I totally agree. Picking attack directions is what I was AT LEAST expecting from this game. That'd add so much more depth and skill to the combat. I do not want a game where you mindlessly tap and swing in whatever direction like in Skyrim. You have no idea how disappointing it is to have things like that missing in games created years after other games that did. Looking at you, Dark Messiah. Hellraid would be wise to learn from that game..
