Critic Reviews for God of War III Remastered

God of War 3 Remastered's update is mostly visual, but the action reminds us why we love this bloody series.

That parade of cathartic moments still makes God of War 3 worth playing, especially given the vividness and eye-popping destruction woven into every major battle. It peaks and drags and peaks and drags, sure, but God of War at its high point was never going to be sustainable. Five years on, it's clear that God of War 3 is especially emblematic of a series trying to figure out how to go higher when you've already reached the top of Mount Olympus.

Hardly a game that was in desperate need of a makeover, but the original is still a solid action adventure and Kratos' story is given at least an element of closure.

The core game is still amazing, though the lack of any notable changes or additions in this release disappoints

God of War III on the PS4 is the same exciting game that it always was--just a little prettier.

This re-release seems unnecessary at first glance, but the conclusion of Kratos' journey serves up a level of spectacle that remains impressive in 2015.

The simplicity of the plot, the solid combat, and the bizarre perspective shifts during boss gameplay make this feel like it's the "purest" God of War game to me. It's a tribute to how much the game does right to the point that I didn't remember a lot of this stuff when I started playing God of War III again, playing from start to finish in a single session (normally I space these things out).

While God of War 3: Remastered may scratch the nostalgia itch we all have for Kratos-related mayhem, it doesn't offer anything more than a good-looking trip down memory lane. If you have yet to play the original God of War 3, this would be a great opportunity to do so, but those who don't want to have their memories tarnished due to a lack of bonus material may want to steer clear of God of War 3: Remastered.
