At first I really loved the game, going back and forth to Naraku, and then elsewhere as more of the world opened up. But I have to say, wandering the world with no idea where to go, and being constantly bogged by random battles is getting tired. The game hasn't done a good job of giving me an idea of where to go, and I don't feel like I have a good sense of direction or motivation to really move forward.
I killed the slime demon thing, and I'm across the river. I found the old base for the Counter Demon Force, and now it just says find the Samurai and activate terminals. But I've been wandering for a while with no idea what to do.
Before everyone dives on top of me, let me be clear: I'm not saying this is a bad game, or that the lack of a direction is a bad design choice. It's just something that I don't really enjoy, and that's my preference as a gamer. My question to you SMTIV fans is: should I continue? If it's going to be a constant stream of not really knowing where to go and randomly exploring, I'm wondering if I would be better served with other games.
