God of War II is an action adventure game based on Greek mythology following the adventures of Kratos.
Although it's labeled as number II, it's actually chronologically the fifth installment of the God of War and the gameplay follows the same format as the preceding versions. The game consists of both puzzle and and platform adventure elements but God of War II introduces new weapons such as The Spear of Destiny and Blade of Olympus.
Other new additions include new relics such as Atlas Quake and a new special ability for Kratos known as Rage of the Titans. Health and Magic enhancements have been reintroduced and a revised Challenge mode has been introduced featuring "Arena of Fates" where you can create your own battles.
God of War II is one of the most successful God of Wars ever released and fans of the game won't be disappointed.
