Have been wanting to play God of War 3 on PS3, but as I hadn’t played any of the others, I figured that was a bit silly.
So last night, after deciding to shelve Endless Ocean 2 (I clocked up a good 40 hours gameplay), I fired up the modded PS2 in the rumpus room, and started playing.
I have to say, I really love the violence – great to take out some frustrations after a crap day at work! I’ve only completed the first stage so far, but from what I can see God of War is a great game, and it reminds me a lot of Heavenly Sword, so I expect this was the inspiration for that game. I don’t recall Quick Time Events on a PS2 game previously. Fun bits of hack and slash, and impressive graphics – nice work with the hydra, I was actually quite scared to fight it!
Intense game, so I think I’ll just work my way through an area at a time. I don’t think there is any need to try to collect everything, but I have a FAQ at the ready to gather all the chests as I go – shouldn’t be too much of a bother 🙂
