I don't pull any punches with bad games, but I do believe it giving credit where credit is due.  And Sony did a phenomenal job with God of War 2.

God of War 2 completely blew my mind. They set the bar really high with the first one, and I really didn't see them going over it, but the second God of War almost makes the original look bad. I loved the boss battles, which the game had plenty of.

Critic would you say God of War 2 is better than Resident Evil 4. Just wondering.

Are you going to drop the first game's grade down to an 'A' since the sequel surpasses it?

Well, the first game is still an A+ compared to other games on PS2, which is how he grades, so I don't see that happening.

I was put off God Of War by my copy of it not working and after taking it back, I never bothered with another copy, but it looks like I will have to try the sequal and maybe go back to first game too.

Superjay: Good question about if God of War 2 is better than Resident Evil 4.  I'm been wrestling with that one in my head.  Since I'm a fan of occult games, I'd probably give the edge to RE4, but they are both of the highest quality.

Michael: Will I lower the original GoW's grade because of this?  I probably could, but I really don't see the point. I'd rather give GoW2 an A++.  What do you guys think?

I think Resident Evil 4 is the better game.  Sure it was the 4th game in the series, but what game out there was really like it (or is like it for that matter).  RE4 was more revolutionary IMHO.  GOWII is still great, but I don't find it to be THAT much different than the already outstanding God of War.

Also don't put God of War II as A++ that would just look tacky.  The way I see it...there are different degrees of letter grades.  In high school a 97 was considered an A+, and so was a 99.  So while one grade is technically better, in the end the both equal the same thing.  There is nothing wrong with letting the reader figure that out on their own.  Just my 2 cents on the matter.

Giving a game an 'A++'?  Critic, I think that's a bad idea.  It kinda makes a mockery of the whole grading system.  Pretty soon, we'd see 'A+ to the 12 power'.
