Let me just start out by saying this is the best PS3 exclusive other than the uncharted series to ever grace the PS3 system. This game was one of the most beautiful games of 2010 and still beats most games in 2012-2013. The story is easily the best one in the series and the opening boss fight is amazing and is just a preview of what is to come later in the game. I had absolutely no problem with this game from the combat to technical issues there were none in this game. The gameplay is amazing and the combat is extremely entertaining from spilling a centaurs guts to cutting a gorgons head off. The final boss battle in this game is epic. The story is long which is a good thing. The weapon variety is great. The weapons is the blades of Athena, hooks of Hades, Hercules cestus, and the nemesis whips. Overall this game is a must have for PS3 owners and god of war fans. Hands down the best in the series and a complete fit for the game.

Played through the whole series for the first time over the last couple of weeks and this game is a dynamic conclusion to the series. Graphically there is no comparision to GOW 1 or 2 as this was created for PS3 to start with. The mini-game cut scenes were spectacular and improved upon greatly from the first two mainly by moving the button you have to press to the sides of the screen allowing you to simply use your peripheral vision to know what to press. Also, my chief complaint about the first two games was the lack of direction provided for puzzles, and GOW 3 added slight hints here and there to get you moving in the correct direction. The one downside was that this was several hours shorter than the first two (I completed it in 9 hours on the first time through). I will say, without providing any spoilers, that it is great to see an end to a trilogy that actually provides a definitive conclusion. There is no doubt at the end of this game that the storyline is complete. Overall a great gaming experience!
