To begin i will say that i absolutely LOVE this beta so far, and i am probably one of the biggest God of War fans out there and an enthusiastic studier of Greek Mythology in general.
One thing that does bother me about the MP so far, however, is the way the stats are set up. For example, i will find a set of armor that i think looks the best, but its stats will not be as good as other sets of armor. Perhaps the primary stat increases can be from leveling up, while the armor has only minor affects on stats.
I know what you mean, i like Cyclopean and Skorpian armor but they don't give good PP as compared to Ares armor..........in every RPG it's like this too(sometimes)
