So this furthers my observation. Look at the pics of the two demos (GOW3 and Ascension)......the water in Ascension looks horrible. GOW 3 the water looks like water and not like lava with white foam. Also, Kratos' face looks grittier and alot more detailed in the GOW3 demo. These are two completely different gamnes as far as lighting , shading ,etc.......but in my opinion Stig nailed it has far as the realistic style vs Papy's more colorful, uncharted 3 kind of look. Ask people whoo own Uncharted 2 and 3.....alot of people thought 3 looked a littluncharted 2 looked far superior to 3, mainly because 3 looked a little too brilliant and colored. Again, no disrespect but I feel like Ascensions demo looks worse, although maybe this demo is a far earlier byuild than what the GOW3 was at when shown. Because when I reached the point of the demo in the actual build of GOW3 i could not believe how much more polished it was . I was floored. I am hoping the same will happen to Ascension, but the 30 second trailer showing that horrible manticore dahed my hopes. Stop the viseo when they show it flying towards Kratos and you will see what I am talking about. Absolutely no detail, almost like the outlined and colored him in but did not bother to shade or texture it.
I know what you mean about Uncharted 2 and 3. I liked how 2 looked, it wasn't very bright compared to U3 but the shadowing was so much more detailed. U3 looks so odd, when I was playing the beta and I was inside the chateau and looking out into the front yard everything looked like it was made of clay. Things lack detail and is replaced by insane brightness.
Ascension seems to be the same, with less detail and that odd sense of lighting.
Though with GoW 3, some things looked AWESOME, other things looked not polished at all and other things were just "meh". It's not like GoW3's graphics were godly all around but from what I've seen ascension doesn't seem to look as good.
I can't wait for the game to come out and for it to prove me wrong but right now I can't help but feel that graphically the only strides forward will be the brightness but everything so much less detailed.

I cannot argue with a person when he cannot write well enough to understand him.......he clearly is not reading what I am writing as well. Anyway to all who think the graphics are better than god of war 3 demo you need to PLAY them both to see what I am trying to get across. Combat and control wise I believe Ascension definitley feels more responsive for sure. I just do not think the same level of detail is being implemented visually in Ascension as it was in GOW 3.
Galibis, do us all and yourself a favor and just stop writing. Please. Just stop embarrassing yourself.
I expect the graphics to be at least on par with GOW3, I doubt they could get any better, if they can it will not be much. The ps3 and xbox have been pretty much pushed to their limits, they have gotten as good as they're gonna get. Uncharted 2, 3 and GOW3 being the main examples for the limits of the ps3, all 3 of which look amazing considering the 6 year old hardware.
I'm gonna photoshop both halves of the faces of GOW:A and GOW3, since they are opposite sides of each other. You will be able to tell the differences there. They are not too far apart actually. Will post when done.
