The beta was awesome! I played it late unfortunately. I was extremely frustrated at first getting my dome cracked repeatedly but after playing a while I found that it truly takes concentration and skill to execute attacks. If you learn to move quickl and use your parry and evade you can be a fierce opponent.
My only suggestion is that there should be some sort of face off where you can challenge 1 other player to a duel with first person view or maybe just a larger view of the third style and possibly some crazy slow motion combo moves that really drive home your ability to kick fannies.
Sounds a little like mortal combat I know but I'm sure you guys would put a unique spin on it.
Love it! Keep it up!!!!
i'm glad someone else is sharing my enthusiasm about the multiplayer!
ofcourse i will do the same with you as soon as i get the game...finish the story first to get in the proper mood.
and then unleash my Poseidon (or Hades) champion!
i also have high hopes for the story and i expect it to be at least 12 hours long...but its difficult to top the previous GOW titles...
we'll have to wait and see i guess...hope they amaze me like they did with the multiplayer part.
First off let me say I like all on this forum am a humongous G.O.W. Fan and I own every game! I must say when I heard about the multi-player I was not happy, I figured it was just gonna be nothing but gang-beatings everytime you step in the arena. An for the most part it was, the only difference is that eventhough I got owned a couple of times (I'll admit it) there was some great satisfaction in getting that brutal kill vengeance on someone.If that happened to be anyone on these forums and maybe it was you deserved it! LOL
Now I must say I did actually like the MP and must give a hearty BRAVO to the creators and all the staff involved in the beta, if the actual MP is half as good we are truly going to be blessed by the Gods!
-Grapple moves were a little buggy
-It was way too easy for other players to steal my brutal kill finishers, I do all the work and someone else steals my red halo kill, not cool!
-Maybe it was just me but it seemed at times you couldn't move in certain areas or you got stuck. Could be just lag but I'm sure that'll be fixed in the final version.
-With the beta over, does that mean we will all go back to zero and lose whatever ranking we obtained in the Beta when the game is launched?
-If my PS+ membership expires before the release date will I still be eligible for the thank you gift of the exclusive armor and weapon?
Thank you so much for your time, and I have been patiently waiting for the release, I pre-ordered the collector's edition the day it was announced!

-I'm Afraid So My Friend, It Has Happened Multiple Times Already In The Beta 'Patches' . So Yes, When The Game Finally Releases We Will Have To Start Anew Again, And Nothing Will Carry Over .

-Yes Sir, You Are Definitely Getting The Beta Tester Reward, Whether Or Not Your PS+ Membership Will Expire Or Not. It Does Not Matter How You Got-In The Beta All That Matters Is That You Played It . Just Relax And Wait For When They Announce The Time We Will Be Able To Redeem It !
I Hope That Answers Your Questions ? If Not Just Reply Back K : )
