E3 2008: God of War 3 First Look
Players: 1 Player Game | Genre: Action
As expected, Sony showed a very quick glimpse of God of War 3 for the PlayStation 3 during its press conference. And, what would seem like the perfect announcement to end a somewhat lackluster press conference, Sony tipped their hand by showing a picture of Kratos as a PS3 character early in the show and trailer was shown without any buildup or surprise. It was more of a “Here is a quick look at God of War 3” rather than a “Just wait until you see what we have for you” kind of announcement.
The trailer was very quick and didn't give any real details other than confirming its PlayStation 3 existence. The familiar voice over was present along with a brief explanation of the danger that was facing Olympus. Of course, only Kratos can save the day but we were warned that Kratos must suffer in the end.
The most exciting part was when the camera zoomed into Kratos and showed his face. The character model reminded me of Heavenly Sword and it appears that the game may look similar. However, whoever decided to greenlight the introduction to one of the biggest franchises Sony has with this type of trailer should be replaced. Gamers want to see a glimpse of gameplay, a taste of what is to come, and a reason to hope that this will be the biggest and best action game on the market.
We will just have to be content to use our imaginations for this until Sony gives us more details. Keep reading CVGames for the latest on God of War 3.
