Comments on: God of War III: The First 30 Minutes http://riddlethos.com/2010/03/god-of-war-iii-the-first-30-minutes/ We're just like you... But we have a website!

At least from what I can tell. I had no side-by-side, and maybe it was the scale and awesomeness of the opening scene, but they just seemed to be noticeably better. Erm, well, I'd never compare God of War to Uncharted in any way except for visually... but we'll see. Graphics are better than the E3 demo. At least from what I can tell.

I'm hoping this is an indication as to the size and substance of its campaign.

I can only imagine how much better they look now. Santa Monica knows how to squeeze Sony hardware for all it's worth, that's for sure - I mean hell, they managed to make 1+2 look ALMOST next-gen. I can't wait to see what visual delights GoWIII has to offer. Is it bad that that's actually the most exciting aspect of the game for me? Anyway. Of course they couldn't get rid of the QTEs. It's a staple. A very stupid staple, but a staple nonetheless. I blame Alex Navarro of GameSpot. He sealed our fates all those years ago when he reviewed the original God of War: "...There are loads of these different contextual actions in the game, and they're all fantastic. They truly do a wonderful job of making you feel like you're right in the thick of the action, rather than just having you sit through a cutscene of your character doing something cool." No, Alex. No, no, no. Even in the E3 demo, I was drooling over the graphics. I can only imagine how much better they look now.
