@mupod: I believe I spent most of Saturday playing this and yeah its nice being ultra mobile. Big fan of wall running and how vines are now just sideways ground surface for you and the dog. I'm not sure how many areas are in this game. They are super compact and with the dog it takes no time getting from one end of the map to the other. Before a monster running away used to be a good time to heal, get your gear ready and stamina up before running after the fleeing monster. Now I find myself getting to a monster retreat point before a flying monsters gets a chance to land and rest. Hopefully there's a good mix of maps in this one.
