Resolution Magazine writes: "Over the past couple of days, this is the game to have drawn in the crowds. Its booth is regularly the busiest here at the Eurogamer Expo, with excited hordes gathering gleefully around the eight enormous screens. There's a reason for that, and you don't even have to actually play it to understand that.
You want evidence? Okay. How about the scene where Kratos grabs Helois, wrestles him to the ground, then slowly rips off his head, with agonising screams and tremendous amounts of spraying blood? Just minutes earlier, Kratos had gouged out another character's eyes. And earlier still, an enormous, fiery beast towered over a gargantuan courtyard, thumping and stomping around in the distance, before raising a bloody huge foot and clambering up in chase of the player. One of his toes is roughly the same size as Kratos."
