So I've just started the second playthrough as 9S and I'm finding it extremely underwhelming. Where I was enjoying the flashy, mashy, dashy playstyle of 2B, 9S is just an absolute snore in comparison. He feels sluggish, doesn't seem to combo all that well, and I don't at all care for the hacking aspect of his character. Unfortunately, I ended up finishing the first playthrough of the game much sooner than I'd anticipated (mind you the lead up to the fight with Eve isn't exactly a surprise) and as a result feel like I got shorted in doing all I'd wanted to do with 2B.
I had side quests with the required material queued up to be handed in, plans on discovering all of the hidden samurai weapons throughout the map, finding that blasted flower that 6O briefly mentions, and… so much else. I feel like my story got cut short and it's lost, like I missed out on a bunch, and now I'm stuck playing with a character I just really don't care for.
For those who may be in a similar situation and powered through it, or those who kept playing enjoying it all the same, what would you suggest I do? Do I just bite the bullet, grind through 9S' perspective of the story, and pray that A2's is worthwhile?
