The God of War franchise has existed for nearly two decades and continues to be extremely popular to this day. Not too long ago, God of War Ragnarok sold over 5 million copies in its first week and went on to win PlayStation Blog’s Game of The Year award.
While Kratos’ transition to the Norse realm has been an enormous success, the gaming industry was also fond of his adventures in Greek mythology. The Greek saga spanned three mainline God of War titles with plenty of action and spectacle to keep audiences engaged.
The third game in the Greek trilogy, God of War 3, was released over 13 years ago and delivered an epic conclusion to Kratos’ journey in 2010.
God of War 3 was the first game in the franchise built for HD resolution and the latest console at the time. Santa Monica utilized all the power found in the PlayStation 3 and delivered a jaw-dropping visual experience with the title.
God of War 3 continued the tradition of large-scale bosses that fans had come to expect from the franchise. However, the PS3 allowed the developers to turn everything up a notch. The game opened with an incredible boss battle with Poseidon, leading to one of the most memorable sequences in the series.
This grand scale was further seen in the epic showdown against Kronos. The fluid and fast combat also carried over the previous titles with new options like a tackle for more freedom in combat.
Much like its predecessor, God of War 3 introduced multiple weapons in addition to the iconic Blades of Exile. The game saw nearly unanimous praise from fans and critics, living up to the legacy of the first two games on PS2.
Despite its age, God of War 3 still looks and feels amazing to play. The title was remastered for the PS4 in 2015 and currently runs at a solid 1080p 60 fps. For those who have never tried the game, it can often be found for $10 on sales and easily justifies the price with an exhilarating, action-packed experience.
