FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

To be honest, when god of war came out i had no idea it even existed. in fact, i only found out this year (2007). And I only found out that because of something GR said in another review about god of wars graphics, for some reason.

The graphics deserved to be mentioned in a review of a game that has no relation to it whatsoever. I hired this game and was surprised at how much better the looks were to any other PS2 game. Not only that, but it's also violent, messy, bloody fun. It's like conrtrolling a movie.

However, this game feels like it's missing something. i'm not entirely sure what it is, but i have a feeling it's just that it's a really simple game. You press X to jump, Square to attack, Triangle to do a strong attack and circle is the grab button. Nothing out of the ordinary there. But God Of War makes up for it with the incredible looks and the violent cinematic ways to kill enemies.

The boss fights are awsome and easy to get the hang of. But it just seems like every boos fight you do is against a giant. First it's a fight against Hydra, then a fight against some giant bull thing that was basically more robot than, well, bull. Kinda like Darth Vadar. Then the last fight in the game is against the god of war (obviously) who is as big as a titan.

Overall, god of war is a fantastic game and is a high reccomendation to anyone who likes seeing blood, well that didn't sound like i wanted it to but you get the idea. So... yeah. Buy It!!!

By The Way, don't cheat if you can't figure out how to do one of the puzzles, they can be the most fun thing you will do on God Of War as long as you don't have a short fuse for games that seem unfair.
