Big Boss

God of War

Recommended Posts

I have no idea where or how far I am in the game but I can already see I'm going to be doing a lot of exploring once I'm finished with the story. I've explored so much  but there seems to be so much more exploring to do.

 

Is this the best God Of War? 

I'll throw caution to the wind since I'm not done yet and say "Heck yes"

 

Anyway see you guys in a week. Should be done with the story by then.

I just can't seem to enjoy the combat. Maybe I'm going into areas that my level isn't suited for (is that even possible here?), but the camera just doesn't cut it for combat. Only big areas with enemies right in front kind of work. I spent three minutes yesterday trying to figure out where the fire projectile was coming from, and it was coming from on top of a boulder around the "arena". This is irritating. As Kratos, the God of FUKING WAR, I want to be able to fukc motherf**kers up like it was no one's business. Multiple enemies are just annoying at this point. I can take a single troll out no problem, but when there are these

flying around things, and the lizard things who bore, and the disappear-rers who cast a spell on these other regular dudes in one small space together,

and I can only see Kratos in the frame, it becomes terribly annoying. As an example,

the soul-eater

wasn't difficult at all, because I could place the guy, and his position was obvious all the time. But even with three regular enemies, I mentally prepare for a tough time. It just isn't working for me. Grrrr..

Lower the difficulty or Understand the combat. Use everything you got.

 

Best Tip i can give is Use Atreus all the time. Listen to Atreus. He points from where enemies are coming  when you are in danger.

 

See the indicators on screen, it shows at what attack stage enemies are. Color changes as per attack and distance.

 

You can even use Axe as a ranged weapon untill you have found out the enemy attacks or can play the game like that entirely. There are so many options in combat.

Switch off the threat indicators and listen to Atreus warn you about where the attacks are coming from. I switched off the HUD completely a third of the way through the game and my combat improved so much. You're forced to pay attention to Atreus and enemy placements. I'm so much more aware of where the enemies are and where the attacks are coming

from.

 

For the spoilered enemies, you should take care of with ranged axe attacks and Atreus. Create space from the more slower enemies and take down these pesky ones first. Atreus will warn you if someone is about to attack you from off screen.

 

Also, the game looks so good without any HUD elements, no Kratos or enemy health bars, no noisy threat indicators. Been playing on hard and really enjoying the combat.

Facing the same issue. Idk why. :(

 

i thought it it was just me who’s having hard time in killing enemies in this Gow. It just it feels so tough  to evade, counter, check where the

 

spells coming from

 

 

the camera angle during combat 

 

specially when your aim is locked I meant when you press R3  I find it difficult to move and evade. Quick turn doesn’t help either. It’s just I  can’t focus on one enemy while  killing him. Those fireball (or whatever it’s called) throwers are so annoying coz of that reason.

Do not lower the difficulty as the combat was more fun at give me a challenge. Minor combat spoilers for the ones finding the game to be difficult.

 

 

 


 

I felt the enemies were brutal in the first quarter of the game because of the lack of skills for Kratos. Always remember to Dodge the projectiles and unblockable attacks, Block/Parry the attacks that you can. Keep an eye out for the three three threat indicators(White, Yellow and Red) and react appropriately. Upgrade Atreus' skill tree as much as possible as he can keep many enemies busy while you take care of the enemy that needs to die first. Keep an eye out for enemy levels and their health bar color. If they are two/three level above Kratos' level - backout and visit the area after you gain few levels. You can do the sidequests/favor in any order and they are available even after finishing the story. Try completing as many sidequests as possible as they reward you with good loot/XP. 

 

Do not hesitate to spend all the XP and HackSilver as you earn a sh*t ton by the time you reach the final third of the game

We are continuing to investigate an issue where selecting the “New Game” option from the main menu without closing down the application first may result in missing dialogue and possible progression blockers. To avoid this in the meantime, please close down the application before starting a new playthrough.

Yeah, that's the thing. I was taking it too literally where I wouldn't want my kid to be in harm's way, and try and keep him away, and never use him. I will try and get used to this way, of using Atreus as an equal, but that still doesn't improve the camera issues. 

I guess I'm having a hard time letting go of how satisfying it was to murder and destroy in the old games. This GOW plays completely different, and so far, it's not as, for a lack of a better word, fulfilling. If Kratos moved slightly faster in combat, and the camera was panned out, it would've worked. Anyway, it doesn't matter now.

I switched it off right around the first boss fight, but then I thought I might miss something important, or some game elements which I was sure would be revealed, but I'm going to switch it back off now. It does play a lot more immersive that way.

Yeah, but it's GOW. It's been a part of us growing up. It's hard to let go :P
