God of War III
My favourite game of all time.
There's a reason why this is the most critically acclaimed and best selling (4.1m) hack n' slash game ever... It's a stunningly brilliant game in every aspect! The story is absolutely brilliant, I love the God of War series' take on Greek mythology, and the characters, relationships, plot-twists all make for an interesting and exciting story. The gameplay has been perfected, combat is smooth, responsive, varied, epic and most importantly FUN. The graphics are in a class of their own as far as consoles go, also the art style is just as impressive. The sound is brilliant, voice acting is perfect, the original music score is masterful and enemy/environmental etc sounds are all flawless. The game has great replay value too, is takes around 11/12 hours to beat first time and you'll want to beat it again simply because of how awesome it is, then you have to play through a couple more times to get 100% trophies, then there's finding all the hidden treasures/Godly possessions and playing through again with the 7 available costumes. There's also the challenges of Olympus to beat and custom arena fights to play around with. If you haven't already bought this game what are you waiting for! BUY THIS GAME! (make sure you also buy the GOW: Collection and the upcoming GOW: Origins collection.)
God of war 3 + play-station 3 + people = :) :]
This game is just awesome it is very good.Everytime i beat the game I play it over and over again.I still have till the day it first hit the shelf.You will love it.
it was the best game i've ever played!
this game is an amazing battle between gods one man becomes a god by fighting to the death with each individual god!
it took me about 7 hours to play it and i have never played a god of war game until now. this is in one of my favorite games library because this game was so good.it was that good it made me buy the god of war collection for the ps3. all i can say is buy and you'll love it
God of War lll enough said
this is probably the bloodiest, goriest, most epicly awesome game i have ever played the kills the action, the fighting, the game, Everything!
Good, could've been better.
Let me start off saying that this game is worth it, and worth the money. This game instantly blew me away with an amazing cutscene, and straight to epic gameplay. God of War 3 is one of the best games created, but doesnt have a high replay value.
Graphics: God of War looks INCREDIBLE, from the texture and details in the background, to the sweat on Kratos. Everything looks great and feels smooth.
Storyline: I wasn't too impressed with the storyline in this game. The plot is killing all the gods/titans to get your revenge, it is exciting and fun, but incomplete. If they make a God of War 4, they need to add something else.
Gameplay: The gameplay is free flowing and smooth. The controls are easy to use, but not original at all.The best part about this game is the boss battles,some may challenge you,but are rewarding when you smash faces in and cut chests open. There are lots of puzzles to keep you entertained, but may get boring after awhile.
I recommend renting, not buying.
A must-have for any action gaming fan
I have played and beaten every GoW game that has come out so far. The experience you get from playing as Kratos is, to me, unmatchable by any other game in this genre. All action games i have played since beating the first GoW games i have compared to these games's combat system. These games, in my opinion, set the bar for what a good action game should have: intense combat and boss battle scenes, a strong character who you can want to side with, and good old-fashioned blood and guts. And this title was the best of them all, having everything we expected. The ending i'll say was not as good as i had hoped and the overall game was a bit shorter than its preceding titles, but God of War III is still a must have for the hardcore gamer. I have beaten the game 16 times, gotten all the DLC, and achieved my first platinum trophy with this game, and now it will forever sit on my shelf, so take my word for it and do yourself a favor: if you don't have this game yet, GET IT.
GOW Old School
I read about GOW when it was three years in it's infancy. I watched original model designs and concept art very closely. I could tell from early on that it was the game for me. Zelda will always be number one for me , but when it comes to number two I have to say GOW has me hooked. I've been gaming longer than most of you have probably been alive. I remember pong paddles and Crystal Castle. I remember when 8 bit was cutting edge tech. When I got my hands on GOW for the first time I knew it was gold. Imagine my surprise and zeal when the developers try another one, and now follow it up with a third. So your dang right I shelled out 106 and some change for the super pack. It's already paid. All I have to do is walk in there and get it and Pandoras box. And you know what's gonna go inside that right.===<< So have an ill time all you gamers cause GOW is gonna make the US stop moving for a couple days. Ya'll know your gonna call in sick or take the next day off when you play. Peace
a great end to a great series
okay before i start with this review i have to say if you have not played the originals pick them up first so you can appreciate the game to its full potential. lets start with the story. it starts off directly after god of war 2 which has you climbing up to mount olympus to kill zeus for revenge. the story has plenty of interesting turns and is overall just amazing.! 10/10 graphics. its always nice when ps3 exclusives push its hardware to its full potential which multi-platform games are unable to do. now this is up to debate but i feel its safe to say that this game is the most well designed games ever. 10/10 controls gameplay etc. The god of war series is the literal foundation for which the majority hack and slash games base themselves upon and truthfully they left that relatively the same which is wonderful. the puzzles this time are still awsome much more well done this time around. 10/10 sound. the music and sounds of the enviorment are MINDBLOWING and fit with the game perfectly.
God of War 3 Good or Bad?
I would have to say that first of all God of War 3 is by far the best in the series. Great graphical detail, player friendly controls, and amazing game play. There are many great things about this game though as every game, there are flaws. Unlike God of War 2, you are unable to continue additional playthroughs with the same weapons. Every time you start over you must re-upgrade and unlock the weapons. Secondly the game was very short for me. I had gotten the game when it released and beat it in the same day; it took me just under 8 hours on the normal difficulty. I've replayed the game over the past few weeks to get a closer look at everything put into the environment so I could give a review that was fair to the pro's and con's of the game. Overall I would suggest that any PS3 owner purchase or at least "Rent" or "Borrow" this game to experience its amazing quality. If you’re a true gamer who knocks out games in no time, rent it. If you take a while, buy it. Hope my review helped.
