Rated 5 out of 5★ by ThatGamerGuy One of the best hack 'n slash games this gen! Graphics: This is the best-looking game on the PS3. The lighting, texture, art-style, performance and visual effects are just absolutely magnificent. The character models are very detailed too and the animation is superb.Gameplay: The combat is better than ever, this time you stick with the blades of chaos throughout the game but can use 4 different elements (fire, ice, soul, electricity) to change how they work. Then there's 5 world weapons to use and 2 artifacts to control time and clone yourself. The platforming is better than ever, the puzzles are brilliant and the game is responsive, fun and exciting!Story: Set 6 months after Kratos killed his wife and daughter, this is the most human Kratos has been yet and this story shows why Kratos went insane and sought to kill Ares in the first God of War. I don't want to spoil it but the story is great in this game, play all the other God of Wars first though to get the best understanding of it and pay attention because the games story is told in a non-linear fashion.Sound: The original soundtrack is stunning, the sound effects are top notch, voice-acting is impeccable and the environmental sounds are superb. Some people are reporting issues with it being too quite but there's a simple fix for this, in the sound settings menu change the sound setting from 5.1 surround to either stereo or headphone, it makes a huge improvement. Also some minor sync issues which will be patched soon.Multiplayer: This is the most fun and unique multiplayer I've played in years! With 4 classes, tons of weapons and a plethora of different modes, this is a genre defining multiplayer component. The multiplayer in this game is good enough to be a standalone game, it gives you plenty of value for money as you will become addicted to it and sink many hours of game time ripping your foes apart!Bottom line: This game is a MUST BUY! The amazing 8-10 hour single player campaign is worth it alone, however you now get a full multiplayer experience with this game and it will not disappoint any God of War fan or fans of the genre. 03/23/2013
