hellblade and ryse both had way more basic combat that literally just centered around weak and strong attacks. there was nothing else there to play around with. (22 minutes ago)
and then you have the boy, who distracts, staggers and sets you up for more volleys. now compare that to hellblade or ryse...and you honestly can't see the difference? (25 minutes ago)
then you've got the elements associated with the axe itself, where you can freeze enemies (and i assume other elements will be introduced later too) and do powered up elemental attacks (26 minutes ago)
there seem to be a decent depth to the combat in god of war. with staggers, shield barges, slow mo air juggles, grabs, axe throws, and standard hacking. (28 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: if you think that looks like ryse then i really don't know what to tell you. doesnt look anything like ryse or hellblade to me outside of a camera angle. (29 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: agree, if the enemy variety is there as well it could be an awesome combat system, especially for an over the shoulder camera game. Camera does zoom out for larger fights btw (59 minutes ago)
