This game has it all: action, fights, gruesome details (blood splater and gore), fan service for the guys and a heck of an unforgetable plot / story.
Ok the main character is just such an awsome badass... top 10 best action heroes up until today.
Don´t mine that it´s an aventure game... it´s also packed with action around every corner and clever yet not imposible puzzle solving. You start this game knowing practically nothing about the story but after the first cinematic sequence you watch and all troughout playing the game, you are left always wanting more. Even finishing the game will leave you with a taught like: "Dude, are they coming out with sequel or something?" The game also makes it worth your while to unlock extras by coming back and playing the game again in different dificulty level or succeding extra chanllenges; for example the game offers videos as to the making of God of War, special bonus levels with fun challenges to approve, character galleries, scrapped ideas prior to and during the game's development and awsome artwork to unlock.
Set in ancient mythological Greece (you know what your in for) where depraved gods rule and the land is in a quasi state of permanent conflict. You play as Kratos, a champion for the gods on Mountain Olympus and with a score to settle with the god of war Ares. His a take no prisoners, shoot / slash first ask questions later type of fellow. So you pretty much get the idea that this game is for a bit more mature audience (that and the apparent taste for the ladies Kratos has on his spare time).
No more wasting time... it´s a "must play game and comment with your friends later" kind of deal. It will take you epic places in myhology such as the Agean Sea, Athens (Greece), a desert, an impregnable fortress and down to the pits of Hades itself; backed up by a soundtrack the immerses you into the background as if you were watching an epic movie and the hero's story unfold by your own hand as trumpets are inspiring determination into your being to continue on. A must play game, no doubt about it.
