God of War 3 scores 19 out of 20 in Consoles +

French magazine Consoles + has reviewed God of War III and given a 19/20 score. From the review : "Rarely in Consoles + we had been closer to assign a perfect score in an action game, the last reference - not least - that is approaching our eyes was Resident Evil 4" (God of War 3, PS3)

Expected no less for this game. March is going to huge.
Syronicus  +   2107d ago
Oh so true.
The release lineup for March is crazy. I can't remember a year when so many good titles were being released at this time during the year. Last year was good but this March just kicks some tail.
Commander TK  +   2107d ago
19/20 = 0,95 = 9,5/10

Means that the game is incredible
Hanif-876  +   2107d ago
God Of War 3 is perfect :-)
I'm 100% sure this game will not score less than 9.8 in most reviews, unless its reviewed by some bias fuccks thats underneath Microsoft's wallet!
nix  +   2107d ago
can't wait to play this game. i'm so over-hyped for this game. and i'm sure the game won't let me down.
sikbeta  +   2106d ago
Yep, This Games is Pure Epicness, GOW3 is BEAST

Gamers FTW!!!
zeeshan  +   2106d ago
@DeadlySpartan: When you got Edge, GT, 1up, Eurogamer, I doubt GOW3 will post 9.8 metacritic score.
Hellsvacancy  +   2106d ago
Res 4 was pooh, it was the WORTST game ive EVER played (followed closely by Prototype) and they almost gave it a perfect score?

How could u mention God Of War 3 and Res4 in the same sentence
AKNAA  +   2106d ago
Your crazy man! RE4 was awesome as F$@K! that and RE2 are the best in the series... Although, comparing that to the GOW series seems a little odd considering I don't see any similarities aside from them both being action.

But, yeah, from what I've seen and heard so far. GOW3 will most likely be GOTY if it's even a little bit better than gow1-2.
Hellsvacancy  +   2106d ago
My bad, thought they where talkin bout Resident Evil 5, never played Res-4
Djinn  +   2106d ago
RE4 was trash. Thank god I rented.
raztad  +   2106d ago

Just out of curiosity, if RES4, one of the most acclaimed games ever, is trash for you. What games do you like? I'm really curious.

gow 3 is going to get uncharted 2 status and metacritic if not better .........
and it deserves it.......i dont know if its gunna get game of the year cuz thats pretty far away and theres still more awesome games to come and be id have to be a fanboy to say gow 3 game of the year 2010..ill say the game of the year for 2010 when all the chips are down.......cant wait to play this game....and remember this game has no online so these review scores are even better.....
Bubble Buddy  +   2106d ago
Mark my words, the scores will be around this margin,

Gamespot - 8.5 or 9
GT - 8.9
EDGE - 7 or 8
Eurogamer - 7 or 8
1UP - A-

Lots of journalism are trash these days.

i know what your gettin at bubble but that wont be the case with gow 3
the game is epic, just like uncharted 2 was epic. not even a pro 360 reviewer can morally sabotage games that good....and besides review scores arent the cats meow, it really comes down to, what do you enjoy as a gamer everyones different, 1 person cant speak for millions of people even if they get paid to do it....and sales dont make a game either..the main thing is dont get caught up in the sales and review score im a graphics whore and a gore whore so this game is perfect for me.....thats all that i care about.....
gunnerforlife  +   2106d ago
@Bubble Buddy

in the past year Gamespot has really cleaned its self up u know
and 1up seems to b doing better.. But now im starting to think all the fanboys that were on those 2 sites have moved to IGN >_<
HeadShot  +   2106d ago
You've never played res4?! Go play that it now! I still pop that baby in every once in a while. I'll never sell my copy.

on topic: I seriously can't wait for GOW3. I'm going to have to sell some crack because I'm out of money right now XD

Young Capwn  +   2107d ago
Shoulda just gave it 20, what held the one point back?
Minimox16  +   2106d ago
maybe because dont had multiplayer :/

remember multiplayer its required this gen /s
Dev8 ing  +   2106d ago
Only required if the game is PS3 exclusive.
Marquis_de_Sade  +   2106d ago
I agree, why not just give an extra point to every game they review, in fact, why not just give every game a 20?
Sangria  +   2106d ago
It's a matter of mentality. Most of French reviewers tend to consider no game is perfect, thus 19/20 is the maximum score unless the game is exceptional. It's not the case for every French sites but it's mostly like that.
Young Capwn  +   2106d ago
This is why i asked "What held the point back?" tard.
polow got sol  +   2107d ago
Ive played the demo and i can vouch for this review gow 3 could possibly be the greatest game of all time
Syronicus  +   2107d ago
That demo was a year old too.
So you can imagine what the final build will be like!

"A lone warrior standing on a field of battle, surveying the carnage before him."

