Well I got the constant PC crashes to go away with some help from the internet (i could find no helpful advice from any official forum though) and I have had a chance to play some more.
Great story and exploration. I love just wandering around and finding stuff in nooks and crannies. I like the War Room concept aswell, reminds me of the Suikoden base. I wish more games would add a Strategic layer. Tactics Ogre or Fire Emblem where your long term choices have effects.
On the down side I still think the combat is atrocious. I see they have removed the Tactics options, dumbed down character growth and skill trees. In any serious fight im having trouble getting the characters to do what i want and its frustrating. I actually think Dragon Age 2 for all its faults had a better combat system.
I'm going to reduce the difficulty to normal and see if i get on better with real time battles, play as an action game. Are most people playing this on PS4?
