The beginning of this game is extremely brutal on Insane.
In episode 3, Anne-Claire is there to sort of carry you until you get your class tokens, which opens up some variety/strategy and gives you some breathing room.

Seems like in this one, though, you don't have that luxury. I got smashed pretty consistently all through chapter 1 (Especially in the Ice Cream Cave), though I imagine having a third party member will relieve the pressure immensely.

Did anyone else have this experience on an Insane playthrough? Or do I just suck more than I thought?

The beginning of the game on Insane is one of the hardest parts since you don't have a full party and your options for strategies are limited. Timely use of the Defend command is invaluable.

I'm just a bit through an Insane playthrough and I honestly have to agree. It tends to boil down to a puzzle game of sorts, trying to find the precise sequence of moves to proceed.

Its kinda the reason I think..since it is called 'Insane'..

Yep, though the things you are more or less forced to learn in that early part of the game are very useful later on as well. I felt like I went through the entire game on normal without ever understanding it, once I started on Insane.

Zeboyd games all have a really well fleshed out system and I've barely gotten into 3+4 but the others had "less" but still took a lot of strategy beyond how they appear. Old school feel/look but really unique systems.
