    I'm using a PS4 Pro on an LG 75" 4k TV. Visually, this game is amazing. The level of detail is just stunning. I'm only a little ways into it and the story is really good so far. The various puzzles require a little skill and thought so far, they seem to be ramping up as I go. Gameplay definitely deviates from previous GoW titles, it's taken the button mashing and refined it. You can still just button mash if you like but now theres the ability to vary your attacks and mix things up more. Gear customizing options like no previous GoW game had. Definitely dips into the RPG pool a little in that respect, in my opinion a nice improvement from the prior system. Overall great game.

    GoW breaks away from its traditional combo tracking combat with a more deliberate combat system that forces strategy and forgoes button mashing. You feel the weight of everything but you can move with the fluidity of a boxer. It feels great and satisfying when you clear a horde and Kratos acknowledges your skills. Those worrying about his son can forget that. He does not get in the way and can take care of himself. Similarities to The Last of Us are there. But that's not a bad thing. The game is gorgeous and game engine can keep up with the action. Some frame rate dips but nothing too distracting. I would recommend the Pro. I have a standard PS4 and that fan is working hard.

    There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said - God of War deserves every bit of the praise it has gotten. I've been a fan of the series since the first game until now. This game marks a huge departure from the tried and true model of the past, and its for the better. Epic scale, awesome graphics, a gripping & emotional story, combat that never gets boring, moments that you will remember for the rest of your gaming life. As a testament to how good this game is - my wife sat and watched me play through the entire story. I started a new play through the moment after I got the Platinum trophy. Do yourself a favor and play this game if you haven't already!

    do not play on GOW on hardest difficulty

    Game is very much enjoyable on NORMAL setting BALANCED that's how I play 90% of my games. Don't want to say too much (SPOILERS) but game has a good story to tell from beginning to end. "give me GOW difficulty" that's for die-hard gamers only. Watched people stream that mode and get way too frustrated 3 hits DEAD. only really complaint I have is one BOSS that you will see color variants through out the game is a simple CUT & PASTE. let me quote something a buddy of mine said "you can't just BUTTON MASH in this game. Have think about what you're doing" and if a particular BOSS is giving ya trouble just watch their movement patterns and look for an opening to attack

    Pros: -Beautiful (especially on a PS4 Pro with an OLED TV) -Fun gameplay with smooth controls in fight sequences -Great voice work -Epic boss fights Cons: -Some annoying collectible tasks that require returning to areas once you get necessary skills, etc. to get the platinum trophy -The story is OK (and appears to be leading to something grander in upcoming sequels) but doesn't cover a ton of ground in this game. -Way too many puzzles (in my personal opinion). They're fun for awhile but become rather repetitive. -The fast travel system is set up in such a way that you can end up having to backtrack for quite a ways before you can leave an area.

    I have to admit I've only played a God of War 3 and didn't actually complete the game. I enjoy a great hack and slash 3rd person action game, but avoided this series and stuck more to the Souls series and Assassin's Creed world. I have to say that I am completely blown away by this game, whether it be the amazingly stunning world created with it's superfine attention to detail, the intense level of immersion or the overall superb and thoroughly enjoyable experience. Way to go Santa Monica Studios for they have created what I believe to be the game of the year and one of the most stunning achievements on this generation of game console.

    I am pleasantly surprised at how engaged I am in the story of this game. The gameplay is fun, the interaction between the characters is fun, the pace of the game is great. I'm just suffering from lack of sleep now as a result. I really like the shift to the Norse mythology, and the fact that the nudity and sex aren't in the game makes it a better fit for my life and who can/shouldn't be in the room when I play. That said, there is a lot of over-the-top violence and animated gore, and there is profanity periodically during the character interaction, so be forewarned. Great work Sony.

    This game is nothing like previous God of war games. The biggest improvement is the camera = no more horrible semi-fixed camera. The game now has a normal over the shoulder camera. The combat has also been redesigned. The frenetic button mashing of the old games is gone. Combat now feels like it has weight to it. The level design is also much improved -- it feels very much inspired by dark souls level design. Also the main characters are much more nuanced and interesting than in past games.

    Favorite PS4 Story Game Yet

    This is by far the most engrossing and interesting PS4 game with a story driven narrative I've played yet. I am constantly interesting in the mythology and dialogue sequences about this game and I rarely feel as if I run into a scenario where I have to look up how to do something as the game naturally leads you towards solving various puzzles and challenges. Although not open world, I think I prefer a non-open world approach to help maintain focus on the story and keep the progression simple. (A problem I had with Horizon Zero Dawn and Fallout 4) The combat system is incredible and 25+ hours in, I am still floored to engage in even minor enemy combat.

