Top 25 Games of the Decade - #7 God of War

"Kratos' journey is a troubled one that was worth every moment spent completing the single-player campaign. Fighting off the many heads of the Hydra, the boss battles are out of this world in brilliance as they capture the epic nature of Kratos' mission.

The gameplay is simply to die for – just ask all the God of War clones who are trying to emulate (or depending on who you ask, imitate) the formula Jaffe helped start. Every action-adventure game released since God of War's debut has, for one reason or another, been compared to SCEA's award-winning title."

I can't wait till God of War 3 comes out. This series is one of the best currently around.

march cant come soon enough. but, i know imma get burned for this, but i was the guy who would diss all other clones, untill i played dantes inferno. i have to say that game impressed me, and i think the only reason it did so is because of how big of a clone it is...

LeonSKennedy4Life3224d ago

I agree. Dante's Inferno isn't half bad.

It's just a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE rip-off of GOW.

Everything from the combo system to the QTE's to the opening boxes to regain They should get sued for that.

Zeal0t3223d ago

Who cares if they copy something that's amazing?! What's the worst that could happen, they succeed and we got 2 good hack and slash games instead of 1?

Caspel3223d ago

It's going to be off the hook! that and the NA version of FFXIII will make my March amazing

DatNJDom813223d ago

I really liked the Dante's Inferno demo. I think its gonna be a great game. I can't wait to see how they make hell look and how many disturbing things they are going to have. God of War 3 on the other hand is just....... WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!! And that ladies and gentlemen is the difference between Dante's Inferno and God of War 3.

never got to pay this game...not really intested either....

Darkeyes3224d ago

Interested enough to comment on the article to tell how disinterested you are eh?

AllroundGamer3224d ago

then you're doing it wrong! :p

Agheil3224d ago

Played the demo like 35 times

LeonSKennedy4Life3224d ago

I's kind of a boring demo.

L1 + Square pretty much gets you through the whole thing unscathed. It's alright, but I've played the Bayonetta demo many more times. The combo system on Bayonetta is ridiculously intricate...even on the demo! It's freakin' awesome! I can almost paint a picture on the ground with blood from her enemies! It's a freakin' work of art, man!

cr33ping_death3223d ago

ummm yeah played Bayonetta demo and wasnt at all impressed... to each his own right.

LeonSKennedy4Life3224d ago

I'm tired of God of War getting all the spotlight.

If you've played Devil May Cry 3, you know what the real BEST action game ever is. It was incredible!

I prefer Devil May Cry over GOW in general, but DMC3 is just incredible!

Hopefully, Kamiya continues his title with me on Bayonetta. I'm sure he will. The man's a genius!

Megaton3224d ago (Edited 3224d ago )

Kamiya didn't have anything to do with DMC3, only the original.

lol @ disagree.


Darkeyes3224d ago

The only thing DMC/Beyonetta has over GOW is it's complex over the top combo system... In every other department like Story, Graphics and Character, GOW pwns DMC/Beyo. Seriously name 1 character in the recent years that has gained the popularity of Kratos... Only 1 I can think is Nathan Drake and that too I feel Kratos had bigger emphasis on the action genre.....

GOW still is regarded as one of the best if not the best action game last gen and I am pretty sure GOW3 will take the podium this gen. I for one like the smooth easy controls... If I wish for a game with deep combat, then I will play NGS2..... Can't wait till March 2010.

LeonSKennedy4Life3224d ago (Edited 3224d ago )

That's why I specifically said "continues his title with me".

God of War has a great story, beautiful graphics, and good characters.

It's just kind of boring to play sometimes because the combo system is practically non-existant.

God of War II is regarded as the best action game...sadly. It's fun and epic, but I can spend over 50 hours in a row on Devil May Cry 1, 2, or 3. I couldn't do a straight 10 with any God of War.

God of War does NOT have smooth easy controls...not compared to Devil May Cry. It's nowhere close!

Yes, Kamiya DID have a lot to do with DMC3. He was practically their go-to guy on all the design ideas. He threw ideas over to the Devil May Cry team, but wasn't on the actual team himself. He was over at Clover studios at the time...making Okami. Amazing game also.

Also, I beg to differ. The DMC3 storyline is much cooler than GOW or GOW II. It was freakin' BAMF! Dante has more one-liners than Bruce Willis! Kratos needs to get over his dead family. Come's been a few years. Go dating again!

Caspel3223d ago

Devil May Cry is an amazing series too. I don't like the 2nd or 4th all that much.
