Ah, the joys of saber combat
Yes, that's right. I said joys.
I have spent an inordinate amount of time [playing this game, ever since it came out. I ignored the little problems with the first version because I enjoyed playing it. I ignored the little flaws in the second version because I enjoyed playing it. Recently, I was getting somewhat jaded with it. tired of entering a server and finding everyone using blue and running backwards, or just generally not having fun (due to not feeling enthusiastic).
The my girlfriend bought Morrowind. It's a fine game. A pretty game. It's fun to play, hopelessly addictive. At yet the combat lacks something. I kept wanting to run to one side and hammer a heavy blow into the back of my opponent as I ran past. I wanted to kick them in the face and cut them as they got up. I even wanted to be able to block their blows with my sword.
Could I? Could I hell. Go play Morrowind. It's a beautiful game, and well worth the money. Try the sword fighting system (it's typical fantasy CRPG - press mouse button, swing sword. Repeat). Then play JK2 and NEVER complain about the flaws in the saber combat again. Because no matter how bad you think it is, it's STILL BETTER THAN THE ALTERNATIVE!
Ah well. This rant was brought to you by someone who likes the saber combat, and wishes more companies would use that style for their games.
