Assuming you've slayed your way round Athens, Mount Olympus and shown Harpies, Siriens and Minotaurs you know what to expect..... wrong...
Following the first 'God Of War' bloodfest , Kratos, again develops a nice dislike for a variety of Gods and beasts. Armed with his 'Blades Of Chaos' he sets about bringing down Zeus and his cronies.
The familiar puzzle filled storyline captivates you and demands that once you save the game its all about 'I-wonder-whats-round-the-next-corner....' instead of hitting the power button as it ticks over to 2am.
The large number of creatures and the many blood soaking ways to dismember and beat to death with its own arms have still not ceased to amaze me! Its not disgusting, its funny and comical at times. I mean, yes its bloody, but you're fighting a 20ft Cyclops, its not exactly going to incite playground violence! The 18 certificate is more than appropriate and understandably so.
Its repeated playability has made it an instant hit and the special moves, gorgeous graphics and unbeatable gameplay once again secures this as one of the greats in platform hack'n'slashers.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to pull the wings off a Harpie then rip a cyclops' eye clean out!
You need this in your life!!
