not sure if this was already made or not? so decided to start it.. reviews so far for the game:

http://ps3.ign.com/articles/107/1075014p3.html

8.5 Presentation
The story is far from perfect, but huge props to Sony Santa Monica for once again including a ton of bonus content.
9.5 Graphics
It is at times the best-looking game ever, but not all assets were created equal. Still, you will be floored.
9.0 Sound
Fantastic soundtrack and great effects. Some of the voice work could be better, however.
9.5 Gameplay
The combat is nearly perfect, the scale is mind-boggling, and the brutality is rewarding. It's more of the same, but that's not too much of a complaint.
8.0 Lasting Appeal
It won't take much more than about 10 hours one time through, but collectables can bring you back, not to mention the Challenge rooms and Arena Battles.
9.3
Outstanding OVERALL

Apparently it cost $44 million to make GOW III. A little less than Gran Turismo.

http://kotaku.com/5488942/so-how-much-did-it-cost-to-make-god-of-war-iii


So, How Much Did It Cost To Make God Of War III?
It's not often we're told how much a company spends making a video game. So when Sony discloses how much coin was spent developing God Of War III, we'll note it down.

According to John Hight, from Sony's Santa Monica studio, the blockbuster cost USD$44 million. With the average cost of producing a current-gen game standing at $18-28 million, you can see Sony went the extra mile with this one.

Of course, even $44 million is nothing compared to Gran Turismo 5's reported budget of over $60 million.

03-09-2010, 10:20 AM
So their break even point is a couple million units still? I think GowIII will cover that NO PROBLEM. Not to mention it's a system seller for sure.

The only problem is, Sony doesn't have any PS3's to sell. None in the stores. They pick a hell of a time to have a console shortage.

Development cost correlate directly to development time and manpower. Look for games with big teams and long dev cycles.

You guys don't want to know what it cost to make The Saboteur. EA doesn't either.:lol: Consider that it was in development for 5 years at a large studio. All staffers salary, insurance, other compensation. THEN the licensing, hardware costs, office rental etc. etc.

You can see where that adds up pretty quick. Insomniac makes games for pennies. 7-8 month dev cycle. ~60 man team. Meets every milestone on time. They're the clockwork of game making.

Listening to a podcast from GDC with GOWIII game director- http://podcast.1010wins.com/wins/2262569.mp3

He's talking about possible free DLC in the future, something to do with the end of the game it sounds like- not just arena battles or costumes or dumb shit like that, either. Devs don't usually hint at DLC unless they know it's coming.


Oh and for all the demo haters, this is what the demo level looks like in the actual game (MAJOR SPOILERS DO NOT PRESS PLAY)-

i couldnt help myself and watched a vid of the first 20 minutes of gameplay from gamespot, and Kam, if you really have had a total media blackout on this game then im not going to spoil it but I can tell you that the first 20 minutes is some of the most action packed and epic gameplay ive ever seen in a video game.

i'll leave it at that

kamspy

I haven't seen anything outside the demo and the pics Eddie put up in the thread.:)


My media blackout thing has been REALLY panning out as far as game enjoyment goes. Uncharted 2 was 90% new to me the first time I played it. Mass Effect 2 was nearly 99% new to me.

Where as I'd spoiled games in the past by following too closely (I watched the entirety of Killzone 2 in .gif format before the game released. same with MW2 campaign.)


After really trying it, I HIGHLY recommend it. Makes games so much better. I didn't even know about the

Uncharted 2 early location spoiler
the part where you run towards the screen firing back at the truck and the whole entire train part.

After it passed I even thought about how awesome it was that I hadn't already been exposed to it. Highly recommended prerelease policy for games you know you are going to buy.

DigitalFoundry just did a comparison of the demo and retail code, nice improvements.

Back in 2005, Sony Santa Monica redefined the technical limitations of an entire console generation with the epic God of War. Five years later, the team has done it again with its debut PS3 outing. God of War III is magnificent.

Checking out the final God of War III review code, it is obvious that while impressive, the demo is simply not fully representative of the finished game. Understandably, extensive amounts of content didn't make it into the sampler, but more than that a range of visual effects have been added and performance has been improved considerably.

Perhaps the most obvious change to the game is an extensive retooling of the lighting scheme, which for the most part is now much richer and more realistic. Dark areas of the demo level now seem to more accurately represent the effect of the ambient light on the environment.

Bearing in mind just how much of a visual upgrade the game has had, it's impressive that the improvements do not restrict themselves simply to visual quality. Sony Santa Monica has achieved all of this while creating a faster, smoother game. In this video we have several different clips taken from a playthrough of the God of War III demo. These have then been matched with action taken from the same areas in the review copy of the game.

Link to digitalfoundry review (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-godofwariii-demo-vs-retail-blog-entry)


In the comparison video in the source link above you can see a side by side comparison of like for like scenes from the demo and retail code. The video has a frame rate ticker, the retail code runs at a noticeably higher frame rate consistently. This could be due to anti-aliasing being offloaded from the rsx to the cell using MLAA as Sony Santa Monica recently stated that tech would be used in GoW3. Look at the fourth set of pics and compare the jaggies around Kratos' head, ears, fingers and the dithering on Helios' hair.

Well I picked it up, even took my godson with me to get it (he didn't know that some games get midnight launches)

I've sat there playing for the last 3 hours straight and I gotta say I'm really impressed. The level of polish over the e3 demo is very noticeable, especially some of the textures and frame rates. The medusa's skin in particular gave me snake willies.

