In the other games, the focus was more on attack and move, attack and move, attack and move. Blocking was used, but mostly in a parry standpoint.
In this game the focus seems to be more on blcoking, a lot more. And the new parry system is not the best. Its harder to time and leaves you vulnerable afterward.
Since it is a shift in thinking and playing style, people were having a hard time with it. At lease this is what I thought for long time fans.
Just my two cents.
not me. soon as i hit that first level i was using my amulet and orkos stone. do a quick combo on medusa that isnt slowed then striaght into my R2 ares spam. Amulet,Orkos again. red above their head..grapple..fill magic back up, repeat... ^_^
I didnt even bother to block on this trial. just rolled around.
it will be phone quality because my wife jus recorded it from her phone. its TOA hard, no blocking. she has to send it to my email if she can then i upload to youtube.
I did about the same as you on the first round, minus the air attacks, but took me longer. The second round is where I used block a ton. The third not so much. I just let the centaur charge me and then I QTed him to death. Then I used my magic to finish off the rest of the guys.
Awesome job!! You get some kudos.
Well done, sir.
Thank you mozzie. Lol i undertstand where you are coming from since TOA is the most difficult part of the game. Really appreciate you watched and thanks for the feedback. hopefully more people here on the forums see what strategy can be used to complete it. mix that in with their blocking and TOA will be cake for them.
