God of War II review

Slice the ancient world wide open in this beautifully destructive monster-stomp

Although it's the second entry in a trilogy, God of War II still feels like a complete story (even though it ends on a cliffhanger, which seems to be standard practice these days), and it's obvious that great care went into every last detail of the game. The end result is an addictive, relentlessly fun thrill ride that'll make you feel like the toughest, most brutal thing in the ancient world. If you're even a casual action fan and you don't mind the buckets of spraying blood (and the occasional bare breast or offscreen-sex minigame), then this is what you should be playing right this second.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

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.
