DS2 is a good game but it could have been a lot better espically for a God of War knock off usually I write long reviews but for this game I'm just gonna say I would put it in your gameQ but just lower to the bottom it's a good game to play just not one I would be in a hurry to play!
This game didn't do it for me. Looking at the previews I thought it would have a cool story and be similar to God of War, but was I wrong BIG TIME!!! The story line was horrible and hard to follow the graphics were even worst then the story line!!! Game play was bad, but I only played the game for maybe 30 minutes or so and then it was turn off placed into the mailing sleeve and back to Gamefly it went.
I always like to finish my games, this one's hard.. as it's long and mostly boring.
If you enjoy pushing stones around, you may like this game. It's a bit like Skyrim meets Lord of the Rings: War in the North if you played that. But way more boring. And I think the controls are fairly bad. Graphics don't look quite as good as you would have hoped.
The story isn't very engaging, maybe just slightly interesting. The combat can be fun, it can also be frustrating. The loot system is one of the simpliest and easiest to use I've found though. Thank god for that at least.
