God of War II was always considered the last great PlayStation 2 game. The last great example of why the PS2 is and should be considered the greatest gaming console of all time.
But what do we at Destructoid think about it? Is it as great as everyone makes it out to be or is what you're hearing just a bunch of hype? Take a look at what we think after the jump.
The designers must have known what they had was working and wisely decided to not fix what ain't broken. The few new features they did add (new items, more bosses, etc.) are just the right amount of change to make the game feel fresh without losing the appeal so cherished in the original. It also helps that everything feels tighter and more cohesive than in the first game as well (and major props for not having to climb those annoying rotating blade-filled towers on this sequel -- huzzah!).
Final score: 8
