Features

Features
ONLY ON THE PS3 SYSTEM - The award-winning development team leverages the processing power and technology of PLAYSTATION 3 system to make God of War III one of the most-graphically advanced next gen titles available, with even the dramatic cut screens running off the in-game engine.

GROUNDBREAKING DEPTH OF SCALE – Kratos will explore areas up to 4 times larger than those found in God of War II, as well as carve through entire armies while navigating on the back of Titans - living, moving, breathing levels as tall as the Empire State Building.

STYLIZED REALISM – Players will battle in detailed and unique 3D worlds lit by thousands of dynamic lights and textures with quadruple the resolution, which allows for realistic muscle striations, detailed facial expressions, and new heightened levels of brutality and gore.

SIGNATURE GAMEPLAY - Brutal combat, intricate puzzles, exploration of awe-inspiring worlds, and a compelling and satisfying ending to Kratos' epic story.

SOPHISTICATED STORYLINE – The God of War III storyline is the epic conclusion to the trilogy; the storyline will be told in a way that is true to traditionalist roots in Greek mythology, from moral consequences to brutal battles against the Gods.

RIDEABLE CREATURES – Several of the menacing creatures of Greek mythology in God of War III can now be manipulated against their will, as Kratos uses them to cross chasms, inflict blind rage against enemies, reveal puzzles and secrets, and as tools of complete annihilation.

NEW WEAPONS AND COMBAT SYSTEM - New deadly weapons such as the Cestus -- powerful metal gauntlets with devastating strength -- and other brutal instruments of war that will allow Kratos to learn ruthless new techniques such as grappling with enemies and launching explosive wall-to-ground attacks.

LIGHTING TECHNOLOGIES – The dynamic lighting solution employed in GOW III is only feasible through the computing power provided by the Cell SPUs.

4 out of 5 eggsVery enjoyable, if slightly flawed

Pros: I heard that this game fixed some of the flaws of the first two games, and sure enough I am enjoying this more than the previous titles. The action is fast, fun and violent. The graphics are outstanding, and really show off the power of the PS3. The story is epic, if a bit overwrought at times. The "quick time events" are relatively easy to pull off. The voice acting is really good. Mythology fans will most likely appreciate the settings.

Cons: Because of the camera, it is sometimes hard to see where to go next, or to see the ledge you are trying to jump to. The various puzzles and mini-games, while sometimes clever, really just take away from the action. I just want to slaughter monsters.

Other Thoughts: It would be great if we could have a game in this series that was just straight up action. Maybe in the next one?

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great graphics, silky smooth gameplay, superb music and an awesome voice cast.

Cons: Too short. I took my sweet time and got 10 hours out of it. Other people have gotten 7. This may not seem bad for an action game, but GOW2 took almost twice as long to complete. Still not a deal breaker though.

Other Thoughts: Definitely not for the kids lol

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Game. A must have

Pros: I've played many of the "high-end" PS3 games, and none so far comes close to GOW3.

The graphics are amazing. In the background you can see high quality animations interacting with the environment. Several scenes have Kratos with close to 40 enemies all running without any tearing or dips in the FPS.

Controls feel tight with all movement and weapons serving a purpose. I can safely say that they were not added on for some diversity. In face in the game, i was constantly switching between weapons because each has its uses and it benefits the player to change weapons. You can make it though most of the fight with the std. blades but changing weapons is easy, and it add diversity to the fights.

The audio like with the previous titles is amazing. In each scene the audio matches the tempo and environment of the game. Voice acting is also very good.

Story is tight and ties up several loose ends in the GOW world.

Cons: The only problems i had with this game are:

The titans didn't play as big a role as they should. It was expected that at the end of GOW2 and progressing into GOW3, they would be a key factor in the game. In my opinion, they were put to the side and only brought out for iconic battles.

The game isn't very challenging. Mind you, fighting specific enemies, will get you hurt the first time, but after that, its easy to deal with them. I recommend turning the difficulty up to the highest. You will die from platforming more than you will from a fight.

Mixed camera angles are very good, but for certain platforming parts of the game, it becomes horrible and you die alot because of that.

Other Thoughts: A great game with the best PS3 experience I've had ever. A must have game for any PS3 owner.

4 out of 5 eggsGood/Beautiful Game

Pros: A very nice sequal to the *** of war series(censored lol), the landscapes are very well done and the death scenes are very cool. Extremely fast pace game :)

Cons: Too Short, probably beat the game in 15 hours total time.

4 out of 5 eggsI enjoyed this title

Pros: The game is beautiful. Its an impressive feat for Sony. The gameplay is spectacular. A wonderful game to behold. Please play this game for the right price.

Cons: An egg deducted for the brevity. The game can be finished on hard in about 8 hours, maybe less.

Other Thoughts: The game can only take 10hrs to platinum if you're already familiar with the GoW interface and play this on hard. The game is a ton of fun and worth being played at some point in your PS3 library. Ideally, wait for this game to go on sale for $29 or less.

5 out of 5 eggsThe reason to buy a PS3

Pros: Great way to end the series, amazing graphics, music, sound, effects, game play, fun factor, replay value, voice acting, I could go on and on.

Cons: It ends in about 10 hours, it would be cool if it were even longer. Don't get me wrong, this is one of my all time favorite games now.

Other Thoughts: If you like action and good story telling, you need this. If you have a PS3, you need this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, best of PS3

Pros: Great everything, graphic, sound, story, control...the best game for PS3

Cons: 1. Too short. finished it in about 10 hours.
2. had system failure a couple of times: one time the door opens and it was a bottomless pit outside while it should be a hallway. one time system did not lower bars after all enemies killed. both time restart and worked fine

Other Thoughts: Played 1, 2, 3 all great games.
