My Grudge with POR 2 is not, that the Combat is turnbased… the Combat is just horrible slow… i.e. you have to fight 12 Zombies, and while they take their turns to walk to you in slowmotion, you might want to read a book or two… oh and around the corner are 20 Zombies more…

It doesn't matter to me, if the combat is turnbased or realtime… it has to be good. There are good turnbased Combat-Engines (Temple of Elemental Evil) and good Realtime-Combat (i.e. Baldur's Gate - at least in some battles - or World of Warcraft). While it is nice for me to develop tactics in my own time, Realtime-Combat can create a feeling of urgency and danger, while there are still enough possiblities to use tactics.

The Germans are a cruel race. Their operas last for six hours and they have no word for "fluffy".
