God of War II ended with Kratos, Gaia and the Titans marching towards Olympus. God of War III will conclude the story of Kratos' attempt to destroy Olympus. Set in the realm of brutal Greek mythology, God of War III is a single-player game that allows players to take on the climatic role of the ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he scales through the intimidating heights of Mt. Olympus and the dark depths of Hell to seek revenge on those who have betrayed him. Armed with double-chained blades, and an array of new weapons and magic for this iteration of the trilogy, Kratos must take on mythology's darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus.

At E3 2009, the God of War III demo was revealed. The demo showed Kratos on the cliffs of Mount Olympus battling the undead, a centaur, a chimera, and a cyclops. Kratos does not fight Helios, but he rips the head off of Helios gaining a new ability called "Helios Beam" which can be used as a lantern in dark areas, a beam to blind enemies, and to reveal hidden secrets. It is also revealed that Kratos can shoot harpies with his fire bow and use them to get across gaps that are too large to jump or glide across with the Wings of Icarus. In the demo, it is revealed that Kratos keeps the Golden Fleece and the Wings of Icarus from God of War II, however, the Blade of Olympus's whereabouts are unknown. The hefty 2.6GB demo is currently available on the PSN Store.

I can't wait. Do you think GOW III will actually get GOTY(Game of the year)? With many great titles *scheduled* to come out this year, I personally think it wont get GOTY, but it may win a lot of awards though.

10 hrs seems like a pretty short game, doesn't it? might look into buying this even though i've never played any of the previous ones
but i need to use my ps3 as something other than a blu ray player

Tha'st because OP of this thread doesn't has his crap together and the game is actually 15 to 20 hours of gameplay depending on what difficulty level you play the game on.

Well they measure games based on the normal difficulty I believe for casual gamers to complete it. If they said the hours it would take for each game to beat with each difficulty each game would be at least 30hrs. So I think its wrong to measure a game based on difficulty and playthroughs. One playthrough I would say would be 11 hrs on this game in normal mode (judging by hack and slash games, and the past games) maybe im off a couple of hours

it only takes like 3-4 days(casual playing style) to beat a GOW game, they are really short but the experience lasts forever.
