Remember the first God of War title? It featured one of the most famous bad asses in gaming history: Kratos, the only human that dared to take on the gods. Based on the Greek mythology, the God of War saga tells the tale of the gods of Olympus that have to face this brave spartan, called Kratos. In the first title, the warrior defeated Ares, becoming the new God of War and now he's challenged the gods yet again. In GOW 2, Athena and the other divinities plot against the spartan, who has become a real threat towards Olympus. As he's "supervising" a fight between mortal armies, Kratos is transformed into a human and he'll have to face the colossus of Rhodes, awaken by Athena. He eventually wins, but Zeus interferes and lures the hero in a trap, draining all his godly power inside a sword.
You're about to read a couple of spoilers, but don't worry as there's lots to find out as you'll get to play this in the first quarter of hour in the game. What's next? It's Kratos versus Zeus, round 1 and it's pretty clear who won the fight. Too bad that our favorite dies such a painful death, as you'll see in a very beautiful cutscene. He'll end up in hell, almost in the grasp of Hades. Ok, ok enough with the spoilers. It's enough to say that the titans and Gaia (or Geea) the mother of all the gods and titans join forces with Kratos in an attempt to dethrone Zeus. So, hop on your flaming Pegasus and go to the Sisters of Fate that will make you turn back time to the moment when Zeus fooled you and drained your power.
