Likes

- Appreciate how you describe Kratos as a character. That way, the player knows what he or she is getting into. Some people, myself included, wouldn't feel comfortable playing as someone this unscrupulous. Thanks for the heads up. I would hate to be out $50 or so playing as someone I don't particularly care for.

- Ties into the first comment, but really enjoyed the vivid descriptions despite having no interest in Kratos.


Dislikes

- A bit confused by how you argue that "doing all those things over again" is a good thing. Couldn't you save right before the glitch in the intro?

- Like Tomb Raider, don't care for the 180. This time, it's not as bad because you really don't go full boar into the issues and you do use it as a segue into selling the game, but still think the intro could be better. That's just me.

- Too many ALL CAPS too close together.

- One of the later paragraphs has you arguing for button mashing and impromptu buttons combos. Maybe it's just me, but I don't care for particularly either one. I'm not sure how this sells the game.

- Couldn't really get into this review, but maybe a large part of that is because I wouldn't care to play this game to begin with knowing Kratos is a real jerk. Not sure how much that skewed by comments.

If my review interested you at all, I suggest you read Zig's review of God of War. I personally think he does a much better job of selling the game.

My review was kind've a "retrospective" more than a true sell. I appreciate the comments, as usual (if you ever want to cash in on my offer to look at your reviews, I owe you four at this point)


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

Zig's God of War is one of my favorite reviews on the site.

Good thing you didn't use that for the TT, I remember a few years back someone used one (Jihad maybe?) and Jerec's critique was something like "fuck fuck fuck God of War fuck fuck fuck I'm not reading this".


IF YOU WANT MORE BEATS FOR YOUR BUCK THERE'S NO LUCK.

Zipp - Would like some feedback for Legacy of the Wizard and Dragon Warrior for right now. As far as the other two, I'll wait until I publish two more NES game reviews.

Oh no, it's a Goomba!
