This is one of those games where you realize while playing it that you should probably go outside and do something else. Its just like why am I spending time doing this? It feels really wooden and uninspired. I've played about 2 hours and don't think I can take any more.

Boss Fights are Cool but the Rest is kind of Boring- Plus No Blood like GOW 3- Game just feels out Dated more like a 19.99 Game- So just wait for a price drop pick it up for 19.99 in 90 days then enjoy the boss battles- Thanks

The game obviously draws from the movie and other cool things, such as God of War. Now, I will not be comparing this game to GoW the whole time so fanboys, stop reading now! haha. Anyway here you go:
Pros: Graphics- surprisingly good, not Uncharted 2 quality, but good levels of detail throughout.
Controls: A natural feeling adventure/Hack N' Slash control scheme.
Gameplay: Diverse monsters and huge bosses (Scorpions, skeleton monsters, harpies, you get the mythical theme by now) literally TONS OF WEAPONS; Axes, Claws stolen from monsters, harpy wings, two handed spears, shields, halberds, swords, etc. The finishing moves are really well animated and bring a slightly more brutal feel to the adventure. Which is always welcome :)
Not the most "original" adventure, but, I really love this game & It's a LOT OF FUN!!!
You need to at least rent it to form an opinion
So, overall, the borrowed characteristics from more well known games are blended in very well, and the story makes the game its own breed of adventure
