God Of War III Out March 16th


gow3

It’s official God Of War III is out in little over a month on March 16th (March 19th in Europe) and that pic up there, well that’s the cover. I like the design its ambiguous with its close-up shot of his eye showing his intensity. It works for with the game’s themes and is is sutible for its context. I was worried it would be another standard character posing, looking heroic and all actiony like this or this, but thankfully it’s not.

Sony also announced a new trailer will be on SPIKE’s GameTrailers TV February 11th. Hit the jump to see pics of the Ultimate Edition.

    I dont get what people like soo much about this game.. Its ok.. but I mean how hard is it to run around swinging a sword on a rope that spins around the whole screen killing everything in its way?? Just run, jump and push the button as fast as u can.. skill?? i didnt use any playing through the demo

    The first fanboy. @oly1kenobi have u ever heard the sayin “if it aint broke dont fix it” GoW 1&2 have been highly successful using the same combat mechanic. Why in the hell would u change it now. Ur jus mad cuz xbox 360 can run a game of this calibur, jus like Uncharted 2. I use to think jus like u, thinkin xbox was the better system, then i got my head on straight and realized that xbox 360 could never match up to ps3 when developers develop the game rite. So go enjoy ur halo and STFU……but watch your back cuz Kratos might be around the next corner to slice u and ur 360 in half. You’ve been warned.

    Royalty…please calm down. There are right and wrong ways to respond.

    With that said…I sort of agree with kenobi…but I don’t agree that this game does not require skill….it definately does.

    But I’m with him on not being a fan of this game and not really understanding the complete and total adoration of this game by fans.

    @Eddie no hard feelins jus havin some fun wit the kid. Its not so much on combat that has ppl ragin bout this game. Its more about the scale of the game. I mean come on u have giant titans interactin with the world as ur fighting. No game has been this huge in scale, only two come close in MGS4 and U2. Also u have to pay attention to detail. Like with evry strike u say Kratos’s muscle actually tense up. Every ps3 owner should be excited about this game. Im more pumped for GoW3 than i was Uncharted 2.

    It’s the story and the fluidity of the controls. Ancient Greek mythology was always interesting (though, GoW always used creative liberties to change some of it up), but the star itself is the fluidity of the controls because the games, ever since GoW1, had some of the most responsive controls in any game, and mastering the combos was something everyone took part in. And this was also a series that effectively used QTEs as well, with the finishing moves of both bosses and creatures such as the minotaur and the cyclops. IMO, its the best hack-and-slash action series out there!

    Why does everyone like this? Thats easy, cuz Everything else SUCKS! (as far as hack-n-slashers go) Nuff said
