I just read up on wikipedia about the story behind the first two parts, figure that should prime me enough to play the third one. As much as I'm tempted to get that pack with the first 2 games, I know theres no way I'll have time to play through them.

From what I can gather its pretty much:

- Kratos betrayed by Ares, kills Ares, replaces Ares
- He doesn't fit in with the other gods because hes such an enormous cock, and Zeus tricks him into giving up his powers and getting him killed.
- He comes back from the dead, kills some chicks that let him time travel or change the past or something.
- He goes back to when the gods were fighting the titans, and brings the titans with him to the current time, and uses them to attack Mt Olympus which is where number 3 seems to start.

Yeah that is the storyline minus the particulars... such as how he came to working for ares, how ares betrayed him, and a few other bits and bobs i wont mention due to spoilers

Spoiler:
he's zeus son, he accidently kills athena


They are great games though and well worth playing... The ps3 re-releases of 1 and 2 are well worth it..

Big W @ $88 is the cheapest I've read about so far. That is only about 10-15 bucks more than cdwow/playasia.

Edit: BigW is actually $94 bucks apparently. Might get a CE since they regulars are pretty expensive.

Khel: A while. I think from memory I took around 14-15hrs to finish it on normal? Slightly less for God of War 1. So if you start now, you'll be right for Thursday :)

first time through, some of the puzzles can stump you.. they are not over the top crazy.. just can get a little frustrating at times... i remember one puzzle in god of war 2 i think it was where you had to push a crate in a room with a timed spike floor.. took me ages to get it down perfect.

Or the time manipulation one in GoW2 when you had to catch the guy before he throws himself off the cliff.. That drove me insane for ages.

I've only played a bit of #2, but I can say it was one of the best games I've ever played, just in terms of epic'ness and refined gameplay.

Yeah, but I wasn't planning on going out to the shops tomorrow, I have to go out today so it would be handy if I could get it this afternoon.

I traded in 3 games for it this morning at JB. I also noticed they were selling it for $88. Cheapest I've seen so far.
