I just finished the game myself, and I disagree with most of what he said.
1: "SAving isn't automatic" So he says after walking over an auto save.
2: combat is shallow: Actually its alot deeper then he claims. there is alot more you can do then (on PC) left click,rightclick left, left,left, right. Also you can chain the different combos together to mix things up a bit. Certain enemies (admittedly, not many) require different tactics like parrying and counter attack, a few enemies might STILL damage you even when you successfully parry. Some enemies parry back (primarily Gaius' standard soldiers).
3: Story flaws: I find the characters are pretty likable and amusing, There are quite a few moments that are really emotional, and a few surprises that could catch you off guard.
There are many more things he missed but This game is amazing and is even more amazing when it was made by ONE GUY outside of the brilliant soundtrack and fun voice acting.
