It seems to have gotten us to talk about the game quite a bit.

This game is a complete and blatant ripoff of GOWIII

^^ Oh man shut up

the only thing it has in similar is its a hack and slash

So what if the gameplay is similar to god of war? imagine a world where games weren't created in fear they would be too similar to other titles.

What a crappy selection of games we would have.

At the time Call of Duty was said to be a rip-off of Medal of Honor

Now imagine if they had never made COD because it would be too much like MOH.

Thanks for the PM followed by the block. Truly the work of a scared child not wanting his feelings hurt.

This game looks like a weekend rental at best.

But will it get you to buy it?

Yeah, I like the look of the game and the advertising campaigns made me laugh so why not.

Are you talking about the cheesy diary segments [which over use the term 'epic'] or are you talking about the live promotional stunts. They all made me laugh, but not enough to make me want to pull out my wallet. Maybe they'll show more gameplay that doesn't look like a carbon copy of God of War.

That the developers of the game are using the term EPIC to refer to the form of poetry that is the source material for the game and not the pop culture references that you hear shouted all over the internet. That being said...I don't think that this or ANY GAME has the EPIC scope and viability of a poem that has been around since 1321!!!

I will only buy God of War 3, sorry Dante

EA better be careful...

Kratos does not like copycats
