God of War 3 review

Mar 20, 10 God of War 3 review

I can’t thing of another game which has such a jaw dropping opening scene as God of War 3

The first 30 minutes, or see if the protagonist Kratos facing hordes of Olympus gods on top of Titan – a massive climb slowly be up a mountain. Decor switches upside down and sideways as Kratos Dangles, blurs and intermittent battles on a sort of giant water horse thing headed snake. The gods defend themselves as epic, beautifully drawn enemies background of swing and swoosh in your path – the scale, ambition and imagination of Santa Monica Studios has put into this game is exciting.

The team has not made much of a departure from the Playstation 2 Two entries in the series, but it is certainly not a bad thing – what you get is one of the best action franchises of the last generation refined , redesigned and strengthened to the point of perfection. It’s just a pure joy to play.

And there are a number of reasons, for a few games feature such as a fully satisfying combat mechanic. Kratos’ extended flash knives and blow across the screen, carving and slashing hordes of enemies simultaneously. In the first wave of 20 or so enemies on screen, fighting much harder later, there is never a dull moment or repetitive attack what the game throws at you.

The control system is essentially the same as previous incarnations of the series, but they are surprisingly milder than in previous games, and that’sa good thing. Although this does not mean that the game is easier: it is still difficult in places really, even in normal difficulty mode.

Even early on when Kratos loses most of its powers, the player to his left with a surprising number of shots. As the blade attacks Kratos can be sent in an attack Catherine wheel, posting 20-odd hits on enemies nearby. During the game, the magic has been replaced by a multitude of new weapons, each have their own magic attached.

Visually, God of War 3 nearly untouchable – as last year, Uncharted 2 is not even close. The care, precision and epic scales above are staggering. It is also rich in gore, and more than the first two installments. The battles against bosses in particular are brutal grizzly new extremes. Finishing moves include tearing the bowels of centaurs, repeated, furious close-ups of knife wounds and bone cracking headbutt. Someone has even involved knives in the paste on each side of the skull of a head and break his head repeatedly into the ground.

But for all hauls grotesque macho protagonist of the game, God of War 3 sometimes has a sense of humor often missing in games of this ilk. At some point, as Kratos slides along a thin ledge of a burning building, a man so stuck on the edge of Kratos begging him to get help. When you press the button fully to help, instead Kratos crushes his head into the wall and thrown into the flames down for it to pass. It is silent, but few interjections like this break the testosterone-fueled parody which is the main character in the game

Without doubt, it would have been nice if the experience was a bit longer – it is the last game of a trilogy, after all – though it still weighs in eight to eleven long depending on your level of skill. There are tons of extras to unlock in the menu once the game ended, and modes of fighting arena.

It’s really a minor masterpiece and one that should be on every PlayStation 3 owner list.
