New Clash of the Titans screens

Can the God of War-ified film tie-in capture the Harryhausen magic?

TODO alt text

Though they look crude by today%26rsquo;s standards, Ray Harryhausen%26rsquo;s stop-motion monsters were revolutionary for their time. The new film Clash of the Titans updates the special effects to modern blockbuster standards, but what we%26rsquo;ve seen so far of the game seems to lack the Harryhausen charm. This latest batch of screens does little to allay our fears that the game will be a series of arena battles, connected by rocky brown pathways and punctuated by quick time events that we%26rsquo;ll half-heartedly mash our way through for a glimpse at the Medusa or Kraken. Who needs game design when you have a Hollywood marketing budget?
