    Its biggest problem is its length, and that its formula can’t quite endure its sequel-dose duration. Whether or not it’s overlong in terms of play hours may be a matter of preference, but it feels slightly stretched during its final third, exposing its shallowness a little in the process.

    Horrible Game. The first one was very good and i thought that the First God Of War was a blatant rip off or Legendary Games like Ninja Horrible Game. The first one was very good and i thought that the First God Of War was a blatant rip off or Legendary Games like Ninja Gaiden, Prince Of Persia(1989) and Devil May Cry. But GOW II goes a step ahead. Same moves. Graphics are better. More ripping off of poor games like Legacy Of Kain. The Box Puzzle especially TICKED me off as it was a straight lift from their previous game. Its like Sony didn't have any ideas left. Sorry God Of War 2 is a Pathetic Game and God Of War 1 is far Better. All In All i will never consider GOW as a great game and in the league of Prince Of Persia, Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry or any other Original Games. Only reason GOW is successful is because of its Gore. Full Review »
