Indeed. I'm only at the first chapter myself too, but so far I'm having a blast. Sure, Blackguards is missing exploration and almost everything else not directly related to combat, and as such is not for those who don't like combat in their CRPGs, but for the rest of us it's pure tactical combat bliss. I much rather play through Blackguards' hand-crafted encounters (no matter even if "gimmicky" at times) than suffer through a nearly endless stream of trash mobs so common in e.g. Bioware's more recent CRPGs.
