I am a first time GoW player. This game is fun and has an ok story. This game did a really good job at scaling the really big bosses and environments really good. It gave me slight vertigo during the scenes with huge objects. Now I would have given this game an 8 or 9 but did not realize the severity of the Trials of Achilles. I could not finish the game due to point mis management. Be warned don't max magic out. Max your main sword, artifacts, magic and health or you will not pass the trials.

Typical GOW game. The graphics are very appealing, the game play is smooth and effective. Sound seems pretty realistic. I find the replay value low to none. The game is moderately easy, and the puzzles not very challenging compared to previous installments. The story was interesting, but it could have been completely told in about 5 minutes, instead it is dragged out tirelessly. I found that the 'upgrading' was awful, not anything worth while and I was disappointed in only one weapon choice, and just only having variants, or elemental attacks. All in all, a pretty disappointing installment. I rate it a 6 because I love the series in general and it is still better than other, similar games.

i loved this game although i thought the 3rd god of war was better. the graphics in this game were sick and it was still just as challenging as the previous games.
