The should ask Santa Monica God of War creators, their boss fights are beyond badassery :D

ScreenGurus841d ago

The only issue with God of War is choosing just one "best" boss battle. Like an avalanche of great moments.

for someone that has never played the series, which one would you say is the best epic boss battle in GOW?

masterfox841d ago

Definitely I think God of War III are the best of all, Ascension has some insane battles too.

3's Poseiden & Chronos, and the original's Leviathan

Bosses that regenerate are always a challenge.

ScreenGurus841d ago

I always thought they were slightly cheap. Then again I'm usually being massacred by them - so what would I know haha.

I hate when I I'm whooping a Boss's butt and his bar all of the sudden fills back up or sometimes 2 bars appear.

Most of the ninja gaiden bosses were epic on the original Xbox and for me the current epic boss battle is the nameless King in dark souls 3 👍🏻

BossBattle841d ago

Those Ninja Gaiden games were as hard as Dark Souls games.

Kashima840d ago

Only had trouble with Alexi thing whatever was his name.

JasonBloodbourne840d ago

Yes mate they were. Fantastic game the first gaiden. I'd love a reboot of that franchise

The music! I know I'm in for a good fight when I get a well composed piece of music to exemplify the boss' badassery

Therefore, every FFVII boss is epic!

Drdeadlocke841d ago

Part of the reason windwaker final boss was so epic was the music for me I still have that theme stuck in my head :)

ScreenGurus840d ago

This very much so! Music is a huge part of what makes the encounter so memorable.
