Recently I got the the opportunity to play this game at a friend's house. I've been interested in the series since the release of BL1, but was always hesitant to get it. But now that I've played the first hour or so and the game got me hooked. I have a few questions, mainly regarding the combat and enemies.
I generally like loot-driven games. I played through Diablo 3 around three times -- in spite of the monotonous combat -- because of the loot and consistent progression. So, here is my concern, I'm aware of the fact that the game starts slow, but does the combat gets significantly better?
I'm one of the few who really enjoyed BioShock Infinite (and the original for that matter). I thought it had a good balance between depth and breadth; I was able to tackle situations in creative ways, which made the gameplay immensely satisfying. It's a bit of bummer that you only get one ability per class, but I know that the game is reasonably varied (in terms of equipment, weapons and environments?), but how deep and engaging is the combat system? Does the combat have any tactical elements?
Finally, how's the enemy variety? Do all enemies behave the same, or do you have to rethink how you tackle each scenario based on the combination of enemies you encounter?
This doesn't really bother me that much, but do all weapons sound like toy guns? I feel like they fall a bit flat, sound-wise, kind of like GTA IV.
Anyhow, thanks in advance.
