God of War III Thread

Didn't see a thread for this one so I thought I'd make one.

After finishing off the GOW collection and seeing some of the leaked gameplay footage, I'm pretty ****ing pumped for this game right now. Graphically, it looks like it's on par with the best that consoles offer right now (Uncharted 2).

This is the leaked gameplay footage video that was released a week or so ago. It has some spoilers in it but if you've played GOW II you should have a pretty good idea what's going to happen in this one.


The hell with FFXIII, this game is going to own March.

I expect this game to even exceed the graphics of Uncharted... looks incredible.

Got 10/10 from Finnish games magazine Pelaaja. Doesn't do anything new or revolutionary, but does everything really well. Other reviewer might have given a 9 thouigh, had he been the one to give the score.

I didn't play god of war 1 until the second game was released and it was already being sold as a greatest hits title. I was really missing out, and I'm a pretty hard guy to buy games for, heavy rain, infamous, bioshock, GTA4....all the games that got good reviews or are popular I pretty much hated. I really like the god of war series and still play the first two on the ps2.

Pffft... you went to see Cop Out and somehow are passing on God of War?

I have the GoW collection but I don't think I have the time to finish the 2nd. Oh well, I'll just watch the ending on YT.

I don't even like action games and yet both God of War games are in my top 10 PS2 games list.

The game is awesome but Kratos is absurdly over rated as a character. "Hurr I'm super jacked and pissed off cause the Gods lied to me so I'll just kill everything". He's pretty much single handedly responsible for the hordes of BALD AND ANGRY video game protagonists over the past 5 years or so.

God of War 3 next week....Clash of the Titans next month....so much Greek I can barely take it.

that's what i like tho. i was always a fan of revenge stories and Kratos seeks vengence in the most gruesome of ways.

i love it.

When's the release date, or did I miss an obvious article that screams it ?

EDIT: saw the release date

I can't wait to play this on my 50 inch.

Meh, there's only so much you can do with revenge stories. But at this point in the trilogy it's not really about the story as much as the other stuff.

"Only" 94/100 at metacritic? Hmm, looks like the review on the Finnish magazine failed to point out some negative things that were mentioned in other reviews, like the game being shorter than previous versions and the story being better before as well and the "mundane ending".

is this what you're talkin about?

http://n4g.com/ps3/News-487862.aspx

EDIT: here's working video ...

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/-c...d-of-war/62769

those little 'mini games' have been a staple of the God of War games since the beginning.

this does look like the best one so far, tho.

Yeah, this is the kind of game that needs to be played on an HDTV. Just watching the footage blows my freaking mind, can't wait to play it. But like someone else said, I'll have to pick up the Collection first, never played the prequels.
