Nothing Special

Yet another God of war game. Great franchise obviously but this game is the same as any other. You would think that they would evolve the game a little more but I was extremely disappointed with the overall product. Different story but same mechanics and same feel. Horrible camera angles at times. Fun to play if you like the other GOW games but dont expect an upgrade from the previous one.

Great game but feels like a repeat...

Great game but it just feels like a repeat of God of War 3 on another level. The story just isn't as appealing as GOW3. Kratos is more chilled out in this version which ruins the cool feeling of being Kratos. If your a die hard God of War fan you'll like it no matter what. Entry level fan? Stay away and play the originals.

Okay at best!

So I'm a huge fan of the God of War franchise, and was looking forward to playing this game. Usually, not knowing what to expect, I first play at easy level, and progress accordingly, depending on how well I like the action sequences, the storyline, the characters, the weapons development, etc. I have to say, the game had great cinematography, and vivid and imaginitive looking badies, as well as some I've come acustomed to seeing in God of War. But the storyline lacked depth, unlike its predecessors, and I was able to complete this game way too easily on the easy setting (unheard of for this franchise), finishing the entire game in just under a day. So I'm still a fan, but this game will have you yearning for something else to play rather quickly. My advice, rent, don't buy!
