i remember on the beta that was 2-3 weeks ago and i could tell thast Kratos isn't OP at all. Radec is OP in long range but that's about it. i know Kratos does the O button to grab ppl with his chain multiple times but that's how he is played (same goes with radec) Sweeth Tooth shotgun is OP too, fat princess stun is OP, Parappa boombox and grabing ppl is also OP. This game is truly balance and every character has something that balances it. (Can't review sly since he wasn't in the beta i played)
Fought a team of Kratos in 2v2 and all they did was that move, guarding helps a little but if you are below or above them thats when you are in trouble since they always throw you up. :/
I'm not sure if Kratos is OP. He's definitely easy to use effectively (run in and smash everything), but he's not too hard to counter with Radec. Personally, I feel that his lvl 3 fills a bit fast.
Kratos IS overpowered not by the fact of his moves (even though even a baby can win just by pressing Square and FWD Square) but by the fact that his AP bar gets filled wayyyyyyy to fast just by pressing square. Other characters that are overpowered are sackboy. That little grunt just stays in a corner and starts spamming cakes and his AP bar fills veeeeeeeeery fast, again, no skills whatsoever. Abour Radec, usually they don´t know how to use him so they just spam the sniper so it is very easy to see their movement in advance. Regards
