Many games are let down by the second round but kratos does not agree with death and is back with more spells and weapons and hes out for blood killing and screaming for more he faces the imposable but will destroy all for his revenge

"A must buy for all gamers"
4 stars"

Graphics-

The graphics of GoW2 are as good as they can get on the PS2. The maps and scenery are beautifully detailed and the enemies are well designed. Also the game generates amazingly brutal animations with blood gushing out of Kratos' victims upon every hit. It may not be realistic to have enemies lose three gallons of blood every second but the game as a whole is based on myth so it isn't supposed to be realistic.

Sound: The music is great, but honestly most people won't hear it because of the amazing sound effects. The screams of soldiers and and other creatures will ring through your game room as you play adding to your ability to immerse yourself in the cinematic quality of GoW2.

Gameplay: The most important part of every game is where GoW2 shines. As I'm sure that you already know you get to tear though thousands of troops with your blades of chaos just like you did in the first game, but GoW2 fixes something that bothered me in GoW1 and that was the poor amount of bosses. GoW2 has about 20 or so bosses when the first game had like 2 or 3. GoW2 also has a simple system that can result in complicated combos; however button mashing can be just as effective. GoW2 also has a lot less puzzles and the few that it does are rather easy.

Overall/Wrap up: This game is a great action game that most people will like; however it does have its flaws which is why it didn't get a 10 out of 10 rating. Much like the first game GoW2 is short, you can beat it in about 10–15 hours, which is an improvement over the first God of War which was about 8 hours. Another flaw is that it is an easy game, with button mashing you can finish it but it will not be as fun without seeing all of Kratos' animations of dismembering the enemies. As a final word this game is worth you time and money because you will get an experience that you will never forget and will have you coming back for more.

I'll give this a good 9/10

"GOW..1.5?"
4 stars"

Although this game is great in almost ever single way. Its to similar to its Prequel of the same name, But that not always a bad thing! If you enjoyed god of war 1 then there's a good chance your going to enjoy this, just don't expect to see a massive change in game-play. Its still the great defining game-play of god of war with some minor tweaks and some better battle sequences. If your looking for a completely different game to god of war you may want to look somewhere else. But if your want more blood, gore, and lose of limbs – violence in general, you'd defiantly want to buy this game.

Description

The story picks up where players last left off with Kratos. Sitting atop his throne on Olympus, Kratos, the once mortal warrior has become a threat far worse than his predecessor Ares, had ever been. Kratos is a ruthless God, whose wrath strikes down anyone who crosses his path or the path of his beloved Sparta. The "Ghost of Sparta" sets out to alter that which no mortal, or god has ever changed, his fate. Kratos' journey brings him to the very edge of the Earth, facing countless beasts, monsters, and horrors from his previous life, all bent on preventing him from reaching his goal. But this is Kratos, and his defiance is filled with such arrogance and contempt that all of the Ancient World still trembles at his name: Kratos, the God of War.
