I'm considering buying this game but there are a couple things I would like to know before i get it. First, do I have to use the tactical view or can i get through the game and still enjoy it without it? I never really liked controlling more than one character or telling others what to do. I would also like to know if there is an option to let my companions auto-level themselves and their abilities/weapons/armor etc. I just want to focus on my character and pour all of my attention into him or her. So is this a viable option or will I just get steamrolled come late-game content?
