Games like Brothers in Arms: Hour of Heroes show that at least in concept the iPhone can do much more than just puzzle games. Now Gameloft returns with what can only be called their take on God of War. Hero of Sparta is a glossy, very familiar take on one man's fight against Greece's mythological creatures. More importantly, it's a 3D hack-and-slasher packed with a variety of weapons and eight levels. But does the game deliver?"
