I actually quite liked the story. But it's a bit more complicated than "he got bored being a God, interfered in something, got kicked out and wasn't happy about that". Zeus was his father and the Fates told Zeus that his son would overthrow him, just like Zeus overthrew his father Cronos and the rest of the Titans. That's why Cronos used to eat any male sons he had, to prevent it. But Zeus survived, freed his brothers and overthrew the Titans.
Zeus found out Kratos would overthrow him (he didn't initially know Kratos was his son), so killed him. But Kratos survived and then tried to kill Zeus in revenge.
They're fun hack & slash games, but I actually really enjoyed the whole story
They really are. The story is crazy, but the gameplay is fun, that's definitely something they got right. I started at GoW 3, and absolutely loved it, despite how batsh*t bonkers it is!
There's no-one left to kill.....
I'm sure he could travel through time and take on Mayan/Norse/Japanese mythology!
There are other gods.
Live action trailer.
Also, how has there not been more talk about this game on this forum? From everything I've been reading it's shaping up to be better than GoW3.
Cause i cant help but feel they are milking it abit, and with the inclusion of multiplayer alot of fans seem to think it may dilute the singleplayer experience. Plus the fact that its a prequel and lets be honest, none of the prequel games had a patch on the main 3 games. Although it IS a PS3 and not a psp title so im sure the gameplay, graphics, and massive set pieces will be mind blowing, but as far as the storyline goes im pretty "meh" about it.
I haven't been chatting on boards about it since im on a media blackout just to avoid ruining any of the epic moments that are yet to come, but for sure ill be getting it day1 as im a massive GoW fan
Opening 30 minutes of the game. Noice.
Looks like more of the same. yay graphics are excellent, the scale is phenomenal.
If I preorder this on amazon.co.uk
Do i also get the the last of us demo?
I just put a pre-order for the Collector's Edition of GOW: Ascension there today. Cannot wait for this game. Epic is the word for the series. CE looks pretty sweet too!
Gentlemen, whats the cheapest place to get this online? Don't need it on release day.
Best i go so far is Amazon at €46 with free delivery. No doubt it will be €60 in gamestop.
