Don't Throw Away Your PS2 Just Yet

Those who thought the PS2 was destined for the scrap heap got a rude awakening this week at the hands of Kratos - better known as the God of War. And that's because GOW2 dropped this past Tuesday. Let me tell you, the rumors of the PS2's death have been greatly exaggerated.

This game is one of the most visually stunning titles released on the PS2. The scenery looks great, the bosses look great, the blood looks great. Oh yes, there's blood - rivers of it. Oh, and there's naked chicks too. What more could you want in a video game?

Beyond just the looks, the game plays really well. Some of the kills that Kratos pulls off really make you jump out of your seat. Basically, if you loved the first one, this is a must have title. But even if you missed the first one, this is still a must play.

Downsides? It's pricey for a PS2 game. Most are being released at the $30 price point now, so coughing up $50 for this one might be tough on you cheapskates. My advice? Get a used game, borrow from a friend, steal from your mother's purse, whatever. Just get this game.

In the meantime, check out the Gamespot review here. Then go get the game, cause playing is a hell of a lot more fun than reading. It's more fun than writing too, so that's the end of this article. So why are you still reading? Go play with something already. And if it has to be with yourself, so be it.
