So he's complaining about that, yet he's whoring the PR controversy machine like none other. Bros before Hos indeed.

While the reviewer is mistaken as to what exactly the trophy is given for, and I personally agree that the name of the trophy is questionable, at the end of the day the God Of War games are mature rated entertainment. To make a fuss about a trophy called "Bros before Hos" would be similar to complaining about similar jokes on Saturday Night Live....where the punch line is often rich in sarcasm and irony. Can people misunderstand the point of the reference? Sure. Getting yourself all twisted about something like that when you just got finished kicking a woman's face in rings as hollow as getting bent about a SNL race joke when you just got finished laughing at it.

Generally speaking, I don't find political correctness to be nearly as overdone as many people do, but this complaint by this particular reviewer comes off as a bit too "White Knight" and very thin on credibility. From the beginning of the series, which the reviewer claims to love, women have been treated as either sex objects or punching bags. To cry "misogyny" over a trophy name at the end of game number 5 is just ridiculous and sensationalist.

Then again, games journalism has become about as neutered a profession as possibly exists, with the possible exception of Gloria Allred's paralegals.
