Didn't you hear, it's a prequel to even Ghost of Sparta. All the gods will be alive. There's no ambition in this project.

Good stuff, I loved GOW 1 & 2 but 3 was disappointing as it wasnt quite in the same league as the first two. They should of well got to grips of the PS3 now so i do expect this to be STUNNING.

easy orbs tho to make your blades more devestating. be greatfull he only has the stamina of a chiwawa and finishes within 10 seconds.

looking forward to this one. i wonder if the chain blades will return seeing as it's a prequel. be crazy to remove the think that makes the game stand out combat wise...trailer was shite tho, need gameplay.

I hope this is more engaging and addictive than gow3 as i failed to finish that game.

I guess I'm the only one tired of Kratos and his infinite rage. I was hoping for a new character or even a different mythology.

Nope, me, you and tons of others are happy how GoW3 ended and they should just make another myth and character instead. Norse myth!
Commented on 2012-04-19 18:29:57
GOW without Kratos would be like Donkey Kong without the monkey.

Thats what I meant, DONT make God of War. Same devs, new IP, new direction in another myth.
GoW3 ended well and Kratos got his "vengeance" and thats all it mattered in GOW series.

Whats the point of nerfing a god to a warrior and experience his warrior life? Who the hell wants to play a nerfed character. I will probably not get this.

Actually, nothing about the storyline has been revealed. Anyone who says otherwise is stating their assumption/prediction as fact.
