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.
