Product Description

Review

"Lavish settings, gorgeous graphics and high style with solid game mechanics 5/5" -- The New York Times

Manufacturer's Description

This action/adventure/combat game makes powerful use of the darkly imaginative world of Ancient Greek mythology, where the realms of the mortal and the divine collide in a pervasive atmosphere of brute force and violence. Playing as Kratos, throughout the game players will wield double blades bound to his body by long chains, weapons symbolic of this vicious world to which he is bound and the fate from which he seeks to escape.

Featuring an hour of cinematic sequences and a deep combat system incorporating context-sensitive actions and an extensive range of combos, GOD OF WAR takes players through various environments that will have them fighting fierce enemies, swinging on ropes, scaling mountain cliffs, swimming through rivers and sliding down zip lines. The result is a unique and thrilling adventure through Greek mythology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take your place on the throne...God of War 26 July 2005
By maffyew
When I first heard about this game, it was the Greek mythology bit that really drew me to it. I am a fan of all the ancient stuff and its about time such a game was made. Once I got onto the games website and began to search it, it took me through all the different places that appear in the game and showed some great little sequences and historical pointers. Everything about this game was begging me to buy it, and I couldn't resist.
The game contains nearly all of the mythological creatures of Greek history and there is no end of fun trying to slaughter them all. From the simple soldiers of the undead to the deadly blade of a turned-bad god, all is fanastic.
The opening sequence throws you straight into the drama and the story ends before you can understand it. If you have played the game, you will understand. There are sections along the timeline of the game that reveal more about the past of Kratos (the gods chosen one) and how he got to that point that we see 20 seconds into the game.
In terms of action, it is absolutely superb. Everything goes into making the heart pump 200% faster than is healthy! The graphic detail is better than any other game I have played. The music changes according to your situation and the events that are taken place, and it unconciously adds suspense and panic into the action on screen. In every room, every bridge and every open space, there is an abundance of enemies to face. No matter how many times you stab a minotaur in the head, it never gets boring. Each enemy has a great way of dying! You can rip the heads of medusas, cut undead soldiers through the middle, tear the wings off vampire-like creatures and so on.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE best action adventure game ive seen in years! 16 Feb. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
God of War is truely amazing. The length of the game is so massive that sony had to put it onto a dual layer dvd (one of only about 2 PS2 games to do this) and i never get bored of it. The way the creators of this masterpiece have incorperated Greek mythology into the gameplay is very clever. At a certain point in the game players find themselves having to decapitate Medusa in order to use her powers to turn enemies into stone!

The combat is very fast and aggressive with numerous combos players can throw out to kill ememies. With larger enemies and bosses players will have to kill them by completing a finishing move with which consists of either a certain button combination or a movement of the analogue sticks.

God of War has a thrilling story line which will keep the player interested right to the end and its shear brutallity and gore makes it a brilliant game!

4.0 out of 5 stars God, I am converted! 19 July 2005
This isn't usually the sort of game I would consider playing. (I'm more of a sims and role play kind of gal myself). So when my boyfriend showed me that he had got it on rental, I was preparing myself for a weekend of boredom and "Oh, how nice dear"s. I was refreshingly surprised.
The storyline follows the story of Kratos, a warrior for the Gods, in his battle against Ares. Ares has turned against the people of Athens and is now wrecking havoc. This game rips into Greek mythology and turns it on its head. You'll get to fight against things such as sirens and minotaurs as well as a few more modern monsters like skeletons. However, the end of the story is one you could see a mile off. There are no clever twists or turns there.
The non-linear style game play is this games greatest strength...as well as its greatest flaw. There are so many paths you can choose from and there's hardly ever any clear indication as to which one to pick. Although this does provide a challenge, it can be a little frustrating to have to retrace your steps. Fortunately, you can't really ever stray too far from the "correct" path.
Of course, for an 18, this game has a great amount of bloodshed and gore! There are tactical combos you can perform, none of which are so complex that you'll forget them just second after you look at them. To make your attacks more brutal but you can also just randomly hit buttons. Also, the game contains plenty of puzzle solving moments. These are at a great difficulty level- not too easy as to just let you solve them seconds but not to hard as to drive you insane with frustration.
The graphics of this game are definitely a selling point. (Look out for the great water effects in Athens's town square!).
I would definitely recommend this game, particularly to those who wouldn't pick up a game of this genre normally. It's highly entertaining and the perfect length as to entertain for a sort period of time and not to drag on forever and ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Game worthy of any PS2 Collection 18 April 2007
By Mr. S. W. Steel VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a game set in ancient Greece and concerns Kratos, a spartan warrior.At the start of the game we seem him throwing himself off a cliff, in an attempt to escape the nightmares he is having. And then the game starts 3 weeks earlier, concerning itself with the events leading up to this point.
God of War is a fighting game, with some puzzles thrown in along with some boss fights.Does this sound like a run of the mill game? It may do, but what God of War does is perform everything so much better than all the similar games that have come before it.This game stands head and shoulders above every game in this genre. But why?
Graphically it is superb.The levels, characters and backgrounds are crisp, well-defined and actually 'feel' solid.Kratos himself is rendered with such care and attention it puts other games to shame. The cut-scenes are excellent too. They move the story along, and tantalise you, rather than bore you like some other games do. These cut scenes punctuate the action and give your weary fingers a break from mashing the joypad!
The music is superb too.It is classic orchestra music that adds to the atmosphere perfectly - it doesn't interfere with the game play or cut scenes, but adds to the experience of the game.Couple this with the superb voice acting and you have a game that has covered all its bases in the sound department.
The moves Kratos performs are genuinely exciting to watch - stylish and bloodthirsty. As the game progresses he enhances his weapons, and his magic and i was genuinely excited about levelling-up and learning the new moves. The finishing moves are brilliant, and all the bigger characters have different killing moves.
