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

Renting God of War 3 soon but since IGN did show God of War 3's gfx to be inconsistent in a few places I'll go with Uncharted 2 at this moment. I'll have a better conclusion once I've played it.

Uncharted 2 looks better but GoW3 framerate is like 20 frames above...
Still, visuals alone into consideration, the right vote goes to U2.



 

 

 

 

 

For me, there was no question. God of War III.



                                                                                                                                            

I'm actually shocked that many of you think Uncharted 2 looks better. God of War III looks cleaner, has FAR richer details (crisper textures, a good deal more anti-aliasing, and smoother framerate). Not to mention that Kratos absolutely blows Drake's character model away.

There was no question IMO, God of War III is the most impressive visual showcase to date.



                                                                                                                                            

I think GOW3 but honestly a few screenshots is no way of comparing the 2 games. Is anyone able to get animated pictures of the 2 like the ones of Killzone 2 that was plastered in a lot of peoples sigs. Sorry I don't know what people call those things

Yeah there the images I'm talking about. Screenshots don't do those two games any justice. They look much better brounght to life.



Both have points 1 seems visually superior to the other...



I'd say GoW3 due to the lighting and little use of bloom and more use of soft shadows, god rays and so on. Truer/natural lighting in my opinion is what games should be going for.



From what I've seen till now (played GoW3 finally for the first time today) and I'm up to the "demo" level (city of olympia):

Character models and animation are level above anything else including Uncharted. The Gods and Kratos are mindblowing. The whole game really does look like living painting, I can't see any other title getting close to it for some time, one thing is to look at pictures (those first two look like old build tbh), other is to see it in motion. Uncharted 2 has great art style, but comparing it to God of War 3 is like comparing comic ilustration to the work of Rubens (style wise, both games are very impressive from technical standpoint). GoW3 is not very strong on textures, that's where UC2 has no equal amongst any other game.



MY HYPE LIST: 1) Gran Turismo 5; 2) Civilization V; 3) Starcraft II; 4) The Last Guardian; 5) Metal Gear Solid: Rising
