God Of War 3 review round-up
Kratos enjoys stunning critical acclaim
Almost all of the major God Of War 3 reviews have now gone live - and Kratos' debut on PS3 has enjoyed an incredible reception.
GamesRadar's God Of War 3 review granted the game 10/10. The site called it: 'A 10-hour experience that constantly delivers cool new areas to explore and diverse monsters that are a joy to fight.'
Destructoid followed in a similar vein. The site also awarded the game a 10/10. Reviewer Nick Chester says: 'If you're looking to show off the power of your console, this is your new showcase - it's an experience that simply can't be missed.'
1Up's review offered just as much applause - awarding the title an 'A' rating. It wrote: 'It's the most consistent and varied of the [God Of War trilogy], and when it's at its best the first two can't touch it.'
Gamespot's God Of War 3 review weighed in with an almighty 9/10. It called the game: 'A brilliantly paced, meticulously detailed adventure that thrills and satisfies until the very end.'
Then there's IGN UK, whose God Of War 3 review settled on 9.4/10. The site's write up offers special acclaim to the game's visuals, which it calls: 'Simply breathtaking, on a scale that puts most Hollywood blockbusters to shame. Attention to detail is so meticulous it's virtually impossible to fault.'
Elsewhere, TheSixthAxis offered a 9/10 review, writing: 'There won't be a developer on the planet that isn't looking at what's been achieved here with envious eyes.'
Over on Eurogamer, the title got a 9/10. The site writes: 'if you want to revel in old-school pleasures decked out in the very brightest new armour, this is about as good as it gets'.
All of this, of course, comes after the UK Official PlayStation Magazine's God Of War 3 review - which slapped a big, fat '9' on it.
What's it doing on Metacritic, we hear you ask? Marvellously - that's how. It's averaging out at 94 per cent.
