God of War 2

One of the most anticipated games of the year and one of the final epic games for the PS2, God of War 2 pretty much picks up where the first game left off, and by the end of it will leave you wanting more.
First off, the game has a great story to it as you battle to reach the Sisters of Fate in hope of changing Kratos's destiny and get his revenge on Zeus. The downside is that when your done, it feels like it was over pretty quickly and there should have been more. That's the general feeling I got when I beat the game.
The graphics look amazingly good and is actually one of the few games where the actual game looks as good as the pictures you see in magazines, etc. The audio and voice acting is also nicely done with the music giving you that epic feel when doing battle.
The gameplay isn't perfect, but gets the job done since Kratos has some new moves in his arsenal as well as new weapons and abilities he can pick up along the way. The Blades of Athena always seem to be the best weapon of choice though. The only complaint about the gameplay would be that the game can be really difficult at times. Difficulty of the puzzles range from "too obvious" to "I need a friggin' FAQ!". I'm not exagerating on the FAQ part as some puzzles leave you almost no clue as to what your supposed to do.
And once you beat the game on Normal mode, you still have God mode and the insanely difficult Titan difficulty to look forward too if you thought the main game was too short. I think I'd recommend going straight to God mode if you mastered the first game.
Overall, a worthy sequel to the original, and here's hoping that the ending of this game means that a third is in the works.
