Phenomenal. Game play is fantastic. Tons of variety. If you like the other GOW games, this is a must. Graphics are great. Lots of new weapons with excellent upgrade system. Variety of puzzles. Takes about 10 hours to beat if you collect everything and don't rush. Some replay value. Challenging on titan difficulty. Only negatives I can come up with are the voice overs are not good. The voice actors apparently forgot to be enthusiastic about it. Also there is not a ton of reply. Once you beat the game a few times, its lost its grandeur.
I will admit that I'm a little biased when it comes to God of War; I love these games! My complaint is that this one is too short and the puzzles aren't as challanging. The gameplay hasn't changed much, some new fighting elements were added, but it's still mostly button mashing (which I don't mind). It continues the story pretty well, although it was kind of left unresolved at the end. Even though this one was shorter it was still great.
Man i dont really have to say anything about this game cause those of you who played the last 3 (psp including) already know this game is bigger and of course better this is a must buy or rent but definite must buy for any god of war fan the gameplay is awsome, i dont know how but its the same formula but they some how appear to make it better if it aint broke dont fix it. the scenes are very epic expect gow 2 but way way better and explains every lose end but the ending might be dissappointing because its the final god of war with kratos but what a ride it is hands down whenever you get chance get this game, probably best game of the year ps3 exclusives are getting bigger and bigger.
