God of War II

A follow-up to the Sony's bestselling slasher released in 2005, whose plot is loosely based on the characters and events from Greek mythology. In God of War II we, once again, take on the role of Kratos, a Spartan warrior seeking vengeance, who, after having killed Ares, has become the new god of war. Tormented by nightmares of his past, the hero – despite the goddess Athena’s warnings – descends to Earth to help his fellow Spartans in conquering Rhodes. His actions infuriate Zeus, who cripples and kills our hero. Finding himself in Hades, Kratos learns that to turn back time and change his fate, he must find and kill three legendary Sisters of Fate. In terms of game mechanics, the second part of God of War doesn’t differ too much from its predecessor, though developers gave players completely new attacks and placed on Kratos’ path a lot of logical puzzles, which require – aside from fast fingers – a sharp mind.

God of War II for PlayStation 2 is a continuation to the bestselling action game published by Sony Computer Entertainment in 2005. The main protagonist is Kratos, known from the first God of War, whose virtual adventures are based on Greek mythology. The protagonist has gained the title of god of war, becoming one of the Olympians, but he still must return to mundane reality and meet his destiny. Once again, the cruel and arrogant warrior reaches for his terrible Blades of Chaos, received from Ares himself, to obliterate his enemies. Among the latter we see beasts like cyclopes and griffins, and even the three-headed dog, Cerberus, from the depths of Hades. Aside from standard enemies, Kratos will also confront exceptionally powerful bosses.

The developers provided the hero with a lot of new attacks, which can be easily used to create truly devastating combinations. We can also strike our foes from afar instead of engaging in close combat, using many offensive spells (e.g. freezing and summoning powerful wind). Naturally, we will also face logical problems during our exploration (usually quite complicated), so in addition to fast fingers we may also be required to use our head. On the other hand, the game's 3D graphics squeeze out every bit of power available to PlayStation 2. The game is complemented by climatic soundtrack, which was composed and recorded with quality comparable to the first God of War.
