I have a general idea of the differences in combat between the PS3 version and the PC version. But the more I get into the PS3 game, the more I get the feeling the differences are bigger than I thought. For instance, while watching a video of PC gameplay I noticed that you can position your players in very specific places and target specific enemies or areas. I haven't figured out how to do this in the PS3 version. Am I just missing that?
Overall, while I LOVE this game, I feel that the battle menu leaves a lot to be desired. For example, when you open the radial menu to choose a talent/spell, there is no name of the talent/spell or mana/stamina requirement. Sure you can dig deeper and get it. But think back to the Final Fantasy games that told you the name and what the cost to use was right in the top menu. Much easier to use. I can't remember all these little icons and what they represent--they are all very simialar (well. some anyway). Anyway, I think they could tighten up the menus the next time around (some are hard to read too) and make it better. But I've heard the PC layout it better.
Anyone played both?
Sort of a minor off topic thing, I hear that the PC is really boring. Some of the battles you come across are difficult, no doubt, but I hear on the PC almost all the battles are pretty brutal. I like the PS3 version better because there is more of a balance between action and strategy, unlike KOTOR which I have played and didn't like.
the battles on the PC are not brutal. the PC just has more enemies on screen, but you have much better control over the battle field thanx to the isometric camera.
to the OP: you know you can hit square when you point at a certain talent and it will tell you it's name, a description and mana/stamina cost.
I've played both and I can't really say the interface is better for the PC. sure it looks easier at first glance but I think the PS3 interface works pretty good for console. also, you have to open the spell book for any non hot-keyed talent/spell on the PC which is really annoying especialy for mages cause they have so many spells to choose from.
