In what Difficult did you play GoW?

Medium 18 48.65%
 
Hard 13 35.14%
 
Give me God of War 3 8.11%
 
Total:37

I beat it on normal as I do most games because I'd like my first play through to be enjoyable with some challenge still. That Queen wasn't so bad on normal but put up a good fight but wasn't that difficult.

Beat it on challenge, not hard at all, but...
"That Queen"... yup, that queen sure is hard.

I'll say you are a lot better player than me then =] it was quite more challenging than all the previous God modes of God of War prior.

And I know you haven't said it, but on the other thread someone said that combat is much more deep than other games because there is a lot of combos and whatnot that you need to clear on the higher difficulties... I basically cleared it with roll, parry and axe throw+arrows so not a lot of different skills and combos used (even more because most enemies will kill you while you are doing a big combo. The most I would do when getting the H&S weapon was 3 hit combos).

I also think kratos got weaker...  I mean, he got a hard time whit Baldur, one of the weakest Norse gods, after beating  the great 3 (Poseidon,Hades, zeus). Perhaps his power comes from his anger, he got lot's of problema whit greek gods and reasons to hate than, and not so much for Norse gods

I don't have a problem with how hard or weak he seemed against the Norse gods, because boss battles being challenging is ok (I'm looking at you final special boss). My grieve was at how much weaker Kratos was compared to the average mob. Only at end game with level 8 I was like being able to kill a level 5 mob (level 1 wouldn't show anymore) with like 3-5 hits and taking 10 for me to die (sure could still be killed with 1-3 from level 8 mob).

Just to be clear, i played the game on "give me challege" and not "give me god of war". I tried god mode and i just gave up on the first minutes.

About kratos power "vs mobs". Yeah, i agree, kratos normal attacks are kinda weak! Mobs are just too damn tough, you realy need to use runic attacks ,stun than "R3", Executes whit axe and "Boy" or the games becomes hell! Damn 70-100 cooldown is a must, and Runic is much better than strength.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Properly utilizing Atreus' bow for stuns, as well as switching to unarmed to build up stuns is really essential. Get your timing down for parries and actually take your time with encounters instead of rushing in. Use your range as an advantage. Make full use of skills and talismans.

It's not really *that* difficult.

Have you killed the final queen on give me god of war?

Play it on level 1 gear with bow and unarmed to see how crushing it gets after some 20-30h.

Owww sorry, misread you.

I bet give me challenge is plenty difficult, perhaps will replay the game on it to see. But man as you saw, God mode is like I said obnoxiously hard =p

The Queen... 17 life bars if I'm not wrong, each of them take 3 runics or like 10 combos to go down... 30 min fight... and even on level 8 she will kill you with 2 or 3 hits depending on the skill she is using. So even going with berserk stone, full rage and the skill to suck out energy (which you need to be very good player to get) you would have something like 3-5 full life depending on how you use them, so it is like 170 hits to kill the Queen against being hit no more than 15 times in 30 min of fight on a enemy that have over 25 different attacks, not all of them fast to recognize and react.

I played on Easy, lol. Beat everything with ease except the final Valkyrie, it's pretty much not possible to beat her unless you grind to get the Niflheim armor set fully upgraded, and I didn't feel like grinding in that boring maze for a few hours.

I think with a little training you could get the Queen without the full set. But yes you don't get much new doing it.

At least you had the good judgement of doing it only on the second play =p

Yeah, I did come close once or twice wearing a partially upgraded Niflheim set (one time I had her health below 5% when I died so I was pretty pissed), but it's definitely hard since you're under her level unless you fully upgrade the set to reach the same level as her. The main problem with that boss is that all of her attacks are randomized, if there was a set order for her attacks it would be so much easier because you'd have more time to react and either block, dodge, or hit her with a ranged attack while she is charging depending on what attack she is using. One of the hardest bosses in any game I've played.

I played on Normal. I found that to be challenging enough that I didn't just automatically win every fight, but easy enough that there were no multi-hour, frustration-filled fights - except the Valkyrie Queen. She was still incredibly difficult for me on Normal mode. I did eventually beat her though. I can't imagine that battle on the hardest difficulty setting.



I played it on hard, and it was pretty challenging but it never felt impossible. Every new fight or attempt got me closer and closer to victory. the story bosses were fairly easy but the Valkyries were pure ass, specially cause I was underlevel for a few of them. Super enjoyable and taking out the Valkyrie queen was such a great feeling.
