I have found the new price very tempting and I'm considering of buying it but I believe that the only thing that you are doing is fight, fight, fight and unfortunately in a place where you cannot control the character freely as you wish. Can someone explain to me? I don't mind for great graphics, I'm interested more in gameplay.
IBII has much more depth than the original. Three different distinct weapon types, make sure you always have options going into a battle. They're also pretty strategic (for example, it's much easier to defeat the two-handed weapon wielding enemies with the dual-wield setup). In addition, the looting system has been expanded so there's a lot more of everything, plus gems to upgrade all your items with. There's atleast 50 different enemies, prob more now after three updates, which is up from about 10 or so in the original. Plus, IBII enemies have about 5 different types (sword and shield, dual wield, two handed, staff, giant), as opposed to 2 in the original. This makes a huge difference because it's no longer possible to just memorize the enemy combos. in addition to all this, they added branching pathways through the castle, more bosses, and an actual story. Hope this helps!
