The violence in this game is unmatched. Some of it is gory, some of it is brutal, and some of it is just plain hilarious. To cause such incredible violence, you need adequate tools. Kratos's Blades of Chaos return as his primary weapon. Throughout the story you gain access to several new weapons and abilities, including a particularly punishing pair of Cesti (hooks that summon souls from the Underworld) and the head of a heavenly enemy.
