Wow, awesome review. I think this is the first God of War I've legitimately been interested in, well done good sir.

Might have to pick this up sometime.

I've only finished the original God of War. ...would it be reasonable for me to play this and then go back to God of War 2 and 3?

Absolutely. It's funny, even though it's a prequel, it's almost as if it was meant to be played in that order.

8.5? Really? GoW series haven't changed at all, its the same game every time.

Obviously you didn't read the review because a) there have been multiple gameplay additions and control scheme changes and b) multiplayer... you're saying God of war has always had multiplayer? Doesn't sound like the same game to me.
