Good

Great but could be better

I really enjoyed the game and the Boss battles were really exciting. One thing I hated is that every time the game auto-saves, the game will freeze for about 3 - 5 seconds. I didn't get to try the online gameplay because instead of making it free to play online they made it that you have to buy a pass in order to play multiplayer. Very Bad Idea. Overall I give it a 7 out of 10. Enjoy Gamefly Family!!

The Greatest Franchise of All-Time

Many people will argue with you when it comes down to the best video game legacy ever...and I'm not saying that this is right or wrong but only my opinion.

Super Mario, Zelda, Grand Theft Auto, ect...all come up but have their shortcomings in the overall look, for example Zelda had the better gameplay but the story lacked much depth and the same could be said of the rest also

The God of War Saga is now 6 Games deep and ALL are ongoing classics. The first one wowed me more than any game I had played up until that point...the graphics were beautiful, the story was amazing and epic, boss battles were wild, upgrading was fun, and the atmospheres around you sucked you into the environment immediately. I kept thinking the formula would get old but every game is unique and different enough to feel new but stick to the mechanics that made it successful. Also, the game is challenging but never gets too hard to aggregate you.

When you look at the epic journey as a whole I think God of War could win Greatest Franchise Ever!

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.
