Yeah but they could have added a way for the moves to connect, like a combo system of sort. Right now you have left swing, right swing, upper swing and thrust with the sword. It really feels lacking and it looks weird on the battlefield as well. Everyone running around with the sword pointing clearly out what direction they are going to hit you at.
You ever actually seen Western sword fighting? You don’t connect your thrusts. You put everything into one swing, and hope it connects. If it does, you go again, until they’re dead or you are. If it doesn’t work, neither do you.
Eastern sword techniques are less about one offs and more for multiple connected swings, something which I’d love to see implemented somehow into this, with a new set of armies from Feudal Japan.
