To be fair, the scene is whited out for several seconds after he lands and before the decapitation. You can't really see the decapitation stroke. The second decapitation looks legit enough.

Let's flail about wildly and interpret that as combat mechanics worthy of a video preview!

You, clearly, have never leapt from above with the intent to decimate a foe in real life. It's all in the wrist.

It doesn’t look like there is a lock on feature like in Dark Souls/Witcher. It looks more like that terrible flailing about the Elder Scrolls tries to pass off as combat. I hope this improves, I originally thought the game looked promising.

Looks like they were inspired by Bethesda melee system. : shudders
There is little good to find here, this is disappointing. And Prey II looked so promising in comparison.
