God of War III: The Next 'Game Made Movie'

The God of War series has been special for a lot of people. Some players have followed Cratos(the main character) since day 1 almost 4 years ago. I think this series as also been very loved by the people at Sony as well since they put a lot of time and effort into making this game. I think one aspect of that time spent it the actual story. Most games don't worry too much about the story which is what sets this game apart.

Pros
-The game has a great story. 100$ says they make a moive.
-It's fun to slash up giant monsters.
-The mosters are pretty cool looking.
-I like the button ending sequences, i think it adds more character.
-The controls are decent if you've had experience with this type of thing before.
-Weapons are upgradable, but not by a lot.
-Lots of fun and different move types, including kicking exploding dogs into enemies.
-Overall graphics are pretty well put together.
-Short load times.
-You get to fly a tiny bit, which was well put together.
-Set camera angle instead of free view is big plus.

Cons
-The game's way too easy. It shows you the way much too often, and there's not really any puzzle to solve.
-The bosses are easy. They have very simple move patterens. As are the regular enemies.
-The game is short. 7-10 hours.
-The button settup is confusing and it's hard to get to different weapons without accidentally switching to the wrong one.
-Some of the weapons serve no purpose. What good are those shoes in battle?
-It's way too easy to upgrade all your weapons.
-The endings is a little bit odd.
-The game centers around some stuff but not enough back story is provided for those who haven't played GOW before.

Overall, the game is way entertaining, even if it's a little bit easy. There wasn't really a learning curve. I'd say 9 for the lack of upgrades and difficulty.
