OK Im 34 in 2011 I am a casual gamer at most. This was the most awesome game ever. I dont really remember it being hard to beat even on hard bu thats just because I couldnt put it down. Simply said this game is sick. God of war 1 and this came out around the same time and Im thinking this one was the better of the two.

First off, you will not have an easy time at playing this game. In my opinion, the second level is one of the hardest simply because you have few skills and pitiful health.

The storyline is simple, but rich and there is a great twist at the end.

The most amazing thing about this game is the fact that it has such a great combat system. Each new enemy has a different strategy and its own way to destroy it. Each combo you learn is invaluable in several situations. I never once felt like i wasted my essence purchasing a weapon upgrade. The acrobatics were simple to do, but could do more harm then good if used in the wrong situations.

A hint to getting a good mission rank: Always finish the level with full ninpo and use those spells sparingly.

Also, actively search for the golden scarabs. Eventually they get you the most powerful weapon in the game, the Dabilahro!!!!!

This game is very fun and the graphics were amazing.
The game play was challenging in some parts, and it isn't for gamers looking for an easy game.There are tons of techniques you can use and the fights are unbelievably cool!
There are also many weapons usable during the game, however i gave my rating based mostly on the story line. It was cleverly thought out and very entertaining.

i highly suggest renting this game....its well worth it and you want be disappointed
