    From Where???
    there is a new castlevania game about to be released that will allow 4 player fun and its a PSN only title. i can grab the name for you later when i find my ps magazine.

    zombie nation is really fun. its fast paced and full of shooting, but it can get repetitive and hard to find random players online. although if you buy it let me know because i'm always up for a co-op game.

    alien breed is great fun but it involves more exploration than fast paced action. it is also an older game and i've never found a random player for online co-op.

    if you like zombie nation there are other dual stick hack/slash shooters which i can recommend.

    i also picked up dungeon hunter: alliance. it can get a bit repetitive and its perhaps not as fast paced as you are looking for.

    some good PSN titles were recommended to me here: http://gbatemp.net/t295728-dead-nation-lik...ne-co-op-titles

    let me know what else you find, i'm always looking for a good buy!

    Unless you're talking about an actually new Castlevania game I don't know about...then you're talkin' about Harmony of Despair.
    Released on the 360 ages ago. PSN finally gets it with the first DLC map and 2 DLC characters free. Local coop is new, and 6 player online (is excessive) and 2 higher then the 360 allows. So basically, it's the same game just a little cheaper on PSN, lol.

    Wouldn't you like to know
    If I recall correctly Metal Gear is relatively slow paced with a lot of sneaking around and Final Fantasy games aren't really fast paced (except for maybe during battles) but you don't actually hack 'n slash in most of em or all of em. I'm sure there are plenty of hack 'n slash games out there but I'd stick with GoW personally.

    Dante's Inferno is also a really good hack and slash, and in some cases it is better than God of War, but both games play exactly the same minus a few differences.

    Yeah Dante's Inferno will give you plenty of hack n slash considering how long it takes to kill monsters in that game lol. I'm definitely trying to find some more of this genre as well. Dead Island is kinda hack and slashy with some RPG elements and zombies thrown in if you want to try that.
