The Best Sony Playstation 2 Game Ever Created
God of War II for the Playstation2 is a 3rd person action game that has won awards for its brilliance. While the original God of War game was amazing, the updated version has bettered it and in doing so, created a must-have game on Playstation2. Enter a world of Greek legend where you become Kratos, an evil brute, recently crowned the new god of war. The game is beautifully paced, giving you seemingly endless areas to explore with truly believable atmospherics in a way not seen before. To complete the mission, you'll have to fight some fearless creatures, uncover the answers to problems that bar your way, fight your way past seemingly unbeatable boss characters, and prove that you're the most brutal being ever created. God of War II really does emphasize combat over everything else and gives you more combos to perfect, new moves and an array of weapons than you would have dreamed to own in the first title.
While God of War I only offered you one weapon, GOW2 gives you several, which can be made stronger with attack power and special moves and abilities. Choose your own style of combat, with levels that offer up constant surprises. Re-playability is excellent as well – you can store your upgrades for the second time around, giving you several options when meeting tough foes again. For those of you interested in how this game was made the second CD has a detailed guide. Everything is shown, blowing the lid off the secrets of how such an amazing game came to happen.
