At first I wasn't sure if it was Zelda-style where the game stylishly freezes for a millisecond when you strike something, or if it was just a bad framerate, but now I'm pretty sure it's a mix of both.
It's really weird and, imo, kinda jarring. I think I'm done with this title.
I don't mean to totally bash the game. The music is great and the look of the game is fantastic. The combat seems to have a fair bit of depth and hits feel good, but the slowdown is just really bugging me.
Does it get any better? =/
