Yeah this part was difficult. It took me like 20 tries before I figured out I had the amulet of uroboros which slows down the enemies or has the floating in the air for a few seconds for me to get alot of hits in.

This is the trick to use no need to patch it. Making things difficult in a game challenges me as a player to resolve it and I feel better afterwards knowing I accomplished it.

AMULET OR UROBOROS. I can’t really stress this one enough since it not only sets up an enemy for a decent combo, but also buys you just enough time to use Orkos Heart so the shadow Kratos can suppress some enemies for you. Nailing the time for parrying the gorgons is also very important, and it’s ok to make use of your magic so long as you keep track of how many gorgons you have in order to get some magic back. I had to try a lot, but I beat it on hard mode.
