This game is an amazing thrill ride from begining to end. As a former captain of the Spartan army, you as Kratos are on a vengeful path to destroy the god of war, Ares. You will encounter traps, monsters, and the occasional puzzle on your adventure, but have no fear because Kratos is more than capable of handling himself with a little help from the Gods of Mount Olympus. The Gods will grant you magical powers through-out the game. The handy and versatile Blades of Chaos, given to you by Ares himself, are capable of massive damage and combos to thrash your enemies. This game will take you through the Aegean seas, across the vast Desert of Lost Souls, all the way to the deadly traps of Pandora's Temple, and all the way back to Athens where your journey comes to an end.

This game is not for the weak at heart though. Blood and gore are a continous treat in this game as you hack and slash through your foes. The puzzles are really well done, nothing too obvious for you to say it's just child's play, but nothing to hard to where you give up and go play something else. This game keeps you coming back for more and has a decent length to it, it can be beaten in a day but you can always make time to eat and sleep too! The difficulties range from Mortal to God and let me tell you, if you think they are just clever calling it "God Mode" you're sadly mistaken, it's incredibly hard.

This game is phenominal. From begining to end you are nothing but blood thirsty for vengeance. You will also encounter boss battles to spice things up. There are only 3 bosses but each one will keep you on your toes and when you defeat them and see how they die you will make your grandmother weep from hearing the words coming out of your mouth. This game is intense to every sense of the word. God of War is a classic game that will be remembered for years to come. It is already spawning a sequel. Make no mistake kiddies, God of War is kickass, and we like it that way.

The first thing I can say about this game is that it's a MASTERPIECE!!! David Jaffe has hit a grand slam with this one. The only problem that I can say about this game is that it's a little short. I beat it in a week but probably could have beat it in a weekend if i was playing it long enough. Don't let this be the reason you don't wan't to play this game. The only legit reason you wouldn't want to play this game is if you don't wan't to see 3D breast or like the gore theme. The combos are pulled off flawlessly. After the first combo I pulled off I was in amazment. If you play the game in God Mode be ready to block. You will not win if you don't block. The enemies can be tough at times, especially in God Mode, but you will find a way to beat them if you are good enough. Overall, the game is great. Go play it and see if you can defeat.....the God of War.
