i can't find a weakness on drake he is above avg in melee and great at the keep away game.where as jak and daxter, radec, ratchet and clank have great keep away, but pretty crappy melee.that is not balance if you're gonna make a character make sure he has a weakness. for example raiden even though he is a bit cheap in terms of ap gain he doesnt have any projectiles along with kratos.
Well, Kratos does have the horribly weak Bow of Apollo and his neutral circle can counter projectiles - sending them flying right back at them.
He's honestly not that bad. He projectiles don't clear whole stages and they don't even cover all situations. His melee is good, but no better than your average meleer. His long range attacks actually have a bit of afterlag to them, so if you can avoid them, there's your chance to strike.
Don't get me wrong, he's a solid character, but he's not invincible, or even top 5 in my opinion.
in my oinion is greatest weakness, not so obvious..lies within his strenghts. close ups and distance. so radec or spike I'd use against him if not a hack n slash character. radec i think would be the best option for drake specifically
