Sony's juggernaut bows out gracefully, with a crop of fine-looking games

God of War II

Publisher: SCEA
Developer: SCE Santa Monica
Release Date: Feb. 2007

If you need assurance that Sony won't abandon the PS2 after the PS3 launches, look no further than God of War II. The short level cobbled together for E3 hit all the right notes, from the opening where Kratos plummets about 30,000 feet and lands unharmed to his acquisition of the Golden Fleece.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
