Once the mighty warrior, Kratos was a slave to the gods, bound to do their savage bidding. After destroying Ares, the God of War, Kratos was granted his freedom by Zeus - and even given the ousted god"s throne on Olympus. But the other gods of the Pantheon didn't take kindly to Kratos' ascension and, in turn, conspired against him. Banished, Kratos must ally himself with the despised titans, ancient enemies of the olympians, in order to take revenge and silence the nightmares that haunt him. God of War 2 takes the video game's action to electrifying new heights, and adds ever more fascinating layers to the larger than life tale of Kratos.
