God of War III Preview 0

 The countdown has begun to the eagerly anticipated launch of God of War lll in March 2010.  The story picks up exactly where the predecessor leaves off, so there is no catching up to be done. Kratos, with his Titan army, are battling to eradicate the four remaining Gods, namely Hades, Zeus, Helios and Hermes. This story of revenge gives plenty of scope for bloody battles against an onslaught of enemies. Sony have admitted that their biggest challenge was living up to the hype and expectation, ...

Gorgeous, hilariously savage, but lacking any true innovation 0

Let it be known that after the release of God of War III, the practice of upgrading graphics and carrying over the same tired mechanics shall be known as... SUCCESS! At least as far as the market is concerned. Yes, this journey with Kratos through the trenches of days-old warfare is a beautiful one, but the same frustrations from the first two games in terms of combat and mechanics (quick-time events are lazy gameplay tricks and need to be innovated on before... oh, it's too late) have been carr...

God of War III Review 0

God of War III marks the end(?) of Kratos’ revenge saga. The only game of the series not on the PS2 (unless you count Chains of Olympus on the PSP) features a dramatic upgrade in visuals, but gameplay-wise isn’t much different, and that isn’t really a bad thing. I will admit upfront I haven’t played the second game in the series, because the first game frustrated me to the point I almost never wanted to play a God of War game again. I’m sure glad I brought myself to play the third installment, ...

Kratos is out for blood... again. 0

The God of war series (for me) has been an interesting one. On one hand I absolutely love the first one from top to bottom. But I found the second one a little cluttered, with too many mindless box/switch puzzles. So where does the first one lie? well, let me first say that I really hoped that the final installment ( as far as I know) of the Gow trilogy, would recapture the amazing pacing and balance of the original. And GoW III does just that, to a certain extent. My absolute favorite thing abo...

"I'm Kratos, Destroyer of Gods, and my game is pretty good too!!" 0

“Chaos will reign supreme". The tag-line of the God of War finale says it all, within mere minutes of playing, the world is launched into utter chaos. Which can only mean ONE thing, Kratos Is back, and his mission is far from over. But is Kratos’ 3-game vengeance fulfilled or is he only a mortal man?Story:What is arguably one of the more creative and entertaining stories of the last couple of generations, GoW III continues Kratos’ tale and finally ends his bloody rampage and quest for Zeus’s blo...

For a God of War fan, this latest game is worth it so much 0

  Sony's God of War series has always served the company well: its high production values, epic scope and simple but fun gameplay have made it extremely popular among casual and more enthousiastic gamers alike. After the acclaim the first God of War received, many clamored for a sequel on the Playstation 3, but SCEA decided to make God of War II a final tour-de-force for the Playstation 2, a swan song, if you will. While that game was loved by lots of people, everyone still wanted to ...

GOW 3 review: applesauce hj. 0    I had never played a God of War game before this one, so I didn’t know exactly what to expect when I cracked this sucker open. What I ended up getting was game play that felt like a modern take on Zelda and Gauntlet and a plot that felt like it was created by a think tank of 13 year old boys who can’t watch a UFC bout or look at the woman’s section of a JC Penney catalog without shaming themselves in the eyes of their lord.      The game p...

quick review 0

i felt that god of war 3 was the best in the series, it looked amazing sounded great and played pretty good too. but what it came down to me was it was more of the same and i would have liked to see them try and put a fresh spin on it somehow. i really like how they added the buttons on the side of the screen that matches up with the button pad, simple touch but it made those Quick time events feel smoother. overall the game is great and if u own a ps3 its a must have but if you have played the ...

God of Bore 3 0

The opening sequence of God Of War 3 really sets the scene for the most visually stunning and techically astounding game of this generation. Sadly however this is the only area in the game of such scale and genuine innovation as the game quickly falls into the same formula of it's predecessors, which was fine for two incredibly polished and hardware pushing PS2 title but for the third time round on some much more powerful hardware, one can't help but feel a little dissapointed at what the game a...

A cinematic thrill ride that never misses a step 0

                It is always difficult to keep a franchise fresh and exciting from sequel to sequel without drastically changing the formula. What were once game play innovations are now commonplace in a sea of lookalike titles that attempt to capture the magic of their competition. Yet, the risks may be too great in reinventing the formula, and the legion of fans that once fell in love with the first game may not take too kindly to an overhaul of their favorite series.  The original God of War...

Definition of badass! 2

 God of War 3 is hands down one of most amazing, epic action games ever made and it will stay at top of that list for some time, since i don't see any game/studio being able to mimic some of amazing set pieces done in this game for few years at least. Officially God of war 3 had huge budget, 44 million $ to be precise and it shows. For most part game is absolutely stunning looking and nothing comes close to it on console market. Shear amount of scale, combined with incredible texture detai...

By the Books Polished Beauty 0

If God of War (GoW) III could be summed up in one sentence it would be the ones titling this review, but it probably can't, so here goes: GoW III is like a dim friend who makes you feel good about yourself and takes you to exciting places you don't go to alone, but when you do hang out you can't help thinking you should be more mature and stop hanging out with them lest you brain become as poorly nourished as their own. In other words this is a God of War game that plays just like a PS2 game but...

Hack and Slash and More of the Same 0

So, GoW3. Yeah, not much to say. It's a hack and slasher with Epic (and infested with quicktime events) boss fights. I dont really enjoy hack and slash games, but there was so much hype with God of War 3, so I went and rented it. Well it was incredibly good looking and had a scale I have never seen in games, all running beautifully on the PS3. Thats the good. Here's the bad: Hacky Slashy, boring boring boring. And there's Quicktime events, what the fuck is with quicktime events (granted they mak...
