God of War II (PlayStation 2)

 

It's hard to imagine a better swan song for the PlayStation 2 than God of War II. Though it's not destined to be the very last game for the system, it doesn't seem likely that anything else will come along in the coming months to trump what God of War...

God of War 2 is the sequel to 2005's critically and financially successful PS2 title, God of War. As before, the protagonist is a brutal Spartan warrior named Kratos. In...

Stellar production values ; Gorgeous graphics ; Satisfying, fun combat ; Ingenious, challenging puzzles

Puzzles occasionally more frustrating than necessary (puzzle elements sometimes introduced before they can be used, inconsistent cues for destructible objects and climbable walls) ; Sporadic framerate glitches ; Some enemies recycled from God of War 1

God of War II

 

After over 6 years on the market, it's amazing to think that the PlayStation 2 still has a lot of life left in it. Despite 2006 being the year of the ‘next-gen' console, the current-gen PS2 saw a lot of life from games like Okami, Bully, Final Fantasy...

What else is there to say but WOW. Six years in the life of one of the greatest game consoles ever has lead to this point as God of War II is most likely the last big game we are ever going to see from a Sony first-party and quite possibly the greatest...

When I first approached God of War in 2005, I found myself impressed by many aspects of the game. From its ability to throw a scant but emotionally-impacting story at the player without bogging him down, its epic battles, and its graphics that seemed...

As one of the biggest smash hits of 2005, God of War for PlayStation2 is a tough act to follow. Fortunately, God of War II is not only equal to the challenge, it improves upon and surpasses its predecessor all ways (except maybe originality, naturally).

Most of the time whenever a new console replaced the old one, we'll see a major decline in the amount and quality of games released for the old

I want to say that God of War II is perfect, but where it comes up short is “new content”. A lot of what you see in this game you have seen before, and its hard to say that a game that borrows so much is perfect. With that being said, it’s...

The original God of War was enjoyed by quite a few people. So when the sequel was announced there was much rejoicing, although some would complain as God of War II would be coming to the aged PlayStation 2 and not the shiny and new PlayStation 3. Not...

For what it is though, God of War II is a great game with a well-balanced mix of a awesome story, intriguing puzzles, and a fun fighting system. There is definitely room for improvement, but considering the series' lifespan will probably be indefinite,...

God of War II Review for the PS2

 

Get right with God.

It's the God of War!; Looks the part; Sounds the part; Fights like a demon; Diabolical puzzles

Some cheap fights; Not the God of Mensa

Movie reviewers decry the film 300 as “like a video game – all action and graphics, no plot.” In a sense, God of War 2 proves their point. It has oceans of blood, electrifying action, graphics that should be accompanied by opera (and usually are), with...

Believe the hype, kids. God of War II is everything a sequel should be; bigger, badder and, yes, better than the original.

God of War II

 

Kratos returns from Olympus with a titanic chip on his shoulder.

Graphics that rival the PS3; incomparably immersive cinematic flow; riveting plot

Daunting difficulty; having to come up with something else bad to say about GoW II
