Concerning Kratos



I have just finished perhaps the best PS2 game ever made. Took me two days(nine and a half hours) to pace myself through the lush terrain of God of War 2. I think the last game that I played non stop from start to end has been Prince of Persia 3, almost a year and a half ago.

Well, where do I start – graphically, its head above shoulders over every single other ps2 game, and I dare say its prettier than many off my Xbox 360 games. The story line is well thought out wit a healthy dose off Greek mythology (people who got hard-ons watching 300 will love the Sparta shit. I enjoyed the interweaving off different mythological figures (from a young age I was interested in mythology, so it was cool to see Prometheus, Icarus, Zeus etc in polygonal beauty) I don’t want to give away any part off the story, needless to say that I found it to be a little predictable at places. The puzzles were well thought off and hardly as frustrating or painful as the first game ( some off the first game puzzles felt like humping a cheese grater) As for difficulty – well, I finished it on easy mode (or more affectionately known as pussy mode) and I tried playing it on Titan mode earlier tonight (needless to say I was violated in the ass repeatedly by large burly Cyclops's – I have much respect for anyone who can complete this game on Titan mode)
The last great PS2 game? Yeah – but if you are going to bow out of the race, I see no better swan song for the best selling console off all time, than God of War 2.

Um, there were many instances of sexual metaphors in this post...uh, i don't play video games, so all I noticed was the "humping a cheese grater" (ouch), "hard-ons," "p- mode" and "f- in the ass" (double ouch)...hope the game was better than all that :)

ok, i like pac man, lol. And I was obssessed with Age of Empires and this creepy one called Sanatarium when I was in school...i suppose I lost some love for them...actually, I don't like the ones you like, cos I'm hopeless with the eye hand coordination thing sometimes. I prefer Need for Speed and Grand Theft Auto. Pac man is cool, man! :) missing you my honourable male friend with the lovely hair...
