God of War • Complete all the Trials of Muspelheim
Well, that was exactly as satisfying as I thought it would be. It was these trials which first seeded doubt in my mind that I’d ever get around to obtaining platinum on God of War, but a bit of patience, a lot of skill and just a sprinkle of luck got me through in the end.
The hardest part was largely the final stage of the trials, where you have to obtain three keys in order to get to the endless wave stage of the trial. The final stage itself was quite easy – it seems like you only need about fifty kills to finish it off (I got between 75-80), which makes the final battle kind of a catharsis following some of the most fiddly encounters of the game so far (second, perhaps, only to the Valkyries).
I didn’t stop there though, ending up with another trophy for my efforts in completing all the Dwarven favours. The final favour also doubled as a mechanism to free one of the three dragons in the game – so a quick guide and a bit of a session tomorrow should see me knock that trophy on the head too.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. This is a great, great game.
