I hope this is nothing like Fallen Earth. They claim to have fps style melee combat, but it is really WoW combat without auto-attack. This doesn't require any additional skill and is actually more of an annoyance than anything. Ranged combat in Fallen Earth is just slightly better. The combat animations are not smooth and feel disconnected from the user input.
I really hope that Xsyon does a better job at this. Combat animations need to be as fluid and responsive as possible so it feels like player timing actually matters in a fight. I would sacrifice graphics quality for fluidity any day. Anyone else agree?
