FYI the autolock isn't on by default (on PC), you turn it on by pressing Tab.
KCD is a really good rpg game and absolutely worth the $15 price. That said it's from a really small studio and so comes with some issues. It is buggy, though they've done a good job getting rid of most of them. The game is very demanding, putting more demand on the cpu than a lot of games these days. So if it's been several years since you've done a major upgrade, you will have framerate issues. The one good thing about that is the graphics look great even on lower settings.
The game does have a few things that make it harder to get into. The combat is downright punishing at first. It will be for a time as you begin the game as someone who's never once been in combat and rightly sucks at it. Once you get your combat skills up, learn some combos, get some decent gear and learn master strike, you;ll turn the tables and smash through most fights. It's super rewarding to face off enemies that beat your ass early only to turn the tables with new skills and demolish them.
I also recommend some mods that ease some of the early difficulty. Mods like Unlimited Saving, Bow Reticle (makes hunting not an absolute chore), Instant Herb Picking (annoyance fix) and No Helm Vision (something a lot of people hate in the game). With these mods, an modern CPU & GPU, and some patience, you'll find this to be one of the best first person RPGs released in the last several years. It has a detailed story, meaningful choices to make, fantastic
DLC, heaping gobs of immersion, and crazy depth.
The studio has some real talent, and I am happy to see the game sold quite well and was very popular - enough for them to release several high quality DLC. That means more money to spend on developing their next game, and likely a lot more interest from publishers and thus funding.
Addendum: For those who have the game and find the early game too brutal. A good way to ease this is to get some quality armor. One of the best ways I've found is to get your stealth skill up by wearing light or no armor and doing some sneaking & hunting (the hunting camp you go to with Hans in one of his early quests is a great spot to hunt later). Once you get that to a reasonable level, either buy or use alchemy and make some basic poison. Find a Cuman camp and late at night (past midnight), sneak around - avoid the guy wandering around - and poison their food. The basic poison is weak, so put several vials in their cauldron. Then go wait, come back around noon and they'll all be dead. Not only is this a great way to get some coin by selling all their gear, but you can repair the best of it and wear it. Do this once or twice and you'll have substantially better armor and so you won't go down in 2-3 hits in combat anymore. This comment was edited on Jun 20, 2020, 12:39.
