Geez, I'm already getting burned out of DQ Swords. I'm got about 20 hours so far. I can't believe how bad the controls are when trying to make accurate slashes in diagonal directions. I've been reading some forums on the game and some folks even suggest wearing a wrist brace to keep from moving your wrist too much. It's pretty outrageous. The other thing I can't believe is how difficult some of the 'bonus' bosses are at the end of the game. Some seriously extreme difficulty. Spend most of the time just healing yourself and trying to block crazy attack patterns in order to win. I hope not a whole lot of this stuff gets put into Dragon Quest X.
