Both somehow seem to be the worst they’ve ever been. Swapping every melee except for the knife to a 2 button activation was a bad idea executed poorly.
In general the new button mapping is easy to get used to but somehow seems to fall short of the efficiency of the last games in the series. AI needs a lot of work in campaign as well, it’s been a complaint since GoW 2 and doesn’t seem to have improved.
Love the campaign, multiplayer is it okayaside from the lack of maps, characters and skins (I’m not one of the gnasher fanboys so I’m not as bothered by it). Not sure how these two facets still made it into the game despite that.
