The God of War is an action packed game supported by the ages in the Greek mythology. It has been developed by the huge giant of electronics: Sony Entertainment's Santa Monica.

The God of War in based on a series of flashback from the point where the lead role leaps off a cliff into the Aegean Sea. This is an action stuffed game with the lead role defined as the captain of the Spartan army; Kratos fighting to achieve win over the Ares and the God of War. The deal between the goddess Athena and Kratos, provokes him to get into this fight to gain freedom from his memories. The game of revenge, liberty and fight for right starts and ends with the God of War.

The scenario begins wherein the princess falls for the main lead and henceforth he is subjected to imprisonment.

I think God of War is more action oriented but Prince of Persia has more puzzles and a better story.

God of War uses some of the best established characters in history. Greek Mythology is literary gold. The characters in Prince of Persia are more original, but will never be as recognizable. In a way Kratos actually suffers from this. Fallen warrior stories are entertaining and I find Kratos' story more interesting than the prince, but he'll always be overshadowed by the Gods. The prince stands out in a big fish smaller pond kind of way.
