God of War is one of the premier franchises that PlayStation has. The original game was a huge hit for the PlayStation 2. Today, we are taking a look at the PS3 version of God of War which was given a nice HD coat of paint to make it look even better and bloodier than before.
I Am Kratos
I have to say that Kratos is one of my all-time favorite video game characters and his saga is one of the most epic I have ever had the pleasure to experience in a video game. Kratos is a spartan warrior who makes a deal with the God Ares so that he can destroy his enemies. Kratos is tricked, ends up killing his own wife and child and must serve Ares. As you would expect this does not go down well and it results in Kratos waging war not just on Ares, but the rest of the Gods and the whole of Olympus. It is very well done and the story even now has a real epic and important feel to it.
Kratos Looks More Bloody Than Usual
The HD remaster of the original God of War that we are looking at here looks great. It was already a good-looking game on the PlayStation 2. This PlayStation 2 version has sharpened up those visuals and smoothed many of the edges. It is still a very impressive looking game and once you have experienced this version it can be quite hard to go back and play the original PS2 version of the game.

The environments in this game are amazing and it is all set in ancient Greece, but the way you go from area to area and each one has its own style is quite amazing stuff. It makes for some very memorable moments and you will encounter all kinds of iconic Greek gods and characters.
Blades of Chaos
The gameplay of the God of War series is something that I really do enjoy. Kratos is an absolute beast when it comes to combat. Your main form of attack is his Blades of Chaos and these are a lot of fun to use. Through the game, you learn many new abilities such as being able to use the dead, a medusa head and even throwing lightning bolts. The combat is far more varied than people give it credit for and everything that you have at your disposal can be upgraded as you play.
A huge part of the fun for me is dishing out these monster combos. It is a nice extra challenge that you can give yourself and something I always enjoy. I find the overall difficulty of God of War to be fine. It has a lot of combat as well as a few simple battles and some truly incredible boss fights. It is just a lot of fun to play from start to finish and despite all the blood and violence I feel that this is a game that does also require you to be smart as you play.
To say that I love God of War is a massive understatement. The PS3 version is the way you need to play this game. It is a ton of fun from the start right to the end and it is a truly iconic video game that every gamer needs to experience. It is amazing to see the start of Kratos’s journey and overall, I feel that this game holds up very well.
