It says so right on the recently released, still unofficially finalized box art, meaning your copy of God of War III could very well look different. Placeholder though it may be, it's both attractive and subtle.
Please No, looks to feminine
well if they follow tradition...it will be Kratos staring at something in the distance: http://www.gamershell.com/s... http://ps2.psu.com/media/go... http://pspmedia.ign.com/psp... Kratos' Face = Forbidden on Box Art ALTHOUGH...this would be SO much more badass http://icons.wegame.com/gam...
Technically Kratos' face isn't on that last boxart. muahahahahahahahaha
last boxart is incredible :)
Ill put that glourios game on my ps3 so fast that... You know, box lost day one
Maybe have Kratos' back to us, with a slew of enemies bearing down on him and maybe a hint that all this is taking place on a Titan's back? Or this is good. Either way it's a purchase for me.
Personally, I like the new box art. It strikes me as mature and serious- as in Kratos will kill you just by looking at you.
if they keep the tradition of kratos looking off at the distance, he should be looking up at mount olympus while standind around some burning buildings or something. they an add some sweet lightning at the top of the mountain and kratos can be in some sort of pose that makes it look like he's yelling "ZEUS!"
Subtle and not in your face. Highlighting the most recognizable part of Kratos. However I think for God Of War it needs to be in your face really doesn't it haha
its ok, but i would make it more darker
to be honest with you guys i say focuse more on game than box art though wouldbe cool for sexy box art :)
Now that's a bad ass looking boxart :D
thats nice looking.
We have a winner!!!
This should definitely be it, similar to the first two boxarts, with him looking towards something in the background. Stick to that formula, one of the best boxarts i've seen period.
I don't like the back though. it does fit with all of the other box arts. Showing Kratos' back and looking at something.
2-40 online multiplayer? That would be epic if the developers could somehow get that to work without making it feel tag on. I wonder what the fan who made this cover had in mind.
The box art in the Kotaku article looks more like a teaser poster than a game box. Suppose you had never played God of War and were browsing the shelves of Gamespot - would a picture of an eye actually catch your interest or tell you anything about what the game's like? Kratos standing at the ready with weapons drawn isn't as artsy but damned if it wouldn't get your attention. The image linked here looks like it's on the right track.
Yup that's it, that's exactly what it should be. The close up eye one is too understated and subtle. You don't want subtlety with this game. You want it to look as over the top and ridiculous as the Greek Gods have always been portrayed from the oldest statues to the technicolor movies.
If Sony decides to use just the face of Kratos for the U.S. cover art, I'd love it if it were this pic or something similar to it: http://www.flickr.com/photo... Sony really delivered on that God of War 3 poll earlier this year by making the Remastered versions of GOW1 and 2, and it would be great if they did the same for the God of War 3 cover art.... let the Playstation community vote on it.
Looks cool to me.
This should be the cover art pic
lol y y the disagrees thats hilarious i agree
I agree but if that was the boxart, children would cry and parents would explode in anger when they see it. Its just a bit too brutal for some people out there. I like these...
jeeze all the disagrees i got for kiddn, obviously this would not be a box art cover i just thought it was funny, jeeze is n4g run by moms now
Needs more blood.
I wouldn't mind if this was final. It has more deepness to it than just a random, badass action scene.
And before anybody goes on a rage filled storyline rant face it,it just isn't. God of War is all about epic badassery and it needs a badass cover.
Don't worry I won't go on a rage rant telling the story line. But, I will tell you that you're wrong. If GOW didn't have an epic story, it wouldn't be one of Sony's top games. Couple an epic story line with extreme badassness and you have one hell of a game. And yes, the cover definitely needs to be more badass than just a close up on Kratos' face.
In the way only a p*ssed off god-killing machine can be,but it isn't paticularily deep.
I'd expect Kratos standing in front of a bunch of baddies with some titans in the background. But this cover art looks cool.
i just think of that picture when i'm constipated, "AHHHH KRATOS!!!! AHHAH AH.....uhhh". and i get through the day
That pic is great, if i didn't know about GOW and saw that i would still get it
Looks amazing anyways. GOW III ONLY on PS3 and only POSSIBLE on PS3.
I would be okay with it if they darkened it a tad, took the mascara off his eyelashes, and threw a little dirt and little splats of blood on his face. Then it would be perfect... agree??
Stay with the art style they used for the first two is my two cents. I always liked this art piece... http://www.blogcdn.com/play...
LOOKS so ugly ..
