Personally I don't want to see, since it is the first 30 mins of gameplay, but man oh man I am so tempted, I recall back before GOW3 came out there were some leaks of the Poseidon battle, curiosity got the best of me, but I didn't watch it all only snippets. Will probably do the same here. Why would they do this to us!? A 3-5 min epic trailer would have sufficed!

Please insert your thoughts if you saw the video, I didn't want to at first, but curiosity got the best of me. I will write my thoughts below in the spoiler tag, so those who don't want to be spoiled to the video, won't see my post on accident.

 

Spoiler
First off I want to say that out of all of the GOW games opening gameplay/bosses, this one had to be the weakest imo. GOW1 had the legendary Hydra that is known as one of the most iconic openings to a game ever. GOW2 had the Colossus statue, GOW3 had the epic Poseidon battle. GOW:A has? Not really clear on what the boss was here, I mean I suppose it was those reptile creatures, but seemed to be regular gameplay honestly with some mini bosses thrown inbetween. Perhaps it was because the boss wasn't right in your face withing the first 2-3 mins like in the previous games, this one actually had you do the regular stuff before introducing a big bad guy. It honestly felt to me more like halfway through the game rather than an epic GOW intro to me. Now on to the postitives, I liked the stage, it was great, everything seemed to move and shift while you walked on it, that was really cool. Also it would seem like your bare fists and legs are a weapon in this game, whoever is playing seems to shift from one to the other on fly. Honestly I like that, its pretty cool that you can fight bad guys with your bare hands and I'm actually surprised it took this long to make it into the game. Environment and enemies look great and very detailed.  One last thing, I like how the guts spilled out on the cyclops after you split him open, nice departure from the usual eye rip.

>don't want to be spoiled
They deserve to be if they even came into the thread.

>weakest
I might have to agree here.

>what the boss was
Hecatoncheir's small arms being mutated by breast monsters from Magaera. Weren't you following along?

>reptile
Bugs.

>mini-bosses
Cyclops makes for one. Not plural. The odd creature was a boss. The infected Hecatoncheir head at the end is the last stage. This strikes me as a copy of GoWIII's opening (along with elements of Scylla from GoS). Lots of GoWIII and GoS in this entry. That's exactly where this will fit quality wise. Inferior to the former, but superior to the latter.

>regular stuff first
The very first act was slapping Mageara. We face some breast bugs while chasing her, deal with some infected prisoners and then the first encounter with the infected arms begins. Later a Cyclops Berserker and another encounter with the 'boss'.

>halfway in
Didn't feel like a start to me either.

>liked the stage
Agreeable.

>acting like unarmed WW is new
Have you note been keeping up at all?

>bad guys
Interesting way to phrase this.

>enemies look great
I'm not sure I agree.

>guts spill
It would be weird if they didn't (Centaur had it).

>nice departure
I'd still rather have the eye rip.

NOTE: Nice double spoiler.

Gally: Kratos wasn't always a Sue. GoW1 made him an **bleep** that nobody liked and he lost multiple times in the same game (ultimately failing to get what he wanted).

Having them establish Furies as some major threat beyond what is already noted as stronger than any Titan (though they were pathetic compared to Olympians in GoWIII), Hecatoncheir, and then promptly have Kratos utterly embarass one, make it run from him, etc. ...well that's just terrible.

Godmode still nitpicking posts I see. I don't want this to turn into the same ordeal as the other thread, so I will not be responding to your cries and will ask that please no one else do either. Please keep it to the video at hand. Thank you.

What's the gif limit on this site?  They don't fit or work in the spoiler box.
