    I do love it on IGN when the idiots start ripping apart the score.

    Firstly they haven’t even played the game and secondly what wrong with a fucking 9.3? As IGN puts it – Outstanding.

    Looking forward to Edge giving it a -7 because Kratos looked at them funny on the title screen.

    10/10

    9-10 seems to be the average so far.

    And hey, i liked Dante’s Inferno. Was actually decent, GoW clone? Maybe, but GoW with a karma tree which was nice.

    #24 4 years ago
  25. DaMan

    this just in: hundreds of Sonybots commited suicide in the past 10-20 minutes. GoW didn’t get perfect scores.

    @25 actually it’s a solid 9.

    I don’t understand this. Everybody have a complain about *God Of War 3 is the same as God Of War 1,2* NO SHIT SHERLOCK…

    and because of that it has 9.2-9.3 and e.t.c.

    All those people who cry and complain about a game not getting a 9.8 or even 10..why the hell do you care so much about that? A 10 is nonsense anyway, no game can get a 10. Nothing is perfect.

    a 9.3 from IGN is fine for example, why even complain? sigh…and really, in the end..what matters most is what you think about the game, not a reviewer. This is aimed at those sad souls who always cry about that shit.

    @ 47: No 10? A ten does not mean that it’s perfect but means that it’s a new standard a game everybody will talk about for years to come. Half Life 2, HALO, Ocarina of Time, Golden Eye, ICO, Shadow of the Collosus, Warcraft, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime, Tekken 3, SF 4…the list goes on and on. These games and others were something really special, and you’re right GoW 3 is not a ten considering the titles above. But to say no game deserves a ten is a bit rubbish imo.

    #47 4 years ago
  48. Moonwalker1982

    @ 48, i agree with that. I didn’t understand those reviews at all. I played a huge bit of DI and i liked it alot, Gametrailers was also whining about the smallest things, not things to complain about anyway.

    @47 its because people feel that the game is underrated. God Of War is a Santa Monica work that looks absolutely stunning and it deserve some recognition.

    I remember Mass Effect 2 reviews. That was seriously overrated. Babylon 5, Star Trek story, characters with the same mechanics and with the last Terminator boss recieve 96% overall?

    But here, people complain that God OF War 3 is the same as God Of War 1,2. Fans expect that and buying this game because they know what to expect.

  51. KAP

    God Of War 3 reviews are pretty good but i cant wait to hear these same sites review Halo Reach and them ever mentioning how “Similar the gameplay is” as i keep hearing that from IGN and Gametrailers.. its pathetic.

    Do they not realise its a game from a series with machanics that work?

    #51 4 years ago
  52. Moonwalker1982

    Were the gameplay mechanics and physics really better in Dante’s Inferno?

    #52 4 years ago
  53. KAP

    “God of War III is much the same: a technical marvel, but with all the clever stuff turned towards the aim of very basic gratification. There are no branching paths, no complex decisions, and no multiplayer modes, but this particular game is all the better for it”

    Thats more like it.

    Waiting for EDGE to give it either a three or an eleven to get a few extra hits, as they’re want to do.

    Also, game informer gives it a double-10:

    you guys are really sad.

    Edge gave the original a 8. if GoW was the first title that brought this type of gameplay to consoles they’d probably rate it a 9.

    #55 4 years ago
  56. Michael O’Connor

    Indeed, and the second got an 7.

    Chains of Olympus also got 7.

    A 7 in EDGE is the equivalent of all those 8.5s in every other site listed up there.

    Hey, what happened to that ‘leaked’ IGN 10/10?

    Regardless, excellent results all round, I’d quite like to play this through at some point.

    I’m thinking Edge will go with an….. 8.
