God of War 3 is an excellent game. I think it’s, in many ways, the best exclusive PS3 title thus far. But it ain’t perfect, and we're all about finding the best, and worst, in games. As critics, it's our job to point out the extremes on both sides, so here, we discuss the darker side of God of War 3. (more...)

A post by Ken Feldman of Santa Monica Studios, the developer of God of War 3, stated on the God of War forums that it took their fastest tester 12-13 hours to complete the game. As a game reviewer, I don't consider myself privy to special knowledge or skills, especially considered to testers, who literally play games 8-10 hours a day, and more often 6-7 days a week. But this is a false statement, as I completed the game in roughly 8 hours, 35 minutes, including the end credits and cutscenes. This screenshot is of my final auto-save:

When I’d set out for GDC, God of War 3 was fresh in my mind. I’d just beat the game a few days earlier, and while my brain still today staggers in awe of the grandiose nature of Kratos’ finale, one rotten tart left a sourness only someone who helped make the game could remove. I didn’t intend to find a cure to my ailment concerning the end of the game, which you can read about here, but instead received some important, and somewhat numbing and humbling, food for thought.

It all came from a chance meeting with Stig Asmussen, Game Director on God of War 3. (more...)
