So I just started playing THE WITCHER II, which is pretty much the best RPG I've played since DRAGON AGE : ORIGINS. However, I found the combat to be a bit lackluster.
I'm playing the game in the 'Dark' difficulty setting (the highest setting) and yeah, the enemies hit very hard, but they're dumbasses, really.
Sometimes they will just stand there doing nothing, others they will get stuck with each other. Archers will continue to shoot their arrows in a pattern regardless if you're in their sights or not, and a whole lot of lame stuff like this that makes the game feel second-rate in this aspect.
I also hate how you can't walk backwards if you lock on an enemy.
The game is great in storyline and character interaction, but the fighting and enemy A.I. plain sucks.
