Not being the core focus is no reason for half assing something. It's stiff and awkward and there's no real excuse.
It's not that the combat is half-assed, it's INTENTIONALLY clumbsy and even unreliable. In the series, Garret has always been terrible in combat, you usually died if you found yourself fighting more than one enemy at a time. It's not like Metal Gear or Assassin's Creed where you have combat skills to get you out of a situation where you're cornered. In the Thief series, if you were cornered, you were ****ed. I honestly don't know what the developer there was talking about when he said that "you can play as you want" when they've also said that they were trying to stick true to the old formula that you couldn't survive in a combative playstyle.
Now what did I think about it? Basic, with maybe slightly more depth than Skyrim, but most likely the same: block, hit, repeat. Seeing that, I'm actually a little more excited because I know I'll be screwed if I get spotted, instead of just wanting to stay stealthy for achievement's sake.

That video just looks like a not as polished Dishonored.
