I had the exact same experience with God of War 3 (disappointed with a rental, returned it pretty quickly), but then the got it as a Christmas gift. Eventually, when I started it back up, I found it I quite liked it. A lot!
I'm not sure why it didn't hit me at the beginning, but as the game moves on it seemed to get better and better.
I'd be all for God of War 4, Vita or PS3!
