Did You Know?

Trivia

Had David Jaffe (director of the first game) made this game, it would have been very different. The idea he had was that Zeus would have been defeated in the first few minutes of the game. In the power vacuum that would follow the gods of other mythologies would have appeared to fill the space left by the loss of Zeus. Kratos would have used Thor's hammer as a weapon. The ending would have shown the Three Wise Men (Kings) following a star. See more »

Goofs

All the Gods and Titans are called by their Greek names, as this game is based on Greek mythology. Therefore, Hercules should be called "Heracles". Hercules is the Roman alternate. While factually this may be the case, the developers chose to use the name Hercules as apposed to Heracles simply because Hercules is known more commonly by the general public. See more »

Epic but flawed
15 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Alright,so i received this game on the 12th of March,5 days before release(long story) so i have had ample time to play the game so i am going to summarize it in three words:

Epic but flawed

When i popped the disc and started it up, i was expecting over-the-top action,massive scope and all the bloody gore that can be stuffed into one disc,and for the most part this game lives up to my expectations.the game is massive and the gameplay and graphics are nothing short of awe-inspiring.

Story: if you have or have not played the previous GoW titles you will be swiftly brought up to speed with the events in the game and the plot is fairly straight-forward. Kratos wants revenge and will stop at nothing to get it, but then again i hardly doubt that the people that are waiting for this are expecting a deep storyline ala Mass Effect 2.

Graphics: in a word,beautiful.the game made my jaw literally drop! problem is,when there is lighting this game really shines and shows what this game can really do,but whoever decided that a mass portion of this game should be placed in the dark,should be lined up against a wall and shot.the game looks just the same in the dark and there is nothing that really stands out,but when this game wants to,it will blow you away.

Gameplay: this is the sole reason why God of War 3 is one of the most anticipated games of the year,maybe even decade.this game yet again sets the bar for hack-and-slashers that all so blatantly copy this great game.The problem? the platforming and puzzles. yes it is a change of pace but this game simply was not designed for climbing and carefully jumping from one platform to another, but really im nitpicking right now.

verdict? it is a great game if you are into hack-and-slashers with a great soundtrack that puts movie scores to shame.if you can overlook slight problems then you are in for a great time and i would definitely recommend this game.buy now!

9.0/10
