Sounds good. That's the way combat should be in every single-player RPG. Every multiplayer RPG, too, for that matter. How many fans of old school tabletop gaming would have given D&D more than a passing glance if all there was to do was blindly steamroll your way through locations, gather up the loot, and listen to a pimply dork attempting to be a world-class storyteller? It was the tactical combat that made all that other stuff worthwhile. This is actually the one thing I've heard about this game that sounds promising, but I don't have much interest in learning all the ins and outs of a brutally difficult combat system just to beat a game in 10 hours that took 10 years to develop.
