Summary

A Fantastic Trilogy Closer!

The Good

God of War III picks up right where God of War II left off and it closes the story in a way that's absolutely fitting and grand in its scale and sense of fun. It makes all the frustrating blood, sweat and tears you pour into the game feel worth it when you finally get to complete your quest for sweet revenge against the Gods of Olympus.

The Bad

The stuff I didn't like about the game really included the omission of being able to stab henchmen on the ground via pressing circle several times, as was the case in the last two games. I love seeing characters stabbing people where you see their hands firmly gripping the hilt of a sword. There's something about that imagery that's just satisfying to me when it's done well.

The Bottom Line

It's the conclusion to the Olympian Saga in God of War. It's everything you love about the previous games brought to a bombastic conclusion of Godly scale.
