5 Tornado Spins for gameplay! 5 Slunk Nuggets for content! 5 Bulletproof Clothes for gear! 5 Grotesque Fungi for consumables! 5 Kidney Jabs for the narrative!! Yes, somehow I grew fond of Vadim and his incomprehensible elocution.
Yes it is crazy hard: need to be strategic about it. If you can hold off spending you cash till very near the end, you can afford a lot more of the better gear. Also I try to hold off spending skill points until I know I need a particular skill... no take-backsies means you need to be certain it was a wise spend ;) That said, with the right build (and a Chapter 1 save) is just possible to earn flawless victories... just takes a while.
What upgrades you choose is important. This is possibly one of the few limitations: you are limited on skill points AND zloteks AND items: this kind means if you don't pick certain skills, you'll make the experience much harder: e.g. heal skill usage is unlimited, but if you rely on slunk nuggets, you're gonna run out quick - which means it is hard to play the game AND try out all the skills. I would have love to try out Spin Slash... but that's a chunk of SP to unlock a skill that there never seems an opportunity to use (because if a character is swarmed, it's usually light's out!!) I suppose that's something to look forward to in future chapters ;)
THANK YOU for the ability to use the save from Chapter 1: this meant I could spend time actually hitting enemies, rather than throwing objects & dead bodies at them... (how I got through Chapter 1) I imagine if you haven't got a Chapter 1 save, you'll need to use this strategy to survive. Face it: if you want to enjoy this game, then you really need a Chapter 1 save!!
PERFECT? PRETTY DAMN CLOSE!!!!!
