GoWIII is pretty much everything you'd expect from this series and nothing more. It's tough to fault the game for being a "standard God of War game" when you consider how high that standard really is. However, the improvements in design between GoWII and GoWIII aren't nearly as significant as the technical advancements. Perhaps that will change in the next game, though, as the series leaves Kratos behind. He hasn't changed with the times and Sony needs to find a new muse.
