It's been a while since I review any games. Mostly because there was just not that many games for me to play. Some games I simply won't buy until I get my hands on my own PS5. Yea, it's still impossible to buy a PS5 for me where I live and for the gazillionth time, I won't buy it from scalpers. Sony take note!
Back to Hades. It took me 16 runs to beat Megaera which is the first boss and I died not long after that and I was shock to find out that I had to do it all over again from the beginning. Obviously I never played a rogue-like games before.
Most games that are too difficult will turn me off and it usually hard for me to come back and keep trying (talking to you Sekiro) but Hades keeps me coming back purely because the variety of ways you can play. In fact, every run will be different and you will eventually find a way to beat a certain level. You have a certain degree of choice, in terms of what perks you choose and weapon but even those can be varied.
I have 'beat' the game twice so far but there are more stories and secrets to uncover. Basically, you never actually finished the story until you beat this game over and over and over again in so many different ways.
Perhaps the best thing about it for me is the fast paced action packed combat. Never felt repetitive and they managed to weave in the story with just dialogues between Zagreus (your character) and the other Greek mythology gods and creatures. These characters are very memorable and 'fun' personalities. I love the lighthearted take on the mythology that have been so overused.
I'll keep playing and I'm going to try to complete as many trophies as possible. Also making sure I pet Cerberus at least once each run. He's such a good boi!
