PS3

Sony finally released some new medias of the much awaited God of War 3 via this image gallery and a trailer. The images themselves aren't really amazing, but the trailer shows something that's missing from them: The incredible scope of the gameplay. Amazing is the only word I can think of right now.

looks just fine for the rediculous scale. Hopefully they will crank up the number of enemies too. I like the animation, and the play looks sweet too. I am not, however, a fan of chain textures( brumak anyone)- it just looks cheap. Redesign please...

I´m probably gonna get bashed for it... but I didnt enjoy that much the first GoW. I just cannot share the huge amount of enthusiasm that people have for this title.. and the trailer, well, its ok, looks cool and all that. But I really wasnt THAT impressed by it. Imo its nothing more than a generic Action/cinematic/fight trailer, and I´ve seen a lot of this kind of videos already (Ninja Blade has tons of similar trailers out there).

But then again, I´m not that interested in the game so it might just be me.

this trailer was a big "fuck you" to all the doubters of the GOW team.:p
GOW3 is gonna be in a league of its own.
and the combat is looking to be a revolutionary step forward as well.

Looks like it's suffering from the same graphical issue's as Ninja Gaiden 2. Sharp, but dull lighting and textures. It all looks very flat and just not...well...impressive.

It seems cool in the trailers though, but it's probably all either cutscenes or QTE's. I'd like to see what the actual realtime combat has to offer. So far, not impressed...

The producer of this game told the press at the event awhile back when they unveiled this trailer that it was "100% real". I have no doubt that it was using ingame assets during most of the battle sequences, but I still think it's a bullshit statement. There's no way that the very beginning and very end were ingame. Anyway, it still looks great and I can't wait to get it next year and experience it for myself.

Those screenshots look like a PS2 game in HD. Seriously unimpressive in every aspect. I didn't care for the gameplay of the first God of War either, so I may end up actually skipping this one too.

Graphics look OK (the game is a year away) but there is too much "camera shake" which I just find super annoying. Just cool it with that shit developers its getting very stale in cinema and now getting overused in games.

I only played the first GOW and I don't really play the genre much but it was a great example compared to the likes of DMC, I might just check this out when it launches as I don't play the button bash genre that much (only when really special titles come along)

Only looked at the screens so far but they look sort of "meh" to me. After the powerhouse performance of GoW and GoW2 you sort of expect more than this :P
Ah well, hopefully it'll still be good.

check the links in my previous comment. they seem to be increasing the scale of the combat to match the scale of the game's visuals.

That is true I suppose, but do you know what else looked "meh" in screenshots back in the day? God of War.

It's pretty difficult to capture the appeal of these games in ways besides letting you play it. Even directed cutscenes don't convey what it's like to actually participate. There's a real immersive quality to God of War that doesn't really come out until you've got the controller in hand.

Too bad it's just the first trailer, but with the stuff they cut out. Was hoping for gameplay. Still, am no fan of GoW, just a spectator on the sidelines.

Ha! Didn't see that last bit at the end the first time I watched the trailer..that's pretty awesome when the woods are actually located on top of these weird creatures!

That kind of stuff might win me over, I love those epic and unusual sceneries. But the combat will have to be good and very low on the QTE's.

The enemy modelling and particularly their use of pixel shaders reminds me of Conan...

The music is great, but the graphics aren't that impressive. The scale looks nice, but i'll lose interest if it's going to be like in Heavenly Sword where the scale is only interacted through QTEs.

Increasing the scale is one thing, but that still won't make it a "revolutionary step forward in combat". It'll still play as a good hack'n'slash game with QTE(which are fun to look at, but about as anti-revolutionary as you can get in terms of gameplay.

Graphic-wh0res piss me off.

If you:
a) never liked the series to begin with
b) only care about the graphics and not what made the first two games awesome (gameplay, story)

then why are you even here?

None of the GoW games have disappointed so far (even the PSP one was great! and it was on a handheld!), why should we expect any less? The game is far from being released so plenty of time to satisfy everyone.
