B.T. Robertson writes: God of War 3 is an incredible game. Sony sunk $44 million into the development of the title and it paid off. Kratos never looked so good; the gods and titans never looked so good; the gameplay has a coating of polish that improves the original finish and foundation underneath; the story, while a bit lacking, comes to a satisfying close with an incredible boss fight; and the journey has never been so bloody violent and bone-crunching.
The score I give it is not an average, and even with the few minor complaints, it's well-earned, and not perfect. A game is a sum of its parts, not an average of each. Plus, I'm partial to these games and love the action/adventure genre.
