I know the setting is somewhere we don't believe in, but hey past greeks believed all the stuff that went down in God of War lol. Speaking of which, even though this game def "borrows" a bunch from GoW in more ways than one, I'm still having a blast with it.
Cutting foes in half with deaths sycthe(I call it a sling blade most folks call it a sycthe) is very rewarding not to mention fun to watch.
The "magical" cross which serves more as a "get the fuck back" device is also quite entertaining.
The environment of hell is dark, grimey, and gritty. Again while the story is similar and presented in a very GoW esque style, it too will keep you wanting more.
Have only just gotten to the first circle of hell(Lust) but limbo showed promise of things to come.
Boss battles may be simple, but have their moments of difficulty and can be long.
BTW, anyone who gets this title and enjoys as much as I do, DLC is coming with a wave-style game feature for two online player coop. So hit me up.