I won't put any spoilers but I will say this: GoW 3 is like meeting up with an old booty call that you haven't seen for five years... only now she has a huge rack, a models face, and a banging body :eyecrazy

PS3 guys you owe it to yourself to play this game. I'd even go so far as to say you should OWN this game.

I live 2-3 days from the nearest gamefly shipping center. I wonder how their business model works. I think they are counting on a lot of people clicking "keep" to keep themselves in business. Regardless I'll have GOW3 tomorrow, but I probably won't play it for some time. At least not till Heavy Rain is done which could be done this weekend I guess. And then there's awakenings which I couldn't resist. Little to do, so much time... scratch that, reverse it.

Yo guys quick question the the game has been availibile here all week for me to buy but I have'nt picked it up cuz I never got the chance to finish the first 2 games. Is this a continuing story arc or is this very much a standalone experience. I was going to wait till May after I got around to finishing the previous games before playing 3 but the launch trailer looks too good. Let me know as I could be playing if story not too important. From what I gathered before it was a sin to pass on the first 2 before playing the third is this still true.

The story quite literally picks up where the second one stopped. You could play it alone I suppose and it would still be pretty epic, but you would be missing out on the all original starting story.

Story isn't hugely important since it's pretty simple storyline and there's a summary on godofwar.com, but if you skipped the first 2 it would be the equivalent of premature ejaculation. The first 2 games are masterpieces. Hell, if you jumped into GOWII without playing the first one it'd be a big mistake.

God of War 3 maintains what the GoW series has always been, and does it very well. The action is relentless, the story is interesting, and the gameplay is great. One of the most well done ends to a series, it is definitive GoW all the way to the closing credits.

The swingy chain thingy aren't very tactile. Very hard to focus an attack on a single enemy without going woop de woop all over the screen.

I actually think Darksiders has better combat. Not to mentioned Bayonetta.

Though GOWIII is several orders of magnitude better than those games overall.... (errr Darksiders is shockingly close come to think about it).


I wish I could use the sword you use in rage mode in normal mode. I need some tactility!

ALSO!

Anyone with the E3 demo still insalled. They nerfed the LFE channel in the retail release.:(

In the demo, every time you pound the ground with a ▲ attack it made my subwoofer pound. Doesn't do that in the retail game. Well, it does -sometimes- but I can't figure out any rhyme or reason for when it does it.

Do a back and forth if you don't know what I mean. God I loved the sound design in the E3 demo. That LFE was probably making little TV speakers bottom out in internal testing though.:(

The dirty poors have tarnished another great product for us men.

glow, the story of chains of olympus is really good, you get to find out how the titan Atlas became the one that holds up the earth, there is a moment with kratos and his daughter that forces kratos to make a decision that really justifies why he is so enraged with everything, it just fleshes out the character a tiny bit and adds to the whole mythology. Its a prequel to the first god of war story and is set 5 years into kratos 10 year service of the gods.

Good, but it's hard to mash the O button to kill dudes with your thumbs all cramped.

The scale is in line with the PS2 GOW games. I wouldn't skip it. It's a God of War game through and through. Probably the most impressive technical accomplishment on PSP, though Resistance rivals it.

It offers up and interesting bit of GOW plot too. It's definitely in the same cannon. It's not a one-off cash in or anything.

you have to grab one of the smaller grunts and use them as a battering ram to hit the bigger enemies, you can get 2 hits per grunt before Kratos throws them off the arena its important that you utilise this as it effectively cuts the time it takes to kill an enemy in half, if your lucky you can position the bigger enemies to fall out of the arena for an insta kill as they stumble back when you hit them (but you can still complete the challenge without them falling out it just makes it a bit easier)

The big thing is that when you get the big O indicator over the enemies for a finishing move DONT USE IT, it takes up too much time, just grab another grunt and 1 hit from it will kill them.

I'm loving the gameplay in GOWIII a LOT, this is a friggin amazing game. People on NeoGAF who have played Crysis on high have been impressed, pretty good for a console that's hard to program for. :cool: But there is some kind of Modern Warfare 2 syndrome happening here, it feels like the game is pandering to a younger demographic. The first 2 GOWs felt more "mature" imo, does anyone agree with me? Also, dude who does the Kratos voice sounds a lot more like himself than he does Kratos if you get what I mean... but then again that could just be the increased audio quality...

I am not done with the game yet but I kind of get what your saying, also the voice actor who does Kratos kind of shocked me as I pictured someone else completely.

Yeah I was shocked to see the guy who voiced Kratos was black but I saw that in a video during my time playing GOW II, but you can really hear his voice clearly in this game and he sounds more.... well, like a black guy. Not that it's a bad thing, just feels a bit weird when he sounded different before.

I agree it was a shock at first as I had pictured some crazy bad ass voicing the most bad ass video game character of all time. I bet its just the high def audio as it still sounds like Kratos but different :lol:

Its funny I mean I remember him from a TV show I used to watch and when I look back I can totally hear it in his voice. Its just so unassuming which is whats hilarious..


Back on topic, I really need to get some time off from work, I have not touched a video game since last friday!!! I dont think ive gone a week without gaming in quite some time, I did log on the 30th to see what the new maps were for BC2. I guess I shouldnt complain since at least my job is secure as its ridiculously busy.

Yup that was the show and when I look back I can totally hear it, I was going to see if I can dig up an old show to watch it again, although it would be hard to take him seriously..

Ohh man I totally have withdrawals, I get on my PS3 but I dont have time to dedicate to this crazy awesome game and I wont do it in 15-20 minute incriments, Kratos will not have that :lol:

Oh well I have some time off next week so I expect to go through a couple of games to feed my addiction :thumbsup:
