Now that I think about it, I have never died while playing OFF. It’s a great game, but it’s sort of easy. Maybe it’s just me….
I don’t think it was supposed to be difficult. Especially not the battles, since the combat wasn’t the main focus — because, conversely, you spend more time on the puzzles and the battles are just what’s in between. They’re a connector, a pipe line, but not the valve. If that makes sense.
The main focus, in my opinion, is the story line. But more specifically, the way in which the story line is brought to the player. Difficulty just doesn’t play into that.
Could the game be harder? Probably. Is it actually needed though? Not really, no.
