Enemy stats were also ridiculous, but the underlying core gameplay was really solid.

Not in my experience. I've found combat in PK works fairly well the first two chapters, but after that it kind of falls apart. There are spells & abilities which can just destroy enemies with ease; initially it was sneak attack on ray spells, now it is kineticist's deadly earth. And because the difficulty relies just on stat increases, the counter to that is basically just raising your spell dc etc. as much as you can.
