The final part of the original trilogy about Kratos, who is on the mission to revenge his loved ones and who killed the god of war and took his place. The game is exclusive for PlayStation 3 and 4.
God of War III is a typical action-adventure slasher. The game is the seventh in the series, it is a direct continuation of God of War II story. The main elements of the game are borrowed from ancient Greek mythology. The player controls Kratos - who lost his place on Olympus this time. Together with the goddess of the land of Gaia, he climbs Mount Olympus to defeat Zeus but fails and thrown into the waters of the River Styx. The plot narrates about the ascent of the main character back to the tops.
From the gameplay point of view the game is not much different from the previous parts. This is also an action packed third-person slasher with RPG elements and handcrafted cinematics. In the hands of Kratos, two blades, whose possibilities can be improved for in-game currency, other weapons will be available as the passage progresses. All levels of the game end with boss battles with heavy use of Quick-Time-Events.
Aww yes, God of War III. I bought a PS3 just for this one (and to play the other exclusive sony-titles of cause). My buddy lend that game to me. I was a huge hack-and-slay-fan, Dantes Inferno on Xbox360 was my favorite at this time. And yeah, perfect time, perfect game. Brutal, gory, funny, and challenging!