    One of the best PS4 exclusives so far

    God of War is an amazing reimagining for the series and a perfect soft-reboot just when the series needed it. After a long series of action games, the standard GOW formula was getting sort of tiresome. But this new game? WOW. First off visually, it's amazing. The game never cuts its camera shot on the entire game stays in one continuous shot. It sounds like a simple thing, but in execution it's extremely unique and gives the game a special feel to it. Combat-wise, it's much more open and setting-wise, it's huge. This is also a game that deserves to be played on a 4K TV and PS4 Pro and really justifies the upgrade. I'd recommend this 100% to any gamer.

    This is the longest game of the entire series and it delivers in every way. Combat feels good, but ton of skills and abilities to unlock. Story is great. Sound and visual is top notch. tons of side contents. You also need to think and be tactical in a fight which make the combat even better for me. Difficulty setting for players of any skill level, and the "Give Me God of War" mode is extremely hard. Its the hardest mode I have ever played in my life and I been gaming for 28 years. Do not choose this mode unless your prepared to die in every encounters. You can be stuck for hours on a single fight. I still love this mode though.

    Best Exclusive for PS4

    I have been waiting for this release from the first rumored date. I played it on Day 1 and it did not disappoint. Graphics are good, gameplay is different from prior entries in the series (but makes the game its own). One of the features that I enjoy about this game is that it is somewhat open (if you cannot go somewhere, the game does not allow you to go) and it is non-linear when it allows for some open exploration. A great game and sits up there with the other PS4 exclusives released in the past 2 years (Uncharted 4, Uncharted Lost Legacy, Horizon: Zero Dawn). I like the older Kratos, now realizing the errors of his earlier sins. GET THIS GAME!

    This is like a combination of God of War and The Last of Us. This game did a lot of things right (story, world building, relationship between father and son, graphics, side quests, progression, and exploration). Nothing feels like a chore to me because I found enjoyment in exploration and finding rare treasure at the end of the endeavor. I didn’t think they could pull this game off because I really thought Kratos’s story should have ended after God of War 3. It could have been an ending. I’m glad I was wrong and these other 5 star reviews are not lying. This is genuinely an excellent game!

    One of the top PS4 games. Very immersive, great story, crisp controls on combat, awesome graphics, relatively quick load times, no lagging, intuitive interface. No major complaints about the game. I got the game on the release date, have played daily since then, and have not experienced any crashing or bugs. Ironically, there have been small updates each day, which I take as a good thing. Meaning, they are fixing issues promptly. Having a lot of fun with the game. Enjoying it a lot. Has a good balance of combat, puzzles, and exploring. Not a complete free world for roaming, but within each section you can pretty much free roam, which works for me.

    Amazing graphics

    My husband and sons are GLUED to this game. As a bystander I can say the graphics are amazing. It looks almost like watching a movie in HD. It's the same as other God of Wars with challenging combat but this time you have your son as a side kick. He hitches a ride on your back but is useful at times. My husband didn't love the new camera angle but once he adjusted it to his liking he never said another word. Since there isn't a ton of gore my whole family can play so my children take turns. This is a great buy and fun for everyone. I can't wait until there is another GOW released because i know it's a great gift for my husband.

    The original God of War on the PS2 was great, and each installment has added it’s own touch to the series. This game revamped the gameplay and started an all new stroy with new mechanics and characters. The open world like concept, the ability to control the camera angle, and the costumizable options in this game have helped to bring new life to this series. I recomend it to any God of War fan or anyone new to the series. No prior knowledge of the series is required, although it does give you more of a background into Kratos if you have played past games, this game will bring you up to speed if you are new to God of War.

    Didn't know how I'd feel about this one - it's even tougher to give you guys a review without giving too much away. :) Let's just say, there were some surprises I found very enjoyable within the game and my kind of humor when speaking with the NPCs. The game itself looks gorgeous and I thought the story line was excellent. I did find it a little repetitive at times - not grindy - but not substantially deep with different things to do - typical GoW game, frankly. Absolutely worth playing though and kept true to the gameplay of the originals. Highly recommended, if you have the scratch laying around...

    An Amazing Return of Kratos

    I preordered my copy on 4/17 and received it through UPS on the 20th. I have played the previous installments in the series which could be considered nearly generic hack and slash titles. This sequel does something the previous titles hadn't, it makes you care about the story and the characters far more than before. It's a journey of character/world development and shows how the main character has tried to change over the course of time from the previous title. It's always a great thing when the game is enjoyable when going for 100% completion. God of War will easily be competing for my personal game of the year spot.

    Whether you are new to the series or have been following the franchise since the beginning like I have, God of War is an excellent game and technical marvel in showcasing what the PS4 is capable of producing, in terms of graphic fidelity as well as gameplay. It offers a more grounded and personal story without losing any of the spectacle and deep mythology that the series is known for. The combat is versatile and caters to many playstyles, whether you're used to fast paced hack and slash adventures, slower paced tactical combat of Dark Souls, or anything else in between. This is not just a recommendation, this is a must play.

    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.
