I found it kinda strange just how hyped up the difficulty of this section supposedly was. It seemed like every reviewer and their mother made at least some mention to it.
I just earned the platinum trophy and I have to say I didn't find this all that challenging. I also did not experience any cheap deaths that were supposedly unavoidable in this section (seriously, where were these?). I did my first playthrough on hard and by the time I reached this spot it was just another combat section. The early parts of the game, that shit was tougher. It felt like you were severely underpowered and always outnumbered.
Was the issue that people who were playing on normal were simply button mashing and then they reached this spot where it was no longer viable and had no idea how to approach the situation? Am I just used to God of War seeing as how I have platinumed every game in the series? I found the Trial of Archimedes was no harder then the challenge rooms in previous God of War games.
Did you find this section especially challenging? If so what made it challenging to you? What difficulty did you play it on? Are you glad they are going to patch it?
