Trivia

The dismembered head of Helios has an attack called "solar flare". It has the same name and effect as the technique used in the anime/manga Dragon Ball Z See more »

Goofs

All the Gods and Titans are called by their Greek names, as this game is based on Greek mythology. Therefore, Hercules should be called "Heracles". Hercules is the Roman alternate. While factually this may be the case, the developers chose to use the name Hercules as apposed to Heracles simply because Hercules is known more commonly by the general public. See more »

Destroyer of Games
12 November 2010 | by Vezon123See all my reviews

The latest issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine is in, and it's got the first review of God of War 3, giving Kratos' third outing a 9/10.

Is it better than the recent rip-off (but pretty bloody good) Dante's Inferno? Yes, says the review in issue 43 of OPM, and it even destroys the first two GoW games too.

"They fall a long way short of the series' long-awaited PS3 debut. Like, a really, really long way - this is on a scale PS3 has never known. It makes not only its predecessors seem small, but the competition too. Darksiders and even the very decent Dante's Inferno have nothing to compare with Kratos' almighty comeback," it reads.

So why a 9 and not a 10? "The game is inches from scoring 10/10, and it's only the familiarity of the core gameplay (standing on the shoulders of giants) 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," says the review.
