Summary

Very gory.. but the more blood, the merrier I am!

The Good

This game was, to say the least, an entertaining trek through the world of Greek mythology. While platforming through a War-ravaged (LOL) Athens, you get to use all sorts of bloody fatalities, such as ripping an opponent in two, or impaling him on one of your chain blades, and swing him around in circles. The powers, while they were not as functional and useful as possible, were cool looking and could drastically change the way you played through.

The Bad

The game's cutscenes were too few, and some of them were annoying in that some of them consisted entirely of drawings, without any animation to speak of.

The Bottom Line

This game is great, so long as you don't mind the MK-style gore and the gut-wrenching fatalities.
