God of War 3 brings Kratos’ tale of revenge to a satisfying conclusion as he ascends Mt. Olympus and plunges into Hell, whilst seeking out those who have betrayed him.

The opening cut scene pulls you into this brutal and at times incredibly challenging take on Greek mythology, which is hard to put down and is unbelievably enjoyable to play. The environments are a beauty to behold both technically and artistically. Kratos himself is equally impressive, as he has been given superbly realistic movements. The scaling of the different characters and beasts is unlike anything that has been seen in a game before; Kratos is a mere blip on the screen compared to the enormous Titans, which tower over him.
The bone crunching combat is thrilling and culminates in gruesome death sequences, for example Kratos will pluck the eye out of a Cyclops’ head, or rip the wings from a harpy. Kratos’ secondary weapons are finally a viable alternative to the Blades of Exile, which brings a welcome amount of variety to your enemies’ destruction. The violence is broken up by some wonderfully challenging puzzles that require careful thought to solve, which allows you to recharge your batteries and increases the impact that the action has.
Everything about God of War 3 is epic and for this price its hard to justify not buying it, as you’ll be getting hours upon hours of fantastic gameplay and a story that Homer himself would be proud of.
