God of War III Review

 

Saying God of War III is the biggest PS3 exclusive of the year is an understatement. There's a lot riding on God of War III as it literally has the fate of the PS3 in its hands.

With everything working so well, you would think that this game was perfect. Well sadly, it's not. At about 8 and a half hours of game time in my first playthrough, I found myself done with the game in a day. The game sucks you in perfectly to keep...

Sony has been on a pretty amazing roll. In the span of just over a year, the company's first-party lineup for the PlayStation 3 has included the likes of Killzone 2, inFamous, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, MAG and...

God of War III is like James Cameron's Avatar. Odd comparison, I know, but hear me out for a second. Avatar, the movie, was a technological achievement more than a triumph in storytelling. We'd all seen the story before, in movies like Pocahontas and...

Even a God Can Bleed

Nothing here is going to feel foreign or surprising to fans of the series

Brutal, brutal, brutal. This is the most distinct impression God of War III will leave on the player when they have played through the most recent tale of Kratos battle with the Gods of Olympus. GOW III is certainly a game that refuses to shy away from...

Vengeance is pretty much the only thing on Kratos mind. You can probably guess what he is going to do to the Greek gods he holds accountable for the death of his wife and child. It's going to involve a lot of shouting and gratuitous amounts of blood....

Right off the bat it is crystal clear the story is geared towards God of War trilogy veterans more so than newcomers. Sure, there is the title sequence recapping key events from Kratos' past, but it comes across as more of a killing montage of the...

Stunning visuals ; Killer gore ; Fast fluid action ; Opening level is a sight to behold

Jumping is flawed ; Design is weaker in some areas ; Light on story

The jump mechanic is another thing entirely. Never in my life have I played a game where I have died so many times while jumping. To say I died ten times more while jumping then during all my boss battles would be a conservative understatement. I would...

The best action-platform game of the year and possibly of all time has arrived. Kratos is back and Olympus is in his path. God of War 3 is here!

Blades of Chao…I mean, Exile

God of War polished to perfection, great combat you love with even more epic boss battles

There\'s no new groundbreaking mechanics, story ends a little too mushily

The game begins with a stylish picture-silhouette recap of the franchise, and then thrusts you into the action. Though the story isn't very important in action games like this, Santa Monica does a decent job. As Kratos fights through his journey, he...

Nice review. This game would totally be in my collection if I owned a PS3... Sadly, I have to settle for Dante's Inferno and Darksiders on 360. Post a Comment

It's not perfect, but it's a satisfying experience from start to finish. Amazing to look at, fun to play and a great ending.

The word “epic” gets tossed around far too liberally in describing videogames. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to read almost any title's press release or back-of-the-box description, and not find the adjective snuck in their somewhere to beef up its...

There's little to complain about in Kratos' swan song, but as with any game that's on its second or third sequel, there's a definite decrease in the wow factor. The term “God of War clone” gets used quite a bit these days (I'm looking at you, Dante's...
