Bill Jones was one of two people named Ultimate God of War Fan by Sony Computer Entertainment's PlayStation Underground in 2007. Since then, he has gone on to found his own gaming site, Pads & Panels. Jones got a chance to play God of War III a week before its release, and puts it under the critical eye in his latest review, giving it 5 out of 5 Stars.
Jones writes: "God of War and its first sequel set, and subsequently raised, the bar for action gaming, laying out the framework that every action game since has turned to for inspiration, or at the extreme end of title's like Dante's Inferno, copied down to the button-mapping. Such hype would leave many sequels destined for disappointment, but God of War III raises the bar once again. There's a new king of the action genre."
