    Is there more to this game than button mashing?

    I normally play FPS, and i've played 10 minutes total of the original GoW and wasnt impressed. mash buttons together to do the same string of combos over and over again.

    same argument can be made for and against all fighting games

    knowing the right combos to use is part of the process

    Yeah you can button mash your way through it like any fighting game or you can learn the combos to make your attacks more powerful and what not. I think it's sort of a love/hate kind of thing.

    the fighting parts are pretty much button mashing though don't expect to mindlessly button-mash your way with some of the tougher enemies and the bosses. later you can upgrade your weapons to do additional moves with your combos. you also get spells (which can be upgraded too)

    play it on god mode. you need to have more strategy to not get hit and execute a combo instead of just xxxxxxxxxxxx

    When I got to the part where you have to protect your wifey and daughter, in god mode it was probably one of the most frustrating things ever in a game for me.

    The game is epic though, just give a little more effort than 10 minutes :hsugh:

    :rofl: thats right attack is square isnt it? :rofl:

    fucking DAWT. Most frustrating thing in the world. Then I realized that hugging them filled the Spartan Meter and I would just fill it up, then unleash a fully upgraded Posidens Rage on those fuckers. Shit wrecked everything. :bowdown:

    a lot of what makes it fun to is how you can do attacks with style. Heavy heavy heavy will do the job for most drones, but learning how to chain several moves spinning and air moves together before ending with a big slam knocking out a whole group is pretty satisfying.
