O.k. Glad to hear that it wasn't just me. It also bothered me that the bosses didn't have a health bar. I was never sure which of my attacks were doing the most damage. Their armor would fall off but was that from a particular combo? A cumulative effect? I could never figure it out. But yeah, I didn't think it was a bad game. It had some unique aspects to it and I'd definitely recommend it to someone like DF who plays a lot of different stuff (especially for $15). For me though, the enjoyment to effort ratio wasn't large enough.
Tried Fable 2 with sort of the same result. It had a lot of stuff that sounded cool in theory (like being able to burp and fart) but was actually sort of dull in practice. The combat was super easy. So I gave that up and am back playing Demon's Souls.
