About This Game
God of War is an action-adventure video game distributed by Sony Computer Entertainment in 2005 for PlayStation 2. The game narrates the adventures of Kratos, a Spartan general in the service of the gods of Greek mythology.
The development revolves around the idea of Kratos’ hybris (excess) in rebelling against the gods and his own destiny, and the nemesis to which he is subjected, thus being in line with classical Greek literature. However, in this case, Kratos’ hybrid is not only not punished, but it supposes him a victory and a greater destiny than he himself had conceived.
God of War takes place in an alternative version of Ancient Greece, where there are mythological beings such as gods or titans. With the exception of flashbacks, the events take place between the games Chains of Olympus (2008) and Ghost of Sparta (2010). There are six locations to explore, the Aegean Sea or the city of Athens being real and the Desert of Lost Souls, the Temple of Pandora, the Underworld and a small scene on Mount Olympus fictitious.
