    A well done remake of a classic. It has never looked better and the gameplay is still fantastic.

    As far as Remasters go God of War III is a welcome but an unnecessary one. The single addition of the Photo Mode and updated graphics are something I feel just aren't worth paying $40 for a five year old game.

    Some may wonder why it's so high-priced, or why certain aspects of the game weren't as polished as the rest of it. But God of War III Remastered shows that Sony Santa Monica is more than ready for PS4 development, and that means we're in for something cool whenever Kratos decides to cover new territory. In the meantime, give his god-pummeling journey a revisit.

    Five years later, God of War III is still a great beat them all to play. It has not aged a bit in terms of gameplay and its remastering makes it definitely look great to all eyes. Not essential for those who already know the game, but clearly interesting if you've never played it before on PS3.

    While it was, and remains, a great and classic game in its own right, unless you have somehow never played it before, you should give this Remastered version a pass.

    GoW III is an incredible adventure and this is the best way to play it. Still, if you have already played it, you won't find too many additions to the experience.

    That parade of cathartic moments still makes God of War 3 worth playing, especially given the vividness and eye-popping destruction woven into every major battle. It peaks and drags and peaks and drags, sure, but God of War at its high point was never going to be sustainable.

    When I played God of War III in PlayStation 3 I remember to think, this is the beast game ever the graphics the scale everything was epic,When I played God of War III in PlayStation 3 I remember to think, this is the beast game ever the graphics the scale everything was epic, almost 10 years now I played this wonderful game again.
    Like our good Greek Friend **** said “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river, and he's not the same man.” so in this 10 years a lot of things change the combat in Gow 3 still fun but a bit repetitive if compared with devil may cry 5 or Souls game the enemy design are too simple also and been honest the narrative that looks cool and badass now are just cringe.

    Put this all side, the music still epic as the CG the boss fights are fun and make you fell great specially in the Quick time events that only Santa Monica know how to make the violent and graphic at the same time never was so exciting to press square, so if you didn't play this master piece yet you can't lose it, god of war 3 is part of the video game history. If you already played this 10 years ago the games still fun and worth for a good price.

After dinner that day, i went on my PC and found out that GOW3 is getting a PS4 remaster. Coincidence? I don't think so.Being a PS3 game at the end of the day, the remastered graphics may not be up to current PS4 standards, but they're still very good. Definitely acceptable. Graphics aren't the reason I like this game though. The gameplay is amazing, and fun. Boss fights are epic and even the general fighting is solid.
    The puzzles could've been harder but the scenery/locations are pretty cool.
    It's a must play
