The treasure trove of Persian mythology contains within it some of humanity's oldest and most profound myths. Garshasp is a symbolic recreation of the spirituality, grandeur and mythical atmosphere of ancient Persia, derived from the epic poem Garshap Naame written by Asadi Tousi [Firdausi's mentor and professor]. Most of the images and scenes depicted in this game are drawn from or based directly upon historical resources and ancient stone carvings found throughout Iran, and a chain of thoughts that goes back thousands of years to the dawn of Western and Eastern civilizations alike. Garshasp is a 3rd-person action adventure video game, based on ancient Persian mythology. The game is based on the epic battles of the mythological hero, Garshasp, in the ancient lands against the evil monsters. The main mechanics of the game revolves around melee combat, puzzle solving and exploration.
The game is a decent God of War imitation, but not worth the €8 IMO. There are some dumb situations in the game which will make you feel like you're stuck (for example, the finishing combos - you need to press the arrow keys in the direction of the markers on the screen which is never explained in the game itself). The graphics are good and the gameplay is rather monotonous with only a handful of different monsters. X360 controller support is very nice and handy. A playthrough lasts for around 4 hours.
