    Powerful story, great gameplay

    A major change from previous GOW games, this one throws you right into the action. Each swing of your weapon feels unlike any other game as you land each hit. The connection to your character is unparalleled and the combat in this game is terrific. Light RPG elements make the game fun and entices you to want to explore as much as possible. By the end I was only wishing it was longer, clocking in at about 20 hours. The story is amazing with surprises at every turn. I truly felt immersed and driven to play this daily. Recommended to anyone who loves mythology and the GOW franchise. Strong Last of Us vibes.

    God of War is the best reason to purchase a PS4 Pro. First time players, and veterans to the GOW franchise will be satisfied. The graphics, storyline, and gameplay fully immerse you in all the action. The vast open worlds you explore with Kratos and his son are unforgettable. The visuals leave you captivated by how the developers paid attention to every detail. The cutscenes and gameplay are blended so well that you will become mesmerized. I highly recommend you play GOW on a 4K tv with HDR. This way you get the full effect of the magic, lore, and all the things that make God of War an instant classic. -Perfekto

    Reminiscent of The Last of Us

    God of War is a great game to revitalize the franchise. I enjoyed playing the previous games, but I did not think they were the best game out there. They were enjoyable and had an interesting subject matter, but they were mainly meant for the combat. God of War has an intriguing plot line and involves a father-son dynamic which is unlike any other God of War game. Gameplay-wise, the controls and fluidity of combat are well done. The graphics are amazing and I am being challenged with the various difficulty settings. I would recommend this to a friend, although I would not rate it as highly as others (10/10 or 5/5).

    Kratos in a whole new light

    God of War PS4 is a fresh new start for the series. Now taking place in Norse mythology, Kratos now lives in the Norse lands with his son Atreus. His wife has passed and her dying wish is to scatter her ashes at the highest peak. Now Kratos embarks on a journey while training his son to become a warrior while controlling his rage. It has a revamped battle system that is more like Dark Souls and less like a hack and slash. It makes for a more challenging game. The graphics are some of the best in gaming right now and the story is absolutely fantastic from start to finish. I highly recommend you pick up this winner.

    Don't need to play previous games to enjoy

    This is the kind of game you don't really have to be 100% familiarized with the story in order to enjoy. In fact, I can argue the opposite: the less familiarized you are with God of War, the more you will enjoy this. The game has beautiful graphics and a nice story. Some people (particularly those familiarized with GOW) are a bit annoyed by "boy." By now, you have probably seen or heard about the memes. Don't let that discourage you. And at $24.99 (at the time of this review) is a total steal. Even the regular price of $39.99 is a good deal for this game.

    Nothing like the previous GOW games. The story is pretty good so far, I like the dynamic between Kratos and Atreus. Their relationship over the course of the game evolves and I would not want the game without the boy. Has some RPG skill and loot mechanics and creative levels with Metroid like back tracking. Also has challenging enemies that are in certain places if you can find them...hope you are leveled up and have the right gear on. This game is superb and one of the best games I have played since Horizon Zero Dawn. I have around 16 hours in so far and still enjoying it and not done with the main story yet.

    It was a decent enough game One of the biggest advantages this game had was that anytime I failed anything whether it was a challenge or a boss I could at least look at it and figure out what went wrong (wrong move, upgrades needed, etc). The good Fighting is a bit of a change but not hard to adapt to after changing the control scheme to I think it was called "classic". Story is decent enough for what it is The time traveling doesn't feel like a total waste due to certain details being given in conversation The bad Too many meaningless collectibles (ravens/artifacts mostly). Enjoyed the lore though.

    This is not like any of the previous titles in this series. Instead of a wide view of the terrain the camera is always over Kratos' shoulder. Combat is done with an Axe that reminds me of Thor's hammer instead of the Blades of Chaos. The game really shines in its story. It is about Kratos and his son as they ascend the tallest peak in Midgar (this game uses Norse mythology instead of Greek since all of those Gods are dead now) and spread his wife's ashes as per her request. I have not completed the game yet but it is very compelling with top notch voice acting and insane graphics. Highly recommended to anybody.

    Definitely a great buy. I was not really hyped for the game because I've never really been a God of War fan, but this game blew me away. Everything, from the combat, characters and visuals, was spectacular. I truly enjoyed the challenge it presented. The combat is very smooth and keeps you on your toes. The armor system allows you to cater to your own playstyle. The exploration was great, it didn't make you feel restricted to a linear experience. What I truly enjoyed was that we finally get to see a different side of Kratos not just him being angry all the time. Can't wait to see what they come up with next!

