Subscribers to the Official PlayStation Magazine (UK), have been treated today in being able to get their hands on reading the world exclusive review of the highly anticipated PS3 exclusive, God of War III. This follows the exclusive Heavy Rain review the magazine had in its previous issue.
Fans will certainly be in uproar, however, as it has been awarded an incredibly commendable 9/10 – which however places it below the magazine review scores for other PlayStation 3 titles including 10/10 for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, LittleBigPlanet and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
In concluding the review, Nathan Ditum, Reviews Editor, writes “The game is inches away from scoring 10/10, and it’s only the familiarity of the core gameplay that makes it feel less than the very, very best. But it’s definitely the biggest, and if this is the finale (and the corpses littering the stage by the end of the game suggest it might be), then God of War III gives PlayStation’s toughest hero the send-off he deserves.”
To read the full review, you’ll have to wait until Tuesday 16th when the magazine hits store shelves, or you can order a copy to be delivered to your door from Future Publishing here.
