God of War trilogy video

God of War trilogy video

I finally received my retail copy of God of War 3 so it is now time to show you a bit of one of the most anticipated titles from Sony in 2010. So everyone can realize how far we have come since the impressive first two games were released on Playstation 2, we decided to include extracts from the opening sequences of all three games in this exclusive video. It should also remind you how talented the guys at Santa Monica Studio were back in the glory days of the Playstation 2. The videos from the first two games have been captured from God of War Collection.

Trilogy

FINALLY!!! downloading now.

WOW, best fucking console graphics to date, hands down. the anti-aliasing used is phenomenal, the lighting and shadows is a league of it's own. and how they managed to have such high texture resolution at that scale is simple breathtaking, all at a rock solid framerate. where are all the doubters now.lol Kratos' character model is rediculously detailed, i can't think of a more detailed character model in a game(maybe drake, but that's debatable :P).

I still haven't received my ultimate trilogy edition from game as yet. :(
as always, best video quality on the net guys, keep it up. :)

and to think that stig said that they're only using 50% of their engine's potential atm. 0.0 i shudder to think what their next game is gonna look like. the postman better bring my copy today. ;)

GoW3 is great and all, but I wish they could include Ares armor from GoW2 which Kratos uses in the beginning of the game (look at the video).

That is by far the best design for Kratos, because his default is just ugly.

But yeah, visually the game has come very far.
Obvious changes from GoW1 to GoW2 and both was on PS2.
Make me wonder what these devs will do after GoW3 on PS3, I bet much better :)

gah im going thru it right now and the game is an absolute blast to play, and to watch. without trying to spoil things, theres was one fight that made the infamous fire extinguisher scene from the movie Irreversible look like a sesamy street episode. man this *** is ** ** brutal !!

i think you've forgotten that after his fight with the colossus of rhodes, all of that armor was destroyed just before zeus stabbed him with the blade of olympus. besides, in GOW3 he is no longer a god, and only referred to as the ghost of sparta, so his ashed skin would be the appropraite focal point, not armor. ;)

I dont remember much from GoW2 but if you say that then sure, but still, its a extra outfit for its look and nothing more.
However in GoW3 all extra outfits has "status" for its damage, health...etc. so adding Ares armor would be nice, or atleast they could have designed a similair full on armor like that.

But its all good, I got Dominus outfit from my Limited Edition, I will buy the Morpheus outfit as well once its on DLC (no 7-Eleven offers here in Sweden).

just as a refresher, see the following vid. ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVqzN6fEg6g
i hope all of those skins will be included in my ultimate trilogy edition, i'll definitely NOT be buying anything else after spending £110. :)

I can't stop playing this frigging game, it's just so damn good.
I love that kratos is even more angry than in the previous games, that guy has some serious rage issues, the finisher in the poseidon fight was deliciously brutal.

I am sure all pre-orders offers will come to PSN Store soon, they usually do!

PS. Yes, spending that much money on a CE is alot, you dont quite want to spend more.

I know what you're talking about and won't spoil anything. It was indeed some brutal violence. But man, it was amazingly done. Not for kids ;o)

Seriously good game. The engine is doing some pretty spectacular things in terms of lighting, detail and overall quality. There are parts of the game that look like CGI.
Commented on 2010-03-22 15:17:55
I wish there are more mini games, you know what I mean...
Commented on 2010-03-22 15:49:53
This game is really awesome, and stunning at times! The issues I have with it are that you cannot carry over your power ups and weapons to a new game, even on the same difficulty, that makes it annoying to get the trophy for fully upgrading all weapons. The cutscenes cannot be skipped, ever....and the framerate, while good, is not locked at any rate and so it fluctuates and its sometimes noticeable. A locked and stable framerate would have been great but its good anyway. One of the scenes near the end was just mindblowing

GoW is not only about graphics though, it's also a very nicely crafted game in it's design and gameplay. They took out most of the bad platform puzzles after the first game, after realizing it's not Prince of Persia and the controls and camera sucks for that purpose. Something Visceral Games apparently didn't take note of, cause Dante's Inferno is full of the same kind of frustrating puzzles that nobody likes. This alone makes GoW infinitely better than Dante's Inferno.

But for all the praise I can give GoW, I'm happy this is the last we see of Kratos. His story was surprisingly interesting in the first game, but now he's just angry all the time and it doesn't really matter it seems. Kind of lost his plot after the second game. So kudos to Santa Monica for ending the series with style, instead of beating the old carcass for another decade. Looking forward to the next project!

I think some people are too preoccupied by how attractive male video game characters are.

Graphics are probably my favourite this gen...insane scale and detail. I remembered expecting that from lair, but it really underdelivered for me. This blows away what that game only promised

The hate was derived from the motion controls, most people took back what they said about the game once the patch allowed for analogue controls.
Commented on 2010-03-23 09:52:10
Many got scared because of motion controls and how the reviews turned out.

I didnt buy it until the analog patch was available, I thought it was pretty good. Nice fantasy world for any dragon war fanatic with amazing score and nice scale/visuals.

This is what they should have done though, giving people option to play it like normal/classic which is with analog.
I dont like to be forced on for a certain gameplay, especially when its something new. I was against motion controls from the getgo this gen...go classic! :)

yet to play lair i have it, got it for 2 pound brand new lol.

Great series and I am not kratos fan, gore is sick. But Kratos is badass lol

Sony Santa Monica have done tremendous job. 60fps cap would have been bad idea this game look cgi, mind blowing. Best gfx if you ask me.
