Very few games can get me to restart after 15+ hours in - and it's a great sign.
In any case, after restarting - I chose hard difficulty. I didn't die a SINGLE time during the prologue - where I died constantly on medium the first time.
THAT is how a great combat system works. You learn from your mistakes, and you master it eventually. I'm very comfortable with it now.
It's a fantastic system, really.
