I found that the controls were somewhat unresponsive and there's no real point in having the slow attack because that's all it is: slow. There's almost no real difference between the two other than speed so it seems like a waste. And the time it takes to fall into your blocking stance is so long that it only seems work on archers, and even then only if you stay down, because by the time your character gets back up, another arrow is coming. Other than that it was a pretty fun game. I like the addition of mounted combat and how your characters now use thier weapons rather than their fists.
