The boss battles in this game are insane, they're huge! The graphics are also extremely good probably some of the best on the system. I had fun playing through the game even though it's a hack-n-slash there's still a lot of strategy involved especially on the increased difficulty. Once you learn the weak points on the enemies and bosses it can be a bit easier. I think the game would last the average person around 15-20 hours. If you're a fan of other games in the series or action adventure games in general I really think you should check this out.

A must play for any gamer

by Ken on 5/26/2011

God of War feels like a much more bloody Castlevania: Lament of Innocence. The combat system is simple with easy button smashing combos. Graphics are beautiful, and playing as an angry bald guy is even more fun. There is not much strategy involved, and sometimes you may have to think outside the box to defeat a boss here or there, but this is a must play game even if you played GoW III. Read More

Product Overview

God of War III is the final installment of the multi-million unit-selling trilogy. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment's Santa Monica Studios, God of War III will bring epic battles to life with stunning graphics and an elaborate plot that puts Kratos at the center of carnage and destruction as he seeks revenge against the Gods who have betrayed him. Set in the realm of brutal Greek mythology, God of War III is a single-player game that allows players to take on the climatic role of the ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he scales through the intimidating heights of Mt. Olympus and the dark depths of Hell to seek revenge on those who have betrayed him. Armed with double-chained blades, and an array of new weapons and magic for this iteration of the trilogy, Kratos must take on mythology's darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus.

Review Words like "visceral" and "brutal" are used to describe many violent games these days, but they wield the fullness of their meaning in God of War III. No other terms so completely convey the gut-wrenching sensation of eviscerating a mythical beast, decapitating a deity, or carving up a titan. While moments like these have defined Kratos over the years, God of War III isn't amazing just because it's violent; it's amazing because it conveys these experiences in ways you have never seen before...Kratos' stylishly elaborate combos and vicious context-sensitive kills have been adapted and emulated many times, making the video game landscape a bloodier and more epic place. In the years since God of War II, while others were chasing the shadow of Kratos' fighting style, the team at Sony Santa Monica was elevating the scale and intensity to a level that once again proves Kratos is the undisputed king of the genre...God of War III takes the biggest strides forward in its cinematic presentation, but the nuts and bolts of the combat are also more refined. If you've played the previous games in the series, you'll find everything you love about Kratos' blade-slinging style intact, but even better than before thanks to the seamless integration of items. This new equipment (usually ripped from the dead fingers of a fallen adversary) allows you to dash, stun enemies, and perform ranged attacks -- and they all draw from a rapidly recharging power source. This gives you the freedom to use these versatile tools instead of conserving them, opening new combo possibilities. Used in conjunction with the sweet new weapons (I love the Cestus!) and maneuvers (I love the ranged grab!), these additions make Kratos feel like an even more fluid and capable combatant...The fury, destruction, and murdered gods -- it's all been leading up to this. When I first took up Kratos' blades back in 2005, I thought I was embarking on a simple quest for vengeance. After leaving a trail of bodies spanning four games and three systems, that quest has finally reached its end. Not even in my wildest dreams could I have imagined such a powerful, cinematic, and breathtaking conclusion to the saga of the Ghost of Sparta.

Features
Groundbreaking Depth of Scale: Kratos will explore areas up to 4 times larger than those found in God of War II, as well as carve through entire armies while navigating on the back of Titans - living, moving, breathing levels as tall as the Empire State Building.
Lighting Technologies: The dynamic lighting solution employed in GOW III is only feasible through the computing power provided by the Cell SPUs. For example, using the High Dynamic Range Lighting (HDRL) technology, the camera ? when using Krato's sightline - will emulate the human retina, causing players to feel a sharp brightness when Kratos exits a dark area and enters a sunlit area, similar to how the human eye would need to adjust.
New Weapons and Combat System: New deadly weapons such as the Cestus -- powerful metal gauntlets with devastating strength -- and other brutal instruments of war that will allow Kratos to learn ruthless new techniques such as grappling with enemies and launching explosive wall-to-ground attacks.
Only on the PS3 System: The award-winning development team leverages the processing power and technology of PlayStation 3 system to make God of War III one of the most-graphically advanced next gen titles available, with even the dramatic cut screens running off the in-game engine.
Rideable Creatures: Several of the menacing creatures of Greek mythology in God of War III can now be manipulated against their will, as Kratos uses them to cross chasms, inflict blind rage against enemies, reveal puzzles and secrets, and as tools of complete annihilation.
Signature Gameplay: Brutal combat, intricate puzzles, exploration of awe-inspiring worlds, and a compelling and satisfying ending to Kratos' epic story.
Sophisticated Storyline: The God of War III storyline is the epic conclusion to the trilogy; the storyline will be told in a way that is true to traditionalist roots in Greek mythology, from moral consequences to brutal battles against the Gods.
Stylized Realism: Players will battle in detailed and unique 3D worlds lit by thousands of dynamic lights and textures with quadruple the resolution, which allows for realistic muscle striations, detailed facial expressions, and new heightened levels of brutality and gore.
