OPM UK has given God of War III a nine in the game’s first ever review in its latest issue hitting subs now.

Stating the reason why it barely missed out on a ten, the magazine’s Nathan Ditum said in closing the review: “The game is inches away from scoring 10/10, and it’s only the familiarity of the core gameplay that makes it feel less than the very, very best.

“But it’s definitely the biggest, and if this is the finale (and the corpses littering the stage by the end of the game suggest it might be), then God of War III gives PlayStation’s toughest hero the send-off he deserves.”


Kratos’ last stand releases on March 16 in the US and March 25 in Japan. The game’s release is being aimed at March 19 in the UK, although that is still to be confirmed.

A new trailer will air on GameTrailers TV in the US tomorrow night. It’ll be the first time a new trailer has aired for the hack-and-slash in nearly a year.
