More of the same, but is that so bad?
Good point - there is so much open to do and so many places to wander that you can spend hours just fighting. This is great when I just want to do a "dungeon crawl" or stock up on items or money. I can still go wander so I still hop back on just for an occasional hack-n-slash.
Bad point - there is only so much random generation. The dungeons do get a little bit repetitive. The overall story was a bit of a let down, almost too easy when I finally reached the end. Maybe that huge dungeon at the end was supposed to be part of the final boss battle feeling, but at the end of it I just wanted it over.
