Images and artworks of God of War 3

Images and artworks of God of War 3

Like us, Sony's still doing the scraps of E3. Today, they offer us some pictures and artworks from the now famous God of War 3 E3 demo. Even if there's nothing we haven't seen before, it's always a pleasure.

Oh boy! Those screens look quite average. We have all seen the game in motion and that wasnt impressive too!

Is GOW3 1080p?

the kratos character model is by far the most impressive i've seen in a game, his poly count and detail is through the roof, he actually stands out from the background most of the time becasue he is so detailed. as for the rest of the game, it's looking great imo, the fact it's going to be 1080p with an unlocked 60FPS is also freaking amazing....not that can take advantage of such resolutions with my 720p TV, but still, huge achievement on their part, a game that looks this good at 1080p. o_O

The lack of RAM of this machine is really starting to show; some textures are so flat and plain it hurts. For a game that literally shouts "coupons!" it's a big minus.
Man I'd go for a Ninja Gaiden 3 right now...

Don't think it's the consoles fault... have you played Killzone 2? Better textures than any game I've played on Xbox 360.

It's called "optimisation" and "progress" Orange.
We have seen muddy textures come and go over the months of development.
And this game still has 9+ months of development left.

Looking at screenshots all I feel is: This game was/ is and always will be the most Epic thing ever.

Graphically, this game reminds me of Too Human which really isnt a good thing.

Dude... I have a BSc in software engineering, don't teach a father how to make kids...
I'm just commenting on what I see. Whether they will improve (many devs throw in the 'real' things late on, I know) or remain 'optimized' as you say, and flat as I'd put it, remains to be seen.

@nepton: yes, played it. Guerilla actually did some pretty nifty tricks with the scene rendering, there are some papers on the net written by their principal coders, look them up if you're interested (masteratt, you should - maybe you'd actually learn the meaning of 'optimization'). I'm not saying nothing more can be done with the PS3, just that it's going to be damn hard. Blu-ray space isn't everything my friends.

i have a ps3 and have played killzone 2. i am sorry but there are plenty of standard plain textures in killzone 2.
uncharted looks better than killzone 2, IMO

This game looks terrible in every single screen shot. All future press releases should only be videos.

You people are so nitpicking it is unbeliable ,I have recently played god of war 1 on the ps3, and am now playing the 2nd one and the 3rd looks way, way better looking. This game is about the gameplay, but saying that it looks fantastic to me either in screenshots or videos.
Commented on 2009-06-25 20:09:14
Can't believe people are moaning. The graphical quality was shown during E3. Sure it isn't up there with the absolute best looking games out there, but not every game will be, will it? Hardly means it looks terrible.
Commented on 2009-06-25 20:57:43
Thanks for the screens snoopers

wow...some of the comments here have left me scratching my head...in motion this was EASILY one of the best looking games at e3...

to the guy with an ME avatar: GoW 3 definitely has some of the best character modelling, up there with ME actually, which I have played on pc with highest settings...

really, its seems like hate bandwaggons pick up here once in a while

wait, people actually think this will be 1080p native? yeah, right... a dev can say any game is 1080p if they want thanks to scaling, doesnt make it native

I don't see anything completely out of the ordinary with the character model of Kratos, much less the whole game.

Overall I think it looks "ok" and nothing else. The environments are empty as hell, some of the textures are downright sorry, and great part of the shadowing is horrible.

This image looks plain as hell, I don't know how to describe it.

And so does this one:

And pretty much them all. I assume I don't have to say why, now do I?

Please tell me that you either bought an HDTV before 1080P TVs were available (or at least before decent ones were available) or that it's a family TV that your parents bought randomly because they just wanted any old HDTV and are pretty ignorant of the technology? There shouldn't even be 720P HDTVs. (At least not, say, 32inch and over.)

they are going for native 1080p. they said so in an interview with gamespot. but they always have aimed for that resolution. the framerate on the other hand will fluctuate. it's not locked at 30, nor is it locked at 60, they're aiming for 60, and if it drops it will remain withing 30. that way they can get better performance in less complex scenes, but fall back on 30FPS in the crazy scenes.

becasue you hate everything? lol

and yes, i bought a 720p TV prior to 1080p sets. and it's 32", no need for 1080p at that size screen. its wasted. and i certainly dont need a TV bigger then 32".


EDIT: the fact this games gets such heated debate concerning it's visuals pretty much proves it's doing something right, killzone 2 was the same. some people just dont seem to be able to appreciate an awesome looking game....when it's exclusive...lol

I've got a suspicion it will be pseudo 1080P. (1280X1080 or less.) As long as the 2nd number is 1080 and it's progressive they can legally call it 1080P. (Even in theory 1X1080, although obviously that's completely ridiculous and would never happen.)

Just checking, lol! I don't know why you wouldn't want a TV bigger than 32inch though, unless you haven't got space for bigger? I would have got a 50inch instead of 40inch (haven't got space for bigger, although I would still "want" bigger) if I could have afforded it at the time.

i prefer the overall aesthetic and balance of a room over gigantasm TV screens. it isnt a case of room, it's a case of the room itself not working with a bigger screen, 32" is perfect.

Opinions on this game are pretty much going to come down to whether you liked the first two or not. Seeing as this is the last game in the series it would be stupid to radically change anything at this point and risk alienating those people who made it a success in the first place. All they need to do is make sure that this is a fitting end for the trilogy and go out with a bang.

As far as the graphics are concerned it seems that people have been spoiled somewhat by the likes of Killzone 2, Uncharted 2 and Crysis and now as a result have become major graphics whores. Everything gets compared to these games and if the visuals don't make the grade the game it's immediately put down. What the hell happened to gameplay being more important than graphics, besides this really doesn't look that bad, particularly when you consider the scale and number of enemies on screen.

I'm with you on this one Lebato, I haven't a clue why people are praising this game's visuals. It looks alright, that's it.

I bet if this was some kind of unknown franchise, people wouldn't be half as impressed with the visuals as they are now that it's the 'holy' GOW.

Oh well, carry on...

You got it right mate. Its called hypemachine i guess. Personally I cant see anything spectacular in these shots or gameplay clips. Solid slasher, not great, not bad.

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • 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. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours 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. (4 Hours ago)
