    The Official Platinum Difficulty Discussion Thread

    (banner image pending)

    This thread is first and foremost a discussion thread, but it also has a poll. Please do not vote in the poll until you have earned the platinum trophy for this game. That being said, we invite you to post below and discuss the difficult aspects of the game, even if you do not yet have the platinum trophy in your collection.

    When you post, give more than just a number. Give reasons why you feel the game is easy or hard. What parts of the game are easy or hard? Were there collectibles? Were they a pain? Is there a required online component? How easy or hard is the online portion? What is the most frustrating part about the game?

    Once you have obtained the platinum trophy, feel free to return to this thread and post your official vote. Say something to the effect of "I give this a 2 because there was only one tough spot and the collectibles were very easy to find". At this point, you may also add your vote to the poll.

    The poll is public, meaning everyone can see how you vote.

    Obvious spamming will not be tolerated. Moderators will take action against obvious spammers as necessary*.

    *NOTE: This Official Platinum Difficulty Discussion Thread and others like it constitute an Official Site Feature here at PS3T.com. Misuse of this thread or this poll may count as an abuse of a site feature which is expressly forbidden in the site rules. Moderators will give punishments as necessary.

    voted as easy. probably a 3/10
    could be tougher for someone brand new to the series, but the learning curve is a lot smaller than other games in this genre

    basically, this game is easy. There is only one hard part in the entire game I'm sure everyone has heard about the Trial of Archimedes. It's not nearly as hard as the reviews say though, so don't worry. Collectibles are easy to find and everything is pretty straightforward trophy-wise.

    I gave it a 1/5 - Very Easy.

    The fact that you can get plat in under 10 hours makes this game look ridiculous. There should have at least been a trophy for beating the game on titan difficulty and some challenges. There are checkpoints during boss fights and if you die your health completely refills. The only place people struggle with is the trial of archimedes in chapter 28, but after a few tries it is totally doable. Since there is chapter select you can mop up trophies easily. Easiest God of War so far.

    I don't buy that... Most of the GoW games didn't even make you beat it on Hard difficulty... This one seems easy enough but still not the easiest...

    Easy - This was quick and mostly easy platinum. Most trophies are story related or just finding collectibles which are easy to find.

    Voted Easy. Nothing was hard in this game. Hard was so easy when compared to Gow 3 and the trial of archimedes is completely over rated. Its not even hard. Managed to beat it on my second try also i got the platinum in 11hrs

    Voted Easy as well; once you realize how to mix magic, blocking and button-mashing, which feels different than in other GoW games, you're golden. The hardest part of the game is the Trial of Archimedes as I found Level 1 to be the hardest to go unscathed. Level 2 and Level 3 are a breeze though. Fun, quick platinum.

    2 Only the trials took a few tries on hard have to agree with other comments about the lack of challenges that have always been in other GOW games, great game though, but definately the easist GOW plat to date.

    Voted easy , I had a lot of deaths on hard difficulty but the checkpoints make it not so bad . I had a hell of a time beating this flying dragon thing in chapter 8 or 9 but after that the game was a breeze , fun and easy game

    I voted this game as EASY because that is exactly what it is! Might be harder for a new fan of the series but for anyone who has played this series before... by far the easiest game in the series

    Voted easy. Nothing really being to hard. The trials took about 5 tries other than that everything can be done with minimal tries.

    Very Easy

    Wow this game is shoooort to complete everything and that sucks. I don't know what the trial of arch was like before but it isn't hard anymore I suppose got through on second try after my controller died on me during the second battle which ended up killing me. The collectibles would hold some people up if they don't search all the areas

    I voted moderate on this one. It was challenging in some places but I was overall disappointed with this installment. The game was short, weapons were crap and why the mp!?
