God of War III Becomes God of Metacritic

March 8, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

God of War III‘s embargo lifted today, resulting in an endless batch of reviews, most of which are perfect-including PlayStation LifeStyle’s. With all the exquisite praise the PlayStation 3 exclusive title is receiving, it has become a “God” on Metacritic, reaching a landmark feat in such a short space of time.

In only its first day of obtaining reviews, God of War III has entered in an incredible position on Metacritic‘s ‘All-Time High Scores‘ list. The Santa Monica Studio epic is sitting in 8th position, only a few hours since the embargo was destroyed with the countless reviews for the title.

As you can see, it matches the metascore of Konami’s Metal Gear Solid 4. There are only two PlayStation 3 exclusive above the critically-acclaimed title, with LittleBigPlanet and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves receiving 95 and 96 respectively.

Don’t expect the game to be sitting on the eighth spot for too long, as more reviews will inevitably be pouring in during the coming days before God of War III’s release, and of course after the game releases from March 16th onwards.
