No dodge/counter button?

19 replies 1408 views Edited May 31, 2013

Hey,

 

As a huge fan of UC3s melee: I found it a bit odd when I couldn't dodge the runners hits. Is it possible that Joel can only do it against Humans? Or is it perhaps not in the game and spamming square is the way to go?

 

Discuss!

Most likely when you first meet the human hunters, they'll teach you how to counter with triangle. There is definately a counter button.

@AKyemeni
I really really hope so. The square mashing felt a bit meh. It is fluid and rather cool but come on:

I play UC3 several times, just countering and acting all Bruce Lee on people as they never die, it feels fun XD. I want to like take out an entire gang of humans and then just have 1 be alive and brawl with him.

You can counter the Clickers attack with a shiv. Joel stabs them in the neck to get away. Currently uploading the full demo to my 2nd account. You can see that there.

@ Aldro - U3 has a counter button, but the melee looks clunky & feels like an Arkham City rip off...Smiley Frustrated

 

I'd rather stick with mashing Square. UNLESS it can be done right

I knew there wasn't a counter button! I knew it! That dodge animation from e3 was just like that to make it look cool.
