From Sony Computer Entertainment America's Santa Monica Studios comes God of War, a visceral action-adventure based on the fantastical and dark world of ancient Greek mythology. As the fearsome Kratos, a mighty Spartan warrior hell-bent on destroying god of war Ares, you must slay some of the most famous - and largest - creatures in history. Armed with the fearsome Blades of Chaos, two flaming blades bound to his body by long chains, and various gifts from the gods, the remorseless Kratos will not hesitate to carve his way through anyone - or anything - that stands in his path.

It may not have the most complicated gaming plots ever, but the game makes up for it with some insanely fun and engaging gameplay and a ridiculous amount of blood and gore to boot.

All of the dialogue is easy to understand, the imagery is excellent and the entire storyline comes together nicely thanks to a masterful piece of storytelling.

Don't miss out on this at any cost. If you need a bit more convincing, just remember: you get to have a threesome.

God of War is a stylish, gory and challenging action game that rewards you for skill and persistence. One of the best action titles to be released on the PlayStation 2 so far.

Possibly the best first-party game to ever come out on the Playstation 2. That’s a tough thing to say with Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Sly Cooper and Gran Turismo out there, but it’s simply the truth.

It has raised the bar and raised our expectations of what an action/adventure title can be. This is one instance where the inevitable copycats from other developers will not only be welcome, they are highly encouraged.

People do not play games because they break new ground. People play games because they are fun. And fun is God of War's greatest strength... This is not a perfect game, but it is a great one.

Not only is the control system comfortable, easy to use, and intuitive, but battling enemies is actually enjoyable. Heck, the more the better.

I feel totally comfortable saying that God of War is the best action game ever to grace the PS2. The gameplay, graphics, sound, production, presentation, and story are excellent. It all adds up to an epic Greek adventure where you can execute some of the slickest moves in gaming.

God of War should be played by everyone on the planet. Why? Because if you do not like God of War, you do not like video games. Plain and simple.
