Good

Mindless fun, but a step down

This prequel continues the great combat, but delivers nothing with the story.

Positives: Great brutal combat, tight controls, great graphics

Negatives: Very weak story, lame puzzles, platforming sections that go on too long, no interesting characters or enemies

Summary: This is a very good game, but does not live up to the high expectations after GOW3. This is a step down, but still a good game for GOW fans. The story is completely pointless, but its still good mindless fun.

I played the old games and loved the series. This seems to be a poor attempt at wowing the player for better graphics.

Here are my issues:
1. It has crashed my PS3 4 times since I started playing it. The game will lock up where I have to quit the game and get back into it.

2. In "impress me" with the graphics they Zoom way out so I can see all the stuff that is happening in the back ground. Which makes it so hard to see what I'm doing or attacking I end of losing health.

3. While moving across platforms you need to just and grab onto walls. Some times it takes multiple times to stick.
