Trivia

One of the first scenes showed to the press involved what was intended to be a part of Pandora's temple where Kratos has to stay on a magic elevator through an outdoor environment while a roaring sandstorm prepares to hit. The game play mechanics were finished, and the level was almost entirely completed but the sandstorm effects just turned out to be impossible and the whole sequence ended up cut. See more »

Goofs

In the level "The Gate Keeper", the giant bull you fight against brakes the door door. Even so, after you defeat him the door is closed again. See more »

Quotes

Ares: That night... I was trying to make you a great warrior!

Crazy Credits

When the credits finish, Kratos can be heard saying: "I am compelled to push onward, onto my next journey. I don't know where it will take me. Could I finally try to save.. him? He who I couldn't help when he needed me most? But much has changed since then, I have changed, I can do so much more now. But he has changed too, he is surely no longer the boy he was years ago. Will he welcome me with open arms, or clenched sword? Either way, I will be back" See more »

whoa
11 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

that is the only word i have to describe this game, whoa. everything about this game is amazing. the level design is superb and original, offering new challenges that seem daunting, but aren't too hard to figure out. the character design is amazing, from the smallest grunt, to the tallest god (of war... sorry, i couldn't resist) the animations and movements of the characters are smooth and great top look at. the fighting looks kind of like a button masher, but it is deep, layered, and fun to get into, offering combos that give you more experience, or letting you rip your enemy in half. the only complaint is that a lot of the gore is over the top, like ripping the wings off a harpie, ripping the arm off an enemy and killing them with hit, and lastly (the most fun to watch) stabbing a Minotaur in the face. all in all, this is the reason action adventure games were created, the reason for anyone who doesn't already to get a ps2, and, dare i say?, the best ps2 game I've ever played, 10/10
