Review: Clash of the Titans

Subtitle: 
Didn't Kratos kill all the Greek gods?
thumbnail_summary: 
<p> I really wanted to love Clash of the Titans. Looking at trailers beforehand, I saw a hack n&rsquo; slash title that clearly borrowed ideas from God of War, added more weapons and more enemies from Greek Mythology. However, it&rsquo;s generally not a good sign when a movie tie-in game misses the movie&rsquo;s release date. It&rsquo;s also not a good sign when the game releases late and there are still numerous rough edges that should have been addressed by the Game Republic team.</p>

Subtitle: 
It would be called "James Cameron's Left 4 Aliens," but there were copyright issues.

<p> When reviewing a game, it can be really tempting to describe it as Other Game 1 + Other Game 2. Fallout 3 is just Oblivion plus S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Mass Effect 2 is basically Gears of War with dialog trees, Starcraft is Command and Conquer plus Koreans&hellip;you get the picture. But even though it&rsquo;s easy and fun to do reviews this way, most people try to avoid it, as it&rsquo;s generally considered unprofessional. Generally.</p>
