3 What's going on?detonator | 03/06/2013 | See all detonator's reviews (8)Just finished the single player portion of this game.The good:-Game play was fun, combat/puzzle sections well placed-Great graphics and surroundings-New combat features welcome, kept the fighting freshThe bad:-Ok so my main issue here is the storyline. Apart from a brief intro cutscene that leaves a little to be explained you then spend hours battling through monsters with no real idea of what you're doing or why you're doing it. Coupled with quite a few jumps through time (again done quickly and not fully explained) made for very confusing plot/storyline that was hard to follow. I'm sure if I played through again it may make a bit more sense but you shouldn't have to do that with a game. I feel as though you had to play all the other God of War games to really understand whats going on here which I think is a mistake.. a game should be designed so that anyone can pick it up. Also as it's chronologically the first game in the GoW series you think it would spend a bit more time explaining things. The thing I loved about GoW3 was you could play it and really enjoy it without ever having played any of the other games. Not only was the gameplay fantastic but it also felt like you were watching an epic movie.. so many decent cutscenes that really kept you in the know.I didn't try the multiplayer yet so can't comment on that (if I'm honest I don't buy a GoW game for multiplayer), however if you have some cash and want to buy this but haven't played GoW3 I would recommend that game instead.
