    The best game of 2005!

    God of War is probably the best game of 2005. This game is like a combination of Devil May Cry and Prince of Persia. All three of them were goods. The game play in God of War is incredible. The sound is perfect. The came... Read Full Review

    (PS3 Version) Excellent in every way except possibly the controls

    Even in 2014, this game is excellent. The graphics are great for such a dated game, gameplay is beyond extraordinary. The story is basic, but the level design is absolutely brilliant. You revisit some of the areas you've... Read Full Review

    God of War I is the first release of the God of War series, so it was quiet disappointing but is is good. The game is easy but there are couple parts that are pretty hard like the Challenge of Poseidon, The Centaur Sacri... Read Full Review

    A must-play game in the ps2. If action/adventure isn't your thing, then GoW1 will change your mind about that.

    God of War 1 is one of those games that when you look back you can say that it was one of your favorites. That's how I feel about it due to how entertaining it was for me. It took me a long time to decide to buy it becau... Read Full Review
