I was wondering which game can compare to God Of War 3 when it comes to setpieces and terms of scale?

Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3, Tomb Raider.
God of War Ascension.

Metal Gear Rising first chapter is a awesome set piece and large boss, but past that not really.
Castlevania has Titan Bosses but no set pieces iirc.

What this guys said.

The final boss of GoW:A is like the Poseidon battle on steroids... Probably the most impressive set-piece I ever saw in a game.

Uncharted has some decent ones but the series is a distant second compared to GoW3.

There is absolutely no game that conveys scale as effectively as the God of War Series. Conveying scale is so much more than just making something big. It has to feel big, and God of War does this better than any other game


Uncharted has some amazing Set Piece moments, but it doesn't convey scale on the level of God of War. If you want mind blowing scale, then check out Ascension. However, you should still check out the Uncharted Games man. They are definitely amazing and I actually think you may enjoy some of the moments that involve scale. They are a bit different seeing they are more grounded in reality, rather than fantasy as in GoW, but they can be fantastic nonetheless. Check them out


Uncharted 3 conveys scale the best, Uncharted 2 touches on scale a bit, and the Original has a couple of scale moments, but nothing to really go crazy over. It is still my fave of the 3 though. Check out these games, but Ascension is your best bet

Asura's Wrath is the only correct answer. Especially since it has many setpeices whose scale absolutely shames anything in GoW.

I forgot about Asura's Wrath, I beat that game a few times. Nothing bigger than Galactic sized enemies who poke the planet with their finger.
