This game is absolutely terrible. You spend most of the game running from destination to destination and engaged in horrible voice acting and wishing it would end quickly so you could get to one of the few fights in the game. You will literally go without unsheathing your weapon for spells of 30 minutes or more multiple times throughout the game. The camera will frustrate you beyond belief. When you finally do get to engage the enemy don't be surprised when a team mate gets in the way and blocks you in around the enemies with no chance to evade. The health bar/heads up display has to be manually turned on or off and the God "Powers" aren't worth the time that it takes to level up through the grid of powers. The game does look okay, but really I think this game was rushed and done very poorly. It had great potential but pales in comparison to some of the other Greek Mythology games that we have seen before. Trust me, don't waste your time.
This game, besides a few transition issues, is really an excellent game. This game has the completely new type of game feel. While it's really a hack and slash game, the plot line and amount of information about the timeline is astounding.... it really pulls you in and makes you feel like you have to know more to play it well. Graphics are really stellar and gameplay is easy and fun. Excellent game. I hope they make another game soon. This game will be an all time classic great.
the best way i could classify this game is that it is a god of war ripoff that just misses.the graphics are topnotch.the gameplay is not bad there just isn't enough of it.interaction with the environment is limited and you have to play for an hour or so in between battles just to reach the next one.and the battle only lasts a minute or so.I played for 7-8 hours altogether and spent maybe 10 minutes fighting.there are just way to many cutscenes. it is like they are nonstop. it takes way to long to do anything even just talking to the other characters.and to top it off it way too linear to be an rpg.you can go here or there but there is really only one way to go.i am one of those guys that looks and explores in every corner. let me save you some time there is virtually nothing to discover.had my hopes up on this one just not for me.
