What happens when a half naked man throws knives at the Greek Gods? Whacky mayhem, that's what!
Not as silly as you'd think, actually. The concept is solid, considering the gameplay the developers are working with consists of jumping, slashing and rolling around. What else was there to do in ancient Greece? Fuck all unless you count the olympics and anal sex, but we don't count those because they're both pointless!
Who thought this was clever?
It's rather unclear as to why Kratos is so angry with the Gods. Yes, there's the overall storyline of his "REVENGE" (pronounced with a roar, and a rage filled face) and the fact that all the Gods will fall, but seriously, this guy needs to take a sedative. Lie down, have a cup of tea. Looking back at the previous game (God Of War 2, not the dumbass portable one), it turns out that Zeus is Kratos' father, which obviously means he has to die, since, you know, the father always has to die in these things. It's like a rule. A retarded rule, sure, but a rule.
The game is a basic hack 'n' slash, and it follows a storyline involving a flame, a young girl, a large labyrinth and the "REVENGE" we mentioned earlier. It's all very soap opera-ey, and we don't want to get involved in such matters. The point is, while the story is lacking somewhat, the gameplay is rather fun. Especially when you start crushing peoples faces with the Nemean Cestus which you nick off Hercules, since he'd just use them for punching women and what not. Probably.
There'll be no beating of women with this guy. He's the poster boy for "Nice Gentlemen"
We only need to give you one name to let you know that this game is a winner. No-one else could play Hercules but this guy!
KEVIN FUCKIN SORBO!
That's right. Kevin Sorbo is in this game. Hercules is played by Hercules!
Oh, and then there's these other guys, not sure what to make of them, weird names, like Rip Torn and Malcolm Mcdowell. We hear they're pretty famous, but let's face it, they're no Kevin Sorbo!
