My opinion is not a positive one, so I’m not arguing that someone is wrong if they like this game. I had a hard time with this game. I put it down while I was 5 stages away from completing it. I get why people like it. I went back to play NiOh 2 and it just feels better. It’s not as floaty, enemies feel like they’ve had longer time spent on detail, and the campaign feels very robust. I see SoP and it feels watered down in a lot of ways. It’s using a similar formula to NiOh, but the character builds don’t feel all that important. I use whatever armor works, pick a weapon, and usually turn to magic because regular attacks just ghost through enemies. Something doesn’t feel right.
I wish they would have taken out the class system or at least tweaked it to the weapons. I’d also rather have one giant board of skills instead of deciding which class to throw all my points in. I haven’t made up my mind if I want to go back and finish it, but I wasn’t impressed by it. I fought a boss and it felt like a magic festival. I didn’t like actually hitting the boss with a weapon. This DLC looks like they’re making dodge based bosses. They’ve focused way too much on turning the boss fight into some Thunderdome.
