Student’s Name Professor’s Name Course Date God of War III Video Game My video game of choice is called God of War III (GOW III) which is the fifth instalment of the God of War series. It is the sequel to God of War II published in 2007. Santa Monica Studio designed the GOW III game but Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE). The version for PlayStation 3 (PS3) was released in 2010. Upon release the God of War III was commended by an IGN reviewer praising the game for its graphics (Sullivan IGN.com). Most of the reviewers praised the design of the character while some said that he was perhaps the best-looking character in the world of video games. This game has also won several awards such as the Most Anticipated Game of 2010 an exciting game considering my experience with it. I enjoyed the game’s plot or story because it was full of emotion as Kratos fights to end the reign of the gods of Olympus. In addition the game designers did a great job in designing the game and its characters. The level of the graphics was beyond its time. GOW III is also an action-packed game as the main character fights to free himself from the gods. In this case he battles monsters gods and Titans in a bid to achieve his goal.

Why you played it (3 pts) 3. Describe 3 artistic features of the game. (9 pts. This isn't about story or character, it should the visual art and how it is used in the game.)
