3 big problems with this game from a newbie's point of view
1. Very little is explained to you what I've been able to tell. It was ages before I realised I had a disease on me, and had to google how to cure it.
2. Lost track of how many times I have had to reload my save because I was stuck in the scenery whilst exploring and couldn't get out.
3. The game overlooks one major aspect of rpgs: the enemies level. Why the hell doesn't the game tell you what level the enemies are? OK, you could say its obvious if the enemy is stronger than you, but how do you know when you'll be ready to reattempt a quest without being able to compare levels? And I mean besides returning over and over again through trial and error.
Overall it seems to me like you are supposed to know a lot about this game before you even play it.
