I just had to do what Kratos did, and that was pledge to the war god. He`s my favorite god amongst the 4. But i`m not a fantool so i love the others aswell =). I prefer raw power over anything else.
Hopefully the new Relics offer more depth to Ares. I think Poseidon4ever said it earlier, Ares is just a bit tedious to play. Not a whole lot of options for him. He's a brute. His combat reflects that. I am going to try some different approaches with him later today but as of now, I had more fun playing the other Gods.
I "main" Ares so I will be searching for his depth until I FIND IT!
PS - Why is the Gladiator Hammer his best weapon?
