Iâ€™ve bought God of War 2 a week ago. God of War is known as one of the best action-adventure games for PS. Some say Prince of Persia is better, I say they are different: God of War is a more gore, button bashing and slashing kind of game while POP is more a puzzle game with more tactical fighting. But enough about POP itâ€™s a topic about God of War :D
Story: for the ones that have played the first GOW you know that Kratos killed Ares and became the God of War himself. In GOW 2 you start were the first ended you are the GOW and you let your Spartans conquer Greece, the other gods didnâ€™t like this, so u weâ€™re punished (as you can see in the vid). In the first one you had to beat Ares with the help of the god Athena and other gods. In GOW 2 you have to defeat the gods that oppose you (from which one of them is Zeus) with the help of the titans. Although as far as I understand the story for now.
Gameplay: The gameplay is really cool, lotâ€™s of slashing with your blades of chaos and you will later unlock new weapons and magic. A boss always has to be finished tactically, and not just by continuously attacking them. So very good gameplay.
Graphics: this game is also good because of itâ€™s nice graphics, you always have nice backgrounds on the battlefield and the battlefield itself has been worked out in details. The only bad point is that you canâ€™t place the camera behind youâ€™re character (like in POP :P ), but you have a camera thatâ€™s standing in the same position, which led to some problems in the first GOW, but they say there arenâ€™t going to be anymore of these problems in GOW 2 and until now (where I got in the game) theyâ€™re right.
Sound: Really good music, better then some Hollywood movie music.
Now the vids: I began recording right from when I started playing the game, so this are the first 20 min of my gameplay of the game.
This video is the second big battle vs the colossus of Rhodes, in the first 5 min I died, I put that in the video because u could see the difference between the failed and the succeeded battle. Youâ€™ll see that you always have to beat a boss in some kind of tactical way.
I havenâ€™t played much more actually, I got were you had to finish the Colossus of from the inside, then you were betrayed by Zeus. There are rumors of GOW 3 that would come out on PS3 and the main villain in that one would be Kratosâ€™ brother. But that will be a few years waiting.
