Yes I played the first one. Its trash.
The combat is garbage, the AI is garbage. Literally every boss fight is the same. All you do is wait for one of 3 attacks, press a button to roll out the way, and then attack.
Also PC support was beyond horrendous when I played it 2 years ago. It would literally give you tutorials with xbox controller buttons lmao, so you wouldn't actually know which keys to press on a keyboard. Terrible and lazy programming.
