Still Top Notch After All These Years

Fun, original, perfectly challenging, BRUTAL, and gruesome.

The redone graphics look outstanding. It appears that all of the models have been improved in detail to up the resolution. The pre-rendered scenes from the PS2 are in their original quality, which takes you out of the game, but it's a great contrast to see how much they improved it for this version.

Both games hold up. If these were originals instead of re-releases, they would still be Top 10 games.

Classic Game - Why the terrible cut scenes?

The game itself is classic. All whom have played know what a quality game this is. And if you have never played GoW 1 or 2 then you are in for a real treat. The only part I am upset about is the cut scenes are still in the original format instead of being update for HD like the rest of the game.

What's not to love ?

Two of my all time top 5 games, remastered in HD. Nuff said.

It's been commented elsewhere, but the only thing approaching a flaw in the port is that the cut scenes are DVD quality, not Blu-Ray. Also, Kratos' shadow looks kinda weird on some terrain. Yes, I'm struggling that hard to find a flaw.

If you've not played the true owner of the GoW moniker (360 owners take note!), or even if you have, this is a must play. That a ~5 year old game is in the running for my PS3 Game of the Year says a lot !
