You will quickly discover that the true star of God of War, at least in the early segments, is not Kratos or his son Atreus, but your Leviathan Axe. You throw it, and then you can recall it to your hand with a satisfying thump.
You can do this from anywhere, and I do mean anywhere. Initially I did some experiments to see how long I could go leaving the axe stuck somewhere, but no matter how far I went, I could always just hit triangle, and after a few clangs and clunks, it would always return to my hand.
God of War Sony A few basics to know: If you line up enemies, you can hit a bunch of them off a single throw and return. Sometimes you will have to solve puzzles by hitting things on a here throw.
An L1 light throw will mean the axe will bounce off the enemy and land on the ground. An L2 throw will leave the axe stuck in an enemy until you recall it.
It does a lot more damage this way. The first two runic axe moves you get are great, and can potentially carry you through the entire game. Melee combat is relatively straightforward with the axe.
A heavy attack will bounce lighter enemies up so you can air-combo them, GOW-style. The best damage combo is light-light-light-heavy, and that can be upgraded later for big bonus damage. The other piece of the axe puzzle is what you do without it.
God of War Sony Your shield is a valuable tool, with or without the axe. I would say the other barehanded moves are less important, however. The big advantage of fighting barehanded is that you are able to more quickly stun enemies.
Once maxed, you can execute them. Hopefully this is enough to get you started, and you fall in love with the Leviathan Axe like I have.
