God of War Has Been Made Easier

The God of War series has always been notorious for its challenging moments. Some gamers tend to forget that the game is an action game and occasionally will bring a challenge to the table. Well now God of War Ascension has been made easier over an uproar of one of the hardest sections in the game.

It should never of been patched.
I mean where do you draw the line if you listen to whinny people from the gaming media? God Of War fans like the challenge and this game is clearly made for the fans.

You do not get to speak for myself as a God of War fan.

I never once liked God of War because of its difficulty or the challenge. What I enjoyed was a tight combat system mixed with a very interesting world that satisfied.

"What I enjoyed was a tight combat system"

but the combat system is at its best and really shines through in the more challenging parts. You don't get to use your full arsenal of weapons/magic when there are a small amount of enemies to fight (well you don't need to anyway). The combat truly comes alive when there are a variety of different enemies all coming at you AKA the challenging parts.

however the challenge isnt what I like about God of War, do I enjoy a good fight? Sure. But I'm not going to sit there and go "god of war is ruined. its too easy now". That not why I picked up every god of war. Its not why I'm a fan.

HarryMasonHerpderp1911d ago (Edited 1911d ago )

Okay then fair enough.
I'm assuming you're in the minority though.
I dunno I could be wrong? do most God Of War fans enjoy the challenge in a GOW game? I know I do.

I completed the supposedly too difficult part on Hard mode on my second try. The game overall was a lot easier than 1, 2 or 3 on Hard difficulty. I have a hard time understanding the people who whine about this part on the internet especially because it's not even that hard to begin with.

too much call of duty ...that's the reason

The Trial Of Archimedes was not as difficult as some people said. You just have to be patient, use all the powers you have wisely and block. And considering there was no "Challenge Of The Gods" this time, they should've left the difficulty as it was. It was the only challenging part in the whole game.

The game is awesome and everyone with a PS3 needs to play this game. Also the patch does not makes the fights in the trials easier, it just gives you some green orbs after you completed a level.

The patch is nothing major really. If you were able to do it before the patch, if you get more health it just wont matter, because you were already able to do it without the bit of extra health. And the enemies will behave the same and do same damage.

And if you barely completed level 1 because of luck, then the green orbs will help you to proceed.

I have completed the game in titan before the patch. And played it on titan after the patch just to see if there is any difference; and it is the same, but you get a bit of health, that if you knew already how to beat the first level is not noticeable at all.

People needs to stop complaining about everything and appreciate this amazing game.

"It should never of been patched."

actually, papy had said just prior to the patch that that section of the game turned out to be more difficult than he had originally intended.

second paragraph.

and i think the issue was more to do with the spike in difficulty from normal mode to hard mode. i personally got through the trial on my second attempt on normal, but it took me 2 hours to get through on hard.

finbars751911d ago (Edited 1911d ago )

Bullshit its been fixed.Im playing the last part of the game where you go up 5 levels and I still get no health whatsoever.I get to the second level and I have hardlesy any health at all.Im playing it on normal and still cant beat that part.I have been playing this for a week now with no patience any more.

Ezz20131910d ago your mind
was that the game fault or you are just not a good player ?!

if you notice alot of who got the game finished that part on hard and normal
i'm one of them
and didn't get any updates for the game because i don't go online

finbars751908d ago

Yeah that is it im not a good player.First of all only 1% of people who played this game on normal and up have beaten it so that tells you my friend you havnt done your information.My friend is actually ridiculiousy good at GOW games and couldnt get past the 5 levels.The only people who have beaten this game have been the ones on easy.I think your full of shit personally so nice try bud.

God of War 2 in my opinion was the best in the series and the hardest.

God of War is known to be gory, difficult and offensive.
If we take a look back in Greek Mythology, killing, sexism and adultery are rampant in it, so what's the problem?

We have feminine males like Sessler because the game is not how he wants it, or he purposely down rates it to get hits to his website. Didn't he review and praise God of War 2? What's so different now?

DragonKnight1911d ago

This game has just been an epic facepalm since release thanks to Madam Sessler stirring up the feminist B.S. as well as complaining about this very Trial, and then the rest of the New Age gamers who don't know what real difficulty is throwing a b*tchfest because something was too hard for them. GET BETTER AT THE GAME! I am willing to bet real money that there are children out there, honest to god kids, that could beat the Trials of Archimedes and cry less than the "adults" playing Ascension.

Thank Japan for Demon's/Dark Souls.

Yodagamer1911d ago (Edited 1911d ago )

Yea because Adam was the first and only person to comment on the difficult spike. (Sarcasm).

DragonKnight1911d ago

Yes, because that's EXACTLY what I said isn't it. (Reverse Sarcasm)

Wintersun6161911d ago

There was no spike to begin with. It was easier than I thought it would be on Hard.

Yodagamer1911d ago (Edited 1911d ago )

"thanks to Madam Sessler stirring up the feminist B.S. as well as complaining about this very Trial" it seemed like you commented on him exclusively. @winter sun I'm not saying there is one, but its been complained about a lot of times. Personally I love a challenge as much as anyone :-)

DragonKnight1911d ago

My comment is talking about the fact that Madam Sessler is a very well-known gaming journalist and is the biggest reason for the controversy around GoW:A's trophy name change, as well as twice mentioning that that particular trial was too hard for him to complete and he needed someone else to do it for him. He wasn't the first or the only, but his voice was heard a lot more.

Agreed, careful though. Madam Sess might not like your comment so he might start b*tching to the N4G mods to change it lolz.

On Topic: I just died a little inside T-T I guess i won't patch it until i'm through on hard.

Der_Kommandant1911d ago

I nearly broke my controller and my fingers in the last level.

imsocool12341911d ago

The select few only find it hard now? It's always been hard on the highest difficulty and that's the way it should be.

If people can't figure out how to block/parry and chain combos, then I feel sorry for you guys.

The trials are notorious for it's difficulty, since God of War 1. Anytime I would die, I would rage, but I liked the challenge and I was satisfied after completing it.

Wintersun6161911d ago

The Trials of Archimedes is only a level in the SP campaign. Not comparable to the "Trials" in Gow 1, 2 and 3. And it wasn't even too hard.
