Game description: In God of War, the dark world of Greek mythology comes to life right before your eyes. As you take the role of Kratos, a story unfolds with various plot twists and multiple endings that take you through traps, stunts, and puzzles. With a deep combat system built around double chain blade weapons, the game places you in a variety of environments, in which you must fight challenging enemies, swing on ropes, scale mountain cliffs, swim through rivers, and slide down zip lines.
God of War is a single player game that features a third-person perspective view with a fixed camera. The player controls the character Kratos, a Spartan warrior in the service of the Olympian Gods in a mixture of combat, both normal and quick time, with platforming and puzzle game elements. The player guides the protagonist through a long series of tests, trials and mazes to achieve goals. The game is loosely based on Greek mythology, and is set in Ancient Greece.

The entire game was played at 2x Native Resolution, with Shade Boost, FXAA and FX Shader options all enabled, at a solid 60FPS (with very rare drops) in DX11 Hardware Mode. The game is fully playable, and all the Bonus features you unlock after completing the game work. NOTE : Shadows on Kratos and enemies cannot be seen.
