God of War 2 has finally joined the PS2 Greatest Hits titles. That means that you can pickup this instant classic title for the great Price of $19.99. God of War 2 will also play great on the PS3, and don’t forget to try out my God of War 2 Easter Egg.
“The gameplay of God of War II is very similar to that of its predecessor. The player controls Kratos in a combination of combat, platforming, and puzzle game elements. Kratos’ main weapons are Athena’s Blades, which are blades on the ends of long chains that Kratos is able to swing in destructive paths but also able to use to scale rock faces or swing from special hook points. Kratos received Athena’s Blades at the end of the original game. Other weapons and magic abilities are acquired as the plot progresses and can be used in conjunction with the Blades to dispatch enemies. Defeating foes using a combination of attacks, including chaining attacks together in combos, will release red experience orbs, used to power up Kratos’ weapons and magic, and green, blue, and yellow orbs to replenish health, magic power, and the Rage of the Titans power, respectively. Chests distributed throughout the levels can also release these orbs, as well as providing Kratos with special artifacts to increase his maximum health and magic levels”
“God of War II takes place some time after the events of the first game; Kratos, after his defeat of Ares, has become the new God of War, but has not been accepted by the other members of the Greek pantheon due to his ruthless treatment of the other Greek city-states. Kratos is still haunted by memories of the deeds from his horrible past while working under Ares. He finds enjoyment the only way he can, by leading his Spartan army in conquering Greece. Athena pleads that Kratos stops, telling him that she cannot protect him much longer,telling him not to turn his back on her and thus reminding him that it was she who made him a god. Kratos replies that he owes nothing to her and descends to Rhodes to assist his Spartan army.”
Be sure to pick this gem up. I always say “so many people can’t be wrong”.
