I wasn’t gonna get this today, but dammit! this is making me want it, lol. I’ll probably get it in 2 weeks, that trailer got me hyped to play this again. The remaster is well worth it.

@60
Same here.
how do you unlock those? Were there suppose to be a voucher code inside the case?
please answer this, because if it was then I going to return the game tomorrow & demand a refund for not including the DLC.

Wow, 40 bucks? I guess I’ll go for it, since it IS God of War, after all. Both games rocked on the PSP. $30 would have been about right, though.

ALSO: To their credit, I played the PS3 demo as well, and these games look GREAT on the big screen.

God of War series is getting stale. Hasn’t evolved one bit.

@68 ok buddy each game has its uniqueness in weapons in magic.
however the attacks and combos are the same for the most part.
Also consider only 1 of the 5 GoW titles were actually intended for PS3
Your opinion is invalid I have all the Gow games and I can clearly see it evolved with time.