I help but remember this quote from God of War 2 and the quote from Jaffe that "GoW3 will ultimately explain why there are no more Greek myths."
Young Capwn  +   2107d ago
Because Kratos killz everyone!
belal  +   2107d ago
one question
will kratos fight hercules?
ela06sd  +   2107d ago
Apparently hercules will be leading the armies of the gods or summin is what i read somewhere.
Samewire  +   2107d ago
Actually, Kratos will fight Chuck Norris.. and of course he will kick his ass :D

can't wait to play the game!
DaTruth  +   2107d ago
Come on... Chuck Norris? Kratos is pretty strong... but Chuck Norris? There are some things even Kratos can't do!
tjd211  +   2106d ago
chuck norris will lose against kratos period
John Marston  +   2106d ago
Chuck Norris will most probably end up raped
cayal  +   2106d ago
Kratos should fight Epic Beard Guy in a bus for the title of Epic Beard.

Great score. I seriously dont expect gow3 to get any lower than a 9/10. Any lower and i'd say they hate gaming.
Dev8 ing  +   2106d ago
Or just looking for clicks.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   2107d ago
You can pretty much expect almost perfect scores from 95% of the game sites and magazines.

This game is going to be huge.

fable 3??..come on!fable 2 was a running joke and alan wake is a poor mans silent hill. No survival horror game will ever beat silent hill 2...delusional fanboy. god of war will be game of the year unless the last guardian comes out this year. If it does goodbye halo reach
younglj01  +   2107d ago
lol 19/20 wth kind of scoring is next u will see 99/100 or even 199/200.
People I understand why so many xbox owners/fanboys is here.Because they going to have to wait atleast 2 years until an awesome game come to their console.Dont mention MW2 bc its multi.

But as a gamer Halo:Reach is looking very nice I might buy it and play it at my lil cousin house or trade him my PS3 until im finish.Lol hopefully he will give it back if i decide to buy halo:reach
kingdavid  +   2107d ago
some would say 9.5 and having increments of .1 is a ridiculous scoring system..
mastiffchild  +   2107d ago
Isn't that what he was saying?

Anyway some would, very rightly imo, say that review scores are all BS.

Since there's no unifrom marking scheme how can they possibly be anything else? Just read the words and sack the number they're forced to tag on at the end.
kingdavid  +   2107d ago
no he was not. He wasnt arguing for what the norm is in the current industry.

I would generally keep it as simple as possible. Eurogamer seem to have the best system, Simple whole numbers.

Actually in France grades are based out of 20 that's why most sites/magazine use this scale for reviews.

Still won't beat Mass Effect 2 in sales or review scores.... LMAO @ u droids overhyping this generic hacking and slash.
redsquad  +   2107d ago
Oh god, another droning 360 zombie who seems to care about the PS3 far more than he pretends.
Uness of course you're referring to the superior PC version of Mass Effect 2??
Dev8 ing  +   2106d ago
When you have no good games to play you tend to troll. The question is will they be going on about ME2 all year long? Anyone who bought the game has probably beat it by now at least 2-3 times. It is dry for 360 owners what do they have to play Bioshock 2 or AVP, both were let downs. The next good game for them comes out in April, unless you consider the crappy port of FFXIII.
awesomesauce21  +   2107d ago
Mass Effect 2 is Goty already. Face facts
nirvana_sky  +   2107d ago
mass effect score 18/20 at Console +
:)i'm not defending but this is just the fact that mass effect scored 18/20 at Console+ but GOW3 scored 19/20 at Console+ :)

Its a good RPG, but nowhere near the epicness that will be GOW.

lh_swe  +   2107d ago
Ohh didn't know you played the game.
Because otherwise how could you know how the game is going to score...ahh I know why!Because you are a fanboy retart, which means your brain would overload if a PS3 game scored over a 360 game.
divideby0  +   2107d ago
had no doubt...the thing is the score still blows other games with the same score out of the water

Looking forward to the PSN demo this week :)
TheHardware  +   2106d ago
I predict edge magazine will give it 7.5 - 8

and say its same as previous versions with pretty graphics, and no depth....they will then re-write the same replacing "GOW" with "GT5".

they already gave Heavy Rain a 7.0....
someone remember I said this
OtherWhiteMeat  +   2106d ago
I was thinking the same thing. Some game site(Edge)will give GOW 3 a much lower score trying to bring a lot hits to their site.Someone will always try to rain on Sony's parade.

Barney Stinson  +   2106d ago
I don't get how you say GT and Edge are biased Xbox fan boy sites. Isn't everyone entitled to their own opinion? Not everyone will like God of War...
raztad  +   2106d ago
Dunno about GT but EDGE is biased as f*ck. Dont trust a single word coming from them.
OtherWhiteMeat  +   2106d ago
Read this...
Djinn  +   2106d ago
GT are idiots. Whenever they review a game, its always "this game is the same" "its not innovative". Then MW2 or some 360 exclusive gets a 9.5+
tavo1117  +   2106d ago
yes, i totally hate GT. You can see they don't like the PS3 at all. I don't trust any review coming from them.
