IGN's Review.....

God of War II Review
Intense, engaging and over the top, the PlayStation 2's swan song is as nearly perfect as they come.

February 12, 2007 - The original God of War was an action gaming masterpiece from start to finish. Its Greek mythology-derived storyline, blanketed with larger-than-life set pieces and timeless characters and themes, provided the perfect backdrop to an incredibly intense and engaging action romp. We dubbed it our pick for not only Best Action Game (http://bestof.ign.com/2005/overall/1.html) but overall Game of the Year for 2005 (http://bestof.ign.com/2005/overall/25.html), and to this day it stands as one of, if not the greatest, action games ever released. Though Kratos wound up sitting atop his throne as the God of War at the first game's finale, his tale was far from over. God of War II (http://ps2.ign.com/objects/811/811719.html) picks up right where the original left off and follows the anti-hero on his continued path of revenge.

When the sequel was announced, fans wandered not if it would be a worthy follow-up but whether Sony's Santa Monica Studio would actually be able to outdo the original. After all, rather than making the leap to next-gen, the developer decided to keep the franchise on the PlayStation 2 for the time being. Citing matured technology that would allow them to focus on content rather than having to work through the growing pains associated with in-progress engine development, Santa Monica Studios took the road most traveled and wound up producing what amounts to a near-perfect sequel.

I'm gonna get it (downloaded probably), but I have a feeling it's just gonna be more of the same... Not saying that's a bad thing, but a high review from IGN doesn't mean much these days... Especially from a high profile game like this one.

I'll be a great game, but I don't expect anything new.

OMG Motion! You left out the MOST important part of that article....

It'll play in 720p on a PS3. That is AWESOME! It's VERY VERY hard to find PS2 games that support HD. Especially a beautiful game like this.

If it is more of the same but better it deserves a high review. God of War was freaking amazing.

that isn't true. They give bad reviews all the time.

Plus saying it like anything is like telling your girlfriend, "Yes a blow job was great but it is just going to be more of the same".

Why even mention it? I know I want more of the same. I wish there was a God of War III and a God of War IV and a God of War V, all basically the same with more enemies and different stories coming out every week until the day I die. Of course that is impossible, but this game is so freaking amazingly fun I know I wouldn't get sick of it. I know I wouldn't say, "great another blow job, thanks honey"

The same as it works for every other co-op game.

Anyway, does anyone know if they plan on making Champions of Norrath for the ps3? It's for the ps2 and an RPG that you can play with up to 4 people all on the same screen. Very cool game. Rent it if you still have a ps2.

The truth is... If I speak about the Wii and my over all discontent with the thing, people get upset and accuse me of being a PS3 or 360 fanboy. So... Like mamma always said.... If I don't have anything nice to say....
