I played through GoWIII once more. I found the horrible dialogues by certain characters (Hades, Helios, Hepheastus, Hermes, Hercules, Hera...) even more difficult to bare. The olympians should just shut up and die. After listening to their melodrama and BS rhetorical questions I was way more eager to kill them that Kratos was. GoW is an amazing series and GoWIII was an amazing game, but whoever wrote this crap should be fed to a Gorgon. Is it too much to ask to give Kratos a little heart? I know he's a bad @$$ but can't he be vulnerable for once? The ending to a great game and a great series could have far more epic were Santa Monica willing to dish out a little extra dough for some decent scribes.
I'm sorry. I know this series is made to appeal to the hackers and the slashers and the gore fans. i know kratos is supposed to be the cat's meow when it comes to decapitations and not giving a damn. i know GoW is more about gameplay and that story. However, i can't help but feel totally cheated now. what started out as a very epic and very superior tale of a mortal turned god ended in gods being morons. pretty freaking lame if you ask me.
ok. now i go cry myself to sleep and dream about the way it could have been.
