What A Disappointment :(

The God of War trilogy was my favorite game series of all time. I absolutely loved the story line and the interaction in it. I am a huge fan of cutscenes for some reason, and I felt truly involved in Kratos' journey throughout the years. However, this game was just... I can't even describe it. First of all, I might have gotten a glitchy disc. I am at a VERY easy part of the game, but my character is not able to move from the gas... thing in time to complete a needed maneuver. I have had many others try it as well, none could succeed. Besides that, there is literally no explanation about what is going on in the game. I am over a third of the way through and the only cut scene was at the beginning. There are weird creatures and I do not know what they are. These gas thing is COMPLETELY unexplained and is cool, graphics-wise, but needs some work. The other odd thing was the climbing has been redone. I do NOT like the new style of climbing. I do not have as much control over direction OR speed, which makes time trials much more frustrating. The combos are the same, the fighting is identical, and the gameplay is similar... but this game falls WAY short of the legacy that is GoW. So very bummed.

Good

Rip the controller in half hard at times.

Just finished this. The trial of Archimedes is lame hard...I screamed the F word a few hundred times and almost launched the controller through the TV...the waves of the same baddies gets old but some of the boss battles are great. Pretty sweet overall and worth a play.

First, the updates wouldn't download and install. Then, in the middle of playing the game, it froze and the loading symbol was flashing. I haven't been able to play the game since. Glad I didn't decide to keep the game.
