God of War 2

I finally finished God of War 2, and just in time for the art show at Nucleus that will be celebrating the release of a book featuring concept art from the game.  The show is this Saturday at 7pm.  More info here.

I was actually quite sad finishing the game, since it’s going to be quite a while until I find another simple story-based action game to really get into.  While some developers seem to see limitations as a weakness, this is one crew that seemed to understand how to use it as a strength.  Even though it’s a game for a "previous generation" console, it looks and feels infinitely more imaginative and engaging than much of its next-gen competition.  Kudos to the makers of the game, and I’m looking forward to meeting the artists at the show…
