by HelloMortals 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.)

Rated 10 out of 10 by lumpy 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.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Baladas 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.

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
Rated 8 out of 10 by meow 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by gamer88 The God of Games
From the moment I ended God of War II i knew that God of War III would be epic on all levels so when i saw the preview of the game i nearly passed out from how awesome it looked. Kratos is and forever will be the greatest character ever created. He is a legend. Santa Monica did not toy around with God of War III, they put everything they possibly could into this grand finale. Whether you have played the games or not, the opening cutscene provides a mosaic highlight reel of the previous two games. God of War III gives gamers a true to life feeling. You feel like Kratos. Swinging the Blades of Exile, Kratos slices his way through everybody in his way. Oh and don't worry there are gallons of blood to be poured out in fact one of the trophies you get is to cover Kratos in 500 buckets of blood. Whether you are a fan of the Zeus and the Gods or Gaia and the Titans, it doesn't matter because Kratos wants to kill them all. So have fun in this epic game. You will not be disappointed!
Rated 10 out of 10 by JDM4Life An absolute must own title if you have a PS3
I'll be honest here. When thinking of purchasing a game this week, I had 3 choices that I really caught my attention. Between Final Fantasy XIII, God of War III or Assassin's Creed II. I'm sure all 3 games are very good, however I bought into the hype and chose God of War III. Immediately playing it when I got home, I was stunned at how marvelous the graphics, cinematic, sound, controls and gameplay were. You WILL NOT want to stop playing. This game is not only meticulously well done, the storyline, in which you control Kratos, will have you glued to the seat in front of your tv set. I have not played God of War I or II and that was not a problem whatsoever. I would say after that I have played this game, that I will surely be going back to get the previous titles. You are faced with many challenging bosses in this game as well as puzzles to solve. The trophies in this game are challenging and not the types in games where you can achieve 100% of them in just 1 or 2 days.
