The Making Of: God Of War

EDGE - If you want a picture of the distant past, imagine a set of flaming chains smacking you in the face forever. “Very early in the process we were struggling for our voice,” remembers David Jaffe, the director of Sony’s brain-splattered fever dream God Of War. “I took one of the artists aside. I told him I wanted to see what would happen if Terry Gilliam made a pop-up book for kids: over-the-top, bombastic, operatic.” He pauses, thinking back over three years of gruelling development. “It was a huge job. I gained 40 pounds on this game. I did irrevocable damage to my marriage.” In case we’re missing the nature of the undertaking, he adds: “All through development, I listened to Queen, particularly the Flash Gordon soundtrack.” (God of War, PS2)

Weird...did not get into any of the old GOW. Never liked em. Played GOW: Ascension and man, do I love it. Yet and still, I'm not going back to playing the old GOW. Strange? Yes but it's what I feel...
