The MP has great graphics, tight controls, & fun gameplay..but as with my experience with past MP fighting games..this one is full of people who play WAY TOO MUCH..one of the main reasons I dont play online very much anymore. I guess when Ascension comes out I'm gonna have to play it on the hardest difficulty setting from the very beginning & try to make the SP mode last as long as possible, seeing as how the SP mode will be shorter because of multiplayer. Looks like another fun GoW game nevertheless..
This Multiplayer is definetly for advanced players of the series. I spent 10 minutes trying to remember how to use the special attacks besides the L2 one while getting the tar beat out of me. How about just R2 and R1 for the others? Their easy to remember.
Parrying too could be simplified too, I can't quickly L1 and X when I'm trying to string a "Square" combo, I fail everytime.
In short, playing the game controls after the basic don't come natural and is sure to chase away all but best of this from trying the game more than once, because they won't be having fun at ALL
I only played GOW 1, and I understand the controls perfectly. This game is meant for those that play a lot of mp games in general, especially fighters. The controls are fine, just needs balancing.
If you really want to play, just practice and get better... you don't have to judge people like that.
Show me a link where Sony Santa Monica said this. Please.
First off, it was announced officially that the SP will be shorter than the other ones because Ascension has MP. & second, I'm not that bad of a player. Its just a little irritating trying to get used to this while other people keep teaming up on me. Sorry if I offended anyone by giving my opinion.
Everything still looks amazing & I'm glad to see a brand new PS3 GoW game coming out again.
& if anyone from Santa Monica is reading this..the multiplayer is still awesome. I'm just not a big MP gamer. And God of War is my favorite series on the PS3. I've played the demo too many times already lol, & for now the MP beta is gonna have to do until March 12 comes around. Can't wait to see what happens in the story. Ares looks SWEET!!!
