Well it was kinda disappointing ( I know this is not the very first board to address it ) . The story was okay and what happened in the ending was fitting but I really feel that they could've executed it a bit better , I mean I knew that in the end either Kratos would kill himself or he and Zeus would kill each other because Kratos is not exactly the noblest of the lot , He probably slaughtered the entire population of a country including innocent bystanders and his motive for revenge isn't all that great either( I mean after he got his revenge , there will be nothing left for Kratos to live for.) . They could changed the ending a bit , maybe show Zeus being sad before he died and after Kratos kills himself and after the credits , show a brief cutscene where Kratos sees his wife and Calliope in the distance and he slowly walks towards him while the screen fades to white or something . Perhaps Santa Monica wanted to show that if you go on Mass Genocide , there isn't going to be a good ending .
Gameplay wise it's not a step forward from GOW II , the combat is nice but honestly I think they focused a bit too much on combat , because the Puzzles were embarrassing and there weren't any difficult traversal sections . It actually feels like a step backward , GOW II had the blades , the hammer , the spear and the sword and GOW III had blades , another blade , yet another blade and gauntlets , I had high hopes for the gauntlets until I pressed L1 and Square ( Seriously I think they're a bit obsessed with the blades of Athena ) . Remember that part in GOW II before meeting up Icarus ( and killing him ) where there's some crazy swinging and bridge collapsing and slow motion , that was the epic ness of GOW II , The epic moments of GOW III mainly includes moving in a brisk pace while the background changes dramatically . Honestly I preferred GOW II over III , what about you guys ?
