    Good Game, If a Bit Overrated

    I'll say in terms of writing I think this is one of the better games to come along in the recent trend of "game as film." That is, the push to structure games as narrative films, and evoke cinematic technique and impact. The voice acting and banter between Kratos and Atreus is truly excellent, and visually God of War is quite a spectacle to behold. Does the gameplay reinvent the wheel? Not in particular, though treading established, solid ground is hardly worthy of criticism. I think this pushes the medium in a positive direction, however it didn't really hold my attention the way it seems to have held that of the millions of others who praise this to high heaven. Certainly worth a playthrough, but not the second coming, in my opinion.

    Surprisingly Strong

    I was one of the skeptics going into this game. I wasn't keen on the changes to combat, the homogenization into another open-world game, and what seemed to be clear imitation of The Last of Us. I'm glad to say that most of the worries I had were unfounded and God of War is a fantastic game. It's easily one of the best in the series if not the best, but it requires an open mind and willingness to accept change. There are some things I prefer about the previous entries, but there are many more that I prefer about this one. The story is compelling, a first for the series, the combat still remains serviceable (though not quite as button-mashingly fun as previous games), and the exploration is surprisingly interesting in a Metroidvania/Arkham way.

    God of War takes a character that was hard to relate to in Kratos, and takes a fresh approach to the character. A new setting, a new pantheon, and a new dynamic for the series helps breathe life and depth into Kratos. This game is gorgeous, and fun to play. The combat has weight and is satisfying to execute, and the story is intriguing, and worth savoring. The game is meaty, with plenty of open areas and side activities to help broaden the experience, without feeling like filler. While having played the rest of the series has added benefits to understanding the tragic history of the character, this game also works as a fresh start for newcomers, and easily sits with Horizon, and Uncharted 4/The Lost Legacy as a top tier, must have PS4 game.

    A longtime fan of the God of War games...

    Having been a fan of the games since the first, and original God of War game, I thought (like everyone else), that the last game, was the last game. But after years of silence, when they announced a new God of War, continuing Kratos' story as an older, wiser, more restrained demi-god (with A LOT of effort lol), in a new mythological land... I couldn't have been more excited! And this game does NOT disappoint. It's all there: the beautiful lands and locales, new gods and monsters, puzzles, and combat. And now we have rpg elements', his young son on the journey with him, and a mysterious story weaved in. It's a big, fun game, as usual and I highly recommend it. Oh, and the case artwork is reversible! The art on the other side is gorgeous! ☺

    This review is not a direct comparison to past God of War games, because this game is meant to be so much more. The developers have coated Kratos's newest adventure with a deep story that connects the player to the God of War in a very meaningful way. Even though it is a sequel, this game is a masterpiece of this generation that will be considered as one of the greats for many years to come by it's own merits. While the past titles made their own impact on the gaming industry, this one does the same at a higher level and for different reasons. It's truly a wonderful experience seeing how a developer is able to accomplish all of these things within one series. Can't wait to see which direction they take the next one.

    Probably the Game of the Year!

    I love to play role playing games with great story lines and in depth gameplay. With God of War you will get both and you can also choose your own path. If you are like me and want to explore and get every little extra item that will help you along the way (you can) or you can cruise throw and try your skills with lesser gear but makes you feel like a god when you knock out more formidable foes (Will be very difficult though! so be ready to die a million times). So if you are a fan of Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted, Tomb Raider and or Assassins Creed this game will definitely blow you away. Great game with great gameplay and you will lose yourself in the story! I give it a 10 so far and I am not done with the game yet! Have FUN!!!

    Amazing game. Immensely immersive. I finished the whole main story line in 2 days. Just could not stop playing. Fighting mechanics are pretty flawless. Being able to throw your axe and use your hands while its doing damage or even freezing other npcs is awesome. There is tons of norse mythology to learn about on the journey. Intriguing Stories including many of the gods are constantly told. I found myself staying in the canoe a few times just to hear mimir (a god but i dont want to spoil) finish off a story. OVERALL its a must have. I stopped playing ps4 games in preference of pc due to sales, etc but this is the First time ive felt good about spensing a full $60 on any game since Skyrim. Buy it.

    Amazing Gaming Experience

    About 2 hours of gameplay in, I am blown away. The level of detail put into this game, the cinematic quality, the responsive combat and overall experience make this a must buy for your PS4. I have never played a God of War game; this is the first in the franchise that I have played. I do not feel like I am lost or missing anything from not playing the prior games, however. This game would be enough to warrant a PS4 purchase for me, if I didn't own one. It's that good. Huge props to the developers. Even the voice acting is top-notch. The only caveat to this review is that I am not that far into the game and I do not know about the replayability or longevity of the game. But so far, I am having a blast and loving it.

    The game director in an interview said there would not be quicktime events https://www.theverge.com/2017/6/15/15811678/god-of-war-ps4-director-no-qtes-quick-time-events but there are. Yes is a GOW standard but I haet false advertising. The timed ax throwing puzzles in portions are so frustrating that they made me want to throw my controller through the tv. The mini boss battles start to get repetitive. I guess if you really love this franchise, you may like this game. I don't mind a challenge, but I want to have fun as well and not just be annoyed at the money wasted buying a game.

