Like Nothing ever done before

Since the beginning I have always divided games into two categories: straightforward fighting and violence, and games that require thought (battle strategies, puzzles, riddles, etc.). from the cover and description on back I though this was just another Violent game. I first played played it because I was tired of China. and wanted to fight Roman Legionnaire style.

Never before have I encountered a game that challenges my virtues, my heart, my emotions and feelings. everything I chose Jason to say or do is almost exactly what I would say or do if I were in his place. It picked me to a tee. never before have I been in a game that encourages you and begs you only to fight when it's necessary, to be diplomatic and to do the right thing at every turn. it makes me rethink things. I also wonder if Jason and I were once the same man. The gods, who are historically known for their cruelty are acting like my best friends (and I don't really have any). The violence does complement perfectly with the story and the situations.

The Spanish Opinion

La Mitologia Griega nos teletrasporta a un mundo de magia y realidad en la cual la fe del hombre permitia volar su imaginacion y su necesidad de entender su mundo lo invitava crear una religion. El rey del juego junto con sus amigos te invita a ser parte de esa epoca de magia y aventura.

El juego cuenta con una movilidad de muy alta calidad, los graficos son buenos, mas no excelentes, mas aun asi te deja con un muy buen sabor de boca.

La historia del juego es my buena ademas de como se cruzan las vidas de los personajes es muy interesante y adecuada para el juego ya que el momento indicado llegan a la vida del personaje principal.

Control de juego, es facil ademas de practica ya que las combinaciones de ataque son faciles y permiten poder relaizar momentos historicos en el juego.

Las aventuras de nuestros valientes guerreros terminaran? seguiran juntos por mas caminos? aun no lo sabemos.

Surprisingly Fun

so i know this game got shoddy reviews, and i might have agreed with them had i only played it for 5 minutes or not tried to understand it. i actually got really into it, despite some bad one liners from jason in cut scenes. but the carnage is great, you get gamerscore points for dismemberments, decapitations and skull pulping. tho for your first run through, you should turn the difficulty level down to human unless you're some kind of power gamer.
