Satisfied, but not Impressed

I assumed it was going to be somewhat like God of War, and it is. God of War, however, being a better overall game.

The combat styles reminded me somewhat of 300 (the movie) with the occasional slow motion and lots of chopped limbs / heads.

The graphics were better with game play then they were with the cinematics, which I thought was pretty funny.

6 out of 10 for several reasons.
Pros:
Good combat styles
Above average game play graphics
decent story line
Naked girls in chains

Cons:
Cinematic graphics were extremely poor
Weapon choice is limited to a shield 1h sword / axe and 2h weapon.. every level has their own but you're stuck with what they've got the whole level
Game was too short.. I beat it in 5 1/2 hours of playtime (it's recorded with every save).

Rent-able..? yes..
I wouldn't purchase this game though

Bad gameplay

Rent this game if you want to make yourself miserable. I liked the story, but the gameplay is one of the worst. It is just a waste of time. I couldn't stand it, and I returned it back in the middle of the game even I was wondering what would happen next.

I would have rather heard Arnie that this guy they got as Conan. The graphics are " OK ". The fighting gets sluggisg but not BAD. The story is kind of mis-leading and almost " uninteresting ". They should have really made his " ALTERNATE GOAL MORE ABOUT HIS ORIGINS ". Its always better when the main characters entire family is slaughtered and you re out for BLOOD ".The naked women add some " ATTENTION ", but after the first few rescues they get kinda boring. Sometimes I didnt even rescue them and kept going. They stand up and tease you but you cant actually but the " BAM TO THE BOOTY ".
This game is a definite GOD OF WAR rip off, but its NO GOD OF WAR. A definite rent...dont BUY THIS TITLE.
