The attribute system ... I will agree that they really made the stats boring. As to how to fix it, that's a big amount of debate.

The memory system isn't bad in and of itself. Many games only give you a limited number of "slots" for skills, which encourages you to think about which skills you want to actively use. Perhaps it could stand for some tweaks and adjustments, but that's ANY system.

The AP limit is a mixed bag of good and bad at the same time. Having a limited pool of points means you have to think about your actions and plan things out. I don't see this as a bad thing at all.

The round robin for initiative ... that I will agree was poorly thought out.

AI always cheats. Always. In every game. They always seem to know when one of your characters is weak. The AI in this game is actually better than AI I've seen in other games. I think the issue is more that they made Loremaster too powerful for inspecting enemies. If you want to suss out an enemy's weakness, it should be a skill that takes TIME in combat.

There being no Physical Resistance while there is Magic Resist is actually quite normal for games. Usually because Magic attacks are a lot stronger and you're encouraged to take advantage of low resistances. So its a mixed bag of good and bad at the same time.

I can't comment on money making or Source as I've only played the early part of the game, where I expect that money is going to be brutally hard to get hold of. And since I've only played the early part, I haven't gained access to source abilities yet. I've just been busy with other games and the like.

Overall, I've been enjoying the game. It's not horrible or broken. The areas where there ARE issues, there are mods or the devs have actually been working on fixing them. Some of the things modded should have been fixed before launch, but that's water under the bridge.

Memory system encouraging "thinking" is a falacy just like when people say the armor mechanic encourages "tactics", you know what people do when they don't have a skill equipped for the fight?, they reload and put the skill in the memory slot... there goes your thinking and your whatever, it is just crap.

Ap limit is just bad too, you will end up using the same stuff over and over and over again and you never feel progression in this manner making combat essentially the same from start to finish.

Youa re wrong on Phsycal too because armor it is used to mitigate physical attacks and in this game there is no armor in fact there is magical armor and resitances on top of that, magic is completely over nerfed in this game while psysical attackers get a free pass, the best party you can build in this game is full physical people.

Making money is terrible but you will see, and Source you will agree too when you find out that skills that were normally used in the first game now require source, remember meteor shower or any of those powerful magics?, they now requiere source, enjoy.
