    Its an immense enviroment with fast action and good graphics. It also has a very good story and feature set in terms of magic, weapons, and abilities. Its just a sweet game.

    Well do you even like the genre? (DMC,Prince of Persia,Ninja Gaiden)

    Not everybody is going to like a certain game.

    Same here. All my friends enjoy playing it, but I guess it's not my cup of tea. It was really cool for the first hour, but it kinda died off for me.

    May be that not the kind of game you like. To me this game is awesome because it has an amazing combat style, the graphics are cool, the greek ambient make it feels diferent, the caracter has attitud, the storyline is different from what we have seen so far in many games that appeal the same public, and many other things that make this game a great game. Before R:FoM I really do not like FPS, because they make me dizzy and find them kind of boring, but after play it I start to enjoy this kind of games. So may be is just matter of wat kind of games are you looking for.

    For me it's the storyline that comes first, it just seems very immersive and i love the whole greek mythology thing.

    Secondly comes the gameplay, it seems very easy to pickup and unlocking the new weapons and abilities are a lot of fun.

    And finally there is the graphics, they were top of the range on PS2 and the depth of field was pretty huge especially in GOW2

    So what if he doesn't like this game?, sure God of War is awesome but still he is entitled to his opinion, if he thinks God of War sucks then deal with it, if you actually read the thread you would have realised that he doesn't like the action genre as a whole, If you don't like FPS's much like me then how are you going to like Halo? Everyone has their own taste in video games just learn to deal with it.

    Don't be childish, just cuz you like a given game doesn't mean everyone has to. I personally love POP and looking forward for more, GOW on the otherhand was lacking something to me personally, but I'll still play the entire game; I'm hoping that void will be filled further into the game.

    I thought God of War was really good, but after you save the topless woman from falling off a cliff and head into the desert, the game started getting repetitive. Too much puzzle-solving, it broke the action.

    God of War II, however, is beyond awesome through and through.

    I wish there were more games like GOW, and the old Resident Evil's, with action and puzzles. I absolutely love the puzzles that are thrown in, same as with Silent Hill.

    I think it's obvious why so many people like the God of War series but, for me, it's simply because it's such a visceral experience. The combat is fluid and you can easily rack up crazy hit counts pretty easily. It just makes you feel like a bad ass while you play it. Add in the amazing bosses and you just can't go wrong.

    It's simply a game that's not for you, big deal.

    Move on and cherish something else.

    first not everyone likes the game i think it has only sold like 2-3million and the second one i am not sure but there are many other IP's out there that sell much better why not ask why people like those. for me i do like it why? because it has a great story, some nice adult violence and subject matter, it is set in the time of the romans and the gameplay/controls are top notch, great battle system and some great combos to be done. if you don't like it or find it boring then try something else more action packed.

    It's kinda like a game of Tekken, but you go through this amazing story with these super huge maps. I think when i finished it, i only had like 2 load points in the entire game. This game is one bad-ass peice of gaming. This and kingdom hearts have the same type of game play, I must just love these types of games.

    Storyline and graphics aside, I thought it was pretty average. The violence and nudity was cool but it was too repetitive. Ripping a medusas head off is cool the first couple of times but after that...meh. Low amount of bosses, last boss felt like I was playing a different game.

    Though I guess GOW2 improves on all that so I might pick up that when it becomes greatest hits. DMC3 > GOW imo, will see if GOW2 will dethrone it.

    It is one of those AAA games that just does so much right. But just because it is a well produced game doesn't mean you'll enjoy it if you don't like the genre.

    The story is one of my favorite things about it, but obviously that won't come into play until you are at least halfway through the game. The whole setting of the game, with the cool enemies and evrionments is my second favorite thing. Amazingly that all came together with smooth controls, a great entertaining amount of abilities, and great graphics.

    I don't think they even decided on Kratos's weapons until late in the development cycle, but somehow the blades of chaos were born and it worked so well. If you watch the making of GOW is seems almost like they were lucky with a lot of things, but I have to credit the talent of David Jaffe, and his team for that.

    Personal i think GOW is a rip off of RYGAR with better graphic ofcourse. and the button indication thing is been done already, so nothing new there. the sex mini game is lame and personally i think rygar have better story.

    i played the first one half way. loss interest so i never really beat it. never played the second one and i'm not so hype about the next one... i like these type of games and genre, just not so much God of War.