    God of War is a breath of fresh air from a series that has gotten to caught up in the same tired design. Combat is completely revamped and has a much deeper feel to it. With a wide array of difficulties to choose from you can tailor how hard you want to make the game. the difficulties range from face roll enemies easily to downright brutal to the point where you may get stuck for an hour+ in some places. The story is grand and never really gets dull in any particular area. Even while walking around you will get a lot of dialogue between the father and son so things will never be too quiet.

    You have to play this game on GOD OF WAR mode to experience the real game, not only will you develop god like reflexes to attacks by the time you reach the endgame you will have learned every combo and trick in the book to eliminate every enemy in such a stylish and brutal way you will feel like a GOD OF WAR, the story is great also we are not fighting for hate or vengeance anymore but for love and protecting our protagonist child and the game will truly make you feel for your characters in a way that will make you say to some bosses “don’t talk to me or my son ever again” all in all. Best game 2018 only con is no planned dlc but either way base game has enough content in itself to be called DLC.

    Fun game, but not Game of The Year

    The game is very fun. I applaud the developer for doing many things right in this game. It has a strong single player story, with fun gameplay mechanics that make you feel immersed. Despite a semi-linear / open world, the game does a good job of always keeping your interest. No Microtransactions and rewarding leveling system (albeit slightly confusing at first) One major negative is the combat. It can be cheesed with ease and many of the skills you have available to you are worthless. I feel they could have beefed this system up a bit better. Not quite game of the year, but a definite buy, especially if you find it on sale.

    "God of War" came as a surprise to fans of the franchise because of the drastic changes that it made to its original hack-and-slash format. Yet, the majority of fans embraced the game upon its release due to how well these changes were done. The game is just as violent as its predecessors, but there is an additional level of grit and realism to it due to its new presentation. In fact, many aspects of the game reminded me of what Naughty Dog did with Uncharted and The Last of Us, and I mean that as high praise. "God of War" is one of the best games of the year, and it's hard to imagine that many would be disappointed by their purchase of it.

    The Most Visually Impressive Game I've Ever Played

    God of War is the most visually stunning game that I've ever played. The visuals rival that of movies, and the story surpasses many films as well. The story of Kratos and Atreus is wonderful and moving as it shows a father and son's relationship shift as events in the world affect them in various ways. The visuals of the game made me a believer in HDR, as I had bought an HDR TV a few weeks prior to God of War. Once I started God of War, within five minutes, I was in awe of the HDR and the incredible visual effects of the game. It was my game of the yer for 2018 overall, and it is one of the best games of the generation in my opinion.

    Best Game Ever Made!

    The best game i've ever played, what could you possibly want in a modern game? Graphics, gameplay, sound and music, content, a good challenge, a good story and narative and inovation. Usually a game can get one of those things right and the rest of it ok, or good at best, botw for example inovates, the graphics are beautiful artisticaly but not impressive in terms of technology and etc... But god of war, all of those things are made perfectly, absolutely perfect un every single aspect. It's already impressive that the game does all of that at the same time, imagine doing that this good; it's unbelievable, it's mindblowingly good. This game literaly sets a new level for AAA games for the whole industry.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I first played this game. It is a very different type of game compared to the older God of War titles. The story, exploration, and combat are much more fleshed out and profound. The visuals are very nice overall. There are a few plot twists here or there that envelope you into the world of this game. You grow fond of the characters you encounter by the end of the game. There is also much challenge throughout the game even on modest difficulty settings. Overall, I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a RPG / exploration style game.

    This is an amazing game and a visual treat! Its a great addition to the God Of War franchise and is just what any hardcore GOW fan would expect from a next generation platform experience. The game-play is fluid and stunning though it takes a little bit of time to get used to coming from the older game's camera angles and game-play. The graphics are amazing and very fluid, not to mention some of the best graphics on this generation of consoles i have seen in some time. The attention to detail, the realism of the mechanics, and the single player 3rd person experience makes this a must have game for anyone with a Playstation 4.

    I wasn't the biggest fan of older god of war games but this is a totally different beast. The story is so much bigger than before takes you on a huge emotional journey. The combat is very different but different is good. The leviathan axe is a brutal close quarters weapon that you can also throw which feels so satisfying. Exploration is very prevalent but always optional and non Intrusive. The rpg elements are deep and reward experimentation to find just the right abilities for your play style. I played this game on a 4k t.v. with a ps4pro and high end headphones so i was constantly floored by the visuals and sound design. This game is one of the greats and everybody should give it a try.

    I haven't gotten far enough yet, but it's been pretty good so far. I don't feel as connected with the story this time around, as it is based on norse mythology and the overall plot / hook at the beginning is insignificant (we're going up the mountain just to spread some ashes for a 2nd wife?) Maybe if Kratos hadn't killed his first wife he wouldn't have to shelp up this mountain. The challenging gods are pretty weak too - some little whiny pathetic demigod who keeps moaning he can't feel pain the whole time is your first boss fight, and it just felt too basic. I feel like they are taking too long in getting me into the game. I hope it's the start of something more epic to come.
