Just beat the main campaign.
I started with keyboard & mouse, but found the camera controls to be sub-par. Then I switched to the Steam Controller. Played better that way.
Overall, most of the camera issues don't come from the control method, so much as that the game is trying to both control my camera on its own, as well as allow me to move it myself. Gets really annoying.

I sucked at parrying, but was great at dodging, so used that up until Sam, where somehow--BAM, mastered parrying. Great! From that point on, parrying seemed like a requirement! Before then, dodging worked in every situation, as it grants you invincibility frames.
In most games, I'm excellent at blocking and dodging. Not sure what it is about the timing in this one that threw me off, 'cuz now that I've learned it, it's just muscle memory.

Precise aiming in blade mode was not great with a Steam Controller, as it seemed that Raiden would attack once the "right stick" is released. In this case, that simply meant not moving my thumb, so unless I was in constant motion, he'd attack. This made the last boss fight nearly impossible... so I placed down my controller and used my keyboard & mouse every time I had to slice at the rubble
Genius!
Lucky the game allowed for a seamless transition like that, no need to open any menus.

Overall, the game is very easy, even though I never felt that I was "good" at it. It's okay. I can't imagine ever replaying it. I'd be up for a sequel though, if it delivered enough improvements.
Not marking as an opinion because these are just my initial thoughts after beating.
I'll play the DLC soon enough.

Retro Wolf What difficulty did you play it on? Theres a better sense of challenge on very hard and revengeance mode. Normal and hard are a cakewalk.

Demi Axersia Yes, but the PC is a neutral platform, and the 360 controller officially supports it with its own API and everything. It's really no different from seeing the Unreal logo pop up when you boot up a game.

rockshard PhD "PC is a neutral platform" I know, right? If I was a PC gamer I'd be proud of the fact and would have liked to enjoy having an identity separate from either Sony, MS, or Nintendo. I no longer have that once Xbox becomes the official controller of the PC. Not to mention Alienware bundling systems with actual first party Xbox controllers, as if to drive the point home.

Demi Axersia In all fairness, what OS are you using for gaming? That's right, Microsoft Windows. No, don't lie, you're not using Linux.

This game does dangerous things to my otherwise perfect blood pressure. ETA: Like, I genuinely have barely been enjoying this game beyond the first chapter (or was it a prologue?). I like the boss fights but everything else is irritating as hell. idk if I'll finish it.

Giga Pudding It doesn't really have a difficulty curve. After the Prologue, the game goes: ''well, hopefully you've learned the ins and outs of the combat, because shit is about to get real REAL soon and there will be no holding hands''. It takes time to adjust to its parrying mechanics that control-wise are unlike anything I've ever played, but once you get into that state of mind the game becomes a joy to play and easy to cheese through. I was infuriated with it on 2 boss fights (still was getting to grips with the mechanics), but on NG+ I totally cheesed through it and enjoyed it even more. Dat feeling of satisfaction...

This game might not last with me long. I'm terrible at this parrying stuff.

Robert Berlin I can't imagine that anyone managed to instantly get a hang of the parrying system when they played Revengeance for the first time so don't give up just yet. It is definitely worth it to keep trying until you get a hang of it because when you can fully grasp the parrying it is one of the most satisfying combat mechanics that I can think of.

I think this will be up next after Lost Odyssey. Gonna need something quick and brainless after a 100+ hour, tough as nails JRPG.

Giga Pudding Joke's on you! You'll end up replying it over and over until you crack the 200h mark!

Stephanie Taylor Once I finish it! I'm going for all the achievements so that's why it's taking me a while. Might have been able to finish it this weekend if it hadn't been for Anime Boston.
