God of War III = Masterpiece.
on 24 May 2011
Graphics = Stunningly beautiful. Amazing lighting, textures, art-style, scale, animations and amazing attention to detail. All that with use of proper object-based motion-blur, MLAA for minimal jaggies, depth of field and fantastic volumetric lighting running at around 60fps makes this undoubtedly still the best looking console game out now. 10/10
Gameplay = The gameplay has been tweaked and perfected from previous games in the GOW series. There's four excellent main weapons at your disposal, each with its own unique combat style and magic attacks to prevent the game feeling repetitive. Also, there's three awesome sub-weapons to use. Gameplay is smooth, dynamic, responsive and extremely satisfying. 10/10
Sound = The orchestral score throughout the game is phenomenal, voice-acting is top notch, enemies/weapons/environment all sound incredible. 10/10
Content = God of War III takes around 11-12 hours to complete first time, once the single player is done you have the combat arena challenges to play through and you can create custom combat arena games. There's also hours of 'The making of God of War III' videos to watch. In terms of replayability you'll have to play through at least 2/3 times to get the most out of it. (I've played it 7 times now! I just can't get enough of this outstanding game.) 10/10
The story in God of War III is amazing but to fully appreciate it you must've played GOW 1&2 first. My advice to anyone who owns a PS3 is to get the God of War Collection (especially if you haven't already played GOW 1&2) and God of War III, even if you don't particularly like action-adventure/hack 'n' slash games you will not regret it, it's a mind-blowing masterpiece that no-one should miss out on.
