really excited for other biomes.
The gameplay, in my opinion, feels half baked. Although you get the initial impression that the combat has been re-worked and it feels new and because it's new, it's kind of exciting, but after playing for a while...I'm sorry but this feels almost as basic as PSO Episode I & 2, but with parrying/dodging.
Each weapon has 3 arts, count 'em, 3. There is so little variety in the combat flow for every single class in the game, and multi weapon doesn't really fix this because of the damage reduction to non-main class weapons and of course, the lack of being able to really tailor your augments to two things at once with the exception of a couple augment series' that target either 2 different potencies or is potency universal.
It means that no matter what class you play, after a few hours you will find out what does the most damage in which situation, and you will be spamming...the same exact PA over, and over, and over, and over. In some cases, some weapons or PAs are straight up garbage or inferior to other options, narrowing the pool further. I play hunter, so tell me why I would ever equip a Partizan when a Sword does everything it does 10x better? I multi-wepped a Wirelance in to my main weapon for gap closing and air mobility, but why would I ever use any of those trash PAs?
So the end result?
I spam the spinny one for AOE, I spam the upper-cut one for lucky crit chains and more isolated hit-zone damage, and I spam the anime-cleave for down phases.
It's...fun for a little while, but it has gotten pretty rote, very fast. Add to that there's pretty much no content other than doing the dailies every day to get extra cubes for future potential lvl4s...and yeah, I'm pretty disappointed with how barebones this game feels. It sure feels like there's a lot of things to spend money on though...
(For the record I'm at 1450+ BP)
Which is sad because it's a beautiful game and feels good to play, there's just...not enough of it.
I know that it's a new game, and they're gonna make more content, yada yada, I get it, I'm just adding to the sentiment that I think all games should be released as more full experiences, instead of this whole trend of releasing at the absolute barest of bones, and then promise that it's gonna get better, oh boy, just you wait!
