Well I finally got around to playing more of it, and it's really putting a sour taste in my mouth now. I had a great first impression, but now I'm getting frustrated because most of the difficult bits of the DLC rely HEAVILY on simply outnumbering you. It's no fun to climb down a ladder and immediately be forced to fight 3 guys who charge you. The worst bit so far would have to be this room where you have to fall through a trap door and fight 5~ guys in this pit. Their movements are so predictable and easy to dodge, but when you're forced against so many, inevitably they'll go off your limited camera and land a hit on you that you couldn't see coming. Whenever I die, I just groan and let out a tired sigh because I have to go through so many tedious sections all over again.
And what is with these DLCs and having the bosses be SO far away? The first DLC had them back to back at the end, and I feel like this is going to be a repeat of that. I want to fight these bosses man, they HAVE to be better than slugging through dozens of enemies at a time, right?
The main boss is literally 10 seconds away from the Bonfire. If you have issues with fighting 3 guys at the same time I don't know what to tell you because you are essentially saying you'd prefer to fight 1-2 guys. You know Bloodborne is going to throw 5+ enemies at you regularly right?
Like someone else said, I mean the bosses are so far from the beginning of the DLC. I've been playing for more than two hours and haven't come across a single one yet.
And yes, I'd HIGHLY prefer to fight 1-2 guys at a time with a more complex move set than "pulls arm back for a second and then swing giant sword". They know they created such a predictable and boring AI for the enemies, so they compensate for it by - like I said - putting in a LOT of them that they become a hassle. So far a fight has rarely felt fair or fun for me. Plus when you're up against so many, the fight basically degrades to a waiting game, where you just have to wait for an opening since there's so many of them attacking at different times.
Also, while I'm not getting Bloodborne since I don't have a PS4 nor do I intend to get one for a long while, I have confidence that Miyazaki will make it more similar to the first Dark Souls and Demon's Souls, since he's back to being the director again.
And a bit off topic, but was magic nerfed prior to this DLC? I feel like my Soul Spears are taking MUCH longer to cast now.
I will say that the bosses will probably be what you are looking for.
