Hehe, nah, it's not that bad, it just seems incomprehensible to me that a developer doesn't see this coming. I mean, the combat system is a lot of fun in one vs one battles, but it becomes useless to the player in battles vs multiple opponents. You can only block one of the attackers, so the other ones will simply hit you.
The solution is then to run around like a chicken and trying to get some hits in.
However, the mission I'm playing now puts you in VERY SMALL locations where you're fighting. So you CAN'T run around.
So how exactly are you supposed to defeat SIX demons? Well, I guess by swallowing 80000 potions of heal or so.
It's just completely retarded.
