What's Happening

Good, but not Great

I went into the third game expecting a change from the slightly boring common fighting style that this game has had since the beginning.  I was disappointed, but fortunately for me there were the amazing cinematics and epic boss battles.  I have come to realize that God of War is just mindless fighting, where button mashing is just as successful as the brainless fighting that you do when you are actually trying.  The puzzles are also unstimulating and pointless.  God of War III even has a section where you are fighting mindlessly while inside a pointless puzzle. 

     I may seem like a kill-joy, or even a *** to some standards, but I just do not agree with a ten out of ten rating.  For all these downsides, I think that the cinematics were more than enough to keep me awake throughout the game.  The boss battles were eye candy and pretty much carried the whole game.  This game is outstanding and I recommend playing it, but don't expect much from the common battle.

  • I know what you mean and I somewhat agree.  I liked the God of War series, but I didn't think it was completely mindless.  The cinematics were fantastic also.

  • I actually was kinda skeptical to this game when I got it because I thought that I would be bored after 3 games of nearly identical gameplay like I was with the later Ratchet games. I enjoyed the game much more than I thought, the fighting in this game is just near perfect(diagonal dodging ffs!). My question to you is what difficulty did you play this game on?

  • I fully agree with the 10 rating. So do all of my friends.

  • Yeah same here but look how good this game looks! You are looking at the same stuff but it's good. 10 out of 10 for me.

  • I'm gonna smack the crap out of you bro.

  • The game is a legend. The first is the best for me ,so innovative.Plan to play all three in hard mode now.
