    Best two PS2 action games of 2005 face off!

    Alright, well you've probably guessed, Devil May Cry 3 and God of War are most likely the best 2005 action game. I know its still pretty early in the year but for the sake of discussion, we'll just talk about these 2 games in particular b/c they were both released around the same time.

    Anyway, after reading several reviews, a lot of ppl said that God of War surpassed DMC3 in many ways, mostly b/c of its originality.

    However, DMC3 still has Dante and his badassness. But thats only my opinion that Dante's a hell of a lot cooler than Krato.

    So what do you think? Vote for your favorite ps2 action game of 2005! :clap:

    GoW because: Nudity in the first few minutes of the game. At least two different scenes. Also because I didn't bother looking at DMC3, I don't do sequels.

    So you base taste off intro movies? Jeez.

    Devil May Cry 1 was decent. Nothing original, the main thing going for it was the coolness factor. Second one was mediocre, and although I havn't played the third one yet, I doubt it will be that impressive.

    MGS3 is tactical espionage action, not straight action
    DUHUH

    God of War

    I can't stand Dante and DMC1 had the most appaling story ever

    appaling story + pointless annoying "badass" = yawn

    Yup. The storyline is pretty weak. It just seems to be an excuse for Dante to have a variety of powers.

    no i dont base my opinions of a game on the intro movie/trailers. it just gives ppl a taste of what the game is like. I mean thats what they are for right?

    DMC3 is great b/c it has a lot of variety. I mean when could you beat dozens of demons with a freaking demonic electric guitar? And theres different charcter builds/paths that you can choose for Dante (gunslinger, swordmaster, ect.) making the replay better.

    God of War is lacking a little bit of variety b/c you just use like the blades of chaos for almost the whole game.

    And who cares about nudity? If you want that, theres tons of it online.

    Buttt the chains of chaos are so fun! you don't need anything else! and you do get that axe at somepoint, which is always good for cutting the baddies in half.

    one main set of weapons do get boring at times

    im not saying that God of War is a bad game. Its a great game imo.

    But I'm just saying that its not the best b/c it lacks some of the good elements that DMC3 has.

    Also DMC3 is not a sequel, its a prequel to the first game. The creators were to horrified of another sequel b/c the first sequel was really really bad.

    Well going on the basis of what my sister says (she played both) ill go with GoW. She says DMC3 is a fun but GoW is just better.


    i have no opinion as i haven't played either, yet.

    I plan on getting GOW. I have a few friends who have played it and insist it is the best game they have ever played on a Playstation, let alone just comparing it to DMC.

    Later on in the game when you get 100+ hit combos and cool magic, GoW is just a more brutal and fun game.

    Since Mortal Kombat we know that Voilence = Fun. So there!

    There should have been a 'Neither' option in the poll.
