God of War III / God of War II Comparison

PSLS writes:

God of War II released on the PS2 in March of 2007, only 4 months after the launch of the PS3. Fast forward to now. God of War III is a mere 3 weeks away and is the hottest topic in gaming at the moment, just as God of War II was back when it first released. Lets see how God of War II stands up against God of War III in terms of graphical prowess in these exclusive comparison shots…

What an epic diffence! That's the only way to describe the God of War series, EPIC!

Nambassa3923d ago (Edited 3923d ago )

or does God of War III gameplay actually look better than the CG?

Hanif-8763923d ago (Edited 3923d ago )

KILLZONE 2 is definitely one of the best looking games...its the only FPS that actually can compete against Crysis on a high-end PC :-)

MerkinMax3923d ago (Edited 3923d ago )

Sadly I have never played them and from what the reviews and fellow gamers have said, they are great games. My MW2 trade in at GameStop will cover it nicely.

starchild3923d ago

Well duh, you would expect it to look a lot better. I still don't think it looks as good as some fanboys are claiming. Played the demo and the screenshots look basically like a more polished version of the demo and it looks good, but not as good as it is being hyped to be.

D4RkNIKON3923d ago

I just bought it the other day too, have never played them before and let me tell you.. It is worth every penny! I don't know why I never played them before. The graphics are impressive upscaled to HD, the story and gameplay mechanics are great too. I have watched all of the behind the scenes footage from the disk for GOW2 and it was really cool too. Can't wait for GOW3!

Those screen shots look so much better in game in GOW3 than the CG cutscenes from GOW2.

D4RkNIKON3923d ago (Edited 3923d ago )

Yeah you are right, the graphics are good but not worth all of this hype. I mean GOW3 is no comparison to... Uhh. Hmmm.. Well come to think of it nothing else on any console compares so yeah. It is worth the hype.

@ below - Halo has been doing it for how long now? Sounds like you are looking for reasons to downplay the epic scale of GOW3. Nice try tho

evrfighter3923d ago

oh hey same bosses, same moves, same weapons even

-_-

best game evarRRRRrr!!!11!!

cmrbe3923d ago (Edited 3923d ago )

who did you want Kratos to fight?. Chuck Norris?. You do know its a trilogy right?..

skip2mylou3923d ago

who are u kidding evrfighter their is NEW WEAPONS, NEW CHARS, NEW LEVELS, NEW MOVE SETS, NEW STAGES, NEW GRAPHICS. what your saying is that Gears halo forza lost planet mass effect are all old too.

Saaking3923d ago (Edited 3923d ago )

That's a HUGE leap forward in just 3 years. LMAO, 360 fans actually called it GOW 2.5. Man, do they look foolish now.

If you haven't played the first two GOW games, then get the collection. GOWII actually looks better than some early 360 games and even some games released today. It's a must have for any gamer (seriously 2 epic games for just 30 bucks? insane deal).

GOWIII FTW!

EDIT: @evilblackcat

Wow man, thanks for confirming that it does.

"Is it just me or does God of War III gameplay actually look better than the CG?"

always compare the new games of this generation with CG graphics of this generation.

Do you wanna see CG graphics?

PM me and I'll send u the link to YouTube

shadow27973923d ago (Edited 3923d ago )

Starchild, have you seen the GameTrailer footage? I ask because I had basically the same impression until I saw that footage. Screenshots do not do this game justice.

Once you see the new build in motion, you'll understand the hype. Especially when scale is factored in. It really does look stunning.

"always compare the new games of this generation with CG graphics of this generation."

Why? CG always has hours upon hours to render a scene. Consoles have to do it instantly. For the PS3 to be able to surpass even early 90's CGI in real-time impresses the heck out of me.

Your statement is ridiculous.

8thnightvolley3922d ago

This game is SIICCKKK!!!!.. yo.. those that dont have a ps3 u are missing out BIG TIME.. i tell ya.. this game is mind buggling.. i have played the demo over 10 times already.. as in from the menu screen till the end of the demo no LOAD TIMES and the amount of stuff and the scale happening on the screen is just TOO FREAKING MUCH.. yo BELIEVE THE HYPE.. this is a sure contender for GOTY.. straight up!... i love my 360 but i will give credit to where its due.. ps3 firstparty developers knw what they are doing ... much respect.!

