Spawn Kill: God of War III Demo Impressions

Spawn Kill's Snarkasaur writes:

"When it comes to God of War, despite being similar in real life to anti-hero Kratos, I'm fairly inexperienced. I played through the first game only a year or so ago, and enjoyed the pants off it. The series is known for gore, mythology references, and some of the best action you'll find in video games. The first game certainly wasn't without its flaws, but most of them were overshadowed by the epic adventure, massive boss fights, and fatalities to make Mortal Kombat veterans blush. With the imminent release of God of War III in early 2010, I was happy enough to lay my hands on a copy of the demo showcased at E3 this year. Always late to the boat, I nonetheless wanted to give my own thoughts on what I played."

I thought the god of war demo was great. There wasn't a lot of new things but the little new stuff they did show worked well. On the other hand, I don't see what everyone sees in dantes inferno I thought it was a cheap knock off and no where near the quality of god of war.

The story did seem enticing. Plus the demo also had some magic in there, so it felt complete.

It's just useless to judge God of War because it was pretty old version and didn't show off magic.

What God of War does exceed at is level design, and showing off its beautiful environments. They just need to tighten up the gameplay.

Dude Bungie if you read this, just take a break from all the trolling all day

My expectations are low for games like GoW. All they need is fun boss battles and I'm in!

Both requels over 2 and 3? Clowns. Those are two of the most boring games I've ever played.

Snookies12163d ago

GoW 3 was amazing, but I personally hated just one thing. (This is on me alone, because I was dumb, lol.) I hated that you couldn't skip cutscenes on repeat playthroughs. I had to go back through the game a third time because I missed one trophy accidentally on my way to the platinum... The cutscenes were great the first go round, even the second... But the third was pretty agonizing.

Haven't played Ragnarok, but I still think GoW 4 is a wonderful game in its own right. Not sure how I would stack them up against each other honestly.

Monstieur163d ago (Edited 163d ago )

I don't consider the reboot part of the original series. The original series were high-skill games with combos and rewards for mixing things up.

solideagle162d ago

lol square, square and triangle is the only combo you needed. I have played all of them on the hardest difficulties...

Golfcoachh163d ago

Maybe I’m just old school but I just couldn’t get into the last two. Maybe it’s the slower action and more story telling but the original trilogy was by far my favorite.

Crows90163d ago

It's not that youre old school. They're different genres

JL2930162d ago (Edited 162d ago )

Me either, at all. It's just yap yap yap. They try to be a RPG's instead of being action games like they used to be.

Fluke_Skywalker162d ago

I'd put the two psp games over 3 in terms of story any day. But not over 2.

My favorite was part 2 and I think Ragnarok is better that 2018.

Shane Kim163d ago

The newer games are better imo.

ravens52163d ago

There is no worst. Except for Ascension, only cause I didn't play it lol. They are all masterpieces. 1,2,3, 2018 and Ragnarok. 1 of, if not the greatest video game franchise...besides MetalGear.

Snookies12163d ago

Oh wow, I actually forgot that Ascension even existed... I never played it either.

Crows90163d ago

I like ascension. It was different and some interesting combat additions.

darthv72163d ago

If you didnt play it, how could you call it the worst? Its not as bad as the media portrayed it. Honestly the worst are those flash games. they arent even considered true GoW games but in name only. At least Ascension is a real GoW game.

ravens52162d ago

Not saying it's a terrible game. Just mean it's at the bottom of my list. I played a little bit of it. Jus to me, compared to the other main games, it's last.

Fluke_Skywalker162d ago

Ascension is the only GOW game I never finished. Hated it.

Inverno163d ago

Can't agree, older games do so much more than the last two. More weapons, magic abilities, enemies are more varied, level design is also more aesthetically pleasing, and agree with those who say that they shouldn't have removed jumping. Was a time I'd agree, but those old games are so so much better, that they really should've looked into bringing into the reboot/sequels.

Crows90163d ago (Edited 163d ago )

If a game is good then a game is good. Doesn't matter what came before or what comes after.

Inverno163d ago

Of course it matters. If not for what what came before there wouldn't be an after. And if something is great before then you strive to make it just as good if not better, after. I personally don't think there's a fair way to judge the new with the old because the newer games are still essentially a reboot, and went a way different direction. But I still believe the old games did it better. I'm probably bias though since I've been going back to old games and have been finding that they lack all the annoying aspects that devs have shoehorned into new games to fluff out game time.

Crows90162d ago


Im not talking about the passage of time here. Im talking about individual pieces of software. If a game is good then it is good. Thats not a controversial statement. You can compare good with good...sure. But you still end up with good. Now if there is a bad game in the mix and you compare you do end up with some differentials between them...makes sense to compare and see where it went wrong.

But theyre different genres and styles which were individually executed very well.

And no. The new games are not a reboot. Theyre a new direction but simply a continuation.
Tomb raider was a reboot.

Inverno162d ago

The new games are definitely a reboot, and a continuation, it can be both which it is. And a good game might be good, but my point is that if there are things done better before it then there's plenty of room for critiquing and trying to make whatever comes after better rather than just good.
