God of War 3 images

Because of some sort of internal team issue at Gamersyde, we have not been able to propose our review of God of War 3 so far. As we would not want to completely miss an opportunity to talk about the game, we managed to find you a bunch of images that should convince the most skeptical amongst you that the graphics and art direction are both top notch. The game is scheduled for release in about a week but you still have time to discover the first two episodes with God of War Collection, an excellent remastered version of the PS2 games.

Very amazing game, you can tell when game creators want to show us some hard and profesional work in a masterpiece. Not trying to throw anything what comes by hand into the market. That is why i like Sony and creators like Santa Monica studio. Keep up doing good things - entertaining us, but not waisting the time of our life. Applause!

I think its looks pretty average tbh, probably looks a lot better in motion.

I remember there was an article on the type of AA they are using... Has it been introduced after the demo? The demo was very jaggy.

These screens are however stunning

Whipped out the demo again, was just standing too close to the screen :) What a muppet. Can't wait for this

yeah, the game looks freaking jaw dropping, but i knew that ages ago. i've said it before and i'll say it again, the kratos character model is one of the best i've seen EVER. drake is probably better seeing as he uses double the amount of polys (80k as opposed to 40k in kratos) but my god he looks impressive, as does the game in general. can't wait to play it.

Again: play the demo to see the true graphics in motion. It's incredible.

wish they spend the same amount of effort in the envirenmonts wich lack a bit of design and quality, they did with kratos and some key enemys.

I think maybe it's how much you look at the environment versus the characters maybe? The characters all look freaking fantastic to me. A lot of the environments, especially in terms of textures, start to look pretty muddy at times. But like many say about this game, when you consider all that is going on it's still a really impressive game.

It might not be in the same league as uncharted or killzone 2, but it still looks pretty good for the most part. But I do think that the die hard fans of the game tend to really get carried away with the graphical praise of this game, but we see that for all the exclusives anymore it seems.

The setpieces seem darker than the previous games so that's interesting. It might not be better than the first two games (the impression I get from the reviews) in terms of diversity and such, but it still looks like a very fun rollercoaster type game. Mabye just a rent due to being super linear, but still a blast no less.

This game trumps Uncharted 2 visually, IMO. The Scale, modeling and lighting are all top notch. Drake may have more polys, but I think Kratos uses the polys he has more efficiently, and that is more impressive to me. Personally I think KZ2 doesn't come near this game, but it's no secret how I feel about that smoke-and-mirrors-fest...

Looks friggin' awesome.

The demo doesn't look all that jaw dropping, but the same section in the final game has been tweaked to look noticeably better.

Apparently, most of the game looks beautiful, but there are some areas with lackluster visuals that clash with the rest of the presentation. I'm sure it will be damn impressive overall.

I didn't think the demo was that jaggy, but their new AA solution apparently uses the SPUs and is more efficient. DigitalFoundry has an article up comparing the demo to the final version and it is damned impressive. Sony Santa Monica upped the detail and effects while increasing overall framerate.

I THINK Kratos is one sexy bastard... wah @.@ It's not handsome but it has that amazing bad-ass appeal. *Gay mode on*

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (26 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (26 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (38 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (40 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (42 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (44 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (45 minutes ago)
