I think there was too much stuff, but Im not sure what to remove. Or maybe it should be arranged differently, go figure. Game itself was quite fast, but the UI and stuff was pretty slow etc. If that makes any sense, no idea. Wticher series is "synced" better.
Turning off UI made the game better for me, so I think removing stat, perk tree and crafting would make this game better, I don't find these ancient game designs fun, all they do is trivializing game mechanics by making the things way too easy in the late game, same as all the skill checks in this game where all they do is allowing the player to skip content.
