If you played god of war 1 and 2 then you know what to expect from the third god of war game. Story picks up where it left off on god of war 2, and this time Kratos goes to mount olympus to finish off zeus once and for all and the other gods of course or anyone that stands in his way.

game play consist of button sequences and button mashing type, when you fight a boss or an enemy and he is weak enough you have to press the button as it appears on the screen for example x,o etc. you do get a few new weapons in the game which is nice and different from the previous god of war games. Game play is about the same as you can expect it to be and this game is really violent, bloody, and has a lot of gore which I loved about it.

Graphics are great and so are the visuals in the game, controls are responsive in the game as well. But I did have trouble sometimes double jumping in the game,again though you gotta time it and do it right if not you fall to your death.

the interaction in the game is still there dealing with puzzles and everything including the boss battles, but i kind of felt it better in the second god of war game. where to you fight icarus , the ones with the wings and sorry if my spelling is not correct. you punching him where you two guys are fighting and falling at the same time, I thought wow this is great and to me was really interactive.

But again that is just my opinion, and that is how I felt about that. Anyway hope my review of god of war 3 helps in some way, puzzles are not that hard to figure out in god of war 3 but took me some time to actually figure out. you just got to really pay close attention to it, but you will eventually get it.

So like I said hope this review helps you in some way in deciding on playing god of war 3 or buying it, I did and finished it and was not disappointed not in the least.

There are two things that made this game great for me. First, the fighting is unbelievably exciting, and beautiful to look at, it's like fireworks going off. Technically this is a way better game on the PS3 than the PS2, better visuals and mechanics give the weapons a real punch. Secondly, I'm fascinated by the Kratos character. He is the angriest, meanest and most vicious s.o.b. on the planet, and that is what makes him so interesting. Why are you so angry Kratos? This is a fighting game so if you are playing it for the dialogue or the story you are wasting your time, but I admit I found the mythology stuff interesting. I would buy this game because you are going to want to play it two or three times and show it to your friends when they come over.

God of War 3 is the conclusion of Greek anti-hero Kratos' quest for vengeance. I'd go into the story, but if you've played the previous titles you already know it, and if you haven't I'd have to start from the beginning since GoW3 leaves some gaps and may leave new-comers to the series a little lost. But missing some of those plot details should not interfere too much with you being able to enjoy the amazing action in this awesome game.

The first area of the game you're thrown into is incredible. It won't take long before you're squaring off against very cool giant horse-crab monsters. After being sent down to Hades not too long after, I did get a bit of a been-there-done that feeling, but it was still very enjoyable. Sure it was pretty standard GoW action, but even at it's worst God of War is lots of fun.
Then I got to the Hades boss battle. Incredible. It really keeps new momentum going, and reminds you that the development team can still suck you in to it's proven game-play formula and pull a few new tricks out for you to enjoy.
In fact, it felt like boss battles in this game play a bigger role than in previous ones. There's more big fights this time around, and none of them feel repetitive or boring, and each bring little twists that mixes things up and keeps the action feeling fresh and intense.

On the flip side, the puzzles felt like they took a bit more of a back seat this time around. Despite this shift there are still a few creative scenarios thrown at you that will have to pausing while you try and put the pieces together in your head.

The prominent Quick Time Events have not only made a return but have been improved, which was nice to see.

The minute I heard about the God of War 3 Ultimate Edition's upcoming release, I knew I had to get it.

I love the God of War saga. The graphics, the gameplay and the story are balanced so incredibly well, the formula is perfect and they were able to keep that balance through the trilogy (or quadrology if you include Chains of Olympus on the PSP).

The box it came in is very well done. I love the minimalist, almost all black, approach they did with Kratos' face on all sides.

Pandora's box is nicely detailed though made of plastic, nicely done. Felt lined inside with a hidden compartment. A small tab on the edge of the fake inside base would reveal a second compartment.

The postcard sized hardcover art book is a 'cute' little bonus. Cute I say because I was hoping there would be MORE! The art of the GOW saga, concept and final arts are mind blowing amazing and simply gorgeous. I was hoping there would be more pages to it.

With the Ultimate Edition comes 4 audio collections for download. Complete soundtracks of the 3 GOW games and 7 heavy metal tracks inspired by the game. The score of the saga adds so much to the feel and emotion of the game...GREAT bonus!

The downloadable documentaries are nice to watch. It is so nice to see the faces of the people, the company that put together this amazing game. With all the ups and downs they went through putting it together. The 'voice acting' chapter was very neat. Finally got to see Kratos' voice in the flesh....NOT what I was expecting! :P

The game itself is just gorgeously done and very well executed. They did make the gameplay slightly easier and simpler to pick up compared the previous games, probably for the new gamers of the GOW saga.
