You know what though, go ahead and download an NES emulator and grab any of these games: Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril(the excellent homebrew game, I can't believe some random douche made this, i mean seriously this is like professionally made), Darkwing Duck, or Zelda II. Give any of those games a shot. Then you'll know what really hard games are, and hopefully GoW will then be much easier for you.
GoW is nothing more than a grindfest with tacked on mechanics from the prince of persia games. I played the third one for twenty minutes exactly before I put it down. There's no interest in button mashing to follow through a path a developer sets for you (that is incredibly easy to find and follow).
Ellipses go here.
A tip. Play it in the morning right after you wake up. For some reason things just click together. Another good hard game to play is Predator: Concrete Jungle on ps2 and xbox
I agree. It's a very hard game.
The best gameplay ever ...
