The combat doesn't look fancy, but is very smart and has a nice composition when you use a good variety of actions, which is how it is supposed to be played, if you want to be both effective and stylish.

I can imagine people used to just roll and R1 spam in Dark Souls being frustrated with this combat. I'd say Vampyr's combat is a simplified version of Nioh. It's all about variety.

I would like to see a video from your combat efforts.

Here is one of mine. I don't think it looks clunky:

I focused on Shadow Mist (the brute version), Blood Cauldron, Coagulation (the blood sucking version) and Autophagy, basically in this order.

Main weapons were Hacksaw (blood) and Priwen Stake (stun). I also messed around with a two-handed club that could parry, focusing on stun. And had revolver (stun) and shotgun (damage, I think).

If you're curious to see the result, here is one of my combat videos:
