Kratos's ultra violent tale of rage and retribution is a must have epic for the PS3 and so it's pretty exciting to see that Game are currently offering it for just £24.98, both online and instore.
Even with their current £5 voucher code, the price for God of War 3 from Tesco Entertainment comes to £31.38. As this is the next best price, you stand to make a saving of at least £6 by buying from game, even the cheapest pre-owned version I have seen has been at least £5 more expensive.
As one would expect from a God of War title, the graphics are spectacular and the game is filled with spectacle, over the top awe inspiring moments to feast your senses upon and absurdly epic boss battles. The carnage factor is turned up to eleven with some moments that even the most hardened gore fans may find hard to watch; the squeamish are advised to steer well clear.
The combat remains as satisfying as ever and, while it hasn't evolved much, it does feel a little more fluid, especially when pulling off a heavy attack. It's a shame that some of the diversity of the earlier titles has been lost, with less emphasis on puzzle elements for example, but this does keep the pace zipping along, making the game a thrill ride from start to finish.
Pretenders to Kratos's epic action crown have flocked onto consoles and while some have been undeniably great games, nothing has been able to beat being back in ancient Greece, riding a massive titan towards an orgy of destruction.
