Taste The Past During God Of War III?
God of War III marks the end of the trilogy, which means the entire story of Kratos should be wrapped up with a pretty little bow. ...okay, maybe the bow will be black and dripping with blood, but you get the point.
However, what if you're new to the series or you missed one of the previous two entries? Or even if you played both, you may have forgotten important parts of the plots, leaving you a little confused entering the third entry. Perhaps this is the reason why SCEA will be including a recap of sorts in GoWIII; as revealed by a Spanish source as noticed by Examiner.com, SCEA will get you all caught up at the start of GoWIII. According to SCEA's Stig Asmussen, this recap is indeed designed for new players to insure they're not in the dark, and he also hints that such flashbacks won't be entirely in video form. This means we might actually replay portions of the older games and I'm suddenly reminded of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night...remember when you played as Richter at the start and fought Dracula? So maybe we'll do something similar when GoWIII kicks off. This probably isn't a bad idea, especially considering that any finale to a series is pretty ineffective if you're not familiar with the entire story. We're not talking about long and involved role-playing plot lines but that doesn't mean the story isn't satisfying. It's dark and quite engaging.
We certainly appreciate the thought but then again, we also hope they don't harp on the past too much. This may very well be Kratos' final adventure and we want to see as much new stuff as possible!
