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.
If you compare this game to other games in the same genre, it is still at the top of the list. That is easier said than done though. I still compare it to the other 3 in the franchise and that may be why I am giving this a 7.5 (can't use half points on the official score as you know).
Fact is, by all accounts it is a very good game and I can't quite put my finger on what's missing but it just doesn't have that wow factor that the first 3 had. Its good enough graphics as usual with this franchise. Its ease of use with the buttons is good too, again like usual. But there is just something missing, it just doesn't pack the punch the other 3 did and that is too bad because this is my all time favorite series of games.
So in all fairness you would be missing out if you didn't play it and you will have a lot of fun and enjoy it, but if you are like me, you waited so anxiously for the release of Ascension and like me, you just might find yourself underwhelmed.
