How is this not selling more in Europe, it might not beat God of War 2, with Europe lagging like this!

JustThatGamer, I thought God of War III was better than II...Only just, but it definitely feels less epic story wise. In the previous GoWs, the flashbakcs used to be epic (titan vs god battle in GoW II). Here they were replaced by those animated scenes which lack the epicness factor. Pandora's effect on the story could've been done so much better. And the story reaaally missed Linda Hunt's narration.

GodOfWar_3ever, I don't agree that the story is weaker. Comparing the story of GoW II to GoW III is a stupid thing to do; it's like reading a book and comparing the middle of the story to the ending as if they're completely different stories. GoW III is an ending to a story, therefore GoW III can't have much more character development and new events unfolding like GoW I&II did, as the final part of the trilogy it has to conclude everything that happened in previous parts of the story, GoW I and GoW II. In my opinion GoW III concludes brilliantly, I'd say it's a perfectly fitting end to the trilogy. DakonBlackblade, very well said.

MiSan you have to look past all that rage to understand Kratos real motives, troughout the whole trilogy Kratos is alwhays looking for salvation and redemption, he alwhays loose his way amidst his revenge tough, thats what the fear Kratos part in the end of the game is all about. He definetly didnt go down wimpy.

Disagreed. GoW III was much better than GoW II in gameplay, weaker is story, and still holds up against it. Also the boss fights were the best in the series. RE5 isn't as good as RE4 in my opinion cause of Sheeva...and the retarded inventory system.

well it was just ok for me seeing that this is the final one of the trilogy. Maybe I am the only one but it didn't really rock me as much as I hope it did. Reminds me of RE5's weak sauce ending actually.

Story-wise I think the ending was great, however I do think that the final fight could've been more epic, I wish they kept the Kratos vs Zeus vs Gaia fight in, I saw some deleted scenes and it looked incredible, if they released it as free DLC that'd be awesome. With all that said, I still think the final fight was epic but it could of been EPIC.

Also this game isn’t too short at all. If you play through on easy/ normal and don’t look for all the chest and godly possessions, obviously it’s not going to take as long as it takes someone who plays the game properly. Normal difficulty took me 10 hours, hard took me 11 hours, very hard took me just over 12 hours, how the hell is that short?! It’s a perfect length, with 10-12 hours of epic and fun gameplay.

This game is far superior to God of War 2. The story is great, a perfect end to the trilogy. What people don’t understand is that God of War 3 isn’t meant to be judged as a self-contained story, it’s just an ending to a story, and a very good one at that. The beginning (God of War 1) is that which precedes everything and before which there was nothing, the middle (God of War 2) follows the beginning and precedes the end, and the end (God of War 3) follows the middle and there is nothing afterwards, therefore Gow3 can’t have more character development and events unfolding, that would mean there’d have to be a Gow4, which won’t happen because obviously it’s a trilogy.

I actully agree with some of what you've said Biddles. the story was dissapointing to me, the art design couldve been better and it was a bit on the short side. but it was a good game. gameplay was excellent and excellent production values.

The game was inferior to God of War 2, the things you said were good were infact good, however the story was absolutley terrible. The locations in the game were very poor compared to the other two aswell. The entire Titan God war that was built up came to pretty much nothing. And it was very short under 8 hours short.

Biddles...people have different opinions. Me personally, I hate CoD and all those other military FPS (Anything that doesn't involve aliens). But lots of people dig that kind of thing. You might not like God of War III. But there are plenty of people who regard it as one of the best games ever. Great graphics, great soundtrack, a good ending to the franchise, amazing boss battles and sense of scale, and the best combat system the series ever had makes it stand out in a flood of its rip offs (dante's inferno anyone ?) and CoD imitators.

It will only need to sell over 20K for a year to get a million extra sales, thats not even taking into account platinum edition boosts.

Even if it seems like games have low legs, over a period of 1 - 2 years they end up surprising and selling over 1 million - 2 million more

How much was this adjusted up by after NPD March results came in ? it looks like by 100k to me.

NPD March US only sales - 1.1 million

Vgchartz March US only sales - 860k

Thats still 160k low and some of that 100k which it was adjusted up by surely must have been from Canada + Other countries....
1.1 million margin of error = 110k
so its not even within the margin of error...
hmmmm...
+ it hasn't been adjusted a bit in Europe...since this was undertracked in America, I'm inclined to believe its a bit undertracked in Europe also since VGC EU numbers are rumored to be less accurate.

In its first month in American regions, VGC has this at 1.1 million...
NPD has it at 1.1 million in US and I read somewhere TheSource posted that US sales are 83.33% of "Americas" sales usually... thats 5/6 th of the sales... Judging by that math it would have sold 220k in Canada + Other regions bringing the NPD influenced numbers to 1.32 million first month in America.

Hopefully at E3, Sony will reveal worldwide shipments...Lets see if VGC decides to make any adjustments...

Comparing GOW3 to GOW2 both on normal yes its much shorter, my first playthrough on GOW3 trying to get trophies took me less time than a speed run on GOW2 on easy. I didnt even die 5 times.

Of the bosses Poseidon & Hades were cool, Hermes wasnt really a fight, Hercules was disappointing, Chronos was good but not a boss, Scorpion was lame, Zeus was forgettable.

No offense,is your brain a muscle?

GOW 3 is better than HALO 3,true,but Xbox360 exclusives that are "after" GOW3 released still can't surpass it's quality for a long time,the fact is XBOX360 has got "weaker" power.

Usually, the GoW fans are the ones who purchase those games early while the rest wait till the price drops and I think the reason is bec they think there is little replayability in the games and that they are not worth the full price tag.
