If so, keep it up while baiting and pulling. Keep space between you and your foe and make note of his attack patterns. If it's one of those pesky shielded knights that you're fighting, just wait for the attack that leaves him vulnerable for a couple seconds, then quickly circle or roll behind him and perform a backstab. If you're brave, you can work in a charged RT attack as he's getting up, which should put him near death. That tactic, of course, works for most enemies in the game. Maybe it's because I've played a ton of Bloodborne, which is much speedier than Dark Souls, but I found the first 40% (approximately) of this game to be very, very smooth in terms of difficulty. There were challenges, no doubt, but I never felt as oppressed as I have in the other games. I think once you adapt to the speed and the flow of things, it'll be much easier. Well, until you get to some of the late-game bosses. Good luck if you plan to beat all of them without using summons! I managed to do it, but it took a lot of practice and patience. @crippyd: I will say, the first two areas, Cemetery of Ash and High Wall of Lothric, are the least interesting areas in the game. I enjoyed them, but I really started falling in love when I reached the Bloodborne-esque Undead Settlement. That's when the aesthetic, questlines, and level design really sucked me in. There are a few optional routes there and a couple NPC interactions that can impact things later in the game, so make sure you search thoroughly. Oh, and just so you guys aren't wondering: My review will go up tomorrow. I've been having a crazy week around here and just haven't had the time to get it done. Sorry for the wait!
