God of War III

The third installment in a best-selling slasher series, God of War, and the first one designed for the PlayStation 3 console. The game’s story picks up after the previous two installments, focusing on the war between titans and Olympian gods, fanned by the vengeful Kratos. The gameplay premise does not stray far from the standards of the series, focusing on spectacular battles with numerous opponents and mighty bosses. At the same time, God of War III offers several new weapons, each requiring a different combat style. The protagonist was given a brand new magic system and new, useful artifacts, such as Icarus Wings, Golden Fleece, or the Head of Helios. Thanks to the increased capabilities of PlayStation 3, the third installment in the series sports much better graphics and better AI of enemies.

God of War III is another installment in the excellent series of action games. At the same time, it is the first one to be released on PlayStation 3 console.

Story

The story of God of War III for PlayStation 3, written by Marianne Krawczyk, is one of the game’s strongest points. It starts exactly where the second part left off, telling about the war between titans and gods, stirred up by Kratos. Through his actions the hero seeks an answer to a universal question: Does the man need any gods?

Gameplay

In God of War III Kratos gets new weapons, each requiring a different combat style. For instance, the Claws of Hades are two spiky stones connected with a chain, making up an excellent ranged weapon, which can also knock down nearby enemies. Besides, the hero uses a new system of magic and unique artifacts (e.g. Icarus Wings, Golden Fleece, or the Head of Helios – which Kratos uses to light a path before him). In God of War III enemies are even smarter and more varied than before.

Another essential feature of the God of War series, the boss fights, is now even better than in the previous games. The number of bosses seems to have reached an optimum – fewer than in the second game, but more than in the first one. An interesting addition is the ability to ride some of the monsters you hurt (e.g. huge cyclopes).

Technology

Since the third part of the series was tailor-made for the new console platform (all previous installments were released on PlayStation 2), the developers could significantly enhance the graphics. The main hero’s model is now built of 20,000 polygons (compared to 5,000 in the second part). Moreover, up to 50 opponents may appear on-screen at one time (previously it was only a dozen or so).
