Bitching for the sake of bitching. The combat is fun when you get used to chaining and dodging and just create a combo of healing/chain pressens to heal quickly. I think I've only ever had issues with the camera a couple of times in my three playthroughs.
I started it (and finished it) on hard (Memory Hunter) and found it , well, hard. However, you'll only need to replay a few key fights a few times until you figure out the best combo system to use. The checkpoints are pretty forgiving as well.
The story was a bit convoluted but overall still pretty intriguing. The remix scenes were definitely interesting and new.
This game is worth a rent, but don't expect to get all of the achievements on your first playthrough on Hard.
