This is a solid game in its own right. If you enjoyed GOW, Deadspace, Darksiders, Dante's Inferno, then you will enjoy this. I guarantee it! There are no spoilers in this review. It is a general overview of the game itself. The first item is that this is NOT a God of War calibre game. It lacks the polish and big budget that the GOW series has. Having said that, it's not a GOW rip off either which so many have claimed that this game must be. Personally, I don't have a problem with GOW style games and I can easily admit that Clash of the Titans is in the same genre as all of the above mentioned games. I really enjoy this style of game. The graphics are ok for what they are. They do not push the PS3 but they are not sloppy and the scenery is very nicely detailed. The characters look as they should and the various enemies and monsters are what they should be. The gameplay itself is solid if a tad linear. This is to be expected given that it's based on the remake of the original movie, which I enjoyed. I like the combat itself. It's fluid. It works well. You gain a variety of weapons and some work better than others on certain types of enemies so some thought is required. Reinforcing your weapons is very easy and straightforward. In fact, all the submenus in this game are easily accessed and understood and you can do this at anytime. The controls too are easily mastered and the only real difficulty is timing whether you're attacking or dodging. This is what gaming for fun is supposed to be like. I believe this game was designed more in mind for a younger gamer as opposed to an adult gamer such as I am or perhaps on second thought, it is more of a game that both a father and son could sit down and enjoy together if for different reasons. It's categorized as a 1-2 player game but it's some time before you get the option of joining in for some co-op play. That's okay too as the missions before that point are short enough that you can pass the controller back and forth so you all get a feel for the controls. Primarily these mission should be considered training missions. The fun really begins with the co-op play. The boss battles are a blast and completing the various missions are not overly long timewise but there are a lot of them to keep you wanting to move forward. The voice acting is what it is. It's okay but there's no big talent here as in other franchises. The special effects are nice too and background music are more than satisfactory. My only real criticism of this game is that of the load screens between the various sections of the game. There are a lot of them. Everytime you leave one area for another, you get a load screen. Granted, it's quick but we're all used to playing in open levels now with the only load screens showing up when you leave one level for the next one. As I said this is not a God of War game, but it is a good solid game in its own right and I'm pleased to add it to my collection as I will play this game again, and again, and again. Just as I do GOW, Deadspace, Darksiders, Dante's Inferno, and now Clash of the Titans. Enjoy!
