bradu Posted April 12, 2015 Share Posted April 12, 2015 I really liked this game at the start, but I quickly found that I had a hard time getting into it. I played for like an hour 2 or 3 times, never really got sucked in to where I wnted to keep playing and playing. Anyway, I think I finally figured out what it is that's keeping me from getting into it. I almost feel like it's too complicated for me, like I'm missing out on really basic stuff about combat that's making the game difficult for me. I rolled up a Druid. Thought it would be cool to be able to change into an animal. But I start out the game with like 10 different AoE spells, and they all seem essentially the same with slight differences. I never know when to use which spell. It reminds me a little bit of when I first got BG2 and hadn't played BG1 in a long time. I open up the game and I have this party of 6 and the spellcasters have like 30 spells, and everyone's got tons of different abilities, and it was all too much! I was like "whatever happened to the days of just doing Magic Missile if you need to hit 1 target, sleep if you need to hit a group?" The other thing that's getting me is that I seem to waste 1-2 spells at the start of every battle. I sneak around, come across a mob, and I've got the jump on them! I set off a couple of spells....and then the bad guys come running up and engage me and my spells miss them! What am I supposed to do, just wait til they engage before I set up my spells, giving them the initiative? And last, and this one is all my own fault and just personal preference....I'm not a huge fan of too much dialogue/story in games. I realize that's what most people love about this game. But I find myself just trying to click through the dialogue so I can get on to fighting. My favorite part about RPG games is always the loot, that chance that the next mob or treasure chest has a cool magic item or a weapon/armor upgrade for me. Anyway, I want to give it a real go. Maybe I need to start over with a more straightforward fighter. Or, my personal favorite, a rogue. I thought I'd try a non-Rogue for once but maybe that was my mistake. I'll end up with spellcasters in the party anyway. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
