All the Gods and Titans are called by their Greek names, as this game is based on Greek mythology. Therefore, Hercules should be called "Heracles". Hercules is the Roman alternate. While factually this may be the case, the developers chose to use the name Hercules as apposed to Heracles simply because Hercules is known more commonly by the general public. See more »

My favourite PS3 exclusive.
31 March 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember the day I bought this, I don't remember why I wanted it, just that I needed something new, and it definitely was something new and worth while. This was the first game in the series that I played, it was relatively easy to learn and get used to. From there on in it was the most exhilarating and grand game I have ever played. It got to the point where I was obsessed with it, I couldn't get enough. I ended up buying it twice, just to get the collectors edition, it was worth it for the art book. The first two games weren't as good in my opinion, and ascension was fairly good.

The Game: The first thing you will notice is the impressive graphics engine. The scale of this game is the best and biggest I have ever seen, nothing can compare to it. The game play was very easy on normal difficulty, hard difficulty makes you a little more cautious of offencive style game play. I have played through the story twice. I also enjoyed loading an old save just to fight the boss's again. The Poseidon boss was a great way to open a game. The hades boss had a lot of cool combat moves, such as when hades tries to take your soul or when you lodge your blades into his head and bash his face into the ceiling, it was great. The real boss that stands out is the Cronos battle, it is the grandest moment of the game, it is a testament to the graphics engine. Of course there is the usual sex mini game, this time with Aphrodite, it shows how life like video game characters can look. Let me tell you the character models from Kratos to the chimera or the titans, is visually impressive and realistic. Overall the presentation is as high quality as it gets, maybe not on par with Uncharted, but still great.

The game play: The combat feels and looks the best out of the base games in the franchise. The blades of exile will be your best friends throughout the game, the rest have little purpose other than variety. The animations on the monsters are incredible. I would look forward to every time I could see the Cerberus or chimera. This may very well be the most bloody and graphic video game ever made. Organs are spilled in great detail, eyes are ripped from Cyclops's heads. Legs are severed and heads are ripped screaming from bodies. The quick time events on the mini boss's are always great to see. The chimera takes the most punishment, he has three forms. The first one you cut off his tail, the second you stab and rip his eyes out, and the last you break his horn off and ram it through his skull. It holds nothing back.

This is by far my favourite game on the ps3, and will remain there since this console generation is starting to close up. Highly recommended.
