Rated 8 out of 10 by toxikkvenum WOW
ok so to start out god of war is a top notch ps2 game that every1 should play. but i can say this, in my opinion this game in the first half is an action hardcore adventure game but the second half when pandoras box part starts this game is a near imposible puzzle game with hard opponents thrown in to make it even harder. if there was no such thing as a guide this game in my opinion would almost be impossible to beat. but that said when you figure out what you are supposed to do this game is absolutely astonishing in every way, i am a lifetime studier and admirer of greek mythology and i found this game right up my alley, and because i know mythology i pretty much knew how the entire game was going to run, right when i heard "pandoras box" i go UH OH puzzles here i come! and when athena was the one telling kratos wat to do i go uh oh bcuz she is a very tricky GODDESS OF STRATEGY.........hint hint. but anyways this game is purely awesome you shud go get it for the ps3 if ya gots 1
Rated 10 out of 10 by AJS0777 This Game is Amazing!
First off let me just say NOT FOR CHILDREN UNDER 18!!!! I can not stress this enough this game has so much Adult content it would be rated R if it was a movie easily. Now onto the Highlites of the game I got this game and put it into my PS2 I instantaniously fell in love I knew this was the game that would make history! The Graphics are outstanding! Every blood splatter every gutting and eye stabbing was brilliantly designed. The flow of this game was smooth even though its a gory Hack and slash it feels so right. Controls are as easy as pie you get tons of wepons and abilities and power ups. Now my Favroite part of this game are the bosses there arnt very many of them but once you get to one you go WOW they are normaly huge and to kill them you must use stratagy and button pressing. This game should be remmbered through out Hystory. I just sold mine because its not one of those games you will play over and over but I bought the second one and it is even better so once you beat this one buy the other. see ya:)
Rated 10 out of 10 by GhostOfSparta best game on ps2
this was in my opinion the best game for the ps2, the only thing that beats it would be GoW2. where to start? the story is amazing it is simple and fluid, the graphics are the best for that year, the sound makes you feel like you are kratos. the puzzles make you want to step back and ponder for awhile but not to the point where you throw the game out the window. the fighting is amazing, so many combos and ways to kill that already dead soldier yet the button configuration is simple sweet and to the point. the cutscenes are fantastic i thought this game was made in 2007 watching them. this game is not what i would reccomend for kids though i mean omg he has (gamestop wont let me say it so) intercourse in the game, what game does that? overall if you love gory fighting games or just want to calm down and blow off some steam get this game it will change your ideas on the genre forever. dont see a therapist for stress issues rip the head off medusa!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Bigmcd3 A game meant for action driven gamers
Ah God of war, slaying thousands of hideous beasts and wanting only revenge for what you lose. This is a terrific game and is why it won the game of the year, years back. Its starts off killing right off the bat and only your chain friends can help you through this stormy ship. The controls are very smooth and the graphics push the ps2 to limits. The action thrilled music goes with batteling very well and the combos just make the overall experience more tenderious to go through. The boss battles, the puzzels, and the cinamatic cutscenes make this a true ps2 title. With more than ten hours of gameplay and very action packed comes a game that uses other ideas and puts them in a all out war. A Devil may cry and Prince of persia combined to make a follow through. God of War is really meant for action driven gamers as thats what you'll find here, A man who lost his nerve and just wants to kill some foul beasts.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Zahl Kratos Could Not Hook Me
God of War seems to be a great series. This being said I feel the first game was cool when it was released but doesn't really have any character once you've seen other games with high paced combat.
Don't get me wrong it's a good game, I just couldn't keep going with the series because it got too bland. Sorry GoW fans, I just look for more in my games.
Rated 9 out of 10 by lbyrd13 Greek Mythology! Why didn't anyone ever think of this before?
God of War is a very unique concept involving Greek Mythology. The stories and characters translate to perfection into an over-the-top action game. The story involves Kratos, a Mortal Warrior serving the Gods of Olympus. For the last ten years he has suffered dearly until the Gods offer him a task, that if completed, his angry past would be forgotten. My favorite part about God of War is easily the jaw-dropping visuals, you will almost spend most of your time staring at the beautiful renderings and level design than on the gameplay. The game's voice acting is also top-notch, you would think you are watching a movie. Last off, my only quibble is the sometimes frustrating camera, which will make you look like an ant while interacting with certain objects like bridges. I would extremely highly recommend this game to any enthusiastic action gamer, even if you are not a fan of Mythology.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Van Helsing Awesome
this game is a must buy. the length of it is sure to keep you hooked to your system for over a month. there are a whole ton of different combos and attacks. the grafics are great. there is partial nudity, but only for like 5 minutes out of the whole entire game. i mean im 11 and this game is probably mature cause of that and the blood. the bosses are insane. in this game, you also have to use your head sometimes or you can't get through. i would say that this is the best game that i have ever played. it is great. the storyline is awesome. the controls are excelent, every button does something and the combinations are awesome. if you get this game, i reccomend to get the second because that one is just as good. there is even ranged attack. the game also has selectes difficulties. i reccomened to take medium on your first time playing it, because it will be, well medium. get this game
Rated 10 out of 10 by ewillis1 Awesome game!!!!
This was one of the best games I've run across in a long time, and I have played many in this style. I believe this has some of the nastiest looking monsters to battle against and some of the best weapons I ever used in a game. Nice twist in the end. Graphics were really superb. The part when he watched God of War attacking the city was mesmerizing to watch. Did I mention I absolutely loved the weapons?! The old grave digger character cracked me up too. The length of the game was just fine, and I finished it in about 10 game time hours the first time through. This game kept me up late and I didn't get much sleep at all because of how much fun it was to conquer each level and annihilate all the enemies. The story kept me hooked, and I have recommended it to every gamer I know! If anyone wonders if women love these games, this one did!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Jose 8 Best Game I've Played
God of War is the best game out for the Playstation 2. The storyline is interesting and keeps the player hooked throughout its entirety. The controls are excellent and fluid, combos are easily executed. The whole idea of upgrading your weapons is just magnificent, its nice to see yourself getting stronger. The game is extremely bloody so i wouldn't recommend it for younger audiences. The puzzles are headscratching but not too hard or too easy so I take that as a plus. The graphics are pretty good, but at some parts more detail would have made the game absolutely flawless. The game is of some length, I sort of didn't like the idea of spending the majority of the game in Pandora's Temple, it would have been nice to explore the outside world a bit more. Overall the game is a must get and one of the best titles of all time.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ummmm.......me willing to pay
I barrowed this game from a friend and during one of the last videos, it freezes. let me put it this way, I like this game so much, I'm buying a new one JUST for that cut scene. very nice game. since its 2010, I realize that there are better games out there......but not many. Its not that long of a game but its better than most because I didn't beat in one go like I do with most games that I get into. and another thing I like is that instead of reading up on all the greek mythology that this game is based off of, the packet in the case gives you the short "reader's digest" version as I call it, so you can keep up with the small details in the game with very little effort and reading. the only problem I have is when you have to raapidly press circle. they should of slowed it down just a very little bit
