I wanted to share a little video I made at Memorabilia Nov ’10 at the NEC. As you know there was a playable demo of Warriors: Legends of Troy (WLOT) there. It was a combat demo featuring Achilles.
As discussed in the last blog. Shield attacks are very important in WLOT as they allow you to break the guard of your enemy and then use a finishing move. One cool thing is that you can now finish string combos with a choice or either charge or shield attack. This raises the number of available strings for each character above a normal Musou game (usually we can only finish a combo with a charge move).
Depending on the situation and the type of enemy you are facing you need to choose the best way to finish your combo. For example if you are surrounding by shielded enemies you might use the slash, slash, slash, shield combo which results in a round kick that breaks the guard of all the surrounding enemies. If you have alot of enemies in front of you without shields you can use the slash, slash, slash, charge move which has a wide arch of damage in front of you.
Anyway, here is the little video displaying Achilles fighting against thin-air to show his move set. Sorry for the bad quality of the video and shakey camera (and the bad text lol!).
