Watch: God of War II the Colossus battle

By Spencer . February 1, 2007 . 8:16pm

Unlike the Gamecube and Xbox the Playstation 2 is far from dead. God of War II is scheduled to come out in March and in a special two disc package with production details on the second disc. One thing God of War made good use of was the takedown mini games to make more dramatic action sequences without having to resort to complex button combos. These made the boss fights much more exciting and Sony Santa Monica Studios is sticking with the formula for God of War II. In the video clip below you can see what Kratos can do with his blades of chaos during a fight with the colossus. Past the break is the official trailer for God of War II with some more gameplay footage.

    I wish they didn’t have that simon says stuff in God of War II.

    The only think I didn’t like in first God of War is the times instead of having you fight the enemy normally, they just tell you what button to push, so they could show off their graphics and pass it off as a part of the actual combat.

    They get rid of that ‘press this button, press no other button!’ nonsense, God of War could be one of the best adventure games of all time.

    Honestly, those sequences were some of my favorite parts of the whole game.

    I think they highlighted how brutal Kratos could be as well as making combat more interactive instead of less, because im pretty sure they weren’t the same all the time and in some of the harder modes you had to be pretty quick before the enemy would knock you off. I would much rather have a mini game sequence than “ok when the boss does X I do Y” over…..and over…..and over. Albeit, there’s always going to be some of that in boss fights.

    Plus, if i recall correctly, most of those mini games you didnt even have to do at all. You could still kill the enemies normally without playing the mini games, except for a few select bosses.
