Horrible

A Disappointment to the GoW Series.

I was very excited to play this game until I actually played it. Keep in mind that I didn't play any of the multiplayer stuff, mostly because God of War hasn't exactly been for multiplayer. The plot was EXCEEDINGLY boring, the epic boss fights were gone (except for the first boss fight), and the whole concept of charging your gauge to attack was flawed. What got me the most was the setting of the game was completely plain for GoW, no epic back drops or cool labyrinths to go through. They removed the cool power ups/weapons that you got in the old games and replaced them with more "puzzle like" up grades that just allow you to move objects and have a little battle potential. All in all I felt that they really messed up this last game and got away from what made GoW so popular in the beginning. Still worth trying if you're a die-hard GoW fan which I am not.

Title says it. This is worse than the PSP games that they moved to the PS3. It's an okay game so I will give it a 6. I had never played them so I went through over last 2 months or so and played every GOW. This is the only one I didn't care about the story line at all. Just wanted to get the game over because I played all the others. t's okay as a game but the way the camera pans out in several fights is pretty dumb. Oh I am playing on a 70" TV and Kratos is 2" big. Really? I would hate to see what he looks like in those spots on a smaller TV. Don't get me wrong, it's worth a play through but if you haven't played the others I suggest you give them a try and don't just write off this franchise because of this game.
