From the time that I popped in that disc until the Cod of War fish suit was unlocked at the end of the game, I saw no load screen whatsoever. The graphics look like a 360 game, and the voice acting is some of the best you'll ever find.
The difficulty is just enough to make the player work for each and every spectacular finishing move, but at the same time it's easy enough for a novice gamer to hack and slash their way to Olympus. The story is very well thought out as well, and you will meet various characters from Greek mythology in your travels.
To summarize, this game takes all of the Spartan glory from 300, pours it in a blender, multiplies it by 5, and serves a malt so intense that there is no scale on which to measure it. Every other game is a joke; God of War 2 is the punchline.

this game is probably the best game i have ever played. Whenever your not trying to cut people in half with you amazing blades of fire and power you are solving puzzles. In a nutshell its just blood,blades, and a whole lot of mental power. The only thing i didnt like about this game is that sometimes i had to go on the internet and look for walk throughs on how to solve somme of the puzzles. If you do not rent this game then you are definetly going to regret it.
This Game is the definition of brutal. If your addicted to a bloody game with amazing graphics and outstanding game play look no further because GOD OF WAR II is the game for you. You Fight tiny little demons and demons who are the size of a sky scrapper. Kratos is so freakin amazing in GOD OF WAR II and 1000times more brutal as well, he knows no mercy in GOD OF WAR II and if you thought he was brutal in GOD OF WAR expect the Bloodiest Fights in GOD OF WAR II. You rip,slash,tear heads and just humiliate your enemies in GOD OF WAR II. Graphics A+++++ GAMEPLAY A+++++ AUDIO A++++++ STORY A++++++ THE BRUTALITY OF GOD OF WAR II IS THE BEST I'VE EVER SEEN. AND THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST PLAYSTATION GAME EVER MADE!
