I'm playing the Ultimate Edition on PC and... I don't like it. The combat seems pretty shallow, platforming and puzzles are a waste of time, the fixed camera is bad both for exploration and for fights unlike GoW. Am I missing something? What's the general opinion about this game? I'm doing the second Titan boss so there's a lot more content. Is it worth to go on?

I actually beat this game a while back, surprised there isn't another topic for it. Honestly, no. The magic system is somewhat decent, but what the game really lacks is anything to do beyond "hit it until it dies". There are no real grapples, no other interesting mechanics. Just hit things until they stop moving, bonus points if you do it without getting hit.

It's considered a decent 'transition' game for people wanting to get into the genre, but like adventure games with stories as well. The game was quite well regarded, but doesn't have a good reputation amongst the genre-fans. The sequel is arguably worse. The DLC of the sequel however is apparently really, really good.

Ok, it's not for me, then. Thankfully I started the action genre with Killer is Dead and MGR, these (bad) hybrids put me to sleep. GoW created the perfect formula, but it's very hard to find good western action titles. I read about Warrior Within and DmC in this forum, are there others like those?
