GAME God of War 3            

 

Overall Appeal

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9  9.5  10

     -This is a amazing game that will set the standard for this genre. Amazing gameplay action, bloody battle, way cool story and a major hardcore character

     -However, few extras and limited options  

 

 

Fun Factor

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Fun, Fun, Bloody, Fun

     -Don’t let your kids play, or see, or hear about

     -FUN!    

 

 

Replay Value

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The game is worth playing the story again, no question

     -However, with little extras unlocked and no other game modes or online, it may ne be a keeper    

 

 

Presentation/Graphics

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9  9.5  10

     -Wow, Damn, Holy Crap; that sums up my first response

     -Bloody, Gory, Ferocious, Yuck; sums up the M for Mature rating

     -Cool, Sweet, Epic; that sums up the gameplay

 

 

Online

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Nothing, which surprised me, but I guess there wasn’t any online on the other God of War games either         

 

Storyline

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -A deep story that makes me wish I paid attention in Classic History class in high school

     -A little slow at first, it picks up at the end though   

                       

 

Character

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Wow, I was so impressed with Kratos, Ronin always goes on with how hardcore he is, and I hate to say it (I mean really, really hate to say it), but he is right this guy is amazing

     -If you like hardcore, tough as nails, bada** heroes, look no further

 

 

Customizable

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -You can upgrade your weapons; you also unlock and get rewarded with new ones

     -Other than that there is really nothing to customise    

 

 

Camera

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The only real flaw (which you can barely call it one) is the lack of camera control. It is single analog, so you can’t move the camera at all, which I really didn’t like, but was a small detail that didn’t really take away from the game

 

 

Controls

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The controls are a little tough at first, most because of the fast pace of them

     -Lots of prompts make it get really comfortable really fast  

 

 

Game Mode

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Basic story mode, with a few extras once you beat the game                     

    

 

Gameplay Options

     1   2   3   4   5   6  6.5   7   8   9   10

     -The story is quite linear; there is a sequence you need to follow and not a lot of chance to improvise

    

 

Progression of Difficulty

     1   2   3   4   5   6  7  8   8.5   9   10

     -The game is challenging, this style of game is not really my forte, so I had a lot to learn

     -But trust me it is worth it, also the prompts are fun and surprisingly exciting

     -Standard difficulty settings at the beginning, you unlock more when you beat the game 

 

 

Minor Details

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8 8.5  9   10

     -I didn’t really like the fact you have no camera control, it made some of the parts harder than they had to be

     -The story gets really interesting at the end

     -Head ripping, disembowelling fun

 

 

Sound/Soundtrack

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The voice acting is top notch

     -Fitting soundtrack and excellent effects as well
