It's the first 30 minutes of the game so if you want to go into it fresh then I wouldn't.
Saying that, I actually did watch it and it looks absolutely fanfeckingtasic!

IF YOU'RE A FAN PLEASE, BEST NOT TO READ. GETTING A LOAD OFF WHILE ATTEMPTING TO EXPLAIN WHY. UNLESS YOU'RE VERY SECURE IN YOUR OWN VIEWS, PASS THIS ONE BY. PLEASE. NO OFFENSE MEANT!
Again if you get offended by the idea of other peoples vastly differing opinions - look away now! (I personally probably would be at this point)
Got to be honest, I still don't get what people see in God of War. Yes it's pretty but it genuinely couldn't get any more linear, scripted or on rails. It's 1 path with a few turns and pretty wallpaper. Yes that can be used very well but it's not my thing here. To me, in this context, freedom is needed. It's a smart way to make a gorgeous game but with that considered it's not that impressive. To my mind Trine 2 is better looking in that sense.
It has its crazy gore and at certain moments that's great ie. when you see a blade cut a direct gash, but those most impressive bits are all cutscenes or scripted QTE's, slow mo etc. Most of the time it's just silly huge blood sprays and no actual visible damage. How much blood does Kratos have in his face for instance? Magical the way it goes through his skin leaving no mark too!
I get what it's going for and I know all games have silly damage blah blah, I could just never get behind the execution(no pun intended) here. It goes for gore but then it makes it silly, there's no wounding and the blood is cartoony. It goes for gritty but then it's not. It goes for brutal hard hitting but then it ends up just slash fest. Million hits - no visible damage. 1 QTE - strangled with own organs.
If they had Kratos fighting a billion bad dudes or even just a few big dudes, with his blades literally doing what they do in the QTE's and carving a non scripted bloody path through the enemy, even if still linear to accomodate it - that'd be impressive and make for a better gameplay experience (to my mind) and a staggering tech display. As it is, it's like Street Fighter (mash mash mash - no damage) combined with Quake 2 combat (2 shots in the leg fine, 3 shots - super dead) and wrapped in a wallpaper made of everything the console can punch out.
I see endless potential but none of it used. They've got a team who could do it but can't be arsed perhaps. Instead it's like Jason and the Argonauts rewritten by people who think Hans Zimmer is the greatest composer of all time, who toss around the word "epic" and "brutal" too much and are so used to violence that killing people multiple times without them dying is the only thing that'll do.
NOTE: THIS IS SIMPLY MY HONEST PERSONAL VIEW. I COULDN'T GET INTO IT EVEN ON THE PS2, IT'S NOT FANBOY BS. IF YOU WANT CHUCK ME ANOTHER GAME SERIES NAME, I'LL RIP IT TO SHREDS IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER. (Suggestions probably guessable)
