3.0 out of 5 stars Great, but annoying and frustrating, 3 Nov. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: God of War Collection (PS3) (Video Game)
On the one hand, the games are great: amazing story, amazing gamplay.

But: I think the developers do not understand that they are in entertainment business. In GOW 1, there are so many utterly annoying and frustrating aspects that I stopped playing it. The problem: To defeat opponents and bosses, one has to beat them by fighting (fun), but to finish them, one needs to play so-called mini-games where you have to twist the analog stick exactly in the right timing. These mini games are highly unforgiving and completely different to the usual game flow.

For example, I am stuck in a boss fight with the Mecha-Taur. I beat it again and again in the usually fighting mode. I have now tried more than 50 times ore more to cope with the stupid and boring mini-game - to no effort: the reactions of the mini-game to my movements seem to be almost random. Hence, I will abort playing this game now. What a pity - the mini games are completely useless, boring and frustrating and add nothing to the gameflow.

So basically you suck at the game? To be honest, difficult games are brilliant and it's people like you that force devs to dumb games down because you can't beat them.

You must really really suck the mini games really simple. People like you shouldn't review games if you cannot play them!!!!!!!
