I seemed to be having problems with Kratos reaching the platform right after the 4th column (the one that requires him to spin).
This was really an easy feat in the PS2 and I had passed it numerous times. The Vita version seems almost impossible. I could get as close to the platform but Kratos couldn't even grab the ledge. I've fallen probably more than 30 times. Once I reach quite near the edge but there seemed to be an invisible wall blocking me.
I'm stuck here for like a few hours. I wouldn't mind if I'm stuck in combat. If this is a bug or glitch, then I hope there'll be a patch or something.
The only way I got through it is when that pillar (the one where kratos is spinning) is falling. You really have to see it fall, not shake.
After I completed that part the first time, I saved my game and went back to try it a few times more to make sure it wasn't a fluke. Indeed, after a good 30mins - 1hour of trying other methods, the only way is to: - count 3 swings (the moment you hit and hold O, count it as one) - the moment you see the pillar starting to fall hold it there until Kratos is heading towards the platform and then take that leap of faith.
In layman's terms, do not jump until - you see the pillar falling not "starting to fall/shaking". (to help better visualize, at least let the pillar be tilted like 45 degrees). - Kratos is near the platform. Then jump and hope like mad he lands on the damn platform. But don't congratulate yourself yet until you've completed the crossing otherwise you're back at the start.
