  • 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 cutscenes running off the in-game engine.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 triology; 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.
  • 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.
  • New Weapons and Combat Systems - 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.
  • 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 Kratos' 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.
  • ESRB Rating: MATURE with Blood and Gore, Strong Language, Nudity, Strong Sexual Content, and Intense Violence

The first two God of War titles redefined the "hack n' slash" action genre of games by combining fluid gameplay, larger than life confrontations and beautiful cinematic landscapes. God of War III not only continues this tradition, it absolutely destroys it with contempt. Kratos returns to finish his journey of revenge in what may be the single most epic piece of entertainment I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. It's rare to see the Playstation 3 pushed to it's limits, but God of War III took everything about the PS2's hardware capabilities and expanded them beautifully. What we're left with is a gorgeous, perfectly excecuted title that will keep you on edge from beginning to end. In short: Buy this game. Buy it for yourself, buy it for a friend or loved one. Just do NOT buy it for a child as the M rating here is fully realized. The game contains graphic violence, gore, nudity and sexuality as in previous titles.

God of War 3 picks right up from 1 and 2 but totally better. The graffics are INSANE In 1080p. The fighting is more intense, the Gods are Strong and detailed to a T! I can't express how much some should buy this game!

This game is UNBELIEVABLE! The graphics are drop-dead GORGEOUS. The gameplay is OUTSTANDING. The story is REMARKABLE. The level designs are really CREATIVE. Parents, use caution if you're thinking about buying for anyone under 17 as the game can get pretty brutally graphic. Also, there is a particular scene that might not be appropriate for younger gamers. This game is definitely worth your time and hard earned cash. MUST BUY!!!!!! A++++++

I didn't start playing the God Of War serieis untill just after the first and second God Of War games were released on one disk. I played the first two and thought they were amaizing. I read the Gameinformer review of the third which got a 10 out of 10 rating which never happens. I decided to rent the game and the review wasn't lying. The controlls for the game are percise, the graphics are amaizing from 720p through 1080p I would imagine that they even look fenomenal on a 480p television. It is by far the best PlayStation game released in the consol's history. No developer has ever designed a better looking more in depth game than Sony Santa Monica. I have the origional version of the PlayStation 3 and it gave my system a work out because the graphics card had to work so hard to keep up with the stunning details of the game. I highly recomend any one who enjoys fighting games or games at all to buy this game.

This is the third in the GOW series. It happens to be the first of the three for me and I love it. I'll be purchasing the other two as long as they work with the PS3. Lots of killing and fighting.

I find the game series to simply be amazing, it follows greek mythology in a way that puts players right into the story. Fighting various enemies including various gods and creatures. I am excited for the ultimate edition because of all the really cool stuff that comes in it. Including a lifesize replica of Pandora's Box that was featured in the first game in the story. The music is amazing, graphics are amazing, and it is hard to put the games down.

  • A. unfortunately it will not be released on the PS2 as it would probably make the graphics card over heat and destroy the system. and if you're looking for a cheap PS3 go to gamestop and get a used 40GB PS3 for $250 or look around on craigslist and eBay

  • A. Even if this game does get released on the ps2 would you really enjoy it for all its worth? It wouldnt have high def graphics and because of the processing limit on the ps2 they creator would have to limit alot of things from the game making it less enjoyable. Best thing to do is to dish out the 299 for the ps3. well worth it.

  • A. So far the listed weapons for this title are Athena's Blades, the Bow, and the Cestus(which are giant stone fist you can punch with for powerful damage). If you purchase the God of War collectors edition of God of War 1 and 2 you get a free demo of God of War 3; in the demo you can use all three weapons plus take on the god Helios.

  • A. The gods in this game are true. a lot of the citeis are true as well. however Kratos as far as I know is not true. The game however, is Rated M so you would not be able to use this game for educational purposes. and a lot of the storyline in the game is just around the imagination of the developers so there's not a lot of accurate information in the game besides the designs of the gods and there names

  • A. The majority of the gods, heroes and creatures portrayed in this game are featured in Greek mythology, but the creators of the game took a lot of liberties with how they are portrayed. For example, in Greek mythology there is one minotaur at the center of the labyrinth, and in the game you fight dozens of them. In short, the game gives you a basic knowledge of the faces you'll see in Greek myths, but don't cite it as a source.
