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.
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.
