Review: God of War III

New console, same game
By MITCH KRPATA  |  April 1, 2010
2.5 2.5 Stars

The buff exterior of God of War III belies a sluggish heart. With nothing new to say, the game repeats itself at a greater volume. The soundtrack is all screeches, gurgles, and an insistent brass orchestra. Even pausing the game is accompanied by the deafening scrape of a sword being unsheathed. If Kratos has at last found peace, the rest of us can look forward to some quiet.