Udidntlistenpunk3922d ago

Lets not forget that (Im not saying you btw) half you people said some of the following just a month ago:

- "God of war 3 looks underwhelming"
- "Im not getting God of war 3"
- "Never played God of war series before and not playing God of war 3"
- "Looks like a rent to me"
- "Is it just me or is GOW3 looking underwhelming"
- "Graphically doesnt look better than Resistance"
- "E3 demo looks kinda the same"

What the hell was wrong with you people.

Personally, I NEVER doubted God of war 3. On Gametrailers, they had HD videos of the E3 demo during E3 2009 and those videos showed GOW3 looking JUST AS GOOD as Uncharted 2.

You are a believer now.

darthv723922d ago

I never saw the gow games for their detail and graphics. I saw them for their scale. The brutality part of the gameplay and story were big parts but for me it was all about the scale. The size of everything around you and how the screen adjusted to display even more environment at the right times.

First time facing off against rhodes or seeing the steeds of time off in the distance and then being able to run up on them. Simply amazing. It goes to show that the ps3 gow game will be continuing the scale of the ps2 versions while upping the ante graphically. Gameplay is classic kratos, scale is classic gow. You can't go wrong with that.

gameraxis3922d ago

now i remember why i ignored you in the first place, shame on me for clicking on your comment...

you just spit out ignorance no matter how true it is, there are obviously new weapons AS SHOWN, TOTALLY new bosses, AS SHOWN, and a plethora of new moves AS SHOWN... so why put down a comment that is so EASILY countered on EVERY POINT by someone who just saw the gametrailers episode? unless you are a COMPLETE fanboy... who doesn't care for the truth, and who only wants to portray his childish attitude..

LOL god of war 3 in game footage looks better then gow2 cg.

BigPete79783923d ago

I agree. They have made HUGE improvements in gaming. It's still shocking to me how far we have come graphics wise.

Nambassa3923d ago

Ahhh beat me to it... haha

Wicked Sick3922d ago (Edited 3922d ago )

Yeah, the last 2 screenshots with gaia and hades are from the cgi cinematics on PS2.

The PS3 counterparts are ingame and look much better then the PS2 cgi!

Its a great feat especially since GoW II was/is a technically impressive game.

JonnyBigBoss3923d ago

Just beat God of War II yesterday and then played the God of War III demo afterward. What a huge step up from an already incredible milestone.

n4gn4gn4gn4g3923d ago

PS3 graphics better than PS2 graphics.

Who knew!

ipwnall3923d ago

Everyone's that been saying GOW3 doesn't look that impressive can now shut the hell up (although they should have had their mouths shut a long time ago).

blitz06233923d ago

God of War 2 can even compete with older 360 games lol

EvilBlackCat3923d ago (Edited 3923d ago )

"Everyone's that been saying GOW3 doesn't look that impressive can now shut the hell up (although they should have had their mouths shut a long time ago)"

-If i remember correctly no one said that at least here in N4G.

-What i remember is that some people said that the gameplay is just more of the same but like i said "some people".

-What i like about GoW is the combos and scale but for me the story is just ... Greek mythology is not my thing you know. And what get my attention here is that at last we have almost a full in game content game here and not a game that depend on CG. I hope that the next games
and what i mean by next games are all the next game go like this >> NO CG <<.

and there go your fanboynism and hatin. you cant just be a gamer dont you?

blitz06233923d ago

How exactly am I hating?

Oh you can't answer my question, you only have 1 bubble

ryano232773922d ago

I played it for the 1st time 2 weeks ago, the PS2 version on my b/c PS3. Yeah there are some parts that do look like old graphics.

However there are scenes that are really quite spectacular to look at. (1st Titan you see - Kronos I think with his hairy chest was beautiful)

And I actually would say the proper GoW2 has better graphics than the imposter GoW2 (Gears of War 2 - horrible looking game)

There really is a huge difference between this generation of consoles and the last - and that is just looking at things from a graphical standpoint. The audio in games this gen is also a huge leap forward, with full surround and higher bit/sample rates. Crazy to see that in-game GoW III footage looks so much better than GoW II CGI!

doctorstrange3923d ago

This really shows what a vast improvement the PS3 is over the PS2. Looking at the game, not only from a graphical standpoint, but from a technical one, GOWIII is set to be a truly epic and spectacular experience, I really can't wait.
