Now $26.60 at Harvey Norman. That has certainly dropped in price quickly.

i downloaded god of war hd & couldn't get into it (was a ps+ game).  i thought it was really clever how the boss fights & that kinda thing worked, but it just really didn't do it for me for some reason so played it once & that was it.  also downloaded i am alive, found that hard to get into/enthralled in as well :/

God of War: Ascension 1v1 multiplayer mode revealed

Quote

In Bout of Honor two warriors will put their lives and reputations on the line to achieve the best of seven rounds in this strictly 1v1 mode. Bout of Honor is a true contest of skill with no chests, fountains, or world weapons to aid you. This mode also disables relics and allows for a Champion’s magic to regenerate over time. Beware, my brothers in arms, magic generates slowly over time so use it sparingly. If you are careless you may end up like the Prophet Castor with your head underneath another warrior’s boot.

Along with this brand new mode come four new maps specifically crafted for Bout of Honor.

Infinites have been removed, overpowered weapons tweaked, and damage from 100% combos adjusted.

Hey ainTnoBody, you have my sympathy!  That is the largest difficulty spike in the game by a huge margin, and one of the larger difficulty spikes in games I've ever experienced.  I'd say it's the worst 'game design moment' from Sony Santa Monica in half a decade.  They did patch it to make it a little easier, but there's no getting around it being as hard as all get out to get through, even on 'normal' difficulty settings, relative to the rest of the game.  I consulted a few walkthroughs on the net when I got to it (I can't remember which, sorry, but there's a bunch out there), to get a few strategies and the like, but even after that it took me 15+ attempts to get through the damn thing.  Good luck :D.

Argh, that's horrible - maybe hit up Sony Support?  Apparently pre-patch that stage was even more horrendous.  Deffo hit the walkthroughs/strat guides up.  It's been too long for me to remember, but some of the abilities and attacks were far more effective there than others.  Good luck :D.

Thanks for the info Spec :D.  Didn't mind GoW:A's MP, refreshingly good and a bit different.  No idea if anyone still plays it now though.

Finished this on hard today, save file says just under 10hours.

In general it was good, it still provides those moments of epicness and scale but I feel the story was filling in something that just didnt need feeling in.

It did flow well though playing through the game I never felt it lingered in one spot too long, it kept moving, I liked the jumping between timelines as well.

It wasn't too bad playing through difficulty wise most of the time it only took 1 or 2 retires to get through a battle, apart from one annoying section in the final battle the only parts that I had real trouble with were ones with many Saytar. Every-time you got a new blade element was dreadful for me, so many Saytar, I had to resort to just spamming grab in the air to get through them.
The patch made the Trial a one and done, I don't think I would've gotten through it without the hp in-between first go though that first floor would be key to success. The first floor was the tough one then first phase of the second floor last 3 phases were easy.
I did find that you couldn't be as aggressive as past ones, still could dominate battles if I got on the front foot(Always fun launching and juggling enemies) but once you got put on the backfoot I had to generally play defensively for that battle.


Autosave vs save points: if it was more clear when it saved and had an optional manual save slot option I wouldn't have any issues with the change.

General gameplay: camera was for the most part good apart from a handful of times were it was the worst its been in the series, the camera never really bothered me up until those few parts in Ascension.
I'm glad the series has slowly dropped the pointless button mashing to open chests and putting large amounts of doors everywhere, really saves your thumb not having to mash O or R1.

Combat: I stuck with Ares fire activated on my blades 90% of the time I just didn't feel any need to switch the others, the amulet's were good though both extremely useful so I enjoyed their additions, the blade powers just felt pointless.
They made parry useless I didn't touch it after I realised it was no good compared to what it was.
Other than that I gelled well with the rest of it, the O weapons were a nice addition and it felt the same as it always has.

Overall it was fun but I can see why they chose to remaster 3 over this as it just doesn't add anything to the story that was needed, and 3 will lead new players into 4 much better with it looking to continue on after 3s ending.
