Holy crap, would have to take a bloody holiday to complete this game... Is this a game primarily for fighting gamers or strategic RPG players? Anyhow, I bought it. Was greatly reduced through Xbox Live Gold. Imagine any DLC chapters for this. You'd be gone for another 100 hours probably!
The game is ultimately about learning, discovery, experimentation and pattern recognition. You encounter an enemy at one point who telegraphs attacks and you forget it as it becomes a generic rank and file troop, two bosses later you're getting your ass kicked by a boss until it clicks that it's literally the same attack as that earlier mook, only sped up.
There's some things that people agree are okay to know about ahead of time, but generally speaking.... The more blind the playthrough, the better the experience.
And kill the dogs first.
