I loved God of War III... Until I decided I wanted to get the platinum trophy... Went through the game three times in one day, and without having the option to skip cutscenes and things, it infuriated me to the point of not even being excited for a new God of War. Though I know that's not the developers faults haha.

I got the platinum. It was not that difficult. You are complaining about cuts scenes when you could have been smart and used the save points as place markers.
Did you ever stop to wonder why they put them in if there was autosave already there in the first place?

Thanks for implying I'm an idiot, I appreciate that.

I just said this was my opinion, and I kind of forced myself to dislike the game. Yes though, I will complain about cutscenes. Is it really so hard to have the option to skip them? Especially when you've already beaten the game?

If you have trophies in a game that might require you to go back through it a second or third time, it makes the trip back through much less annoying.

Not really blaming developers, but it would have been nice to have been in there.

I'm not saying you're an idiot but if you want the trophy you'll have to wade through the cutscenes.
I agree with you though, they should be skippable once you beat the game and when I replayed for the third time (not long after I beat it twice before) it did annoy me but they are unreal to look at and I really liked the game overall so it was bearable.
Just take a brake from it and tackle it a few weeks/months down the line.

God of war 3 for me - big presentation ,lack of innovation.. it was like two before, same mechanics, same everything, but great graphics and epic bosses.. still I'm waiting for IV because it will be a new story

GoW4 won't be a different story. It will pick up after GoW3's cliffhanger.

Redempteur2790d ago

it's a prequel ( confirmed by teh game director on twitter )

SoapShoes2790d ago

It actually did introduce new gameplay mechanics and it wasn't revolutionary but evolutionary and better gameplay wise than the first two.

Nothing. Except it finished.

god of war 3 was the best in the series for me strictly gameplay wise. trying to beat it on hardest difficulty was very gratifying, slightly annoying (im looking at you cerberus boss) but ultimately a great fun game with exceptional graphics that drew me in the mythology. its a shame i cant say the same about the story which was by far the weakest in the series.

so here is hoping they bring the awesome gameplay,graphics and wicked set pieces from GOW3 plus an enthraling story thats mature, interesting and not predictable

the game was sooo epic
i finished it about 20 times
and i will start another one soon after i finish my 3rd playthrough of uncharted 3
