Its not bad IMO. Infact, its very fun. Though I accept that it definitely isn't the most polished WRPG around. But I've comet o expect that from Piranha. They don't have the budget of CD-Projekt. This game is waay better than any game from the Risen series, and its giving me heavy Gothic 2 vibes.

I'm playing through Witcher 3 right now and it's so bad in differentiating between combat mode and exploration mode combat.

Geralt pulls out sword, you're in combat.
Geralt puts sword away, you're not in combat.
How is that even remotely hard to grasp?

The "gothic"-like games were always niche. You either love them or hate them. I always loved them. While they were always clunky, they had always a certain charm. They are also one of the very few games ever created, where the motivation of the maincharacter is clear and understandable. Also for the most part the mc can answer and do everthing in any given situation.

The clunkyness is part of the charm. Haven't played Elex yet but if it's anything like Risen 1 then it's probably not really clunky, people just expect the same they've seen from every other game.

If you liked Risen and Gothic, then you will love Elex. It's the same formula. It's basically a postapocalyptic Gothic...the only difference between all these games is...the MC has a name.

Elex is not bad at all. The more i have played it, the better the game have become, but maybe the character controls could be a little better.

Can you run people through, like you could in Gothic 1&2? They took it out in one of the Risen games.

Yes.

And it alters the story too

70 hours and beat the game. Its gothic 2 in drag. Seriously. The exploration is awesome and it has all the same complaints I had with gothic as a series.

I went in expecting clunky gothic style gameplay and thats exactly what I got. I also got a pretty decent story and had a lot of fun exploring. The modern aspects made it a little more interesting too.

While I loved it, I could never recommend it to anyone not a fan of the old Gothic games. It has the same balancing issues, the same simple ai, and the same horrible interface issues. But it also has the same charm and feeling of progression that I crave. I absolutely hate scaling in open worlds these days.
