Shadow of the Colossus had a bad framerate in a lot of places. Doesn't stop it from being one of the greatest games ever made. In other words, sure, Gods could probably be better with smoother scrolling - but it really doesn't matter that much for a LOT of people, and they can forgive them for it because the game itself is so good.
If you have that big of a problem with the scrolling in Gods, you're just not interested in the game itself at all. But don't come and call it a bad game, 'cause it isn't.
