David Jaffe flips out about how good God of War III looks, we get excited

When it comes to God of War III, it doesn’t take much to get us excited. With Sony barely revealing the game at E3 with a CG teaser trailer, we’re already drooling all over ourselves not having seen a single frame of the game in action. 

But David Jaffe, the designer of the original PlayStation 2 title, has and certainly he liked what he saw. A lot. 

“I saw God of War III when I was in Santa Monica last week,” he writes on his blog, “I [can’t] and will not give away details, but I think it’s OK for me to say two things — HOLY HOLY HOLY F**KING HELL!!!!”

He then goes on to say that while he thought that Epic’s Xbox 360 exclusive Gears of War 2 was as good as any next-gen game could look, God of War III has proven him wrong. (He also refers to Gears of War 2 as “the s**t,” which is a more eloquent way of summarizing our own review.)

“This motherf**king game looks like nothing you’ve ever played,” he continues, “and you can hold me to that when this thing hits, when they start showing gameplay footage. It looks like a painting come to life, it’s that good looking.”

What’s that we hear in the distance? It’s the hype-train pulling into town, and the conductor is collecting tickets — who’s hopping on?