    The visuals in the game are just breath taking. The amount of content to this game is just incredible. You can just do the bare minimum and it will still take several hours to complete. By the time you add in the optionals and collectibles and upgrades you are easily looking at at least 30 hours of game play. This game is a great open world experience that still keeps you tied to the story with the conversations while traveling that makes it feel like you never venture from the story even when doing optional quests. This is just such an immersive experience that is great to the end.

    I'm not too far into the game (I'd say 5ish hours) - but I'm really enjoying it. I haven't played a God of War game since the first one, but the graphics and story so far are amazing. Haven't done much research - but I'm not playing it on a PS4 pro, I'm playing on my Glacier White PS4 that came out with the original Destiny game. During some intense cut-scenes or playing for 45-60min straight, the standard PS4 is noticeably struggling fan noise wise. Doesn't appear to have any impact on playing the game itself, just something to note for those of us who don't want to upgrade to another PS4 yet.

    Way more complicated than previous God of War games - so much different it is not really the same game. Aim assist is limited and there are many timed puzzles which are frustratingly difficult if you don’t regularly play console game. Put this same game on a pc and I’d breeze through it on a hard setting. Maps are confusing and not really much help - need to figure out where that treasure map leads or the favor goes next? Good luck with that - not on the map. But other than requiring great twitch control of the analog controller the gameplay is good, and the changes they made to the game work well.

    Keeping this short; the main differences between this game and the previous entries are the ommission of a dedicated jump button, aerial combos, and fast paced action. Kratos has aged and his fighting style shows it. He is no longer the brute he was when he was destroying Ares,Hades, and Zeus, but he isn't a slouch either. The environments are not linear, so you can return if you missed a collectible the first run through, and if you love collecting this game is chock full of stuff to pick up. If you're in the need for a new Action/Adventure game after beating Horizon, then this is the game to get!

    I have not played all the way through yet but 10 to 15 hours into it I can honestly say it's the best game I ever played and I play a lot of games. God of War is always been a favorite of mine but this new one takes the story of Kratos to another level fair warning this game is very addictive and you won't want to stop playing for a while. The only thing that could make this game better is the hope that we can get some single player DLC soon. If you don't have this game yet what are you waiting for drop what you're doing drive to Best Buy right now and buy it you won't be disappointed I promise

    A successful reboot of one of the most brutal hack-and-slash action games, and it's remarkable fun. The core gameplay has changed significantly, and it's a risk that won't appeal to some orthodox God of War fans. But it turns out that those new game mechanics are so well-crafted and of course it's great overhaul from past God of War Series. From it's remarkable visuals, living world, superb combat, Kratos’ new beginning is loaded with action and is easily one of the best games of this generation. I can’t stop thinking about its world and characters. I had so much fun exploring it and its combat.

    This game has very nice graphics, but the controls are absolutely abysmal. It's kind of like a beautiful woman who is horrible in bed. It's worth a try if you played the other games, but expect absolute unresponsiveness early and often. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone. I find it criminal that this garbage won game of the year.

    I have played this game for about 10 hours or so, it has pretty good story so far and good graphics. I like the customizability of Kratos and the boy with weapon and gear enhancements. While it is not completely open world eventually you will get to a point where it appears more open world to be explored. Only negative has been how often he uses the term "boy". Boy, I tell you what - it gets pretty annoying. Otherwise it is a solid game so far. Not quite as action packed as the first GOW series but a good twist from the usual

    After his vengeance against the Olympic pantheon of gods, Kratos finds himself in the land told the Norse. As a long time god of war fan I was worried about the reboot, but not only was I wrong to be worried, it surpassed any expectation I had. The greatest game so far I’m this generation of consoles , it’s a shame it won’t get the credit it deserves for not having multiplayer. And to those who oppose Kratos beware, remember this guy offed his whole step family and his daddy, then went on and killed other gods from different lands. You next

    This game is a reboot of the long-running God of War series, and it is by far the best game on the series, as well as one of the best games available on the PS4. You do not need to play any of the previous games before this one as it is a reboot. It's a great game to just pick up and play. The combat is amazing and the gameplay is a great mix of combat and puzzle solving. The voice acting is top notch and graphically speaking, the game is a masterpiece. You would be hard pressed to find a better game out there at the moment. I would highly recommend this to everyone.

    A rebellious son, a father recovering from anger issues, and Norse gods that send you into disbelief after learning that they are not quite as the Marvel series depicts them as: God of war is undoubtedly the best game of 2018 so far. Diverging from the original formula of slash-slash-kill, this game has a narrative depth other games can only hope to get close to. The relationship between Kratos and Atreus is one that unfolds beautifully throughout the story as Kratos learns to be a good father all whilst dealing with a rebellious son. Play this game now.
