    Pros: Amazing visuals, music score, sound effects, voice acting, over the top action, challenge, tight controls
    Cons: Second half for some, some camera issues

    Summary: The spartan warrior Kratos is being plagued by memories tied into his violent past. Unable to cope with them, he hurls himself off a cliff towards the jagged rocks in the ocean. The narrative shifts back three weeks, retelling the events that had taken ... read more

    Pros: - if you like hit counting style games that would be a pro
    Cons: - innaccurate mythology
    - boring in some instances
    - too much tightrope walking
    - hit couting

    Summary: I honestly didn't care for this game very much. I bought it thinking I'd really enjoy it because it had a lot of greek mythology involved. However, anything that has to do with Greek Mythology is completely innaccurate. If that's not enough to bother ... read more

    Pros: Graphics, sound, story, gameplay
    Cons: Not too much replayability

    Summary: I'm guessing Kratos aka the God of War is a fictional mythological character, well all mythology is fiction, but I mean he's fictional to classical mythology. They kind of just added him in. Well, all mythology is kind of added in. People pass stories ... read more

    Pros: Great combat, huge scope, and a great lead make this a fantastic game.
    Cons: The last few levels feel rushed and unsatisfying.

    Summary: One of the plusses of finally breaking my World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XI addictions is that I now have time to actually play games outside of MMOs. This means I can at least pretend I'm going to start making a dent in my gigantic ... read more

    Cons: It may be a little difficult if you're looking for only a minor challenge.

    Pros: Lots of action. Awesome graphics.
    Cons: Lots of button mashing to the point it can make your fingers sore.

    Summary: This is really a beautiful game. But it is also a button masher. I can see that its lineage as being those button mashers from the arcades. I could see this game racking up the quarters because though at times it is very forgiving there are other times ... read more

    Pros: Excellent visuals and sound along with some fast paced action
    Cons: It's been done, mostly better in other games. Repetition, button mashing

    Summary: GORE, KILLING, BRUTALITY! While I don't mind all three in an action game, like anything too much of it does get kind of tiring. God of War is a good example of things that are overdone or too repetitive. Even the game itself is a cross between things ... read more
