    Now that I finished it, my only true complaints are that it is unfinished, the ending(I really don't like that mystic nonsense) and the pawns. Regardless, I can recommend everyone to try it out now that it's on a sale. Just don't rely on pawns too much. They can be powerful, but it requires commitment and a half.
    Pawns are only as good as their inclinations and assigned skills. If you don't take care when managing those then they will not be so good, but proper party can do most content with you simply watching. Some examples include fighter pawns, which can sometimes execute several perfect blocks in a row if you give them 0 shield skills.

    And I disagree with ending dislike, you can tell whatever you want about game's story up till you meet dragon again but after that it easily made up for weaker early parts. It also makes some more sense if you play Dark Arisen (bitterblack) content because it explains better how entire thing works in game's world.

    I very much enjoy the rest of the game.

    My biggest problem is the lack of passive control of telling your pawn to stay put even when you start attacking. Instead of charging in gunz blazing!

    Yeah, I know what you mean. There are basic commands for them, but the main way to control their behaviour is through pawn inclinations, their bestiary, and the skills you give them.

    I still find it very hard to understand how the inclinations work, but when you hire a pawn that someone has set up properly its truly amazing - they basically play better than I can, haha.

    Yes, quite. I'd just prefer if I had better / more control over them until they begin being really good. Take a support gameplay style(Fighter tanks, Magic enchants, Sorc CC etc). What if you want to play it from the start? You'll have quite a miserable time. Also, directing them to attack the M.Golem discs directly would've been awesome(they refuse to attack some in the air). As for the ending, that was about Godsbane. I prefer personal stuff. This just felt very philosophical and impersonal.

    The version I have is the steam version. As for your second point, I wouldn't want to cheapen the adventure by using extremely high pawns from the get go.

    I have a 78 pawn from a friend helping me out. It does not make much of a difference in fights since there is so much CC going on (knock downs, grabs and so on). He does not have even a window to attack.

    Regardless, it pretty fun to see him being tossed out a cliff by a cyclops thinking "well, better him than me I guess".

    Maybe so, but a lvl 200 pawn when you're lvl 1? No thanks.

    Most classes can wreck monsters if the pawn is leveled properly.

    I agree. That's why when I go do some story related quests I send him away and grab a pawn from my actual level. I just let him stick around while I do escort missions and side quests.

    Nobody forces you to use them. Pick the one you think will enhance your game experience - because that's the point.

    yeah you can change the place where the game is saved but the steam version read the online account so they upload your main pawn from that account, hence why I said a lvl 200 pawn on a lvl 1 char

    btw you did know the pawns also learn skills from others pawns and player not only in your gameplay but also in someone else game? so you can get a nice bestiary from someone else if they so wish, trading pawns with friends was also a thing, someone wanted some specific thing or item, they traded it onlineor getting a pawn with a high bestiary and then fighting.

    and for the people still not undertanding the inclinations, check the wiki, there is a list on what inclination is supose to do

    You actually can create a main pawn for each unique save or, as you say, use the high level one if you want.  But don't ask me what happens to those extra main pawns when you have a different profile active lol.

    I've done the profile swap several times and when you restore one, whichever main pawn you were using with that profile is your main pawn again.
