One of the best games ever created. I love the huge pics in this review, just awesome.

The Wood2897d ago

of him looking up at hercules is a great one. I was laughing when i was watching that scene play out

ArthurLee2897d ago

Hurc was an awesome battle. I didn't expect to see him in the game. Then again every battle in this game is incredible.

raztad2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

Best description of GoW3 I've ever read. 1000% agree with it:

"As always, the term “hack & slash” need not apply in God of War III. Learning the attacks of every enemy, as well as their strengths and weaknesses is the only way to succeed. And I wouldn’t have it any other way; where’s the fun in hitting the attack button four times in a row?"

GoW is a "tactical" h'n S. Precise timing and extensive use of blocking and rolling it's what makes GoW combat so good. I love it. People that say Gow is button masher GTFO!! you havent played the game or played it on EASY.

Very nice review LoT, very nice review.

BTW, I was playing GoW1 yesterday and its funny how GoW3 in-game looks better than GoW1 CGI cutscenes.

nycredude2897d ago

WTF is taking Lens of Truth and Digital Foundry so long to do an in depth tech analysis of GOW3!? They are quick to do it to compare multiplats! I am curious to watch it.

raztad2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )


Man there is not competition. Read LoT review, GoW3 the new graphic king.

DF made an analysis about the making of GoW3 and its tech:

It was posted in N4G but as usually happens when something positive is said, it got no heat at all, I dont think it even reached the main page.

@cgoodno bellow

That's funny man.

Christopher2897d ago

I think the reviewer liked the game. I'm not 100% sure, but it's a sure possibility that he liked it.

MexicanAppleThief2897d ago

Boss battles were some of the best I've played in gaming. It's honestly just that good.

sikbeta2897d ago

EPIC Game, God of War 3 is a Real Wonderful and Beast Game

Solidus187-SCMilk2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

mike I agree about the u2 multi. I used to live it and play every day but I hate update 1.05 and 1.06.

HammockGames2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

...the odds are good you'll love GoW3.

Simply an incredible game full of unforgettable moments - start to finish.

There are a ton of great games out right now, but even if there weren't, this title alone is worth the price of a PS3.

For anybody on the fence, Kratos says get the the hell off. Now.

Kratos Spartan2897d ago

man it looks too pretty on my big 'ol Bravia. Give it a Cinema Picture with MotionFlow maxed out, like watching a movie. The game is a Monster.

HolyOrangeCows2897d ago

Can you say: "Late to the party"?

blasian2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

Late to the party

Narutone662897d ago

they liked the game so much that they almost forgot to write a review. Hence, the reason it's late to the party.

ChozenWoan2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

Why did they give it a 0.5 deduction?

Syronicus2896d ago

Then look into the eye of Kratos as he lunges his thumbs into your sockets and bashes your head into the rocks.

GOWIII is truly epic.

epic fun game only on playstation :)

lightningsax2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

Definitely a fun game! I actually had the most fun during a boss battle that no one seems to mention in their reviews... in the middle-beginning of the game...

Dellis2897d ago

It begins with bang

in between it has epic moments

it ends with a bleh feel

Shogun Master2897d ago

I don't agree at all. From start to finish I can't think of a more exciting game then GoW3. Can you?

stealyrface2897d ago

Chronos battle - nuff said.

BeaArthur2897d ago

Dellis...I actually agree with you, the first 45 minutes are unbelievable and a certain "big" fight in the middle is awesome but there are a lot of moments where I just felt like I've been there and done that before. The combat is more refined and strategic and obviously the game is more polished but I like 1 & 2 better.

Shogun Master...I would actually say Uncharted 2 was more exciting from start to finish.

divideby02897d ago

I cant think of any other game I have ever played that is gonna give you and adrenaline rush for the entire duration of the game..

mike90772897d ago

Gow 3 is way more fun than uncharted altho i did love uncharted 2's multiplayer until 1.05 and 1.06 came along now the game sux

blasian2897d ago

Thats what ps3 games do, they evolve into even greater games as time goes on. Though i really cannot pick between UC2 and gow3.. maybe just because UC2 has a multiplayer than itd win barely lol but both are two of the greatest games no doubt

Its a little early for GOTY, but even I can't see any game having a bigger "wow" factor then GoW3. Even HALO Reach will look like a joke compared to this.

jaidek2897d ago

I am going to have to agree on this one. As of right now...GOTY!

stealyrface2897d ago

Great score for this game, if it were only a little longer it would be considered one of the best games ever (even so it may be). Still its the front runner for GOTY.
