PlayStation 2 owners need no introduction to Kratos. As the star of the game God Of War, which has sold over 1.5 million copies since its release in early 2005, Kratos took on hordes of mythical beasts as he fought his own demons, and eventually defeated Ares, the god of war, and took on his mantle for himself.
Now, two years later, God of War 2 has arrived. In it, Kratos is stripped of godhood by Athena, his onetime liege, as punishment for his ruthless abuse of his godly powers in the favor of his Spartan subjects on the Earth below. Although no longer a god, Kratos still possesses his combat acumen, as well as his burning self-righteousness, which will no doubt serve him well as he adventures through ancient Greece in an attempt to restore what was taken from him.
GameSpotís Game Guide to God of War II will take you through the entire single-player adventure, with tips and videos for each boss fight, along with details on all the weapons and magic that youíll be encountering along the way.
