"whilst God of War Ascension could well be a good game, there’s a few things in God of War III that annoy me beyond belief. So, in an attempt to improve Ascension let’s take a look at just what is wrong with God of War III. Let’s start with…"
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.
it's a prequel ( confirmed by teh game director on twitter )
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
N4G needs more opinion pieces, just to much news lately....
"Dante’s Inferno, a far superior game in my opinion" i stopped reading there. Also just to add the people that whine about Kratos being too angry in GOW3,he`s supposed to be like that in GOW3 he has been completely consumed by his rage and hate and blindly kills everything and everyone. You could say at the end of the game though... SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS he redeems himself by taking his own life.
I agree. Dante's Inferno was NOT a superior game by any lengths to God of War. Also I agree with the nixing of all complaints about Kratos's anger issues. I mean did anyone EVER read Greek mythology at all? They were all angry especially the demi gods and titans. You know why? Because their God and Titan parents treated them like $hit. All these things Kratos went through was the same things many of them had to endure. Ever read Hercules? Hera tormented him just because she didn't like him. He didn't do anything wrong he didn't choose to be a half God and he was punished and tormented for half his life.Kratos was tormented,tortured, killed, sent to hell and back, made to kill his family, betrayed and scarred beyond recognition mentally and physically. I don't know what people expect him to be. Calm and composed? Thoughtful and forgiving? Loving and kind? Yeah I can see people being a nice, kind person with chain blades seared into their arms, tormented by Gods and your family's ashes stuck to your body.
God of War 3 is easily the best game i ever played.
Oh my god did anyone else actually read that crap? He's so petty he actually resorts to making fun of Kratos's penis. Heres the best advise I can possible give you. If you dont like the game, dont FKN play it.
Dante's inferno is the superior game? stopped reading right there
He played the game at Normal or at Easy mode. This why I prefer playing GOW at Titan Mode from the start as it really make the action more tactical.
Even on normal it isn't your typical button mash slash em up.dante inferno was so repetitive and boring.good story though
I liked the story in Dante's Inferno, but comparing it to GOW is like comparing jello to creme brulee.
