God Of War 3 Remastered Honest Game Review
First off let me say that nothing new story wise has been added to the game, it is still God Of War 3. With that said you play as Kratos, the former God Of War, in his conquest to get vengeance against the God’s of Olympus. At the start of the game you are climbing Mount Olympus with your Titan allies when the battle truly starts. Not long after the game starts you are knocked down to the Underworld, losing most of your HP and Mana bar and weapon power. This is where the game really starts for Kratos.
You will have to make your way up to the top while fighting the minions of Olympus and some of the Gods. You will face off with Hades, Poseidon, Hermes, Helios and Zeus as your main God battles. There are other minor bosses you will face as well along the way. As you climb you will get more weapons and tools to help you with the battle. There are four weapons and three tools to collect on your journey. Each weapon has different combos and magics and each tool has various uses in combat.
The combat in the game is just like all the other God Of War games. It is combo based, bigger combos gets you more EXP and helps you stay alive. You can switch weapons mid combo to do different moves and increase our combo meter. This is very helpful but I’d like to be able to choose which rotation the weapons come out in, or which ones I want to use in general. You will find a favorite and a second favorite pretty quickly but all weapons are strong in their own ways. Every weapon can be upgraded for more damage and more moves. By the end of the game you can upgrade every weapon to max if you find some of the chests and do good enough combos.
The game now runs at 1080p and 60 frames per seconds but at a smaller resolution. The game looked good on the Ps3 but it looks even better on the Ps4. The soundtrack still holds up to this day, it is an epic score. The DLC arenas are included as well as bonus costumes that you can use for a few different buffs during the game. There is a photo mode as well so you can take pictures in game if you want. They decided to remove the multiplayer from the Remaster for whatever reason.
The story sits right around 6-8 hours and most people won’t want to replay the game again. Without multiplayer the 40$ price tag is a bit steep for anyone who already has the game. Still if you are new to the Sony family the game is worth going through if you have the extra cash. The brutal boss kills alone keep this game a great.
