Is The Story Of God Of War Worth… Reading?

Is The Story Of God Of War Worth… Reading?

Fortunately, you can determine that for yourself. Not by judging the cover of the novelisation of the PlayStation video game, but by reading the first chapter of the God of War book, now online and freely available to read.

Sony’s offering up the first 17 pages of Matthew Stover and Robert E. Vardeman’s text-based take on the adventures of Kratos, which ships in paperback form on May 25. If you prefer your retold entertainment more passively delivered, opt for the audio book version, which ships at the same time. Or, if you’re more of an ebook person and want to brag about having God of War on your Kindle, you have that option too.

  • “God of War is a work of fiction. Names, places, and incidents
    either are products of the author’s imagination
    or are used fictitiously.”

    A good start so far, glad they cleared that up.

  • The god of war story isn’t so bad for an action game of its kind, but i doubt it would be any good without QTE decapitations.

  • personally i like the idea of a novel. There are certain things in books that you just can’t convey in a game.

    That being said, i’m sure there will even be some inconsistencies in the book that may make it an interesting read.
