WOW! I started the combat trials, but realized you don't get any points if you lose which is fine for the easier ones, but for the harder ones it's faster to level up just by playing versus. I should go through more fo the acrades though. Hey, if I just beat an arcade on hard, does that automatically give me the trial for beating it one normal too?
Yes, same goes for perfecting arcade, if you perfect arcade with a character on All-Star, you'll get the 2 previous perfects, as well. This one is very annoying when you get Lv 4 Sly, Kratos, Drake and Raiden in kill limits...
How the heck can you endure playing all these terrible combat trials?
Trust me, there was a fair share of rage.
Can you list top 10 hardest combat trials?
1 - Radec lv 1 mastery
2 - Drake lv 3 survivor
3 - Jak's multi-hit combo trial (where you have to get AP from combos and get 3 kills as well in 3 minutes)
4 - Sly vs. Sly Arena (The demonic lv 5 Sly)
5 - Nariko lv 3 survivor
6 - Heihachi lv 1 mastery
7 - Toro circle only attacks
8 - Sweet Tooth - Untouchable
9 - Kratos vs. Kratos Arena
10 - Jak - Untouchable
It's been a while, I may be forgetting some and some may be easier now due to the meta. People learned kill-confirms and combos and what not, keep in mind that I finished these a few days after the game released.
