I'm finding the combat a little difficult to get used to. In Hellblade it was so seamless and intuitive, I really loved it. This one is a little less so, but it's still an improvement over the previous games... most especially because it hasn't totally abandoned the manic crowding and over-the-top gory nature of the previous games. There's just less random button mashing in this one. It's much more strategic. I'm finding the response rate a little on the slow side, though. Not to keep comparing it to Hellblade, but Hellblade got so much right I'm gonna, however, by comparison, the response rate for Senua was much better than it is for Kratos.
Also, I'm really enjoying Christopher Judge as Kratos. He's got a great voice, and I feel it's an improvement on the character. Now it feels vaguely soulful, lending a sort of gravitas to the character. It might also be the writing for the game.
Anyway, I'll stop here, and save it for a Sassy Review when I've finished the game. Needless to say, I'm really enjoying it so far, and though I'm terrible and have died a tonne, it's fun.
Now I have a tonne of work to catch up on. Hope you all have a great day.
