God of War 3 God of War 3
Debates over its final boss fight aside, God of War 2's ending made for good theater: Greek Kratos rode on the titan Gaia's back as she scaled Mount Olympus in pursuit of a gods vs. titans face-off with Zeus and friends. It served as a big cliffhanger -- literally or not, depending on your taste for puns -- which set up God of War 3 as the final game in the trilogy. Looking back on that ending now, it seems clear that the developers knew what they had in mind for the third game all along, but at the time it left a lot open to interpretation. Would it be an entire game on the side of the mountain? Or might Kratos participate in some kind of War of the Monsters-style spin-off?

The outcome is nothing quite so drastic. This is the same God of War  formula you're used to, spiced up with tons of variety and a new setting that centers around -- but does not take place entirely on the side of -- Mount Olympus. I'll spare the exact location details to avoid spoilers, but once again the series blends combat, platforming, and puzzles to make a grand, story-focused adventure, wrapped in high quality production values, giant set pieces, and over-the-top cut-scenes. Chances are, if you were bothered by things like the button-pressing minigames, the puzzles, the linearity, etc. in previous God of War games, God of War 3 isn't going to change your mind. And if you loved them before, get ready for an incredibly well made follow-up in that same template.
