Yeah, I’m feeling that. It’s nowhere near as bad as Kingdom Hearts 3, where walking two steps forward rewards you with a half an hour cutscene, but it does feel like the action isn’t as important.I’m about 70% through. It is good but it just reminds me how much the gameplay is secondary to the story.
Just remember you’re meant to die, so don’t get discouraged. After a few runs you will understand the bosses better, find your favorite weapon and the story is very enjoyable.
