So, we may go around the boards a little bit on who would win in Deathstroke versus Shiva with people arguing over fight time, hand-to-hand combat skills versus weaponry and tactics but I have just completed both fights with Shiva and Deathstroke in Batman: Arkham Origins. And I am pissed!
Wanna know why?
Shiva is ridiculously easy to beat!
And I don't understand why, she is the third top ranking martial artist in the DCU and she has beaten the crap out of Batman before but apparently in the video game a) she needs a team of ninjas to back her up and b) It's like three hits and she goes down. SHIVA. Lady Shiva, top most badass assassin ever. In the game she talks about her master, foreshadowing events that will happen in Batman: Arkham City. But it pisses me off that one of the most badass characters, with dubious morals, is relegated to boring, very easy gamer villainess. She comes after Deathstroke in the game and yet was, out of the two of them, the easier character to beat.
And yet Deathstroke, I died like six-seven times fighting him before I beat him. He fought on his own and used a variety of techiques and he was one of the beginning 'bosses' so should have been easier to defeat but apparently not. And I just don't get it. I really, honestly don't. The only thing I can think off is they have decided that as Shiva is a woman (2/8 of the Assasins are women btw.) then she should be easier to beat compared to the big "meaty" male character. BUT SHE SHOULDN'T BE EASIER TO DEFEAT. THERE SHOULD BE SOME EFFORT.
I JUST WANT TO RAGE QUIT THE GAME. FOR PETES SAKE A SWAT TEAM WAS HARDER TO TAKE DOWN THAN SHIVA. SHIVA. SO ANNOYED.
