As someone who beta-tested this, it certainly still needs some work (but hey, it is the initial beta release, so of course it does)!

My settings might be wonky, but the text is difficult to read right now, even set to "large" in the menu. The map is a bit unintuitive to navigate properly and the camera, even when adjusted, feels a bit "off" for lack of a better word.

The combat is set at a nice level where you are properly challenged, unless you go for a completely combat-centric build in which case it will be a cakewalk (but you'll miss out on a lot of sidegoodies).

There are bugs galore, mostly happening when you do stuff "out of sequence" for this constricted beta build, like trying to call into the ranger center before being given the prompt from the center after arriving at the main map for the first time. That can lock the game up, for instance. Or trying to loot bodies after canceling a loot attempt suddenly making some bodies impossible to loot, at least in random encounters.

There are a small number of typos. Some of the UI still needs tweaking, like how sorting through your inventory for stuff is such a chore.

Despite these issues I'm having a lot of fun with the game. Even as someone who didn't play the original for more than a few minutes before growing frustrated.
