Graphics Whore Showdown Round 11: Uncharted 2 vs God of War III

Uncharted 2 124 51.45%
 
God of War III 117 48.55%
 
Total:241

These two titles are arguably the best looking PS3 games and also one of the best looking games this generation period. God of War III's sense of scale is unparalled and although the game does rely on a fixed camera angle, it still manages to amaze in ways that few games can even come close to. Uncharted 2's texture detail and animations are unlike anything we have seen on consoles; the game does everything so beautifully that it's hard to tell whether you are watching a movie or playing a game. Let the voting begin!

Toughie...

At times, it's God of War 3 and the massive huge awesome set-pieces.

At other times, it's just anything at all in Uncharted 2...



I'm having to vote Uncharted 2. It made me go wow much more.



I think they both look amazing.



The colors in Uncharted 2 are like a magnet to me.

It's overall a prettier game imo.

God of War 3 but Uncharted 2 has more vivid colors.



I will let you know once I play Uncharted 2 sometime in the next few weeks. Just bought UC1 & 2 today and I have to play my games in order Am playing GoW3 right now and I have to say it is pretty epic. I haven't played KZ2 in a long time so I can't even compare GoW3 to that right now.

I guess what I am saying is that I'll come back to this thread in a few weeks and right now I'm just rambling... Lol



cant really compare without more screenshots should be atleast 15 + for each game and gameplay vids



 

 

Uncharted 2 for me. GoW3 looks great, but the fixed camera angle gives it a big advantage, and I think that if the engine was asked to support some of the levels in Uncharted 2 with free camera it'd struggle.

So I'm going to go with the overall more versatile engine vs the highly polished but I'd argue overly focused GoW3 engine. Also, I still think Uncharted 2 has better animation, etc.

But GoW3 sure looks pretty, just at a price in terms of very fixed gameplay and lack of free visual controls.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Thats not true. Whilst the camera angles are fixed, the camera itself does not follow a set path. =Tt doesn't give them any room to really optimise at all vs a free camera. The lack of free visual control is more a reflection on the fact that the game has heavy use of the face buttons than anything to do with optimisation.



Tease.
