Excerpt: A game featuring melee weaponry without some sort of fluid and satisfying movement just isn’t possible these days. It’s an almost obligatory feature, which is a necessity if such games want to stay up there with the big boys. There’s nothing that matches the feeling of swinging a sword or two, and watching your on-screen character dance with a deadly purpose around the screen.
Conclusion: And talk about precarious: how about Kronos, letting off a little steam after driving stakes through the skulls of an angry trio of Hydras, turning the cold shoulder on the two naked women who just occupied his bed. There are a couple of scenes of nudity in God of War. Does it work? You decide.

Summary: One of the most outstanding games on PS2.

Conclusion: Finally, I would like to end saying that this game is one of the best experiences in a game I have had in a very long time. While it could have been a bit longer, I think it ended just right. Any game that is this fun to play will feel short due to the fact you can play for hours and it feels like minutes since you started playing. For people wondering if its a rent or buy, personally I rented it and beat it but it is definitely worth buying.
