The best way I can describe it is to say that God of War 3 is a treat. Flailing your fantastic weapons around is a treat. The way the camera sweeps out to show you the scale of what you're actually doing is a treat. The characters, locations and one-liners are a treat. Aside from a few minor niggles (double jumps not registering, easy puzzles) this is a truly excellent game. One of those where, like Heavy Rain, I don't want to give too much about the story away, but safe to say it ties up all the loose ends and even hints at the end not really being the end.
