God of War 3 Remastered brings epic battles to life with graphics and an elaborate plot that put Kratos at the center of carnage and destruction as he pursues revenge against the Gods who have betrayed him. Set in the realm of brutal Greek mythology, God of War 3 Remastered is the single-player game that allows players to assume the fearless role of the ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he rises from the darkest depths of Hades to scale the very heights of Mount Olympus to seek his bloody revenge. Armed with double-chained blades and an array of new weapons and magic, Kratos must take on mythology’s deadliest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus.

    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. God of War 3 is the best way to close the trilogy. The history is the best point of the game. Blood too, like when you kill Hermes, Helios, almost every gods we make that. The difference from PS3 version to PS4 is some graphic quality, not too much, effects and the 60 fps. If you don't have a PS3 this is a must-have game for you. Hope you enjoy it. Expand

    There is a neat thing about God of War 3 Remastered. First it's the graphics: Santa Monica decided to amp out the graphics. All of the DLCsThere is a neat thing about God of War 3 Remastered. First it's the graphics: Santa Monica decided to amp out the graphics. All of the DLCs are included as well as photo mode (where you can share a photo based on what photo colour you want). The sad part about God of War is that the controls/story/gameplay is pretty much the same with a few exemptions: Start and select is basically the middle touchpad button and the options button. There is a lightbar - which your playing it with the colour red. So it will shine red when you create a new game (or load one, challenge mode, etc.). The third is basically the graphics. Other than that, it would be more disappointing to see a return of the Remastered (unless you happen to play from the beginning of the story to the end - which is God of War 3). EDIT: What I did not realize was for a fact that your controller changes colour based on the weapon itself that your wielding. I did not realize that from the time you do have to obtain new weapons.
