r2 not working for ice magic

10 replies 358 views Edited Jun 7, 2013

my magic button works for Ares fire magic but not Poseiden ice magic.  Is this a glitch or do I need a new game?  Mind you my controllers are both fine, r2 works at all times with any other game.

Are u talking about single-player? If so, u only get to use Ares magic at level one, the other elements u have to max them out to be able to use there magic.

yes single player.  I can use ares magic but not poseidens and when i received the ice you know they allow you to kill off the first enemies so you can get the hang of it but I still wasn't able.  thats where i left off on the game

Yes, as I said, you need to level up Ice of Poseidon to lvl 5 to be able to use the magic, this is the same for Lightnign of Zeus, and Soul of Hades. Fire of Ares is the only one that u dont need to max out to be able to use its magic.

Yes they ruined the magic in sp. ares and Zeus are the best. It takes way to long to acquire the orbs necessary to level up each blades element (in Titan mode). Not to mention you rarely even get the orbs each blade states you get by burning, freezing, electrocuting, and whatever it is hades does.

This is the worst GoW sp (haven't played GoS).

Hmm... I never had the problem with attacking with square, it might be a bug that popped up when 1.07(cuz I havent played the SP after this udpate).

That is also strange, I always get the orbs when I burn, freeze, electocute, and desinagrate(forgot how to spell this). Mainly burning I get the orbs, the other ones are alittle harder to do though.
