Just played the demo. Thought it was fantastic.

I'm not really into hack&slash games but really enjoyed it. Gameplay is smooth, loads of moves, plenty of gore and they mixed it up so it isn't too repetitive.

Some great games out this month :D

It is God of War, it is great. Sadly it is not what David Jaffe said it would be, the guy is a douche for leading people to believe it is visually way beyond anything else out there on console.

David Jaffe Sees God of War 3, Spouts Expletives

Regardless though, the game is a MUST BUY. :)

To be fair, he said it in 2008 before Killzone 2, Uncharted 2.

He repeated it on a number of occasions since then including at E3 if memory serves me correctly. Either way, visually it is a long way from being the best on any of the console platforms. Fortunately the story seems good and the controls are killer tight so I am going to be a happy boy anyway. :)

The new stuff looks far better than I saw in the demo, and that's what everyone is saying.

Guess we'll find out later in the month :p

The Icarus Vent bit on the demo was awful :/

Ripping Helios' head off was ok though :)

I liked the vent. It was better than God of War 2's pegasus sections at least.

Got mine too. As soon as I've eaten I'm throwing it in. Sorry, FF13, but you're going away for a while :D

Been playing a couple of hours. Started on Titan mode but after six attempts at the first boss I switched back to God mode...

The game seems no better than a graphically updated God of War 2, which is kind of high praise indeed. I can't help but feel a little underwhelmed though, after games like Batman, Assassin's Creed etc over the last couple of years.

Has still had me laughing out loud at the violence every five minutes :)

Gahhhhh, ordered mine on amazon and got an email today saying payment rejected - for some reason they deleted my card details and it defaulted to one that expired in 2008 :(

Friend of mine (Narratology type person) says the game story line is really really good and loved it. Can't really give an opinion on it, as I've not played it, but it does look quite fun if it's a type of game you like.

(He ALSO said that Dante's Inferno was really good story wise, but was just a re-shelling of God of War :D)

I loved Dante's Inferno, but God of War 3 did almost everything better. The one thing that was missing (and yet present in God of War 1, 2, and Dante's) is the sense of adventure. It's really quite short and there aren't as many locations / locations are re-used more.

But there are were deffo couple of annoying bits

The guitar hero bit for someone not familiar with a ps pad mainly!

I played on normal difficulty, and tbh that was the most difficult boss for me. I died once, which is more than I can say for the others :D
