You know you can skip all the cutscenes, right?
Also thats just part of the game, you have to be able to keep your healers and ranged soldiers protected at practically all times. Just carefully monitor the range of your enemies and keep them outside of it. you can also use your soldier to reduce their range and protect them. You could also try the casual difficulty too
So I can either skip the cutscenes and have no clue what's going on, playing a game I would then have zero connection with...or sit through them all and be bored...
I realize that's part of the game but it doesn't make sense within the context of the game. They're playing for the long term when many of the battles (especially right at the beginning) are one-off fights for all either party knows. You'd normally just place soldiers around to keep the healers at bay but not attack them, why waste three soldiers to take out a healer when those same three soldiers could take out one or two of your strongest guys? THEN you go for the healer. Either way, you certainly wouldn't take soldiers off their own battles en masse to pursue a healer.
It just grows tiresome is all but like I said, then every battle boils down to the exact same thing. There's very little room for strategy or improvisation.
I want to like the game don't get me wrong, but so far I fear I may just never get into it. Hopefully I will but if not it's just my opinion...feel free to go on enjoying it.
