Ok. First, this game is fun. Now forgive me because i just finished Uncharted 2 so my review may be a little swayed. This is a fun action game. Plenty of good fights early on.
I wouldn't say this is an "easy" game. Some of the early fights can be rather difficult for the uninitiated. My wife is a mild gamer and any action game that she can't button mash and proceed in she will give up. That being said there is a lil bit of strategy to some of the fights.
Graphic wise, it's alright. Definately not mind blowing or anything. The cutscenes are pretty nice, but I wasn't blown away.
Again, this is a fun game. Things are always happening and chances are you will come to a point or two where you will be challenged. There is definately something to build on here. Those God of War fans out there will be happy to play this to tide them over for the next few weeks til GoW3 comes out.
I did enjoy playing this one, but personally was slightly let down. Of course my standards have been readjusted after playing Uncharted 2. This game definately worth the rental. Good luck and safe hunting!!

If you like God of War then you will like this game. Great action and movement with the character. Great colors and ease of directions. I will recommend purchasing this game as soon as possible. It will make a great addition to your collection.
This game is probably the best case and point of what is to come between the comic book, and video game industry. And frankly I cannot wait!!! I actually like this game better than Bayonetta, the source material is fantastic and it is a very meaty game. If you are writing and playing it to compare it to other games you are doing it for the wrong reasons. The game mechanics are there for a reason, it is the best way to tell the story. I believe this was one of the few games that were delayed until after the holiday season and I am glad the time was well spent tweaking the gameplay. The way the graphics emulate the comic art style is phenomenal if you have ever been into comic books you will be excited by the truth of the interpretational art style. The only thing I can complain about though is there should've been more meat in the dialog to flesh out the emotion in the plot, some reviews criticize how the game plateaus after the first hour and there is some truth in it. But make no mistake it is a gamers game, and for PS3, and XBOX360 gamers it is definitely one to check out!!!
