Bad

Frustrating but good waste of time

Let me cut to the chase, this is not a good game but is a good waste of time. If you are watching tv or listening to something you can turn off the sound and just finish this. I admit I am not a platform game player but this is just bad. No back story so if you didn't know a bit about the game you you would be pretty lost but for the fact that there is no real story. There are furies kratos is mad at them for some reason they attack and flee until you fight them at the end and its over. Throw in some scene cuts QTEs and repeat. but for the Greek mythology there would be nothing. Well actually there is a water level that looks like its from from Mario bros.2 with the spikes at the top that hurt you. Why does it exist, who knows, why do most of the things in the game exist. For example, you suddenly have a item that allows you to heal(construct and decay ( destruct) random things. Not everything not what you would want just certain things so "puzzles" can be solved. Then you get a random item to create a copy, also used for "puzzles". These aren't puzzles these are annoyances that require you to performs time consuming tasks and no more. This is most of the game. For all of this it make a 6 but then you get to a certain level. I will not say which one you can google it. This proved they just did not care about anything in developing this game but money. Q the guy who says they finished it in one shot and it was easy games are too easy but you know there is something wrong when the developer has to release a patch to fix the game because it is so ridiculous. It is for this the game gets a 3. This developer desires no money and will get none of mine ever. This is the reason I have gamefly, I would have been angry if I paid money for this. I nearly sent this back without completing it it was so bad and if you read comments on different reviews I am not the only one. In summary: If you have time and want to button mash and waste time by all means have fun

I Love the god of war series but they changed the combat system waaaayyyyy to much. you can't do any of his good combos without building the rage meter, and even when ya do the slightest hit brings it back down to nothing and ya have start all over again. game has a good story line but dying from simple fights ruins the rest of it for me

Still a God of War title with God of War gameplay. There is just nothing eye-grabbing or special about this one. I'm not sure this game is worth a full purchase; glad I had GameFly for this one. It's an overall solid game, but it is barred by some glitches and bugs (things I never saw in any of the other games). Kinda disappointing, but still a decent game.
