GOD OF WAR III

Sony
PS3

The most muscle-popping slaphead in the history of gaming, Kratos, is back baby – and he’s goddamned pissed off!

If you ever had the pleasure of encountering either of the first two God of War games on the comparatively puny PS2, you’ll have an idea what to expect. Just ramp those expectations up to 11, for we’re talking supercalafragiEPIC here – stick Chuck Heston in The Matrix and stab the ‘multiply’ button repeatedly and you still wouldn’t be able to generate enough epic to simulate the epicnessousity of this puppy.

The first thing you need when crafting an epic is revenge. How about getting back at Greek Gods who betrayed you? Yeah, not bad – not bad at all. Cue all manner of hell-spawned creatures that you have to battle against – and not just pissy ones, but huge, bigger than the bloody screen ones at times. You battle right side up, wrong side up, even at Batman angles (sans the ‘THWOK!’, ‘POW!’ and ‘BOP’ bubbles, sadly), but you battle lots. Then have a break for a spot of often devious puzzling.

With a playground for the K man that’s four times bigger than his earlier appearances, and enough full-on weaponry to have even the most hard-arsed sadists drooling like kids in an ice cream shop, God of War III is a fittingly huge send off not only for Kratos, the man who defines the word ‘epic’ on consoles, but for fans of the series who want to get seriously vengeful on those pesky Gods’ arses one last time.

take me back to the start...
