Ever since the franchise arrived on the PS2 all the way back in 2005, the God of War series has become legendary as one of the most beloved action games of all time. While it was not a pioneer, it practically perfected 3-D combat, as well as delivering an intriguing alternate take on Greek mythology, and an uncanny ability to show off epic set pieces that left many gamers lifting their jaws from all the way down in Hades.
Now, five years after the original game's release, Kratos' story of bloodshed and vengeance is finally coming to an end in the capper of the trilogy, God of War III. Most people interested in the game at all know the premise already: Kratos and a slew of Titans, led by Gaia, are climbing up Mount Olympus, intent on slaughtering Zeus and his Olympians. Of course, the Gods aren't going down without a fight, and Zeus' most trusted lieutenants, including Poseidon, Hades, Hermes and Helios have been ordered to put an end to the Titans and their favorite Spartan.
